How many products do you currently have in your bathroom? 5? 10? 20?
When you wake up in the morning, you’re probably engaging with the following products:
- Face wash
….and that’s just before breakfast. Maybe after you apply makeup, which includes a foundation, bronzer, mascara, eye-liner, lip tint.
No wonder the average women applies 168 chemicals to her body everyday. Not to mention, 12.2 million adults are using known carcinogens in their daily skincare routine, simply because they are not aware of what is in their personal care products.

We all know how harmful mainstream deodorants are. So why do we keep buying them?
I get it-often it’s hard to come across a natural solution for deodorant that actually helps with body odour.
Today is another friendly reminder that clogging your pores with aluminium (that’s right! It’s in your deodorant and even mentioned in the ingredients), and parabens (literally cancer causing chemicals!), has to stop.
Luckily there’s Native. Their natural deodorants are free of all chemicals and toxins, and are responsibly made in the USA. Not only do their deodorants actually get the job done, they are extremely economical, and they offer an extended product line to help take more chemicals out of your bathroom, including fluoride-free toothpaste.
Hand in Hand
Remember those 168 chemicals I was mentioning earlier?
Imagine a brand that is so transparent, they tell you exactly what their main ingredients are (and why they stick to them).
Hand in Hand’s core ingredient list is a recognizable 11 items that you can actually pronounce. Their “sustainable suds” are made in the USA and are vegan, cruelty-free, and palm oil free.

Olive oil is one of the best oils for killing bacteria and hydrating your skin. Utilizing olive oil in skin care has always been a practice in the Middle East, but not as heavily practiced in North America.
