It’s been a little over a year since I began my journey to switching over to all natural & organic products. I can’t believe how far so many of us have come in such a short period of time. I just had to make this post because I firmly believe that; There is no sane reason to subject ourselves to the chemical onslaught that is included in so many traditional beauty products! There are so many natural alternatives!
When I saw this incredible info-graphic picture from MindBodyGreen.com I just had to re-blog it (again). In fact I featured this photo on this post over a year ago. A picture is worth a thousand words, right? I wanted to write about it again because sometimes we all get into a rut with buying the same thing over and over again. We need a little push. We don’t take the time to do our research. We are worth it. If we don’t take care of ourselves, then who will?
Where To Start?
Take a Stand
We won’t stand for the cancer causing “questionable” ingredients in mainstream “beauty” products any longer. Or their multilevel advertising propaganda. What a waste of money. We are fully aware of the corrupt marketing that companies employ to try and paint their products as healthy. It’s just so unethical. Often I reach for my very worn and dogeared copy of Siobhan O’Connor’s incredible book, “No More Dirty Looks”. It never ceases to inspire me to keep “fighting the fight” toward a healthy and sustainable future for us all. We can choose to make our voices heard through our dollars. The money we spend can speak for us and show support to the brands that we trust and that are in business for our benefit. Support companies you know that combine organic & natural sustainably sourced products with ethical business practices. Many of the small women owned companies that I do business with rely on word of mouth and miniscule advertising budgets. They believe in putting their hard earned dollars into superior efficacious beauty materials. Clean, organic and sometimes exotic ingredients are sourced by these talented artisans .These are small businesses with integrity. They believe in life affirming principles and the old adage, “Do No Harm”. You read about them here on my blog. They are my go-to companies.
Make The Switch
Remember there is absolutely NO reason for us not to be more conscious about what we are applying to our skin. There is no shortage of highly-pigmented, long-lasting and delicious natural alternatives on the market compared to the chemically laden products we’ve all been so accustomed to using in the past.
Between my reviews, wonderful and informative blogs like Organic Beauty Talk, No More Dirty Looks, The Green Beauty Team, and some of my favorite blogs, there is incredibly useful information and more reasons then ever to make the switch over to non-toxic products.
I hope you will join me. There is power in numbers!
