Enjoi Rae’s Organic Products!

As Rae’s Café expands, sharing our ganoderma-enhanced coffees, teas and other beverages and products with people all across the continent, one of the things that we are proudest of is our organic items. Organo Gold’s commitment to organic farming wherever possible means that several of our best-selling products are certified organic by Ecocert, the global certification body for sustainable development. These organic products — which include Organo Gold Organic Green TeaOrganic Red TeaPremium King of CoffeeGanoderma Lucidum Spore Powder, and Organic Ganoderma Lucidum Capsules — are some of Rae’s finest, and represent the pinnacle of what Organo Gold is all about — providing customers with the products they need for an active lifestyle.

Europeans in particular seem to truly appreciate Organo Gold’s commitment to quality — and organic farming wherever possible — because Europe has always been on the cutting-edge of organic farming. Here’s some info on just how progressive Europe is on the organic front:

  • Twenty-four percent of the world’s organic land is in Europe.
  • The countries with the largest organic area are Italy (1’150’253 hectares), Spain (988’323 hectares) and Germany (865’336 hectares).
  • In 2007, sales of organic products were approximately 16 billion Euros.
  • The largest market for organic products in 2007 was Germany — with a turnover of 5.3 billion Euros, which increased to 5.8 billion Euros in 2008.
  • Germany is followed by the UK (2.6 billion Euros), France and Italy (both 1.9 billion Euros) in spending on organic products.
  • Support for organic farming in the European Union (as well as some of the EU’s neighboring countries) includes grants under rural development programs, legal protection and a European Action Plan as well as national action plans in individual countries.
  • One of the key instruments of the European Action Plan on organic food and farming, an information campaign, was launched during 2008, with the aim of increasing awareness of organic farming throughout the European Union.

We look forward to the organic-conscious European community embracing the Cafe’s and our pro-organic ethos, and to sharing Organo Gold’s certified organic products far and wide across the world.

Coffee Colored Tresses

Just recently, I featured information about how caffeine is a sought-after beauty ingredient; as caffeine can be used to help do everything from plump the skin to improve the condition and growth activity of the hair.

This recent article from website/blog LA Healthy Living goes into detail about how many chemicals are found in most traditional hair coloring products, and gives step-by-step instructions on how to mix up a coffee mixture that can be used to enhance dark shades of hair.

I’m listing the step-by-step process for you here — but head to LA Healthy Living for the full scoop on how brunettes can use coffee to temporarily enhance their hair.

How to Use Coffee to Dye Your Hair

  • Make a batch of really strong coffee — preferably espresso — such as Rae’s Cafe’s BrewKups in Gourmet Black Goldor Rae’s Cafe’s King of Coffee.
  • Let your coffee cool down.
  • Use two cups of a store-bought leave-in all natural conditioner, then mix it with 1 cup of cold brewed coffee.
  • Apply the mixture onto your hair and leave it in for about an hour. It will give your hair a beautiful espresso-color, without inflicting any damage to your hair.
