Sunscreen is ONE Part of a Sun-Healthy Lifestyle

Kasia Makes EWG LIST of Best Sunscreens!

Sunscreen is just one part of a sun-healthy lifestyle.

It's important to spend time outdoors, but by incorporating some common-sense protective measures, we can play outside while still minimizing our exposure to UV rays.

1 USE SUNSCREEN that's effective and safe. Start with our "best" list. Make sure the SPF is 30 or higher. Buy new sunscreen every year and avoid powders and sprays.
2 GET YOUR VITAMIN D. Many Americans have low levels of Vitamin D. Sunlight triggers the skin to make this vitamin. The American Medical Association recommends that everyone get 10 minutes of direct sun (without sunscreen) several times per week.
3 KEEP KIDS SAFE since they're more sensitive to sun damage. Use sunscreen, play in the shade, and keep infants out of direct sun as much as possible. Check our special sun safety tips for kids below.
4 AVOID EXCESSIVE MIDDAY SUN WHEN INTENSITY PEAKS. Summer sun is more intense between 10 and 4, also at high altitudes and in the tropics.
5 SEEK SHADE OR BRING YOUR OWN. Cover up with a shirt, hat, and UV-protective sunglasses. Remember that invisible rays can reflect up toward you from the ground, so you may still need sunscreen if you wear a hat.
6 SLOP ON SUNSCREEN AND REAPPLY OFTEN. Put it on before you go out in the sun. Sunscreen washes off in water and can break down in the sun — reapply often. Wear daily on skin not covered by clothing.
7 AVOID PRODUCTS WITH BUG REPELLENT. You don't typically need them at the same time of day, and the mixture of ingredients leads to greater amounts of the pesticide soaking through the skin.
8 CHECK THE UV INDEX when planning outdoor activities.
9 SKIP SUNLAMPS AND TANNING BEDS Artificial tanning beds dramatically increase the risk of melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer. Tanning bed use before age 30 is especially risky.
10 CHECK YOUR SKIN for spots and changes, and remember that natural tone (not just tan) is beautiful. You know your skin best, so examine it for changes, lesions, and spots regularly. Be extra careful if you have freckles, moles, take certain medications (such as some antibiotics), or have a family history of skin cancer. Early detection is best, so consult your doctor for more information.

Sun Safety Tips For Kids

Kids are more vulnerable to damage caused by the sun. A few blistering sunburns in childhood can double a person's lifetime chances of developing serious forms of skin cancer. Keep your family safe in the sun by using a sunscreen that's effective and safe. Take these special precautions with infants and children:


Infants under 6 months should be kept out of direct sun as much as possible. Their skin is not yet protected by melanin. So when you take your infant outside, take special care:

  • COVER UP your baby's sensitive skin with protective clothing, tightly woven but loose-fitting, and a sun hat.
  • MAKE SHADE with your stroller's canopy or hood. If you can't find a shady spot to sit, put up an umbrella.
  • AVOID SUN DURING MIDDAY — take walks in the early morning or late afternoon.
  • FOLLOW PRODUCT WARNINGS FOR SUNSCREEN ON INFANTS UNDER 6 MONTHS OLD - Most manufacturers advise to avoid use for infants or to consult a doctor before using. The American Academy of Pediatrics now says that small amounts of sunscreen can be used on infants as a last resort when shade is not available.


Sunscreen is an essential part of any day in the sun. However, young children have skin that is especially sensitive to chemical allergens, as well as the sun's UV rays. When choosing a sunscreen, keep these tips in mind:

  • TEST THE SUNSCREEN by applying a small amount on the inside of your child's wrist the day before you plan to use it. If an irritation or rash develops at any time, try another product. Ask your child's doctor to suggest one that will not irritate.
  • SLOP ON SUNSCREEN and reapply often, especially if your child is playing in the water or sweating a lot.


Children should exercise healthy habits for outdoor play while at school. Sometimes school policies interfere with children's sun safety. Many schools see sunscreen as a medicine, and require written permission to use it, or require that the school nurse apply it. Other schools ban hats and sunglasses on campus. Here are a few questions to ask your school:

  • What is the policy on sun safety?
  • Is there shade on the playground?
  • Are outdoor activities scheduled to avoid the midday sun?


Fashion-conscious teenagers may seek a tanned look through sunbathing, tanning salons, or use of self-tanning products. Each of these activities carries health consequences. Overexposure to the sun increases the risk of skin cancer. The tan obtained at a salon can also damage the skin — in fact, the UV radiation in tanning parlors can be as much as 15 times that of the sun. The chemicals in self-tanning products have not been tested for safety; the major self-tanning chemical, dihydroxyacetone, is not approved by FDA for use in cosmetics around the eyes.

Your teen should know that being tan does not mean being healthy. Here are a few more tips to help your teen stay healthy:

  • MAKE SUNSCREEN A ROUTINE part of any outdoor sport or activity.
  • FIND FASHIONABLE SUN PROTECTION clothing, hats, and sunglasses.
  • PARENTS OF TEENS: BE A GOOD ROLE MODEL — be sure to let your teen see you protecting yourself from the sun.

The Cocktail of a Chemical: Informed Beauty Guide.

We tend to forget that the skin is the largest organ of the body,and every day we apply a chemical cocktail of substances in ignorant bliss, there is continual studies suggesting that up to 60% of anything applied topically can be absorbed into our bodies. As the average woman uses up to 10-14 different skincare and cosmetic products each day, this calculates a high level of different chemicals each year seeping into our systems.

So why does this matter?

With many of the synthetic ingredients used in everyday skin care being potentially toxic to humans, you may like to reconsider some of the following:

Petrochemical derived ingredients (such as mineral oil) are extensively used in skin care as they help prevent water loss. While this may seem beneficial, they actually prevent the skin from breathing by forming an occlusive barrier, disrupting the skins normal functioning.

Parabens (a common preservative) have demonstrated oestrogen mimicking activity which disrupts the body's normal hormonal balance. In addition, parabens have also been shown to cause abnormalities in cell reproduction, an issue also associated with cancerous cells.

Sodium Laurel Sulphate (SLS) (a foaming agent) used in toothpaste, shampoo and foaming cleansers. Numerous trials showed that SLS can increase transdermal water loss causing the skin to become dehydrated and cause skin irritation.

Phthalates are a group of synthetic chemicals that are used in the production of various substances such as plastics, beauty products and artificial fragrances. Phthalates can interfere with reproductive tissues in both men and women leading to issues such as infertility and birth defects. Specifically it targets the testes in men and breast tissue in women.

Parfum and synthetic fragrances are the most common cause of adverse skin reactions. Propylene glycol is implicated in contact dermatitis, kidney damage and liver abnormalities. It also damages cell membranes causing rashes, dry skin and surface damage.

Finding safe and natural products can often be confusing - at Kasia Organic Salon, we have removed any guessing game from your "Beautiful Health" hair, skin, and service needs.

Ultimately, what you use on your hair or skin is an individual choice, and issues such as skincare goals, sensitivities or allergies, and personal values need to be taken into consideration. If you do choose to avoid ingredients such as those above the best way to do so is by reading product labels and making an informed decision. But if reading packages is not your style, it's usually safe to say that organic ingredients are best.

Kasia Organic Salon continues to launch options that are safe for you and your family.  Drop us a line or stop in for a consultation and learn more about our Ammonia Free Hair Color, Smoothing treatments, Medical Grade Facials, and more!

organic all-purpose cleaner



Common laundry detergents contain phosphates, ammonia, phenol, brighteners, artificial fragrances, EDTA and SLS, all which can remain 
on your clothes after washing.

. . . perfect for sensitive skin (such as eczema, psoriasis and allergies) because they are naturally antibacterial, antifungal and antimicrobial.

I found Platinum Seamless 2 years ago, but apprehensive of the investment and maintaining the integrity of my clients hair.   To put it to the test, 6 months ago, I started/referred a client of mine (blondy wanting volume and length) to Faatemah. I watched the transition, and is why we now are CERTIFIED. When my client returned to be colored after Faatemah's extensions were removed......ZERO BREAKAGE, and seemed fuller to me!

Thy system is amazing, innovative, and no longer just a luxury.

These took me (first time) only 60 minutes to apply! They are fully secure, non toxic, and real - BEAUTIFUL HAIR!

What is Babo?

"This certified organic blend of rich and powerful anti-inflammatory ingredients, vitamins and anti-oxidants was exclusively designed for a baby or child's delicate skin to achieve optimal protection."

When Tribeca mom Kate Solomon, a beauty industry vet, started looking for high-end organic haircare products that were good enough for her baby, she came up dry.

So the mother of two developed her own brand, Babo Botanicals, a line of paraben, vegan and sulfate-free products made on a certified organic farm in upstate New York.

Why Babo?

At Kasia Organic Salon we are committed to listening to our clients needs and suggestions.  A children's shampoo and DETANGLER were amongst  many of our mother's top non toxic "search list" as of late - as one of Kasia's priorities as well!

In my experience in health coaching and Functional Medicine, we value Babo's absolute VOID in harsh ingredients that contribute to rising numbers of our children with peanut, gluten, ezcema, "etc."

Baby yourself with the solution-oriented products, such as Oatmilk Calendula Shampoo and Bodywash for sensitive skin or UV Cucumber Aloe Vera Sport Conditioning Spray to protect hair from chlorine, salt and sun.

(If you're on the baby shower circuit, the perfect gift for moms-to-be.)

DETANGLE ME! We love the Cucumber Aloe detangler for the kiddo's and ALL our guests who have that certain type of hair that is constantly a "jungle gym" after a shampoo.

The Cucumber Aloe Vera line (shampoo + detangler) is specially formulated for swim, sun and active play - it helps remove chlorine, salt and grime and protects hair from UV damage. Babo Botanical's Oatmilk Calendula Moisturizing Baby Lotion and Shampoo A yummy lotion and shampoo uses nourishing botanicals to soothe and protect sensitive skin.
