I’ve always been a very health and environmentally conscious consumer, particularly when it comes to what I eat. I read labels. Anything I can’t pronounce, I don’t consume. I like to keep things simple. Lately I have become even more vigilant, not only about what I put in my body, but what I put on it. Especially since there is mounting evidence surrounding the toxicity of ingredients commonly found in many self care “beauty” products. If you are worried about this stuff going down your drain and polluting the ocean, think about what it is doing to your body. I have recently come to learn that 80% of what you put on your skin ends up in your blood stream.
Besides that, who needs all those over priced, over rated skin care regimens anyway? Whenever anyone compliments me on youthful glowing complexion (I’ll be 51 next month) I tell them I wash my face with Dr. Bubbles handmade all natural soap that costs $5 a bar. *
Dr. Bubbles is also my friend, Dorothy D. who is a research scientist and the chief bubblologist at Dr. Bubbles Handmade Soap. She studies the effects of fragrance on the human body and attempts to solve some of the world’s skin problems with her truly all natural skin care products. Dr. Bubbles natural skin care products grew out of a need to solve her gardener’s hands problems and she has helped me immensely because I have always had extremely sensitve skin. (I break out in a rash whenever I walk past the fragrance counter of any department store and those cloying, heady scents nauseate me.)
Dr. Bubbles soaps and all natural skin care products are clean, fresh smelling and safe for my body and the environment. It has also become a soothing ritual for me every night before I go to sleep to slather my hands (and my husband’s) with the Bar None Shea Butter Lotion Bars. I also love and highly recommend the Nobeo (Get it? No B.O.?) deodorizing body powder. Not only is it talc free, it does not contain aluminum chlorhydrate, which is commonly found in most antiperspirants and deodorants and known as a human reproductive, developmental and neurotoxin. Because of its known toxicity, this ingredient is banned in many countries outside of the U.S.
Be safe and keep it simple. Wash your body the old fashioned way. Use soap.
