Proud To Be Green.

Kristen Gaffney - Wednesday, October 05, 2011

Pure Elements an Organic Salon is proud to be the only green, eco-friendly salon in Guilderland, New York.  Owner Kristen Gaffney’s dedication to organic hairstyling and beauty began out of a desire to provide clients with exceptional services and access to the very best organic and non-toxic beauty products.

After 10 years as a stylist in a traditional salon with exposure to harmful chemicals left Gaffney suffering from sinus and lung problems, she diligently researched organic, chemical-free products that would be better for her health, the health of her clients and the environment.  Gaffney opened Pure Elements an Organic Salon in 2009 to offer clients an alternative to the typical salon experience.  Pure Elements provides natural and organic hair and nail care, facial waxing and cosmetic services.

In August 2011, Gaffney launched the Pure Elements Wellness Shop next door to the salon located on Western Avenue across from Crossgates Mall.  As with the salon, the Pure Elements Wellness Shop features only high-quality natural and organic products. 

Products are fully researched, free from toxic ingredients such as ammonia, sodium lauryl sulfate, fillers, parabens, synthetic dyes and formaldehyde and contain natural or organic ingredients whenever possible. 

Product lines carried in the Pure Elements Wellness Shop include Simply Organic, Zoya Nail Polish, Onesta, Vermont Soaps, Jane Iredale Makeup, Bumble and Bee and John Masters Organics.  Earth Mama Angel Baby baby care products are also sold.

In addition to the extensive offerings of beauty products, Pure Elements Wellness Shop features massage services ranging from couples massage in a shared massage suite to Reiki.  Other massage techniques include Deep Tissue, Reflexology and massage for expectant mothers and athletes. In keeping with Gaffney’s mission, only natural and organic massage oils are used.
