For salon clients who are suffering from eczema, psoriasis, scalp dermatitis, or chronic scalp irritation; professional beauty services cannot only be painful, but embarrassing as well. While studies conducted by the American Contact Dermatitis Society indicate that over 20% of the population in the United States is inflicted by one of these skin diseases, the number of salons that are equipped to deal with such clients is almost non-existent. Further, studies have indicated that traditional medical approaches to treating these skin disorders put the scalp at heightened risk of compounded discomfort in the future.
Organic Salon Systems has launched its Organic Scalp Care initiative around its exclusive Soothe Plus product line. Soothe Plus is formulated with certified organic ingredients, and natural extracts to naturally reduce irritation and inflammation of the skin and scalp. It calms, cleanses and rebalances sensitive scalps naturally back to their proper pH. The Soothe Plus product range is comprised of shampoos, conditioners, and treatments. The active ingredients in the Soothe Plus products include fennel seed oil, white willow bark, sea mayweed, geranium oil, bergamot fruit oil, and comfrey; all of which are certified organic ingredients.
Scott Mitchell, Organic Salon Systems’ chief executive officer, commented, “We are taking a bold and innovative step in providing a package which includes extraordinarily effective organic salon products, comprehensive topical knowledge, and valuable marketing materials to target and treat the large and heretofore un-serviced marketplace that is comprised of those individuals that suffer from eczema, psoriasis, scalp dermatitis, and chronic scalp irritation. In doing so, we invite all salon professionals to take this step with us and enjoy what we believe will be their most loyal and valuable client base.”

About the Active Ingredients in the Soothe Plus Product Range
Fennel Seed Oil and Extract - One of the earliest known herbs used in astringents and perfume mainly to soothe inflammation to skin. Fennel also acts as a protectant from damage to hair due to peroxides. It is an anti-oxidant and anti-irritant.
White Willow Bark - Used as a successful pain relief, and in ancient Greece used also as a fever-reducing property. The American Indians used willow baths to cool fevers and indeed, the extract of willows contains salicylic acid, a close cousin of aspirin. Willow Bark has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. It also enhances skin cell turnover, removing dead skin cells and generally improving the appearance of the skin and scalp.
Sea Mayweed - Known for its anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. Soothes scalp and protects against free-radicals. Contains 11 amino acids essential to proper hair health, as well as important vitamins and minerals.
Geranium Oil - A close relative to the rose, used for many years to treat burns, inflammation and hormonal balancing. It is now being used in many “anti-aging”
Bergamot Fruit Oil - Known for its antiseptic properties, this oil derived from the rind of an orange, is used in many perfumes and brilliantine hairdressing products. Bergamot is also known to be considered a prime photo-sensitizer (sensitivity to light). Another common use is for treatment of oily skin and scalps.
Comfrey - Herbalists know this as the healing herb, and have used it for years as a rapid wound healer. The leaf and the root both contain allantoin, mucilage, tannins, starch, inulin, steroidal saponins and pyrrolizine alkaloids. Comfrey is rich in B12 and proteins. Overall it is a widely used herb in many products.
