The Best Safe Skin Care
Did you know that 1 in 8 of the 82,000 ingredients used in personal care products like lotions and make-up are industrial chemicals? This includes carcinogens, pesticides, reproductive toxins, and hormone disruptors. Nor are there any shortage of plasticizers (chemicals that also keep concrete soft!), degreasers (like what’s used to get grime off of your car), and surfactants (stuff that reduces surface tension in water, as found in paint and inks). The lack of regulation of these products is shocking! What’s even scarier is that it’s not rare for items marketed as “all natural” to still contain carcinogenic preservatives like parabens. And, what adds to this terror is that our skin, which is our largest organ, absorbs about 60% of what we put on it!
Despite the fact that using safe, green products can be invaluable for our health, sorting through what’s what can be daunting and time consuming. Our goal is to change that with our Best Safe Skin Care consultation! Not only will we sort through all your toiletries to determine and educate you on what’s green and what’s not, but we’ll also draw up a customized list of more eco and human friendly alternatives for you.

What might be even scarier than the poorly regulated chemicals that go into our personal care products, are the chemicals in household cleaning agents. From toilet and drain cleaners to perfumed laundry detergent, continual exposure to these common products can result in mild to severe health issues, including reproductive toxicity, neurotoxicity, respiratory toxicity, asthma, cancer, and developmental toxicity.
We’ll sort through your cleaning agents and offer effective, green alternatives.
