What is in that stuff your using on your body?


Oh, I am learning lots about synthetic ingredients and what to look out for such as Sodium Sulfates, Parabens, Petrochemicals such as Paraffin, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Propylene Glycol found in moisturizers. It is way scary what we may be putting on and into our bodies. 

Cleansers, moisturizers and make-up is a good place to start reading labels. Read the packaging on products as well, to find out if they are made with paper containing post-consumer recycled content. No only are we to be aware of what we are putting into and onto ourselves but what are we doing with the containers and packaging of our 'stuff'. Recycle of course but cut down right off when you have an opportunity to do that. 

Look at clothing labels and see where you can buy modal, tencell or lyocell in addition to organic fabrics. Content is King! Find out what you are putting on your body. 
Educate yourself.
