I was sent an email the other day about a new book that talks about the Top Five Common Cancer Culprits. I gave myself a pat on the back as I do well with each category. The one that many people don’t realize can be harmful because you don’t actually ingest it orally is Personal Care Products.
Most lotions, shampoos, makeup, bubble bath, etc all contain harmful chemicals. You easily use them to cover your skin, smear on your face and let soak them into your skin. Hidden trouble.
I seek out companies and products like The Honest Company that is determined to make not only products that are less toxic for our body, but are thinking beyond that and want to reduce the amount of bad chemicals in our environment. They actively work to make their items safe from the initial testing, to the packaging and shipping.
In the workplace they watch their energy use, their building materials, and recycle/reuse what they can. Anything to make space more earth-friendly. They are proud to be a Certified B Corporation which is a new kind of company dedicated to making a profound social difference, safeguarding people and the planet, and making efforts to a be better business. It’s like earning a LEED or Fair Trade certification, but for a business. Very cool!
We sampled the products from their Free Trial ~ Shampoo, Lotion, Hand Wash, Detergent and Balm.
Shampoo & Body Wash was heavenly in its vanilla and orange scent. P’Diddy is very into ‘pooing’ his own hair and I only feel comfortable with organic, safe, brands. Happy to add this on to my list. Even okay to use on my own colored treated hair! Nice.
From your bathroom to your cleaning routine, be safe and healthy. It may save your life – and your kids!
I think it’s very important for companies Give Back ~

Are you using safe Personal Care Products for your family?
The Honest Company was started by a mom and a dad who, like many modern parents, were increasingly worried about products made with questionable chemical ingredients. But the alternatives they found were often expensive, inaccessible, bland, or ineffective. In response to this clear need for something better, they created The Honest Company to ensure that parents (or anyone for that matter!) could easily find natural and non-toxic eco-friendly products that are beautiful, effective, and affordable. From customized product bundles to diapers and wipes to an ever-expanding line of cleaning and personal care products, you can find everything you need at Honest.com and have it delivered directly to your front door.
