Let’s Talk Skin:
You skin is your LARGEST detox organ, capable of expelling toxins via perspiration released through the pores. By the same token, toxins applied to your skin enter into your system. So to the extent you can, AVOID petrochemical-based cosmetics, including MINERAL oil, petrolatum, synthetic colors, and synthetic fragrances they better your health will remain.
Personally, I began really caring and making informed decisions about my the products I was applying to my skin when I first became pregnant with my oldest. I started reading labels and understanding the dangerous consequences of certain toxins and chemicals that are in so many of the health and beauty products sold in this county. In addition, I realized how little regulation there is over many of these ingredients. Big companies are not looking out for OUR best interest and products from companies such as Johnson & Johnson have been found to have cancer causing ingredients you can read more on that HERE!
It can be scary, especially when you are pregnant and/or nursing, since these chemicals will make their way to your baby through your blood stream. That is why I have transitioned to using the brand Arbonne an all VEGAN and CRUELTY FREE company that is botanically based and free of harmful chemicals to keep my environment as clean as possible for the baby.
What Does it Mean for a Product to be VEGAN?
A product or company is CERTIFIED vegan if their product contains NO animal products, NO animal by-products, and performs NO animal testing.
So what makes a product NOT vegan?
Most cosmetic companies (even the prestigious ones) purchase ingredients from RENDERING PLANTS. Rendering plants are collection centers for animal left-over parts. DEAD animals from farms, ranches, slaughterhouses, road kill, euthanized animals, old restaurant grease, expired meat, etc. are sent to Rendering Plants where everything is ground up, boiled, and the rendered product is sold to cosmetic companies.
This greasy by-product is used in lipstick, eye makeup, foundation, moisturizers, soap and candles. The animal by-products contain hormone altering chemicals and toxins and sadly 97% of the skin care and makeup sold in the US contains this animal fat unless the bottle specifically says otherwise or labeled as VEGAN.
Why I CHOSE Arbonne?
