From TV studios to movie trailers, from celeb stylists to leading talent, the recent demand for John Masters Organics products in Hollywood has been off the charts. As stars become educated about the dangers of toxic beauty ingredients like parabens, sulfates, phthalates and many more, they seek safe and natural products that truly perform and, of course, they are turning to the best. At John Masters Organics, the phone is ringing off the hook with agents, producers, makeup artists and stylists requesting products they trust and love for use on their talent and, in many cases, the celebrities themselves are behind the requests.

Oliver says his "Favourites were the Blood Orange and Vanilla body wash and cream, which smell good enough to eat, and the Lavender and Rosemary Shampoo which is so fresh, washing your hair is like plunging your scalp directly into a rosemary bush and giving it a wiggle. Of the styling products available, I particularly liked the Sweet Orange and Silk Protein Gel. "

More and more celebrities are demanding organic and sustainable products. Sharisse Fine, the lead stylist for hit HBO show True Blood, has been regularly using John Masters Organics on her famous cast (including Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Sam Trammell, Tara Thornton, Alexander Skarsgard, Carrie Preston, and Ryan Kwanten). Here's what she has to say about the line:
"I prefer to use all organic hair care products to style my clients' and actors' hair. I choose to use John Masters Organics hair care on True Blood because of the integrity of ingredients and for the end results which are achieved. Some of my favorites are Bourbon Vanilla & Tangerine Hair Texturizer, which I like to use on the shorter men's hairstyles to add shine and movement without a greasy look. I especially love the volume and texture that I can get when I apply Sweet Orange & Silk Protein Styling Gel to wet hair before blow waving. It really enhances the hold when blowing hair straight. I use Sea Mist on the ladies, when the hair is damp, before diffusing, to achieve a natural wave. It's also helpful for a strong but not stiff hold when I use curling tools to create a more defined curl. Since I work with a lot of heat while styling, I like to spritz Lavender Hydrating Mist throughout the day, to keep my actors' hair hydrated without losing the set style. I also encourage my actors to use Lavender & Avocado Intensive Conditioner, in conjunction with the appropriate shampoo, as part of their daily hair care regime to keep a constant and even level of moisture and protein on the hair shaft."
