Is Your Favorite Brand Ethical? Demee Koch Weighs In

October 21, 2021

We all love animals and nature, traveling and learning about new cultures. There are so many beautiful things to try and to experience in this world. However, fast and mindless consumerism can put all the things we love at risk.

Especially in fashion and in beauty we tend to overconsume.
Do we really know what we are buying into and the consequences of our choices? Whilst organic cosmetics and eco fashion are on the rise, lots of brands are only lip-synching in making us believe they are harmless for nature and for the people manufacturing our products.
Why our favorite brands should be aligned with our personal values

Your shampoo brand now may added a sticker that says “vegan“. But hey, more often than not it means that it does not contain any ingredients derived from animals simply because it is made of cheaply available chemicals only.

Your sweater may say “organic cotton“ but it might still be made in Bangladesh under horrendous conditions for the workers.
It is now important to be aware that lots of brands try to jump on the “eco trend“ and start lip-synching.

This is why we ourselves need to make conscious choices by researching products, ingredients, and manufacturing processes on the internet. No one, of course, does not ever want to harm anyone – so why would we go for a brand that has harmful business practices?

Are you aware that unethical brands cannot survive without you? 

We can make an impact every single day. We hold the power on how to direct that impact – is it for the good or for the bad?

For example, we can influence the ban of dangerous chemicals, unethical business practices and nonsense one-way plastic usage. How? Through our purchasing power. The money we spend is the lifeblood of the company. So wherever we direct this lifeblood will survive.
If we would truly practise our purchasing power through conscious actions, we will be able to strenghten the brands that share our values.

We are living in the age of (almost) unlimited access to information through the internet. It’s time to make use of that wisely. Are the brands really true to their word? Do they care about environmental protection and the local communities in which they produce? Personally, I would only resonate with brands that are true to my values. And I believe we all need brands that are sincere with their social impact.

Ask yourself: How do you make your purchase decisions? What keywords are looking into? And now, evaluate is it a hype or a seasonal trend? From there, you can make a conscious decision. Let’s truly understand our purchasing power and re-think the brands we buy into by practicing conscious actions.

 
From there, you can indeed look good, feel good and do good.

THE ART OF SCULPT(ery)

October 19, 2021

As a sucker for all things wellness and beauty it would be to no surprise that I would fall into the influence of body sculpting. Spending so much time on Instagram I began to see an increase in influencers speaking about a lymphatic drainage massage, and one in particular: @sculptery

I was already familiar with the benefits of a lymphatic draining, and how it applied to those post op. Being a gentle massage that encourages movement of lymph fluids around the body it helped the system remove toxins from the bodily tissues: aka, fix bloat, boost immunity and aid in weight loss. Additional benefits from the massage were improvement in the skin appearance – perhaps a major reason why people choose this as part of a facial.

Therefore, what was so special about Sculptery and how it applies to ‘sculpting the body’? At first, I figured it was a fad, just having multiple influencers do the usual promo shout to create buzz. But as any junkie needing their fix, you bet I made a quick appointment.

Entering the premise, I was greeted by Sarah the owner and specialist that would be conducting my session. She was perhaps one of the friendliest people I had ever come across. As we began to discuss the process she started with the usual, “are you familiar with wood and ice massages?” I smiled and said I did, feeling confident on what I knew.

That’s when I began to be blown away. She knew her stuff. Having over 10+ years in the business, and being a success story herself, she dived into explaining the treatment.

Our SCULPTERYWood Treatment is an exotic unique technique in which custom wood, metal & jade instruments are developed to contour & shape the body & face. Wood Therapy has been practiced for centuries throughout the world in Oriental & Latin Countries where Therapists used wood for therapeutic purposes.

Our technique is one of a kind. After researching the techniques of maderaterapia, we created SCULPTERYWood where each instrument has a specific use to treat an area of the face or body. SCULPTERYWood increases blood circulation, has a sculpting & toning effect on the skin, while increasing the production of collagen & elastin’s. Our unmitigated treatments will aid in cellulite reduction, enhance a lifted buttock, create a contoured waistline, and will aid in smoothing out unwanted bulges. Best part of these treatments is that they are all natural, non-invasive, with no downtime, and you are sure to see results! “

Handing me a pair of disposable skivvies and stepping out of the room, it was time to get started. She began with specific movements, explaining the reasoning behind each. First on my back, then to my side. I found it odd having a mirror right in front of me, but as she continued her process the results were visible and undeniable. I was in in complete shock at the immediate results, and she laughed stating, “I love hearing when they see it.” I kept the rotation as she did the other side and my stomach.

This wasn’t so bad. Suddenly, she reached into a freezer noting, “ok, this is about to be a love hate relationship.” Confused at first, I looked over to see what she meant, and realized she was holding a product named “snatchsicle” which immediately told me, ‘It’s about to get real cold in here.’ Trying to be brave I was taking the ice on my body like a champ, but eventually began to feel the tingles. Luckily, this was towards the end.

45 minutes later, I was standing in front of the mirror visibly seeing the difference. It was so great, that I immediately asked how soon I would be able to come back. She noted this would be possible every other day but noting that it’s not necessary for everyone as all bodies react and show results differently. As you guessed, I made the follow up and 3 days later got the same procedure done. I felt great after but wasn’t sure on how visible results would be to others, until my girlfriend saw me and said, “damn, you’ve lost a lot of weight!” – as if that was not enough, my once tight pants were loose, my skin was tighter, and I just felt good.

Moral of the story? If you are looking for a jumpstart for any weight loss goals, do not hesitate, and make your appointment TODAY! They are local in Beverly Hills, and you will be thanking us later.

Wondering on the downside of the procedure? Well, you mustpee a lot – and the non-invasive procedure will run you up $250+ per session. But hey, isn’t it time you invested in yourself?

Sarah’s father is a renowned, retired plastic surgeon who helped her further understand the human body and how the skin reacts, fat cells, cellulite, etc. Sarah took this knowledge, alongside her bachelors in international business at San Francisco State University and created what we now know as the Sculptery technique.
