Toxins at Home

Are names of ingredients on product labels hard to pronounce? They're even harder on our health!

  • Those chemical names on the back of conventional personal care and cleaning agents' lables might be hard to say. The fact is that many are toxins, endocrine disruptors, irritants and even potential carcinogens is harder to swallow.

    The skin is the body's largest and most responsive organ, and what goes on our skin, is substantially absorbed into our bodies. What we spray into the air is breathed into our lungs. The residue of what we apply to clean our eating surfaces, slowly migrates into our bodies. Many of these synthetic chemicals are highly persistent too. There is growing evidence of the harmful cumulative effect of these persistent chemicals on our health.

    We hope that when you experience how simple, natural, nourishing and non-toxic materials do take care of most of your bodily and home cleaning needs, you will be inspired to extend that renewed simplicity and creativity to other parts of your life.
