Organic Orschmanic is a useful approach to many of the fads in life. For example, ‘organic’ farming actually uses some hideous poisons in production and tend to have lower yields per hectare with no substantive difference in fruit and vegetable quality for that bigger footprint.
However, there are some nuances we would do well to pay attention to and these involve applying petrochemicals to our skin in personal hygeine habits that have not been properly trialled or tested.
That is ‘why’ we spent the evening with Barbara Gare, one of the founders of Y Natural.
Y Natural combines the luxury normally associated with prestige European brands of skincare and haircare without the presence of questionable chemicals.

|00:19:53||Barbara Gare, Y Natural|
We typically have a lot of trust in products from big brands but when it comes to haircare, skincare, costmetics and anti-persperants, it appears that some of these products have very little research behind them to ensure they’re safe.
Tonight we talk to Barbara Gare, one of the founders of Y Natural, about WHY she believed the world needed another brand of luxurious skincare and haircare products.
Barbara references these articles in her discussion

Y Natural has a page on Ingredients To Avoid, which we heartily recommend visiting.

And our song this week is Voice Of The Forest composed by Quincy Grant for Slingsby Theatre’s production, The Young King. It features Clara Gillam Grant and Emma Horwood on vocals.
This is from the final moments of The Young King experience. The show ends without a curtain call. In the last few seconds of the story a new world (literally) is revealed to the audience. The audience then travel with the cast through a portal into this new world of possibilities. The Voice of the Forest accompanies this transition.
