Here at Pink Apple, we love so many of the all natural personal care products that are available. Why do we love these products? For starters, they avoid potentially harmful ingredients, such as:
Parabens: Antimicrobials that can be absorbed through the skin that have been linked with cancer, especially breast cancer, endocrine disruption, immunotoxicity, reproductive toxicity, neurotoxicity and skin irritation.
Artificial fragrances: can cause headaches, cancer, respiratory ailments and is often used as a blanket term for a slew of additional toxins that they do not want to list in the ingredients
BHT (Butylated Hydroxytoluene): A common preservative and fragrance ingredient known to irritate the eyes, skin and lungs and cause organ toxicity, immunotoxicity and allergies
Our friends at Blossom Organics have a full list of harsh ingredients here .
All natural products may help if you suffer from acne, eczema, psoriasis, and sensitivity. They are created to work with your body’s natural processes to help repair and rejuvenate your skin, and won’t clog your pores. If you are experiencing chronic skin issues, such as redness or irritation, you might think about switching to an all-natural skin care regimen. Aside from you and your health, the chemicals in many popular skin care products have the potential to get into our water and the environment.
By now I bet you’re wondering, what are some of our favorite all-natural personal care products? In terms of lubes, we LOVE any Blossom Organics, Sliquid Natural Organic or Good Clean Love products. GLYDE and Sir Richard’s make amazing vegan condoms, from 100% natural latex (from rubber trees) and they do not test on animals. Intimate Organics has a line of lovely massage oils, fragranced from organic extracts, including aloe and gingerroot. Since most of these products are not sold in your corner drug store, you may want to think about ordering them online. Visit our website for a full selection of natural personal care products.
Happy International Women’s Day!! Also known as International Working Women’s Day, marked every March 8th by celebrating and sending e-cards and gifts to the women who mean the most in your life. Thousands of events occur not just on this day but throughout March to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.
The 2013 theme: “The Gender Agenda: Gaining Momentum” is the 2013 theme of our internationalwomensday.com website. Last year our 2012 theme was Connecting Girls, Inspiring Futures which supported the United Nation’s (UN) first International Day of the Girl celebrated on 11 October 2012. The UN declares an International Women’s Day theme and for 2013 it is “A promise is a promise: Time for action to end violence against women”. In 2012 it was “Empower Rural Women – End Hunger and Poverty”. Many organizations develop International Women’s Day themes relevant to their local contexts. For example, the European Parliament’s 2012 theme was “Equal pay for work of equal value”.
