When was the last time that you took a peak at the ingredients of your everyday products. How many of them did you actually recognise or even know what they were? Sadly so many of the products that we use in our everyday like are jam-packed with substances that impossible to identify let alone pronounce. Then there is the impact that they have on our health. Then there are the ones that we do indeed know. Like lead in lipstick. Parabens in shampoo. Formaldehyde in nail polish. There are so many ingredients that we would not knowingly have anywhere near us.
It is a scary thought but one that we have to start thinking about. What are we using, ingesting and living with. Now I am not suggesting that the solution is to become a complete health nut that disposes of deoderant, razors and only wears hemp clothing. I simply believe that if we become conscious consumers and really start voting with you money then it is far more likely that these terrifying ingredients will no longer make their way into our daily lives.
What I am interested in are health & beauty products that don’t leave you smelling like you have rolled in your garden, actually work and leave you feeling beautiful. I am also interested in things that can help you to lessen your impact in the world. Living in a plastic world our impact is immense. It is not all doom and gloom though. There is now so much out there that help us to live a ‘greener’ life without hemp but also without nasty diseases that our plastic fantastic world can promote.
