[watch this!] ORESTA and Stark Skincare on CTV!

July 26, 2012

ORESTA Organic Skin Confectionery has been carrying Stark for a couple of months now. They are a trifecta of gorgeous boutique spas in Ottawa, that look more like eco-friendly art galleries than somewhere to get your skincare on. We like that aspect of ORESTA. Buying natural skincare shouldn’t feel like a clinical experience. Old-time Apothecary-like, sure, but feeling wary of a speculum sneaking up behind you? Not so much.
No, ORESTA does it right. Not only are the locations gorgeous, but they carry some of the best of the uber-clean brands around, from some of the bigger names like Kahina, to little indie brands even I haven’t heard of, and naturally we’re very happy to be one of their newer brands.
Anyhow, recently ORESTA was on CTV talking about summer-time skin woes with Ottawa host Leann Cusack.

Check out segment #1, where owner Oresta Korbutiak talks about sunscreen (I bet you’ve never heard this advice before) and then the lovely Kelly talks about her experience using Stark (@ around 3:11). *High fives!*

M: As the green beauty/wellness community has changed SO much over the past 5-8 years,I tune out so much of the fear-mongering noise over ingredient/lifestyle perfectionism. I initially fell in love with green beauty because the products were so special, beautiful and unique, not because they upheld some false dichotomized notion of "purity." I do believe we can do better than petrochemicals and endocrine disruptors in products but "clean beauty" doesn't exist in a vacuum and there are many other sociocultural issues at play.

Stark: Do you have memories of some of your earliest beauty splurges or products you couldn't live without in your teen years? Do you have any products or brands you still use from back then?
Sammie: Gosh, do I ever. I loved me some Lip Smackers (remember the Dr. Pepper one?), and I have vivid memories of my aunt selling
