Everyday we are exposed to hundreds of dangerous toxins. Whether they are in the air, or in our own homes, they are there. When you wake up in the morning you are already exposed to toxins. They may be in your toothpaste, your shampoo, soaps, deodorants, and so on. That’s a lot of chemicals right there just in your everyday A.M. routine. As for women, we now apply our makeup, creams, lotions, sprays which equals more toxins! Toxins otherwise know as Parabens are man-made chemical preservatives that are supposed to prolong the shelf life of a product. They however don’t prolong human shelf life with all of the pesticides, herbicides, and other petrochemicals used in the creation of these products.
When comparing Organic skincare and makeup products to Synthetic paraben filled products there is a dramatic difference in ingredients. Organic skincare is rich in vitamins, minerals, natural essential oils and fruit extracts that have been treated with no chemicals from the help of organic farming. Health conscious companies use natural preservatives derived from plants to elongate the shelf life of a product and keep the product safe.
When speaking of synthetic skincare clean beauty and makeup, the smell, texture, and overall product will just reak unnatural. Synthetics are known to cause more skin reactions and irritations then natural ingredients, and are simply not cared for the way organic products are.
We have been exposed to enough and now we need to get smarter, and do our own research on what we are putting on our bodies.
When I say skincare and makeup, that also means the skincare products you are using on your children. The baby lotions, baby creams, and wipes, they are all paraben filled and your using them on your new borns. There are many ways we can use healthy products on our children and we can make them ourselves in our kitchens. Healthy choices that we can control means no chemicals, and a safer life for our children, and our future.
When buying anything organic, from food to skincare make sure you see the “Certified Organic” stamp on the label. This means that it has been approved by the FDA’s standards to be a healthy product. Healthy products, means healthy people and environment… Now doesn’t that sound good!

1. Going through your bathroom cabinets and drawers, and checking for synthetic products.
