Toxin-Free Living

Reducing your toxic load is vital to your home environment and your overall health. Chemicals get into our bodies by breathing in toxic fumes and are absorbed through our skin. Most cleaning products on the market require you to wear gloves and/or mask to prevent harm. Many of these toxic ingredients are not covered by the Toxic Substances Control Act as they are outdated or grandfathered in.

Toxin-Free Beauty
Simple DIY Recipes for Your Body

Your skin is the largest organ in your body. The skin consists of two layers: the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis is what we see, feel, and touch. The dermis layer is below the epidermis and contains small blood vessels, nerve endings, oil and sweat glands, and hair follicles. The dermis also contains collagen and elastic tissue that keeps the skin firm and strong. Beneath the dermis lies the hypodermis and subcutaneous fatty tissue. The skin has three main functions: protection, regulation, and sensation.

Getting ready in the morning is one of the toxic enriched activities we can do to ourselves. Often times we shower with warm or hot water, doing this opens our pores and welcomes anything we put on our bodies. There are so many harmful chemicals in shampoos, conditioners, lotions, makeup, and other products we use. These harmful ingredients are absorbed into our bodies when we apply them to our skin.
