TOXIC FREE LIVING
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last half a decade, you would have heard the term ‘what you put on your skin goes in’. Essentially, what this means is that whatever comes into contact with your skin ends up directly in your bloodstream. Your skin is a magnificent barrier to pathogens but not so great when it comes to toxic chemicals.
The toxic chemicals we are exposed to on a daily basis (particularly in our home) are scientifically proven and linked to so many different conditions and diseases. Asthma, eczema, sinus issues, eye irritations and even cancer are just a few. There is no point eating healthily, then jumping in the shower and lathering yourself in poison every day. It is the accumulative exposure that poses the greatest risk. Do yourself a favour and start to change over to low toxin/toxic free brands of household and personal care products.
If you’re thinking to yourself that changing everything over is a HUGE task, just start with your laundry powder. Your clothes and sheets are washed in the stuff, and then sit on your skin all day long and all night. The residue from detergent in your clothes is constantly in contact with your skin and going into your bloodstream. Not to mention all the artificial fragrances you’re breathing in. There are high quality, scientifically formulated products on the market now, so there is no need and no excuse to keep using toxic ones. We have plenty of great options here in store, so come and let our friendly staff point you in the right direction.
If you would like to do some more research on the topic of toxic chemical exposure, we highly encourage you to take a look at the Youtube documentary titled ‘Unacceptable Levels’ linked below. Give it a watch and get educated about the dangers you may be unknowingly exposing yourself and your family to!
Happy viewing and best of luck with your research!
