Avoid chemicals in your day to day

When using natural products we will be making sure that their components are not hazardous to our health, and in addition, we will be helping the planet
Evita los productos químicos en tu día a día
If us setting the amount of chemicals that we use every day us sorprenderíamos and us replantearíamos if we can't find some natural alternatives to prevent damage to our health.
In this article are the tracks to discover which of these products can be replaced by other more natural and thus benefit our health and also to Earth.

Household cleaning

To clean the floor, wash dishes or clothes we use chemicals that can be perfectly substituted by others as basic as lemon, baking soda or vinegar. With these products has been traditionally cleaned and today they continue to be equally effective. They are especially recommended when there are small children in the home.

Body hygiene

Every day we agredimos the natural balance of our body with too aggressive with our pH. While some products claim to have a neutral pH 5.5, as of our skin, the truth is that only some organic are actually beneficial.
Every day we use all kinds of products containing toxic substances, heavy metals, oil or aluminium, etc., that they enter our body through the pores and skin and generate toxins which in the long run may be the cause of many diseases, and short term also causes problems of skin, allergies, cysts, etc..
We offer natural alternatives to all of them:
  • Shampoos: shampoos are increasingly more sophisticated textures, and aromas but all of this is achieved with chemical ingredients. They leave our hair with a good look but succeed by harmful substances and also only a short time, since our hair becomes dirty with ease. We recommend using shampoos natural, made with natural ingredients such as saponin or coconut, either learn to wash our hair without using shampoo.
  • Soaps: soaps detergents include among their ingredients, which damage our skin, the dry and more rapidly aging. You can opt for the of Glycerin, coconut or develop our own homemade SOAP.
  • Toothpaste: current toothpastes much damage the pH of our mouth, acidify it and alter their natural environment, so we recommend brushing our teeth with ecological or home-made toothpastes.
  • Deodorants: most deodorants contain aluminum, a heavy metal very harmful for our health, cause of neurodegenerative diseases. It is also especially dangerous for women, due to the proximity of the armpit with the breast, causing the long breast cysts. We will seek bar deodorant free of aluminum or we will prepare our own homemade deodorant.
  • Moisturizers: moisturizing creams that moisturize our skin and apparently nourish it, are actually made with paraffin and other derivatives of the petroneo, as well as harmful parabens. It's much healthier to choose natural products such as oil of coconut, argan, almond, Sesame, the shea butter, etc.

Feminine hygiene

Feminine hygiene, which has both advanced with the emergence of compresses and tampons of last generation, is indeed a source of toxic products containing brighteners and other toxic substances. Instead we recommend organic products or by other more natural and alternative as the menstrual cup and the packs of fabric; both products are reusable and although they require continuous cleaning also are healthy and more economic.

Cosmetics are often also highly toxic because they contain very aggressive because they must have strong and lasting effects. They contain heavy metals derived from petroleum, etc.
We should instead look at natural stores products that use natural ingredients. For example, tint eyelashes made exclusively with vegetable dyes, elaborate lip bars with natural dyes and vegetable oils or eyeliners type khol or kahal, a dark ink from India which is also very therapeutic, enabling you to clean the eyes of all kinds of impurities.
Some products are quite more expensive than conventional ones, but we should prioritize health and also its long will that they are still more profitable.
