A New Calia in Review!

January 21, 2018

Hello, Calia community! 

Today we are sharing a note from Calia customer Beth Richardson! We hope you are all having an amazing weekend, enjoy! 

"Hi there, I can't tell how happy I am that I found your products!! Last year I was at the peak of initial menopause which was disastrous to my hair & skin, to say the least! 

In a lengthy search for natural products to assist with controlling my hormones, I tried many shampoos and the sort (I tried a couple of homemade ones in there too) but with my fine hair, they all made it either limp and oily or dry and static. I read reviews of your product and one lady commented on how you saved her hair in menopause, so I thought 'Why not? I've tried everything else!'.

All I have to say is WOW. Oh, and THANK YOU too! Your Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner worked wonders on my hair. I purchased the Balancing Shampoo & Conditioner as well as I didn't know which would be better. I now alternate them through the week and it is such a fantastic combo. Also, my husband who always used drugstore dandruff shampoos, and complained constantly about painful pimples on his scalp, tried the Balancing Shampoo for a week and was amazed. He has been using it for about a year and no longer has dandruff OR pimples on his scalp!

On top of it all, we love that Calia is all natural, bravo! You now have us as clients for life. Oh yeah, and I almost forgot..... my sister-in-law was staying at our house and used the Balancing Shampoo and of course, fell in love. I just ordered her some."

A New Calia In Review!

January 12, 2018

Hello, Calia community! 

Today we are sharing a note from Calia customer Françoise Granda, from Montreal, Canada.

"Dear Calia Natural,

I simply wanted to say thank you for your amazing products. I have started using your products after I accidentally watched a youtube video from Holistic Habits. My hair is just so soft and shiny, and my beautiful curls are back and more beautiful than ever! I hadn't worn my hair loose for years because it looked so frizzy. I can't believe how damaged my hair was all these years! It now feels so good to use natural products in my hair. 

I use your shampoo, Intensive Conditioner, and Styling Gel now and they are all amazing.

Thank you so much for what you do!"

Hello Calia community! 

Thank you so much for your continued support this past year ~ 2017 has been a truly exciting year for all of us at Calia, and we are looking forward to bringing you more of your favourite supernatural goodness in 2018!

By far our favourite thing is to receive and read your notes, as you relay your stories about how our products have made a positive impact on your lives. This is why we do what we do, and we love nothing more than to receive your reviews and in this spirit, we invite you to email them, or post them on our Facebook page!

Today we are sharing a note from Calia customer Jeanne Conrade, who has transitioned to our organic hair care products seamlessly! 

"Recently, I've been on a path towards more holistic living in my 50th year. I've been eating clean (for the most part) for years and transitioning my health and beauty products to natural ones more recently. A few weeks ago, I started following Sarah from Holistic Habits. Upon her recommendation, I ordered Calia Natural shampoo and conditioner. I have fine colour-treated hair, so it's important for me to keep my hair hydrated but not weighed down. I decided to order both the Hydrating line and the Balancing line. I now alternate between the two and I could not be happier with the results!

My hair is now clean without feeling stripped. It is soft without feeling limp - which is very important in our hot and humid climate here in coastal Georgia. I have tried all kinds of higher end hair care products but I've never found one as effective as yours...and for such a reasonable price too!

Thank you for making such a wonderful product I can feel good about using!"


We wish you all a wonderful New Year ~ and thank you for your choosing Calia! See you in 2018!

Team Calia 

Hello Calia community! We are so excited to share with you a little more about our recent partnership with the lovely Letizia from So Natural Beauty! 

Earlier this year we partnered with So Natural Beauty, an online retailer working hard to 
provide customers with natural, effective, and elegant products.

Based in Belgium, Letizia - the founder - has a strong passion for organic beauty products and we are so happy to partner with her to make Calia more available to our wonderful customers in Europe!  This partnership means that our European customers can get access to all our Calia products in a MUCH shorter time-frame, all the while supporting another local small business. This is something we can all feel good about, and we are so happy to share this interview with you. 

We spoke to Letizia to find out everything about So Natural Beauty and her journey into beauty retail, read on to learn more about her and her amazing company:

What is So Natural Beauty?

So Natural Beauty is an online boutique that provides only non-toxic skin and hair care products, make-up and nail polishes.

The brands and products on our website are selected following these criteria:

  • Our products are certified organic or use 100% natural ingredients
  • Our products deliver excellent and visible results
  • Our products are cruelty-free
  • We personally test and approve the quality of our products

We want our customers to experience a beauty ritual that is more than just safe and clean, but a real moment for you and a real beauty ritual that will visibly improve the health of your skin and hair.

What was the inspiration for starting So Natural Beauty? 

Since I was a little girl I was told to always use natural remedies. And since becoming a mother of two kids, I’m even more careful and want the best for their health!

During a trip to the USA, I discovered simple products such as deodorant and hair care products formulated without chemicals or toxic ingredients. Everything I bought, I could also use on my kids. I was so impressed by their efficiency and quality that I wanted everyone around me to know about these brands.

This is how I decided to launch my own online beauty store. My sister and I have tested all the brands that we offer in our shop and we ensure that they are all natural products, made with plants and not tested on animals.

What is your sourcing philosophy?

The products don’t contain any chemicals or toxic ingredients but only plants, oils and essential oils. Moreover, they must be cruelty-free and environmentally friendly. As I personally test all the brands, I can advise my customers on the best products for them to use and the best way to use them.

Living in Belgium, how do you find such an amazing range of natural products from all over the world?

The idea of So Natural Beauty is to share, listen and exchange the beauty experiences with bloggers, customers, or friends from all around the world.

Some discussions inspire us to try and test some new products because our curiosity is what makes the beauty world so interesting. 

When we completely fall in love with the brand philosophy and the products we start to see if we can include the brand on our website.

What are your favourite Calia items?

I’m tempted to say ALL the products, but I will just say the products that I use every week.

The Calia Hydrating Shampoo and Calia Hydrating Conditioner are just perfect for my daughter and I. They deeply nourish and protect our hair and also make it easy to untangle. It’s incredible how soft and shining our hair is after switching to Calia.

The Calia Rose Rejuvenating Face Cream that deeply hydrates and nourishes my skin. Its perfume is so delicious and its texture, so light and fast absorbing. This product always impressed me!

Finally, the Essential Oils that allow us to create personal aromatic treatments according to the season and the skin and hair needs.

How did you discover Calia Natural?

As I mentioned above, the Green Beauty community is a world where the people from all around the world share their experiences. I came across the videos of Sarah Nagel of Holistic Habits and discovered Calia here.

Sarah is such an inspiration to me not only for her beauty ritual, and thanks to her excellent advice I’ve tried the Calia range. Of course, once I started taking care of my skin and hair with Calia, it was impossible for me not to have this brand in my shop!!

Do you have a hair care routine you swear by?

With the Calia haircare products, my routine is quite simple but so efficient: I wash my hair 4 to 5 days a week. I use the Hydrating Shampoo and every time, a conditioner (impossible to skip the conditioner!). Once a week I use the Intensive Conditioner to deeply hydrate my hair. A good conditioner allows me to keep my hair soft and tangle-free. 

Any DIY recipes that you feel everyone should know about? 

When my hair needs extra shine and hydration I apply coconut oil to my roots and ends. I let it sink into my hair as long as possible and I follow-up with shampoo and conditioner as usual. 

I noticed a great improvement in the quality of my hair since doing this because it keeps it in good shape for a long time! This ritual is well known, but unfortunately, people do not always do it even though it’s something quite simple to do. 

What is the most important reason you choose 100% natural and organic products?  

There are actually two main reasons.

The first one is that it’s now scientifically proven that an accumulation of toxins in our body over the years, can cause diseases. Prevention is therefore very important. That’s why I avoid using beauty products containing chemicals on my skin.

And the second reason is that since I started using natural products, my skin and my hair have visibly improved! Now I try to spread the word and let people try these products and experience this difference for themselves.

Where is So Natural Beauty based, and where do you ship to?

So Natural Beauty is located in Belgium, the heart and capital of Europe. 

Let us know if you enjoyed this Q&A and would like to see more!

New Calia in Review!

October 28, 2017



Hello Calia community! 

We've got a new review to share with you, our amazing customers! Read on to learn just how our products are making a difference in our customer's lives. This is why we do what we do! 

This is one of our favourite reviews ever ~ thanks to Inga for taking the time to send us such a detailed review. We really appreciate your feedback and are happy our products have made such a difference for you!

Want to be featured in our newsletter? We invite you to email your review, or post one to our Facebook page! Read on for Inga’s story: 

“Hello People at Calia :) I don't usually leave reviews but I want to for this. The Hydrating Shampoo and Hydrating Conditioner is by far the best shampoo I have used. Period. I bet you're tired of reading detailed testimonials, but I'd like to give you a good picture of what a journey it's been to finding your shampoo and why it's so important to me.

Around 2010 I started losing a lot of hair (diffuse shedding, most likely due to repeated scalp sunburns). My hair is naturally fine, medium thickness, wavy 2A/2B, naturally platinum and I'm super pale (hence scalp sensitivity to sun). I actually noticed the hair loss way later in 2015 when I suddenly stopped shedding so much. When comparing my hair to pre-2010 photos, I was left with around 50% loss in volume. Since then I've taken great pains to grow my hair back and regain my thickness, and I'm finally starting to see results, but my search for the right shampoo continued until I found yours. 

I have experimented with many shampoos for hair loss, thinness, regrowth, etc. across the whole price spectrum. A lot of them work just fine and I'll be rotating in others every once in a while, but yours is the staple in my hair diet. After watching some YouTube videos and seeing reviews and the ingredients for your Hydrating Shampoo/Conditioner, I'm very glad that I gave Calia a shot.  

The Hydrating Shampoo/Conditioner leaves my hair clean, silky, voluminous, shiny, and healthy! I never got all of these results in one from another shampoo. As I regrow what I've lost, this shampoo is doing an excellent job of keeping my hair and scalp clean and hydrated with no split ends. I shed about half the amount when washing my hair with this shampoo/conditioner than with anything else I've tried (why is this? Horsetail? Alfalfa? Magic? I don’t know!).

My hair strands are stronger now, taking more force to break. I workout daily and my hair stays clean-looking about twice the length of time as with any other shampoo I've tried. I wash my hair about once every three days just for the sweat factor. I'd probably wait a couple more days if I didn't get so sweaty!

Before I found your shampoo, I used to buy a lot of the ingredients you use separately and mix them together to make homemade shampoos or oils, but they didn't clean my hair nearly as well as this Hydrating Shampoo/Conditioner combo!

I really appreciate this product and am so satisfied to finally have found something that works so well for my hair type! 

Thank you!

Inga”

Get to know Calia Five Thieves Oil Blend!

Calia Five Thieves Oil is a powerful essential oil blend consisting of Clove Oil, Lemon Oil, Cinnamon Oil, Eucalyptus Oil, and Rosemary Oil.

Inspired by the story of four 15th century thieves who formulated a special aromatic blend to protect them from the plague, this versatile blend of oils can be used for cleaning and as an effective immune booster.

Benefits

The benefits of Calia Five Thieves Oil are incredibly wide-ranging and are particularly valuable for people suffering from a weak immune system, gastrointestinal problems, inflammatory conditions, skin irritation, poor respiratory health, hypertension, and osteoporosis, among others.

Our Calia Five Thieves Oil can be diluted with any desired Calia Carrier Oil and used for pain relief when rubbed into sore joints or muscles. When used in a diffuser, Calia Five Thieves Oil will help reduce airborne bacteria and will also assist in relieving lung congestion should you be affected.

The uses for this amazing blend are so widespread that it should be part of everyone’s healthy lifestyle!

How to Use It

Cleaning

Calia Five Thieves Oil is great for cleaning! Either add it to your existing natural household cleaner or even just mix it with water in a spray bottle.

It helps to clean everything from laundry to countertops, and just about everything in-between!

Immune Support and Healing

All of the ingredients in our Calia Five Thieves Oil have an impact on the immune system, either with antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic or antioxidant qualities.

The unique blend of ingredients works to fight infection and provide a great defence for the body. It can be applied to wounds or skin eruptions, and when inhaled with a diffuser it provides effective immune support.

Reduce Fever/Pain Relief

Dilute with a Calia carrier oil and massage into your skin for pain relief. Two very effective areas to massage are the feet and up along the spine. You can also apply it to the chest over the lungs.

With such a wide-range of essential oils, the crossover and complimentary benefits are seemingly endless. Clove Oil is a well-known anti-inflammatory and Lemon Oil can effectively reduce fevers, and that's just the start! 

These are just a few of the many benefits of this wonderful blend! Shop the link HERE or get in touch to find out how Calia Five Thieves Oil can benefit you!

Yours Naturally, 

Randy & the Calia Crew
