1.   Start Reading the Labels on Beauty Products – Before you use beauty products, you need to start reading the labels.  This is the best way to find out what is really in them.  Sure, some may say they are safe, natural, or eco friendly, but you find out the truth when you check out the ingredients.  If you cannot figure out what the ingredients are, then don’t use the product on your body.

Natural and Organic Hair Loss Remedy

It is estimated that in the United States alone, 21 million women and 35 million men are affected by hair loss.  Men happen to suffer from it more than women, with 40 percent of the male population suffering from hair loss by the time they reach 35 years of age while 65 percent will have it by age 60.

The causes for hair loss are many, of which genetics play a significant role.  Other factors include psychological and physiological stress and ill health.  And although there are medical treatments for hair loss, natural remedies are preferred because of their lack of side effects, affordable methods and significant degree of efficacy.

Make Your Own Eco-Friendly Mouthwash at Home

You are highly commended for taking good care of your teeth and mouth through the use of toothpastes and mouthwashes.  After all, you are lessening your negative impact on the health care system and, consequently, on the environment.

Harmful to the Environment

Did you know that by using over-the-counter mouthwash, you are actually doing more harm to the environment? Just think of the many chemicals on mouthwashes that are harmful to the environment, which include formaldehyde, sodium lauryl sulfate, polysorbate and cetylpyridinium chloride.

Take note that these are toxic to aquatic organisms.  How, you might ask?  Well, when you spit out the mouthwash after swishing it through your mouth, you are contributing to the cesspools of toxic by-products of our society’s obsession to oral health at the expense of the environment.

Organic Perfumes & Fragrances

We all like to smell good and perfume and other fragrances are a lovely way to give ourselves that alluring smell we desire. Did you know that most of those perfumes are made with chemicals that come from crude oil? That is not very safe, nor is it good for the environment. There is a better solution to make you feel good – organic perfumes and fragrances.

Benefits of Going Organic

Organic materials are generally safe and they are derived from natural ingredients. There are no chemicals and no harmful substances in an organic perfume. This comes with many benefits. Benefits that include being safer for you and the environment.
