Evan Healy Skin Care DEMO – Wednesday, Dec 11th, 4-7 pm

Find Evan Healy Skin Care Products at Perelandra in Brooklyn

The Evan Healy Skin Care line was created by aestetician Evan Healy. Her holistic approach to skin care draws from traditional plant lore, aromatherapy, ayurveda, and homeopathy. Evan has borrowed from the wisdom of nature utilizing many certified organic ingredients such as nourishing nut and seed oils, herbal extracts, homeopathically prepared flower essences, pure plant hydrosols, and fresh, steam-distilled essential oils to create her cleansing milks, werums, creams, emulsions, butters, and natural clays.

Her holistic, successful and long-term solution is to support the totality of skin functions using simple plant-based formulations and non-invasive treatment methods.  This encourages the skin, with its innate ability to regulate itself, to breathe.  Evan Healy Skin Care heals, repairs, refreshes, and regenerates a wide variety of skin conditions from oily, sensitive and blemished to dry, dehydrated, inflamed and delicate…and all of the subtle nuances that lay between.  Learn more about Evan’s approach to skin care by visiting her website.

Perelandra’s Picks: Evan Healy Holistic Skin Care

When choosing new items for our health and beauty department, we look for products with high quality ingredients that are made without artificial colors, preservatives or other unnecessary chemical additives. Beauty products made with organic ingredients are a big plus, and we also look for products that are cruelty-free and produced without animal testing.

Perelandra tries products from every line that we sell before we decide whether or not we want to sell it.  We often give samples to our staff members and cosmetologist to try as well, so our decision is heavily based on our experience with the product.

We also aim to offer a variety of skin care lines so that we have products that will meet the needs of anyone who comes in. If you have dry skin, combination skin, oily skin, acne prone skin, sensitive skin, easily irritated/reddened skin, have eczema or psoriasis, we have products that will address your particular condition and have licensed professionals on staff to help you find the right product for your specific needs.

Perelandra is a big fan of Evan Healy skin care. The products are formulated by Evan Healy, an esthetician, and are focused on promoting skin health by supporting your skins natural function and balance rather than interfering with acids or other chemical exfoliants.

They use many organic ingredients in their products and take great care with the manufacture of their essential oils and hydrosols. They smell great (especially the whipped shea butter and the lemon-thyme hydrosol) and have a really great feel on the skin. Our VP of Operations is a huge fan of the tea tree oil cleanser and lemon thyme hydrosol and finds them to be a great match for her combination-oily skin.

Evan Healy

Evan Healy

In 1986 Evan trained as an aesthetician in the US, and with a European-based organization already using bio-dynamically grown Demeter-certified herbs, flowers, plants and homeopathic remedies in their skin and body care products.  In 1988 she opened a private practice in San Diego specializing in holistic treatments for skin and body.  Her approach, based on holistic and naturopathic principles, challenges some of society’s fundamental beliefs relating to beauty, aging and care of the skin.  Her philosophy is founded on the premise that the less you interfere with the skin’s own ability to achieve balance, the better.

Her postgraduate work has included in-depth study with European aromatherapits Malte Hozzel, PhD and Deitrich Gumbel, PhD and in the US, aromatherapist Kurt Schnaubelt, PhD.  She is a student of Dr. Vasant Lad of the Ayurvedic Institute, Albuquerque; she has traveled to India to study Ayurveda in its birthplace.  Evan is a graduate of the International Dermal Institute, Los Angeles, and has a diploma from the British Institute of Homeopathy, Bach Flower Therapy.

In 1999 she co-founded the EvanHealy brand of skin and body care products featuring simple plant-based, certified organic ingredients.  She sources plant material directly from snakk, regional farms in various parts of the world:  a widow’s group in Ghana provides her with raw, unbleached shea butter at fair-trade prices; family-owned farms in Washington, Oregon and California are sources for organic  hydrosols and nourishing plant, seed and nut oils, and self-governed winen’s cooperatives in Morocco are responsible for sustainably harvested argan oil.

Find Evan Healy products at Perelandra Natural Foods in Brooklyn.  Try samples on Wednesday, December 11th, for the Evan Healy Skin Care DEMO, from 4:00 – 7:00 pm.

Perelandra is a proud sponsor of Cranksgiving!

Bike Ride, Food Drive

Cranksgiving is a food drive on two wheels. It’s part bike ride, part food drive, part scavenger hunt. Cranksgiving has been held annually in New York City since 1999. Ever since its beginnings it has been adopted by organizers in numerous cities in one form or another where all types of cyclists participate to have fun while benefiting a local charity.

Cranksgiving started as one of several annual bike messenger “alleycat” races in New York City. Each year it is held on the Saturday before Thanksgiving as a way for messengers and other urban cyclists to socialize, compete, and enjoy themselves while also raising food for local soup kitchens or food pantries in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Even though the roots of Cranksgiving began among hard working messengers, with its spread the event also demonstrates how almost any person can use their bicycle as a means of transportation for typical shopping errands. Riding a bicycle also contributes to a person’s good health through exercise and the resulting reduction of air and noise pollution. A bike also reconnects people to their communities by slowing them down a little and providing exposure to a person’s neighbors and surrounding environment.

Join the Cranksgiving Food Drive on Saturday, November 23rd
Bring a bike, a bag, a lock, and about $15-$20 to buy food. All of the food collected at grocery stores will be benefit City Harvest via the Bowery Mission. Every year, Cranksgiving helps provide hundreds of needy families with a wealth of food during the week of Thanksgiving.
