Biolage Introduces “Green” Campaign to Benefit Refuge
Sanibel Island, Florida, USA - Biolage, the well-known professional hair care products company has teamed up with local
Sanibel Island salons and conservation organizations to benefit the “Ding” Darling Wildlife Society to sponsor a contest that raises
awareness of environmental issues and raise money to help the society with their goals.
The contest is meant to last for approximately two months and ends on August 13th. While the contest
lasts, four local salons are competing to collect Biolage’s recyclable hair care bottle. The contest is aptly named the Biolage Bottle
Back program and the winner will be accorded the title of Biolage Select GRE.E.E.N Salon of the Year.
The spelling of “GRE.E.E.N” in this instance has significance: The three E’s represent the goals of the
contest. “Encourage others; embrace their role, and empower the community in daily recycling habits and environmental responsibility”.
The competition is being organized by Jack Karkis, a distributor sales consultant with Ace Beauty Company. It is his
job to collect, count and recycle all of the hair care containers returned to the salons. “It’s been fantastic,” Karkis said of the
competition between the salons. “It’s a nice, friendly competition that has developed between these salons, and each week I go in there
they ask me how the other guy is doing.”
Current estimates on the results are that the Wildlife Society will receive about $7000 (U.S. dollars)
from the campaign, which will go toward funding the society’s projects and conservation efforts. In addition, the salons participating
in the contest have also volunteered to assist in the removal of exotic plant species on the refuge’s Shell Mound Trail.
Biolage is a part of MATRIX, a professional hair care and hair color company, in the United States that
is part of L’Oreal’s USA’s Professional Products Division. The participating salons have been the company’s partners since 1987. The
Conservation Fund on Sanibel works to create partnerships across the U.S. that will help them raise awareness to conserve the country’s
natural resources such as land and water.

discoloration eczema and contact dermatitis.
A research report by Professor Allen of Harvard Medical School said, “Counter skin whitening creams
contain mercury based formulas. These are harmful and cause kidney damage. They may also lead to psychiatric disorders.” It said that
Hydro-quinine has been used in skin lightening creams for years. But now it has been banned in Japan and Europe. The Dermatological
Therapy journal states that Hydro-quinine has become controversial because of being toxic.
Dr. Tahir Kamal, dermatologist, has said that most cheap fairness creams contain bleaching agents.
“About 30 to 40 percent of my patients want to have a fairer complexion. It is now possible through skin peeling, microdermabrasion
and laser skin rejuvenation, but even these treatments take a minimum of three months.” He further explained that many people are
looking for more rapid results, and that the problem is only getting worse.
According to Kamal, whenever a product has been banned in other countries, pharmaceutical companies in
Pakistan have imported its raw material and made the product in country. Often these products carry no ingredient information or
expiration dates on the products.
