Notes from our Bio-Estheticians: Summer Skin Care

Romatic girl, beauty in natureThis summer you probably would like your skin to be looking young and healthy ! With warm weather fast approaching, we’re prepared to offer you some advice from our bio-estheticians.


The arrival of summer! (Early June)

About 2 weeks before exposing your skin to the sun it is important to do some preparatory treatments. First, you should exfoliate your skin 2 to 3 times per week using our blend of Cleansing Cream and Seabuckthorn Facial Mask[1]. They allow you to rid your skin of dead cells and reveal healthy, glowing fresh skin. This step will ensure a uniform and healthy tan when you are out and about in the sun. For people who might have some spots, our Age-Defence Serum is the product for you. It has been clinically proven that to decrease the number of dark spots and hyperpigmentation up to 78% after 56 days of use (as part of the clinical study protocol).


The middle of the summer (July-August)

This is the period during which your skin will be most exposed to sunlight. It is therefore very important to moisturize. Start with the Toning Mist – your skin will soak up the moisture and the mist will soothe skin after long days in the sun. For a more calming effect you can even leave it in the refrigerator, it will be cool and help to calm redness. Use the Toning Mist in the morning to cleanse your face of impurities using cotton swabs (swap over the T-zone (chin-nose-front) to disinfect the area). Follow with the Age-Defense moisturizer which best suits your skin type (normal, dry, oily-sensitive).

Tip for the summer: our Age-Defence Gel for Oily-Senstitive skin is a fresh gel which is ideal as a moisturizer for normal skin during the summer season. It will leave your skin hydrated and silky thanks to the combination of sea buckthorn oils and jojoba.

One of the most important steps for any summer skin care routine is the application of sunscreen. Whether a full screen (which blocks all rays) or a solar filter (which allows some rays to pass through and enables the skin to tan) it is important to follow dosage and apply the cream every 90 to 120 minutes and when you exit the water. Another tip for beautiful skin: Our Sea Buckthorn Tea is makes a super iced tea, refreshing and rich in anti-oxidants that will help fight free radicals.


Late summer (September)

About 2 weeks after significant sun exposure, you will be able to start exfoliating. This will allow your skin to get rid of dead cells and clear the outer cell layer which is formed to protect your skin in the summer. As at the beginning of the summer, you should exfoliate your skin 2-3 times a week using our mix of Cleansing Cream and Mask. It is also advisable to make a nutritious mask[2] by mixing your moisturizer and the mask. Age-Defence Serum will hydrate and nourish your skin which will be much needed in the approach of autumn. During the coldest days, our Age-Defence Cream for dry and mature skin will be your ideal companion.

Use our advice to achieve healthy and beauitful skin this summer. You can also complement your home care with professional treatments from our certified bio-estheticians (visit « Where to Buy » on to find the nearest esthetician’s office). The bio-estheticians have access to concetrated oils that provide extraordinary results. Click here to find retail outlets and bio-estheticians in your area.


[1] To exfoliate: Mix the equivalent of a tablespoon of Facial Mask, the equivalent of half a tablespoon of Cleansing Cream, and 5-8 sprays Toning Mist. Apply the scrub by rubbing in small circles for about a minute and let it dry. When dry (3 to 5 minutes), remove it by rubbing off in small circles until face is clean and rinse your skin with cool water. For the most sensitive skin, do not rub the scrub – just rinse with fresh water.

[2] For the mask: mix the equivalent of a tablespoon of Facial Mask, the equivalent of a tablespoon of Age-Defence Cream for your skin type, and 5-8 sprays Toning Mist. Apply on the skin, face and neck, avoiding the eye area for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse with cool water until completely clean. Spray Toning Mist and apply your Age-Defence Cream.

The secret? Daily hydration –preferably twice a day – as well as a routine which includes a weekly exfoliation to remove dead skin and allow better absorption of products, and a facial cleansing in the evening to remove the collected dirt and makeup residue . Our recommended exfoliant, which is a mixture of our cream cleanser and powder mask, may be used as a scrub and provides instant radiance while cleaning the skin thoroughly.

Testing our hair care line on “Skindeep”

MontEcho_20130220_12_lowWe have just launched our new line of hair care. As we do not test on animals, we sent to products to our entire team at Mont Echo and their immediate families (parents, children, spouses, cousins, etc.) to try. Everyone was delighted with the results!

  • Men really like the shampoo and serum (occasionally), especially for dry and itchy scalps.
  • Mothers loved the shampoo and conditioner for children. While not tear-free formulas, both are gentle and work wonders on tangles.
  • All the women loved both the shampoo and conditioner, and many noted in particular the detangling and smoothing effects of the conditioner.
  • Serum use depended on the type of hair and hair health. For dry and brittle hair or hair damaged by chemicals or colours, users reported that it really nourishes and revitalizes. If you have fine hair, we find that you should leave in for less time and be sure to rinse well. Those with dry and course hair found that they did not need to rinse at all. After two or three treatments, the difference in hair smoothness and appearance was remarkable.

Testing for Safety

Skin Deep is a website that allows you to test cosmetics and their ingredients to know the potential dangers of use. I decided to do the test with our shampoo, our conditioner and our serum – and of course they all rated excellent! This is a great site to research your current and prospective care products’ ingredients. This is not a test for natural but rather a test of reported potential harmfulness. Natural ingredients can, of course, be dangerous and it is well worth considering this when shopping for products for you and your family.

The site:

This site rates on two factors: toxicity of ingredients (rated from 0 to 10, with 10 being toxic) and existing knowledge and research on each ingredient (color-coded)

Data: None

Data: Limited

Data: Fair

Data: Good

Data: Robust

All but 3 of our ingredients have a score of 0, which is the best and least dangerous. One received a score of 2 and two others received a score of 1. All scores are incredibly low on the scale and indicate no danger. All were green, with reliable data for confirmed their non-toxicity. This is an amazing achievement!

The only ingredient that is not rated on the site is “sodium lauryl glucose carboxylate”, which is a mild cleansing and foaming agent derived from coconut and corn. I wanted to be sure our customers get complete information, so here is an objective rating of the ingredient from another consumer guide called, “the Good Guide”:

Sodium lauryl glucose carboxylate raises no health concerns because:
  • It is not on any of GoodGuide’s lists of toxic chemicals which cause suspected or recognized health effects
  • It has not been detected in human tissue or urine
  • It is not a high production volume chemical that lacks safety data

So go ahead and indulge yourself with Mont Echo’s hair care and get healthier hair without risking your scalp!

Tips for Using the Facial Mask!

Do you know how to use Mont Echo’s Sea Buckthorn Facial Mask?

The mask is part of the protocol of clinical study that yielded spectacular results last year. Composed of s100% natural ingredients, the mask acts as both an effective scrub and a skin-smoothing mask. Used regularly, it naturally brightens the complexion and gently removes spots. Its vitamins nourish and provide unparalleled antioxidant protection. It soothes and softens irritated skin, and moisturizes and soothes sensitive skin.

To use as an exfoliating scrub, combine the mask in equal portions with cleansing cream and apply to the face for ten minutes. The mixture absorbs oil and begins to dry and crumble. Roll the mixture off your skin with your fingers. Dead skin cells are removed from the surface of the skin and your bright new skin is revealed! This scrub can be used 2 times a week followed by a tonic spray mist.

To use as a mask, mix the powder 1:1 with Age-Defence Cream, 1 spritz of Toning Mist and a add few drops of Age-Defence Serum for dry or mature skin. Apply to the face in a thick layer and leave for 20 minutes. Roll off and rinse with warm water. Follow with application of mist, serum and moisturizer as needed. For a a truly refreshing experience, refrigerate your Mist prior to final application

Satisfaction Guaranteed!



CHFA Quebec a Major Success for Mont Echo!

The CHFA (Canadian Health Food Association) tradeshow, held at Place Bonaventure February 1st and 2nd  of 2013, was a resounding success. The expo was only open to professionals in the health food and health products industries.

We presented our line of Age-Defence beauty products and our new line of hair care. We heard so many positive comments and so much enthusiasm from our visitors, it was very exciting!

We expected fewer attendants than the same show which was held in Toronto in September 2012, but were thrilled to find that there were actually far more visitors at our booth.

Different pharmacy chains have visited as well as the larger natural food chains and stores and, much to our surprise, a chain of supermarkets. There is a real demand for beauty products made ​​in Quebec with a proven efficacy AND 100% natural ingredients. Mont Echo, being “100% Naturally Effective,” is exactly what consumers want today!
Congratulations to the entire team of Mont Echo.

Traceability in skin care products

Canadian Sea Buckthorn

Traceability has long been an important topic in the food industry. In today’s global economy, your fruit likely originated in South America and your sausage may have been made with pork sourced from multiple countries. With such a lot of distance between the farm and your table, people are becoming increasingly concerned about what they are putting in their body… Where was it grown? What was it exposed to while growing and while being transported? How far was it transported? Who has handled it and how?

Consumers have also begun to advocate for greater traceability in the ingredients of products they put on their bodies. The skin absorbs large quantities of whatever it comes into contact with – nutrients, minerals, vitamins… and poisons. It is so important to treat the outside of your body with the same care with which you treat the inside.

How do you ensure that the products you are using are free of harmful chemicals and truly 100% natural? Trace the origin of the ingredients. If you can trace the ingredient to the source, you can be sure that it is natural or naturally derived. That way you can be certain it hasn’t absorbed harmful environmental pollutants, like heavy metals, during the growing process – and you can be certain that the ingredient IS what it claims to be. Countries in Europe have recently created new legislation to deal with traceability and to protect consumers after several frauds were uncovered. It was discovered in France, for example, that there was quite a lot more “Sea Buckthorn oil” being sold than could possibly have been produced worldwide. We found that a bit scary. What kind of oil, exactly, was being sold? What other countries may have been affected? The moral of the story: trace your ingredient to the source so you aren’t taken advantage of by companies looking to capitalize on a hot trend.

Here are five tips for choosing natural, traceable skincare products for yourself and your family:

  1. Take the time to read labels and minimize your exposure to harmful chemicals. Look for locally-grown, sustainably-grown and cleanly-grown ingredients.
  2. Consider both the environment of the ingredient source and the transport required to bring the ingredient to the final processor. Many organically grown teas in Asia, for example, are sprayed with pesticides on the dock before being loaded onto ships for transport to North America. Many ingredients in heavily polluted parts of the world absorb heavy metals and other toxins no matter how carefully they are grown.
  3. Ask for proof. Is the company willing to share information about the source of its ingredients? There are many ingredients – particularly spices and exotic oils – that can only be sourced non-locally. And many exact ingredient locations are closely guarded secrets. But that does not mean the ingredient can’t be grown and handled according to the highest standards, and it doesn’t mean the company cannot share with you general information about the source.
  4. When you have a choice, support your local growers. Local ingredients have a small environmental footprint, travel shorter distances, and are generally handled by fewer processors. Organic is great, but local is better.
  5. Remember that natural does not mean hypoallergenic or non-irritating. Always patch-test new products on your skin – non-synthetic ingredients are not engineered by man to be hypoallergenic!
