In today’s world, we are surrounded by chemicals, toxins, man-made this, and highly-processed that. We make decisions as to what to purchase and how to spend our days based on what we are comfortable with, and what fits in with our own values and beliefs. But when you have a baby, suddenly it’s not just you anymore.
Natural Beauty Week kicks off next week. We're big fans of all-natural skincare here at The Purist - let us tell you why.
Conventional skincare products make the promise of beauty...but they also contain toxic ingredients (formaldehyde, parabens, petroleum and coal tar, just to name a few) that are harmful to both our bodies and environment.
Did you know that 60% of what we put onto our skin is absorbed into our bodies and bloodstreams as though we were swallowing it?
Did you know that skin allergies, cancers, disruption to hormone balance, reproductive issues, infertility, birth defects and learning disabilities have ALL been linked to chemical toxicity in the body?
