I opened Rooted Salon in Baltimore to concentrate on being creative. I want to take care of my clients in a relaxing home like atmosphere and have fun. I consider my clients to be my friends and it became necessary to open Rooted so I can give them the attention they deserve.
Rooted Salon uses Organic Color Systems and sells Malin and Goetz hair and skin care products. To learn more about these products go to: www.organiccolorsystems.com and http://www.malinandgoetz.com
Malin and Goetz are eco+green.
Founders Matthew Malin and Andrew Goetz talk about how science and sustainability influence all parts of their modern apothecary brand, from the design of their minimalist packaging to the interior of their newest store.
Q: What is your green philosophy?
A: “We have always focused our efforts on natural ingredients-those tried and true ingredients that you would have found in an apothecary more than 100 years ago. Today, technology and modern science allow us to manipulate pure ingredients, like peppermint oil and lavender, so they perform better and won’t irritate sensitive skin. So essentially, we combine the best from nature and technology to create the most effective products.”
