I never gave much thought of how natural or organic my families personal care products were. That changed after my husband found out he had Celiac, a gluten intolerance. When you have Celiac you have to pay attention to all products with gluten, not just your food.
To ensure no gluten I had to thoroughly read all ingredients on everything I bought. This made me realize how many chemicals my family was being exposed to just from the products we used daily . I did some research after coming to this realization, and discovered how bad some of these chemicals were for us. I decided then to do my best at converting my family to natural and organic products.
Anyone wanting to live more organic definitely needs to give their a personal care items a “green makeover.”
A good point to remember is, what you put on your body, ends up in your body. Certified organic products are made with ingredients that are free of harmful chemicals. By using organic hair products and organic skin products you can reduce the amount of harmful toxins that our bodies are exposed to through our scalp, hair and skin.
The only issue from using organic products is they do cost more, sometimes a lot more. I purchase most products from Amazon, but some are available in my local grocery store, usually in the Natural/Organic Section. Also, I use the Honest Company monthly family essentials bundle to save up to 35% on their products.Here are the products we use: Deodorant:
