It’s important to think about what were putting on our body as well as what we put in. Our skin is the largest organ in our body and anything we put on it, creams, sprays, perfume, cosmetics and shampoos/conditioners are being absorbed through the skin instantly. Many people think that if it is natural and organic it doesn’t work as well. This is not true! Most of the ingredients in our make up bags are petrochemicals, (chemicals derived from petroleum). Some of the ingredients are used in plastics and are known endrocrine disruptors. Yuck! Not to mention the horrible animal testing that goes on in the laboratories.Here is a recent article from the Food Matters blog with a more thorough list of the chemicals to look out for. http://www.foodmatters.tv/articles-1/what-in-the-world-are-you-putting-on-your-skin
Here are some of the daily products I use that I love (they really work!)
Dr. Bronners lavender hemp castile soap– smells so good and has many different uses. I use this as my daily body wash.
