Why Use Organic Products for Your Skin



Your body can absorb toxins not only through your mouth, but also through what you put on your skin, hair, and nails. Nearly 70% of all commercial products found on drugstore shelves were found to be tainted with chemicals that are linked to Cancer and other Health Problems.

Here are some ingredients you should look out for: Petroleum or Mineral Oil, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate,  Titanium Dioxide,  and Parabens.

These chemicals can cause: Hormonal Imbalance, Fatigue, Headaches, Digestive Upsets, Flu-Like Symptoms, and Aching Joints, and Much More.

Daily exposure to these toxins can cause an overload in your body.  If you use make-up on a daily basis, for instance, you can absorb up to almost 5 pounds of chemicals into your body each year!

Products that contain these various poisins are completely devoid of all natural protective antioxidants, and healing agents.  Although they may bring temporary improvement, they will also accelerate the aging of the skin.  Unfortunately, they also do not protect you from skin cancer and damage through UVA and UVB exposure, the ozone, and pollution.  Unearthing these facts had opened my eyes entirely.  After some considerable research I found the ingredients capable of repairing the damage caused by these elements.  The natural anti-oxidants and healing properties contained in my organic skin care line are necessary to revive, repair, and pamper your skin from head to toe ! They are Hand Crafted by Me to You in Prince Edward Island Canada with Lots of Love.

Also

Most of my ingredients are unrefined.  If the ingredient states that it has been refined.  It means that it has gone through a chemical process to remove the colour or odour.  Which also removes most of its healing agents

Another important factor to me is where and who my most valued ingredients come from.  The employees of all the companies I purchase from have fair wages and maternity leave.  This has always been key in my choosing of suppliers.
