Nature-Inspired Skin Treatments

Have you ever stopped to contemplate how many skin treatments or products we use on a daily basis? You may not think it is that many until you consider:

  •  Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Other hair products such as curl enhancers, straightening lotions and volumizers
  • Hairspray
  • Soap
  • Deodorant
  • Toothpaste
  • Mouthwash
  • Shaving creams
  • Moustache and beard oils and conditioners
  • Body lotion
  • Foot crèmes
  • Sunscreen
  • Insect repellants
  • Lip balm
  • Facial cleansers and toners
  • Anti-aging products
  • Acne and blemish diminishers
  • Moisturizers
  • Make-up

Lately I’ve begun to wonder if there is a correlation between what we put on our bodies and some of the allergies, sensitivities and illness that surrounds us. That consideration has led me down a path where I am consciously purchasing products that are free from certain chemicals and instead opting for personal care products that are either organic, natural or botanically based. This site is not about naming products that contain harmful chemicals but rather celebrating the many excellent skin treatments and products that avoid known toxins such as parabens and petrolatums.

While some people believe that the concept of toxins being absorbed into your skin is non-factual and just a marketing tactic of manufacturers of organic and natural personal care products to generate business, that seems unlikely to me. In March 2016, researchers at University of California, Berkeley, and Clinica de Salud del Valle de Salinas published the results of their study in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives. The study demonstrated that taking “even a short break” from certain kinds of personal care products can lead to a “significant drop in levels of hormone-disrupting chemicals in the body”. So they are getting into your body somehow….

Search for Skin Treatments

And so as I began my search for skin treatments and products that met my new standard of excellence, I discovered a company at the forefront - Arbonne. They have been producing scientifically tested products using pure, botanically based ingredients for over 35 years.

They were green long before there was a green movement! I adore everything about the company and I am very proud to recommend their products. Arbonne isn’t the only company whose products are created with the utmost integrity and finest ingredients though and I will showcase alternatives as I discover them as well.

Kick back, relax and learn more about botanically based skin treatments and products or go directly to Arbonne to shop for items with pure, safe, beneficial ingredients.
