Looking after your Skin-The Natural Way.
In everyday life we have accepted the fact that chemicals exist in our consumable products ie: soaps, shampoos, deodorants and even our household cleaning products. Potentially you may be applying more than 200 chemicals directly onto our body’s biggest organ – our skin. We look at what we eat because that’s what we’re putting inside our bodies, but how often do we look at ingredients when we buy products for our skin?
Why Chemical Free?
If the products you use contain harmful ingredients such as harsh, toxic chemicals, these ingredients make their way into your body, your blood and lymphatic system. Some beauty products may contain a concoction of carcinogenic chemicals, allergens, and irritants.
Eliminating the nasties
To eliminate a lot of the toxic chemicals, preservatives, that are harmful to our bodies, choose organic and natural/handmade skin care products, read product labels and become educated about what ingredients to avoid when selecting body care products. Petroleum derivatives, preservatives, synthetic dyes go by many names. A few examples of common ingredients to steer clear of are sulfates, parabens, and phenoxyethanol.
Once you are aware of the chemicals in your household products you can start to eliminate them slowly and be on your way to a toxic free environment for you and your family..
