Cosmeticians have a work environment that resemble the hairdressers’ work environment, which is why many cosmeticians have requested Green Salon to make an initiative that:
- Help cosmeticians with products with less problematic chemicals, less energy consumption, and less environmental strain.
- Ensure the customers that the Green Clinic follows Green Salon’s criteria
At the moment there are 3 certified Green Clinics.
Beauty Avenue in Frederiksberg in Copenhagen, Go Gang Klinik for Fodterapi in Copenhagen and Mynthe in copenhagen.
Green Clinic’s programme comprises a number of obligatory requirements that must be met from day 1 along with improvements concerning environment and health.
Green Clinic’s complete criteria can be seen here
In order to become a certified Green Clinic, the daily leader must participate in Green Clinic’s theoretical course. The course is held with Green Salon’s theoretical course at the moment, but with an additional section focusing on conditions for cosmeticians.
The course addresses health conditions, health precautions, legislation, chemical substances and environmental labelling related to cosmetics.
After the course you will have an understanding of the health risks within the trade, as well as being able to actively participate in improving the working environment and selecting products with less health and environmental impact. The course also provides good and concrete advice on environmental and energy issues in cosmetic clinics.
