First lets start with why Cortizone aka steroid creams are unnecessary. Steriod creams are sold over the counter or prescribed for skin issues like: rash, eczema, psoriasis, etc. They are used to reduce inflammation and itching. People think “over the counter” =safe. Parents are willingly buying this for themselves and kids without knowing that continued… Continue reading This vs that…Everything Salve for skin itch and irritations
AHH face wash…another product we use multiple times per day, so overtime we are exposing ourselves to hundreds of chemicals. Cetaphil is generally labeled as a “safe” or “gentle” brand.

It is 100% toxic petroleum… Continue reading This vs that…journey to chemical free living
This vs that today is brought to you by my dry lips and nose!!!! Again this a product we use MULTIPLE times per day…lip balm or “chapstick”. Who else has multiple tubes floating all over the place?? Purse, bedside drawer, car, gym bag, diaper bag etc. Did you know that traditional chapstick actually makes lips… Continue reading This vs that…lip balm
Choose this NOT that…January I will be posting 1-2 products per day to swap out for cleaner and greener products. The first one is: DEODORANT! We use this EVERYDAY! And commercial deodorant is SOOOOO toxic..It is filled with parabens, triclosan, aluminum, fragrance, PG, and Silica AKA nothing safe! Your armpits contain lymph nodes (notice when… Continue reading Swap this for that…a non toxic journey to cleaner living
