A big congratulations are in order for members of Team Corsage, who recently took on the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon to raise funds for The Corsage Project.

Team Corsage came together to run or walk anywhere from 5KM to a full marathon in support the young women they work with each year at their Boutique Ball. This year, the team raised a whopping $9,233.00. That money will go directly toward helping provide prom attire — free of charge — to Toronto-area young women and LGBT youth facing economic barriers. Together, with the support of their donors, they’re also raising funds for post-secondary scholarships. Congrats to the runners, volunteers, cheerleaders and team organizers!

As runner and committee member Leonie Tomlinson said in a recent Children’s Aid Foundation spotlight: this team “is an extraordinary group of like-minded individuals actively engaged in giving back to the community by way of walking, running, or volunteering to improve the quality of life of Toronto’s most vulnerable residents.”

With the changing leaves, autumnal produce, and crisp weather ideal for outdoor workouts, October is undoubtedly one of our favourite months of the year. Apart from the fall festivities, October also marks the start of Breast Cancer Awareness month. According to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, it’s the second leading cause of death by cancer in Canadian women, affecting one in nine Canadian women during their lifetime.

Our friends at TO112 are joining the pink movement this month by donating 25% of the proceeds from their pink label hair line to leading breast cancer research organizations.

Now, your mane won’t be the only one thanking you when you discover TO112’s 3-step hair ritual infused with tamanu and camellia oils.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s recent ban on a host of common ingredients in antibacterial soap reveals an ugly truth: the products that we trust the most are harming us. Many of the 19 banned ingredients, including triclosan and triclocarban, have been found to disrupt the body’s natural hormone cycles and cause muscle weakness. Additionally, several long-term implications of exposure to unsafe chemicals like these are still shrouded in mystery. After all, it was only in the last decade that the parabens and aluminum found in antiperspirants have been linked to breast cancer.

The team at TO112 is committed to inspiring complete harmony in mind, body, and space. For us, that means formulating a line of products that use the best of both science and nature to provide a rejuvenating and indulgent experience. Naturally, our lineup of hair, body, and lifestyle products are crafted from only the purest ingredients and are free of SLS, DEA and parabens. For extra measure, we’ve charged our entire line with 528 Hz, the frequency of love, to promote DNA repair and improved health.

With the chilly October air outside and dry heat indoors, there’s no better time to bundle up with a mug of local apple cider and to pamper your tresses with TO112’s restorative Cleanse, Condition and Console trio: Shampoo for Dry Hair, Conditioner for Dry Hair and our light styling and nourishing Hair Cream. On this ticket to hair paradise? Karma points included!
