I’m sure you are familiar with the term “we are what we eat”. It make sense that the food we eat can and does affect our internal health. Then why wouldn’t the products we apply to our skin also affect our skin-health? There is no question that they do.
Our skin is our largest organ, and on a daily basis it is barraged with multiple chemicals, pollutants, irritants, plastics, and much, much more. They are so ingrained in our lifestyle that they are difficult to avoid, but we can choose our skin care products more carefully.
We just need the knowledge to empower us as consumers to allow us to choose better. And, that is why you are reading this page. Because you want to learn and make the right product decision for you and your family.
This is by no means an exhaustive list, but it is a start. If you have any questions, please reach out and I’ll do my best to try to give you the answers. After all, I’m still learning right along with you.
