Would you knowingly let your family eat something toxic? I don’t think so. You do not want to use products filled with toxins, right? What’s in your families toothpaste, lotions, and sunscreen?
Did you know 60% of what you put on the body is absorbed through the skin? There are many products out there loaded with toxins, thus being vigilant about reading labels, knowing ingredients are key to you and your family health. Are they a Friend or Foe?
So, unless a product says, 100% Organic Certified… you need to do your research. Know that the manufacture changes the name to mask the original name. Labels stating “Kid Friendly-Safe” have nothing to do with ingredients or potential toxins that are in these products. And- just because the label says “NATURAL” doesn’t mean all ingredients are “natural“only 1- ingredient on the label has to be natural to be labeled so.
“100% Organic” while ‘Certified Organic” only means 95% or more organic ingredients are “Made with Organic Ingredients” means that only 70% or more of the product is organic.
Get the App “Think Dirty”, it is free and use it. Read and Research ingredients on the labels of products you use, like:
- Body wash
- Household cleaners
- Sun Screen
