Paya Organics Review

by Kristina Blasen (June 2011)

Last week, we were on vacation at Wisconsin Dells and spent a night at the Kalahari resort on our last day before heading back to Minnesota. It was pretty neat that they had Paya organics shampoo, conditioner and bath soap in the room.

According to their website, Paya products have:

•Biodegradable liquids and soaps made with natural and organic ingredients:
No Parabens, No Phthalates, No Mineral Oil

• Bottles made of PET, the most recyclable resin available

• Cartons & wrappers made with post-consumer recycled materials

• Cruelty free – never tested on animals

• All bottles and soaps are made in the USA

After being in the chlorine all day my hair was feeling dry and nasty, but this shampoo and conditioner worked great. The pool smell was gone and my hair was back to normal. It was strange though that the Kalahari is still using chlorine which is terrible for the body (lots of signs about showering off so you don’t get chemical burns and irritated skin, eyes, nose and throat were posted everywhere) when so many of the other hotels and resorts in Wisconsin Dells have switched to salt which is wonderful for the skin, not irritating and much nicer to play in!

We also stayed at the Wilderness Hotel where we had a great time, but they had the run-of-the-mill unidentifiable whitish shampoo in their bath though they had already switched to salt or some kind of non-chlorine mixture in their pools.

  1. I was first introduced to PAYA Organics during my family vacation at the Kalahari Resorts; it was good to see the products were eco-friendly. The lotion is the best! It is non-greasy and has a really pleasant smell. Best of all, the products are made with organic ingredients. I don’t mind ordering the products online; though, it would be nice if they were also available at retail stores.

  2. Don’t be fooled by the marketing of “salt pools”. The salt (sodium chloride) is used to make free chlorine in the water. The same exact chlorine as in the chlorine pool. The extra salt may feel good to the skin but is bad for the environment. Some jurisdictions in CA have already started to ban salt water pools.

  3. It’s awesome to pay a quick visit this web site and reading the views of all colleagues on the topic of this paragraph, while I am also zealous of getting experience.
