Silicone Use in Skin Care Products

Saturday, December 29, 2012

Every day many of us use a number of products on our skin, ranging from deodorant to powder, cleanser to moisturizer - the list goes on. We've been brought up in an era of mass production of cosmetics by industry giants. We trust that research has been done to provide products which are not harmful to us. For those of us who suspect that this is not always reality we may take the time to review the odd ingredient list, but soon find that none of the ingredients are familiar (or pronounceable). While working with an herbalist on the development of our own skin care line at Ste. Anne's Spa, we chose our ingredient list carefully. Over the coming months, through blog posts, we will be sharing some of the information we have learned. We hope you find this useful in making informed purchasing decisions. Read more

After nearly two incredible years, we have made the difficult decision this December to close the doors of our sister property in Port Hope, The Dorset Manor Spa. This was not an easy decision for Ste. Anne’s Spa owner, Jim Corcoran, as the property was very well received by guests and was favoured with rave reviews on Trip Advisor.  
“With the popularity our new Ste. Anne’s Skin Care line and the opening of our new Gluten-Free Bakery, we have made the decision to refocus all of our efforts here at our Grafton property to ensure that we can meet the demand of these two new ventures” says Jim. “We have numerous renovation and expansion plans that we want to realize here at the Grafton property, and with the future needs of The Dorset Manor Spa property in mind, we feel that now is the time to redirect our efforts.” Read more
