Health – We hear this all the time from our customers. You are frustrated with the marketing out there. You so diligently inspect the label in the store. You see the ‘all natural’, ‘organic’ inscribed on products. You purchase what you think is safe for yourself and your family, only to get home after a long day, kick your feet up and inspect further. The ingredient list, in fact, contains chemicals! You do your research. Some sites claim these chemicals are safe, non-irritating, non-allergenic, non-toxic, non-carcinogenic … but you dig further. You read about the side effects of synthetics, alcohol, thickening agents, perfumes and wonder… Is this really safe?
Can we not trust an industry that has regulations and restrictions on labeling?… an industry that assures us these products are safe, yet our skin gets irritated. We have allergic reactions, and who knows what other side effects we experience without connecting it to our products?
All cosmetic companies here in Canada do have to follow mandatory labeling guidelines. However, if a small amount of a certain ingredient is present it may not have to be identified on the label. The lines are blurry. A company might claim ‘all natural’ because ingredients do come from natural sources, but once extracted and altered they can be toxic.
Here are a few chemicals we found in skincare that claims to be “natural”. Their possible toxic reactions can occur through inhalation, skin exposure and ingestion.
skin and lung irritation, toxic to the kidneys, nervous system, liver, organ damage.
Magnesium Aluminum Silicate:
developmental /reproductive toxicity, neurotoxicity, organ system toxicity
Sodium Sterol Lactylate (SSL):
itching, swelling, mucus production, muscle spasms, hives and rash formation
eczema, panic attacks or develop major depressive disorder
And this was in a BABY lotion!
Why risk slathering these on your baby? Unfortunately, we could list pages and pages of other poisons found in products that claim they are natural and safe. It isn’t a fair world out there, but don’t worry… you have us.
Earth to Body uses only pure goodness from the EARTH for your BODY. What you lather on your hair, your face and your body gets absorbed into your delicate system. We proudly encourage you to read OUR ingredient list and be rest assured. We use ingredients that are good enough to eat. AND we use ingredients that can actually reverse the damage done by chemicals! See our FULL INGREDIENTS LIST HERE. All of our products are 100% natural except for creams and lotions which are 95%. It is impossible to make a cream or lotion (water and oil base) without an emulsifying wax. I have never seen another cream or lotion on the market as pure as ours. All have a shelf life. This is what makes them so good for you. See About Our Product and Packaging.
