It‘s important to understand that product sales In the ‗natural‘ and ‗organic‘ body care industry are driven by marketing and advertising gurus driven with the single intention of increasing profits for their clients. This is their role and they don‘t distinguish quality…. Many of the big cosmetics companies have jumped on the “organic” bandwagon regardless of their chemical preservative system, synthetic additives, fragrances and perfumes, plus a host of thousands of other chemical ingredients. Using catchy phrases like ―vitamin-e‖, “naturally-based ingredients”, “green tea”, “anti-oxidants” and many others, they hope to fool us into believing their products are natural, healthy and safe…and they’re not!! Just read the labels. It‘s time to realise that our bodies are meant to be at one with nature and that technology whilst part of our lives, has become detrimental to the long term health of humans and our planet? So what can we do to change this? As an informed consumer you have the power to make change simply by using your ‗buying‘ power. Be conscious of the products you choose. As you ‗detox‘ your home you will improve the health and wellbeing of yourself, your fam-ily, your pets and the planet.
Together we can make a difference. It‘s called PEOPLE POWER

Supermarket, drug store, pharmacy and health food store shelves are flooded with products that claim to be organic or natural and safe to use on your kids and you. However ‗eco-marketing‘ and ‗green‘ labelling‘ disguise the reality of the synthetic chemical ingredients in your baby products.
There is no enforcement or federal regulations in many countries that prevent companies from labelling these products natural or organic, even when they’re loaded with synthetic ingredients! For example, many baby lotions that claim to be ‗organic‘ many contain Propylparaben, a toxic chemical known to cause skin rashes and allergic reactions.
Research shows contact with this chemical on babies or children should be avoided! Another example is a baby shampoo that also calls itself organic, but includes the ingredient Cocamidopropyl Betain, a chemical that causes eye and skin irritation! These synthetics have definitely not been approved as ‗organic‘ ingredients, nor would they be. Yet they are found in most of our personal care products and we‘re led to believe they are safe to use on us and our kids.

They accumulate in the food chain and end up in our bones, organs, blood, fat, urine, ovaries and sperm. If you are pregnant they are passed onto your baby child via the placenta or later through your breast milk. (Article #1 – outlines the results of a study of the umbilical cords undertaken by the Red Cross. You may be shocked by what you read.) What‘s scary is that over half these chemicals have never been tested for their toxicity on humans, especially babies? So what happens when they‘re all mixed together to become a shampoo, bubble bath or baby lotion? Yes, you’re right! They become a toxic concoction!
About now you’re probably thinking how heavy this all feels. I’m hearing you!
How good do you feel knowing you are becoming wiser, more informed and
conscious about what‘s happening in your environment?
How does it get any better than that?
