Family - kidsIn our homes, the bathroom is a place for purity and beauty. Or is it really? Find out how to keep the family bathroom a beauty haven AND a totally safe place for everyone from babies to grown-ups. A holistic life lifestyle isn't only about healthy foods and vitamins; it's also about what you put on your skin and hair day after day.. Why? Because what you put on your skin eventually ends in your bloodstream and body fat exactly the same way as if you ate it.

Everything counts: what you take within and what you put without

We all love to have fresh and squeaky-clean smelling products in our bathroom; something that makes you feel good and ready to get going with the day in the morning and relaxed in the evening. Have you wondered what your shower gel or shampoo is made of? Or your favorite anti-aging moisturizer, which claims to make you look 10 years younger? Or this baby oil that looks so cute and safe?

Usually, there are dozens of chemical ingredients in each and every one of those products in your bathroom. Some of them even have names that are difficult to pronounce. In the past, scientists and doctors considered that these cosmetic chemicals were not harmful because it was believed that they cannot enter the body. That is why the FDA does not regulate the cosmetic industry the same way as it does pharmaceutical industry. In plain words, this means that there is no thorough testing of the safety of chemicals in personal care products . Tho-RadiaThus, the beauty products manufacturers can put whatever they want and consider safe in their creams, shampoos and lotions. In the end, it doesn't matter how pretty and glamorous the packaging is: what matter is what is INSIDE the very sexy packaging. A classical example of this faulty policy is the infamous Tho-Radia cream. Tho-Radia was a very popular anti-aging wonder-cream back in 1930s this contained Radium as it was shown that radium tightens and smoothes the skin. Imagine spreading Radium on your face, all happily because it has been shown to rejuvenate the skin. I would say that it would be a pretty deadly beauty makeover.

Chemical Beauty

Happily, today no one even thinks of putting radioactive materials in beauty products. However, in everyday personal care products, there are chemicals that are much sneakier than radioactive material because these are considered safe in the amount used, but... The truth is that chemicals from your shampoos, soaps, lotions and moisturizers CAN and DO get inside your body and accumulate over time. They are also found inside, in our blood, our tissues, our organs. They create a wreck in our bodies that could end up triggering diseases like ADHD, autism, cancer, infertility, Parkinson and others. The names of the top toxic chemical beasties are nitrosamines, phthalates, 1,4-dioxane, parabens, lead and hydroquinone.

Holistic lifestyle: your diet and vitamines are not enough

You may think that your body is clean and pure because you have a good diet and you exercise and detox regularly; therefore, it does not matter what kind of personal care products you use (after all you rinse most of them off anyway i.e. soaps, shampoos and others). If this is what you think, you are deadly wrong because everything counts when it comes to exposure to chemicals and pollutants. The accumulation of everyday chemicals in your body is called body burden and has been discovered only recently. To keep chemicals, pollutants and toxins outside of your body, you need to detox regularly (increase output), but you also need to limit the input. Food is a prime source of input when it's not organic. Personal care products are also a considerable source of chemical input in your body. Why? Because your skin lets things through. It's even more permeable in babies and children than in adults.

Your precious skin

Skin Your skin is your alargest organ and contrary to mainstream belief, it is not just a passive "shield" to protect the body from dust and microbes and sunlight. YOUR SKIN BREATHES, like your lungs. It absorbs oxygen and releases cellular wastes through perspiration. It is responsible for producing the vital Vitamin D thanks to sunlight. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the skin is ruled by the element of Metal, which governs the lungs and the large intestine. These three organs are essential gates: they let in something vital (oxygen for lungs, water for large intestine, oxygen and sunlight for skin) and they let out cellular waste. We all know that it's not good to breathe polluted air. Well, it's the same idea when you use any chemical personal care products -even soaps, shower gels or shampoos which you rinse off quickly- it's as bad as breathing in a very polluted city because your skin still absorbs some of it. It's even more pronounced in babies, children and elderly, as their skin is thinner.

The feedback loop

It is clear now that using chemical personal care products is not good for you. But it's not good for you in MORE ways than you may expect. This is because some chemicals do not degrade and stay in the environment, polluting everything and everywhere, accumulating in the food chain and actually ending up on your dinner table! Chemicals like DDT or germ-killing triclosan used in hundreds of soaps, toothpastes and deodorants. Researchers recently discovered traces of triclosan in dolphins. Dolphins get it from water and from fish they eat. Most of us eat fish, therefore, we ingest triclosan (along with all these other non-degrading chemicals used in cosmetics). Triclosan is bad news because it disrupts growth, development and hormonal balance. This is just one example!

So next time you use chemical personal care products, remember that it's not just bad for you and your family but bad SQUARED. NEVERTHELESS, you can stop this polluting non-sense and protect yourself and your loved ones at the same time. The solution is very simple and easy: choose certified organic personal care products.

Certified or Not?

If you are still wondering if and why you should go for organic personal care products, the answer is very straightforward: because it is safer and healthier for you and your loved ones. Today, quite a few non-governmental foundations are lobbying to have the US adopt the same rules for cosmetic products as Europe because Europe banned toxic chemicals from cosmetic use.

With Nature Purity, you don't even have to worry about it: all our products come from France and most of them are certified organic by the leading organic certification agency: Ecocert. This means that each product is controlled, non-polluting and certified from the beginning to the end: from the raw ingredients to the production facility. The environmental impact of each product is also controlled and kept to a minimum. So these products are good for you TWICE!

A matter of Beauty is also a matter of Health

Certified organic products are usually more expensive than regular personal care products filling up the shelves of pharmacies, supermarkets and department stores because they cost way more to produce! Good stuffs are not dirt cheap, especially when they are certified. But they are safer for you and your family. Non certified personal care products (even those claiming to be green or natural) may smell good and fresh and clean; but some of them are still full of BAD chemicals. Health is the most precious gift from life. You hear everywhere about the spiraling cost of health care and people getting more and more sick. Have you wondered why?

Choose a holistic lifestyle for you and your family, not only in the kitchen, but also in the bathroom. It's going to help you save thousands of $ in future health care costs and a lot of stress and worry. So take advantage of our Green Family Sale.
