Safe, American-made Cosmetics at Salon Aponte

The American consumer’s widespread new consciousness about the advantages of using only safe, non-toxic products has greatly influenced women’s choice of cosmetics. Salon Aponte’s Nancy Aponte, celebrating her 20th year and concerned about the chemicals commonly used in salons, has been on a search for natural alternatives. “We women are not going to stop wearing makeup, painting our nails and coloring our hair,” she says, “and at least today we have choices.” Aponte looks for what she calls “clean lines” that are American-made. “One is created right here in Danbury,” she says, referring to Fragrant Offerings by Adrianne Roberts, a line of natural soaps (liquid and bar), body lotions, oils and air fresheners. Aponte and Roberts have also combined forces for that past two years, participating together at the Monroe Farmers Market. Another exciting addition to Salon Aponte is an organic product line called Onesta, which is Italian for “honesty”, with all products and raw materials made in the U.S. This line uses post-recyclable plastics, is fueled by windmill power, and donates 10% of their net profits to cancer research. These kinds of forward-looking choices, along with body sugaring, which is a natural hair removal system, other varied green products, and the availability of Reiki treatments, make Salon Aponte a safe and special place.

Salon Aponte is located at 838 Main Street (Tollgate Plaza) in Monroe. To schedule an appointment call 203.261.2838. Learn more at
