Dangerous Beauty Part I: Color Me Safely: A New Era in Non-Toxic Hair color

Today’s show brings revolutionary news in beauty. In fact, this could easily represent the most important safety breakthrough in beauty in our lifetime, particularly if you color your hair, or are thinking about it. This is one show you don’t want to miss. This revolution in beauty heralds the beginning of the end of an era of one of the most toxic beauty practices of all: synthetic hair coloring.

Rumors circulated among prominent toxicologists that even Jackie O’s demise might have been from her constant dark hair coloring. It was the same form of cancer that she died from that is seen in disproportionate numbers among practicing cosmetologists who handle permanent hair color every day. And yet, with all the smoking-gun studies, no technology could be developed to create a truly permanent, dark hair color product (not even the so-called “natural hair colors”) without the infamous ingredient, PPD.... Until now.

Kat is joined today first by two fascinating pioneers in  the color cosmetics chemistry and environmentally responsible beauty fields to discuss what she calls one of the final frontiers in natural beauty: permanent hair coloring. Alex Vainshelboim, Ph.D and President and Founder of Palette by Nature, manufacturers of the first all-natural, permanent and environmentally sustainable hair color. has more than 25 years of experience in research and product development in the areas of hair sciences including dyes and color as well as personal care and cosmetics. As a research director at Aveda for many years, he was involved in the development of natural alternatives to synthetic materials and petrochemicals.  Seeing the need for a truly natural and effective non-toxic alternative to traditional hair color, Dr Vainshelboim combined his extensive experience with cutting edge science to create the first range of 100% natural permanent hair coloring products.  He is the recipient of several academic and industrial achievement awards, including Award for Establishment of “First Holistic Cosmetic Congress”. With almost 20 years in the beauty industry, his partner, David Blum, has worked with companies such as Aveda, Clairol, Barneys and Target. A firm believer that outer beauty is a function of inner wellness, David has spent the last decade working with natural and organic formulations to raise awareness about the products people use and their interconnectedness between personal and planetary health. He is currently Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Act by Nature.

Offering an invaluable perspective on the practical uses, challenges, and challenges in a woman’s (or man’s) daily beauty practices of this new natural cosmetic technology in haircolor is Christine Shahin, and natural hair color consultant, seasoned environmental activist, and owner of Faces of Astarte, a natural skin and hair care consulting company. With years of involvement from local to international boards on environmental issues, Christine has been a forerunner in the green beauty movement, having opened one of the first all natural beauty salons in New York state in 1990. Until recently, Christine was recognized as a top henna hair coloring specialist. Now she has added this new 100% natural permanent hair coloring breakthrough to her repertoire of non-toxic options for the informed, health- and environmentally-committed consumer.
