Most conventional goods are made without much care about the by-products of their production. Some people think that wearing leather is good because it’s ‘natural’ when, in fact, leather tanning is among the most toxic, dirtiest processes. Others might think wearing jeans is good, as jeans are cotton and don’t consume animal products in their making. But it turns out that cottons can be extremely toxic because of all the pesticides that go into growing cotton as well as the denim production process of softening, fading and dying. The list goes on. You buy a soap, cleanser, even food items thinking they’re natural or organic as the label claims. However, there is no governmental regulation of these terms so anyone can use them OR abuse them. And they do. That so-called natural product may contain petrochemicals, formaldehyde and other nasty toxins which are inhaled, ingested and/or absorbed into your skin with every use. For every product you use, there is probably a lot that you don’t know about it. Hopefully some are good, or at least not bad. But if you’re like us, you’ll likely find that most are pretty unhealthy, even harmful. We’re not here to scare you. On the contrary, we’re here to help.
We want to arm you with a list of products that are not only safe for your use we want them to be great products! We want you to feel that endorphin high from buying and using a product you like that’s good for you, good for your loved ones, and good for the planet.
