Article in North Carolina Magazine, Natural Triad

South of France's Director of Marketing and Product Development, Candace Kaufman, recently wrote and an informative article, "Buyer Beware, are your Beauty Products Killing you?"

South of France has taken a vow to make better-for-you products that are just as effective, if not better, than our competitors. "Buyer Beware..." calls out harmful ingredients that you will NOT find in South of France products, but that are VERY commonly found in products that many people use day in and day out. Candace reminds us all that "having great skin doesn't have to come at a price" and "having beautiful skin starts by taking care of yourself from within." As much as we all worry about break outs and wrinkles, we should worry twice as much about the types of products we use on our bodies, and their ingredients, which essentially seep into our bodies. There is a way to promote healthy skin without inducing poor health.

Be sure to check out Candace's article! It's sure to be a very interesting and informative read!

Join the Fight against Ovarian Cancer!

South of France Spa Naturals is teaming up with the great folks at Monday Night Mayhem and the Batista vs. Cancer initiative in an effort that will battle ovarian cancer head-on. Besides an initial donation of $250 to the cause, Spa Naturals will donate $1 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund for every order made in 2010 that uses the promo code STOPCANCER. When using this code, buyers will receive a 15% discount on their all-natural skincare order. Buyers can be reassured that, even in their purchase of skincare, they are receiving products made from only safe and natural ingredients that are packaged in containers that are BPA- and phthalate- free. The canisters are also recyclable and printed with Earth-friendly water-based inks. South of France is determined in its goal to support and provide better-for-you products and initiatives.

If you have any experiences with ovarian cancer or any type of cancer feel free to share them here or on Facebook (South of France Spa Naturals or South of France Natural Body Care), as we will be taking the time to acknowledge how it has affected our fans and followers all this week.

"Going Green"

People all around the world are recognizing the toll that the human race and its man-made creations are taking on our planet. Consequently, in the past few years, there has been a conscious move towards leading more sustainable lifestyles. This movement has been generally labeled, “Going Green,” and has brought about great change in every realm that has an impact on our lives- from the mini-market around the corner, right on up to the suits and ties in corporate America. Companies are realizing how serious and aware people are becoming about the quality of products that they are bringing into their homes and they are making adjustments, banks and other businesses are encouraging paperless bills, restaurants are changing their carry-out boxes and cups, the list goes on and on.

Throughout the week I have been asking you all your thoughts and suggestions regarding going green on both South of France Facebook pages. I’ve compiled your (Fans of South of France Natural Body Care and South of France Spa Naturals) responses and added a few of my own to create a list of suggestions for those of you that are trying to lead green lives.

Paperless bills
Water filters in place of plastic bottles
Use reusable grocery bags
Natural cleaning supplies
Natural beauty products
Use of as many natural and organic products as possible- CHECK THE INGREDIENTS!

Monitor the quantity of products that you use

Allow me to introduce myself...

We at Good Health understand the importance of connecting to our audience personally and making ourselves accessible to you all in as many ways as possible. That is why we have a presence in the blog world, on Facebook, Twitter and a couple more social networking sites. To take things a bit further, we have decided to unveil the "voice" behind most of our social media efforts, hence the title of this post.

My name is Archele and I'm a recent graduate of UNC Chapel Hill. I have a degree in Advertising from the School of Journalism and Mass Communication and I am the Social Media Coordinator for Good Health Natural Products. That means I am here to engage with you and to share all that I am learning about this company and its three divisions, which all produce natural products.

I am the primary host of Good Health's three Twitter sites and Facebook fan pages: Good Health Natural Foods, South of France Body Care and South of France Spa Naturals. On those pages, as well as here on the blog, you will find fun facts, discussion questions, polls and the latest deals within the company. I hope that you will join me on my personal page as well!

Fan pages do not allow you to send personal messages and so if you have a question that you would rather not share with the rest of the Internet, send me a message on my personal page and we'll take things from there. I'm excited to hear from all of you!

Stay tuned for great things from Good Health!
