10 Ways You Can Help the Earth This Earth Day

10 Ways You Can Help the Earth This Earth Day

When it comes to sustainability at Ao Organics Hawaii and even in my own personal life, we are not perfect, but progress is better than perfection–that's why we say "earth-friendly," not "earth-perfect."

What is sustainability?

It is “avoidance of the depletion of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance,” but I like to say it’s anything that helps people or the planet during the process. Even in our small acts of recycling, repurposing, or reusing things, you make a difference!

Our sunscreens come in eco-friendly and compostable push up sticks. You can also now shop for refills with aluminum caps, and save your plastic tops to minimize plastic waste.

We even offer refills to our customers who save their bottles and want to bring them in for refills in our store.

 

In an effort to be more sustainable at Ao Organics Hawaii, we offer several different types of reusable or recyclable packaging. We started a refill program back in 2018, and at all of our events we would remind our customers to save their tanning oil bottles to be refilled.

We are now in a few different refill shops as well, you can find Ao Organics in Bulk Bars on Oahu and coming soon to the Big Island too. When we pack our orders, we source recycled materials and reuse all boxes and packaging that comes in. Though these are small steps toward sustainability, we hope together we can make a large impact and difference.


What is Earth Day?

Earth Day takes place every April 22. It’s a day to dedicate some extra time, thought, and care to how we treat our ʻāina. Many neighborhoods and workplaces even hold events to educate and inspire communities to take steps towards a healthier planet.

It’s not fun to think about, but it’s important to remember that we need our planet more than it needs us. Earth Day is an important reminder of how fragile our world is and how important it is to take care of it. While every day is a great day to take care of the Earth, April 22 is a way to remind ourselves and others of how simple it can be to live in a planet-friendly way.


10 Ways You Can Help Mother Earth on Earth Day!

1. Plant something

Make the world greener by planting something. Trees help clear the air, produce oxygen and will even improve your property value. Consider starting a vegetable garden to help reduce reliance on pesticide-heavy conventionally farmed foods. If you don't have a garden, consider composting your food waste–that's also a start!

2. Explore responsible skincare

Conventionally manufactured skincare products contain ingredients that are both bad for you and the environment. Making the switch to natural and clean beauty products keeps harmful ingredients out of the water, all while giving you healthier skin!

3. Support businesses that use eco-friendly packaging

Packaging waste can really build up, especially irresponsible packaging waste. Use this Earth Day as an opportunity to research and support businesses that use eco-friendly packaging methods. Take it a step further by learning more about how to recycle packaging waste.

4. Rethink your shower

Conventional shampoos and conditioners come in plastic bottles that many communities can't recycle (check the resin codes on your plastic waste and see if they're accepted in your city's recycling system). Plus, they contain ingredients that may cause asthma or other human health problems and wreak havoc on water systems when they wash down the drain. Try our zero-waste shampoo and conditioner bars!

5. Recycle your electronics

You can recycle your old, unused or broken computers, tablets, phones and other electronics can often by taking them to electronic stores, manufacturers, or even your local government! By doing so protects, you help to protect our natural resources while also reducing pollution.

6. Turn off the tap

Whether you're brushing your teeth, washing dishes, or taking a shower, turn off the water when it's not needed.

7. Use reusable bags at the store

Use a backpack or bag from home, or buy reusable bags that you can keep in your car and use them again and again.

8. Buy local

Buying local produce and other items reduces shipping distances from food sourced overseas, and also supports your local business owners and communities.

9. Follow the three "R"'s

Look for ways you can 1) reduce, 2) reuse and 3) recycle throughout your home. You’ll save natural resources, energy and money, plus reduce the waste sent to landfills.

10. Educate

When you further your own education, you can help others understand the importance and value of our natural resources!


Some Tips for Sharing Sustainability

Here are a few ways you can positively share your sustainable lifestyle—because it's better to make small changes than none at all!

  1. Lead by example. Rather than simply suggesting alternatives to friends, bring your own reusable straws, mugs or cutlery to coffee dates or lunch with friends.

2. Share what you’ve learned with positivity and kindness.If you are already making moves to live a more sustainable life, realize that others might not even be on the game board or know where to start. Start with education.

3. Be more conscious about everyday decisions. For instance, next time you buy lip balm, consider if the ingredients organic or if it has eco-friendly packaging.

4. Try thrift shopping! Sustainability isn’t a one-size-fits-all romper. Thrifting is also a great way to save money and support slow fashion.

5. Read resources like The Good Trade for more tips and tricks on way to incorporate sustainability in your everyday life and join a community striving to make the world a little better and brighter.

5 Beach Bag Essentials You Need

5 Beach Bag Essentials You Need

As some of you may already know, I started Ao Organics after becoming a new mother. Being an ocean-loving family, we spend most of our family days at the beach, playing under the sun all day long! Because of this, sunscreen has always been a staple in our beach bag.

When I started to learn how toxic the sunscreens we were using were, with their harmful ingredients and chemicals, we completely stopped using them. However, at the time, it was challenging to find a brand we could trust that was 100% organic in stores. That's when I stepped into my kitchen and started making my own.

Four years later, and we've expanded our line of products since our days of just churning out reef-safe sunscreens. Here are mine and Shannele's four must-have items in our beach bag!

1. Reef-Safe Sunscreen

Our sunscreen features Hawaiian beeswax, which gives your skin water-resistant protection–perfect for all adventures under the sun! And most importantly, protects your skin from harsh UVA & UVB rays.

When my ‘ohana (family) is in the ocean and at the beach I have to pack our Liquid Reef-Safe Sunscreen because it is the easiest to spread, very much like a lotion!


2. Sunscreen Sticks

These are just like our Liquid Reef-Safe Sunscreen, but in a compact form and fun-sized–so our Sunscreen Sticks are perfect for the keiki!

Our sticks are my favorite for the kids. They can easily put it on themselves, and because of the thicker consistency from the Hawaiian beeswax, it stays on really well.


3. Golden Hour Tanning Oil

For getting your glow on, we offer five different reef-safe tanning oils, but my all-time favorite has to be the Golden Hour Tanning Oil. I love the tropical mango coconut fragrance and shimmers it leaves on my skin!


4. After Sun Spray

Our After Sun Spray is perfect after a long day under the hot Hawaiian sun. It features a blend of cucumber, lavender, Hawaiian aloe vera and spearmint–all these natural ingredients work together to soothe, calm and moisturize your skin.

Why You Need to Use a Serum and Moisturizer

Why You Need to Use a Serum and Moisturizer

Serum vs. Moisturizer 

Serum

  • Thinner and lighter than moisturizers, and are always applied before your moisturizer.
  • Contain highly active ingredients that penetrate deep into your skin.
  • Designed to treat skin concerns like acne, wrinkles, antioxidant, and discoloration.
  • They are comprised of tiny molecules that are able to absorb deep into the layers of the skin.

Moisturizer

  • Thicker and creamier than serums.
  • Create a barrier that locks in moisture and nutrients.
  • The molecules in moisturizers are larger than serums, so they are meant to add moisture to the top layer of the skin.

It is beneficial to use both a serum and moisturizer. Use your serum before your moisturizer. Adding this combo to your skincare routine will give your skin a double dose of hydrating and healing ingredients!

Skin Myth

It’s okay to skip moisturizer, and just use serum alone.

Serums are truly state-of-the-art skin care products because they are potent formulations that deliver beneficial high-performance ingredients such as antioxidants, humectants or other cell-communicating components to the skin.

As beneficial as serums are, dont be tempted to skip your moisturizer, especially if the consistency of the serum you’re using resembles a lotion or an oil-based serum. Moisturizing is a crucial part of skin care! Keep in mind that your skin protects the entire body. Moisturizers protect our skin from the elements, all while hydrating and softening it. Also, while some serums contain hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, you still need to add layer a moisturizer over the serum to seal it into the skin!

‘Iliwai Hydration Serum Drops Soon!

Get ready for our NEW ‘Iliwai Hydration Serum, which drops this Friday, Mar. 12 at 6 a.m. HST.

PRO SKIN TIP:

  1. Cleanse
  2. Tone
  3. Apply our new ‘ILIWAI HYDRATION SERUM
  4. Lastly, lock it in with a moisturizer!

Be sure to sign up for our e-newsletter to be in the know, and get an alert when this serum hits our site!

Six Ways to Take Extra Care of Your Skin

Six Ways to Take Extra Care of Your Skin

March is Women's History Month! This is a month where we celebrate the women before us who paved the way to allow us boss babes to follow our dreams, and reflect on how we can realize these dreams. In order to do so, the first step is taking care of yourself, and we can help!

Skincare is more than taking care of what’s on the outside, it also requires us to care for our bodies from within too. At Ao Organics Hawai‘i, we want to be more than just the products you are using, we want to be a part of your skin health journey in all aspects. Once we care for ourselves starting from the inside out, we’ll feel ready to make history ourselves!

Here are six ways to take extra care of your skin this month:

1. Make time for stress relief

Did you know that feeling stressed triggers production of extra cortisol in the body? This hormone, which regulates our fight or flight response, is also responsible for an inability of the skin to retain moisture while also promoting an overproduction of oil in response. So you end up with dry, dull skin, and an overabundance of oil production to deal with.

AO Tip: Practice some of these stress-relief activities: take a bubble bath, light a candle and do deep breathing for 10-15 minutes, or find an activity that helps you to de-stress

2. Good fats for glowing skin

We’re not scared of fats anymore! Good fats like avocado, coconut oil, olive oil and omega 3s, are essential when it comes to keeping skin moisturized and healthy. Bonus: these fats support healthy cellular growth and function, soothe inflammation in the body, speed healing of damaged skin, and supply you with energy–now go make history babe!

3. Water temperature matters

We all know by now we should be washing our face and removing our makeup. That’s right girl–no sleeping in your makeup, ever. But did you also know the temperature of the water makes a difference when it comes to the health of your skin? Washing your face with water that is too hot can strip the sebum from your skin and zap the moisture and hydration right along with it.

AO Tip: Wash your face with lukewarm water as it will give the oil on your skin the chance to warm up for a good cleanse instead of completely washing it away. Then massage our ‘Ōlena + Honey Cleanser into your skin for a full 60 seconds to really get the most of your daily wash.

4. Wash your makeup brushes regularly

Not only does makeup residue build up on your brushes, but so does bacteria, oil, dirt, dust and sweat. By not regularly cleaning all of that grime off, you eventually will bet clogged pores, inflammation, and unwanted breakouts.

AO Tip: Make it a weekly routine to give your makeup brushes a good wash! Did you know you can even wash your makeup brushes with our Get Naked Makeup Remover?!

5. Get your body moving and exercise

Did you know that daily movement offers skin benefits as well and mental and physical ones? Exercise promotes healthy blood circulation, which in turn carries oxygen and other essential nutrients to all of your cells, including your face! That healthy dose of nutrients helps to give your face an instant glow and overall radiance. Don’t forget your post-workout skincare, either.

AO Tip: Make sure to give your face a good cleanse as softening your sweat glands can push out some of what clogs the pores and you’ll definitely want to wash off that dirt and grime afterwards!

6. Hydrate

Hydration is of the utmost importance when you’re caring for your skin, especially when it comes to preventing wrinkles and skin elasticity. If you find yourself struggling to drink enough water, you can eat your water, too! Think fruits and veggies with a high-water content like watermelon, strawberry, cucumber and cantaloupe...and don’t forget the topical application either!

AO Tip: Carry any of our facial toners with you for a refreshing dose of hydration on the go. You’ll help to maintain your skin’s balance and can help reduce inflammation and puffiness.

Shop these products to get glowing skin and feel good!

Facial Hydrators

Take time this month not only to celebrate women who've made history, but also the ones making history right now, including you babe! When you make the time to invest in yourself, care for your skin, eat healthy and live healthier, you get to get back to what you were meant to do...Make history!

Eight Anti-Aging Skincare Tips

Eight Anti-Aging Skincare Tips

One thing that we cannot change is the natural aging process.  With time, we all get visible lines on our face. It is natural for our face to lose some of its youthful fullness. We notice our skin becoming thinner and drier. Our genes largely control when these changes occur. The medical term for this type of aging is “intrinsic aging.”

We can influence another type of aging that affects our skin. Our environment and lifestyle choices can cause our skin to age prematurely. The medical term for this type of aging is “extrinsic aging.” By taking some preventive actions, we can slow the effects that this type of aging has on our skin.


Tips to help slow the effects of aging

1. Protect your skin from the sun every day.

Whether spending a day at the beach or running errands, sun protection is essential. You can protect your skin by seeking shade, covering up with sun-protective clothing — such as a lightweight and long-sleeved shirt, pants, a pāpale (wide brimmed hat), and sunglasses with UV protection — and using sunscreen that is broad-spectrum, SPF 30 (or higher), and water-resistant. You should apply sunscreen every day to all skin that is not covered by clothing.

2. If you smoke, stop.

Smoking greatly speeds up how quickly skin ages. It causes wrinkles and a dull, sallow complexion.

3. Avoid repetitive facial expressions.

This is a tough one even for me, because I am VERY expressive with my face. How many other ladies can relate?! When you make a facial expression, you contract the underlying muscles. If you repeatedly contract the same muscles for many years, these lines become permanent. Wearing sunglasses can help reduce lines caused by squinting.

4. Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet.

Findings from a few studies suggest that eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables may help prevent damage that leads to premature skin aging. Findings from research studies also suggest that a diet containing lots of sugar or other refined carbohydrates can accelerate aging.

5. Drink less alcohol.

Alcohol is rough on the skin. It dehydrates the skin, and in time, damages the skin. This can make us look older.

6. Exercise most days of the week.

Findings from a few studies suggest that moderate exercise can improve circulation and boost the immune system. This, in turn, may give the skin a more youthful appearance.

7. Wash your face twice a day and after sweating heavily.

Perspiration, especially when wearing a hat or helmet, irritates the skin, so you want to wash your skin as soon as possible after sweating. The perfect gentle cleanser is our ‘Ōlena + Honey Foaming Cleanser.

8. Apply a facial moisturizer every day.

Moisturizer traps water in our skin, giving it a more youthful appearance. I literally couldn’t recommend this more. Our ‘Ili Hydration Moisturizer is the perfect daily moisturizer for anyone who is looking for a lightweight, non-clogging facial moisturizer that can be used twice a day.

It's never too late to start. No matter what, it will never be too late for your skin to benefit from you caring for it.

5 Ways to Practice Self Love This Valentine's Day

5 Ways to Practice Self Love This Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day comes with way too much pressure–whether it be what your date should look like, what gift you receive, and whether you're single or in a relationship.

In preparation of Valentine’s Day this year, consider putting your energy into the relationship that you have with yourself!  Here are 5 ways to practice self love this Valentine's Day. Try one or all of these, and see which one resonates with you.

1. Create a Positive Mantra

We all have an ongoing internal script that we sometimes aren’t even aware of. Become mindful of your inner voice and guide it to choose loving messages whenever the negativity starts to creep in.  Here are some empowering mantras: “I love and accept myself always” or “Self love is my birthright,” or “I am valuable.”

2. Spoil Yourself

Always remember to indulge in things that create passion and excitement in your life. These are the things that fuel you to consistently function at your best and flood you with good energy. Whether it is a great book or a walk in nature, be sure to set this valuable time aside for yourself.

3. Eat Well

Being selective about what food you choose to nourish your body with, is one of the most important forms of self love. Know how your food choices affect you and select the ones that create the highest form of energy, comfort and delight in your body.

4. Forgive Yourself

Excuse yourself for all the times that you may have lost a significant piece of yourself to find another. Deeply forgiving past mistakes and misjudgments in your past relationships will help you cultivate an open heart that is ready for new experiences.

5. Write Yourself a Love Note

Take some time to write down all of the things that you admire about yourself. Release the urge to point out your flaws. Your self-doubt muscle may be stronger than your self-love muscle at the moment, but focusing on your strengths and your gifts will fuel your mission to create more appreciation and gratitude for yourself.

Be sure to get a thoughtful gift for your ku‘uipo (sweetheart) for Valentine's or best girlfriends for Galentine's Day!  Shop our favorites below.

How to Use Your Eco-Friendly, Zero-Waste Hair Care

How to Use Your Eco-Friendly, Zero-Waste Hair Care

We're so excited for you all our #AOGlow goddesses to try our newest shampoo and conditioner bars in Pikake Rain (with a hint of lilikoi)!  If you have been loving our Guava-licious shampoo and conditioner bars, and are a fan of our Pikake Rain lotion, then you will absolutely love our newest product.

Here's why we love our eco-friendly hair care:

  • Bars are eco-friendly and are packaged in 100% plastic-free wrap.
  • Shampoo and conditioners bars are packed with essential oils along with other fresh and natural ingredients. The result? A cleaner rinse, less build-up, and happier, shinier, healthier hair.
  • One bar can provide approximately 80+ washes–that’s the equivalent of two to three plastic bottles of liquid shampoo!
  • A single plastic bottle can take 450+ years to decompose. Our bars drastically reduce plastic bottle waste.  This waste quickly adds up to saving millions of plastic bottles from landfills!

Not sure how to use your eco-friendly, zero-waste bars? We're here to help. Watch my TikTok below where I share a hack on how to use yours.  All you need is a mesh bag (you can use the one that comes with our Reusable Bamboo Cotton Rounds!). 

 Other Tips:

  1. Make sure to keep bars dry after use.
  2. Place them on a soap bar holder or outside of the shower.
  3. Hold them in a mesh bag to prevent them from breaking apart.

Reef-Safe Sunscreens Good for You and the Environment

Reef-Safe Sunscreens Good for You and the Environment

On January 1, 2021 Hawai‘i became the first state in the country to ban the sale and distribution of sunscreens formulated with oxybenzone and octinoxate–two of the most detrimental chemicals that harm our reefs and even our bodies! 

Although this law went into effect this past month, you may still have chemical sunscreens lying around the house or stashed in your beach bag.  We want to make it easy for you to safely ditch those chemical sunscreens and make the switch to our reef-safe mineral-based sunscreens with our new Trade, Don’t Trash program!  If your sunscreen lists oxybenzone, avobenzone, homosalate, octinoxate, octisalate, octocrylene, and/or nanoparticles as active ingredients, you should in fact toss them. Even if you don’t swim in the ocean, these ingredients may wash off in the shower or pass through the sewage systems (via our urine), and could eventually end up in the sea!

Disclaimer: Many commercial sunscreens claim to be “reef-friendly” or “reef-safe” but are NOT! Be sure to always review the active ingredients to be sure!

Here's how we can help! 

Shop our organic, reef-safe and eco-friendly sunscreens!
