I’m really excited to have linked up with Neal’s Yard Organic Remedies HERE!
All Neal’s Yard products are organic and free from chemical nasties and most are also gluten-free.
It’s ironic and I think pretty crazy, that so many beauty products are full of chemicals and ingredients that can cause so much harm but we happily put them on our scalps and skin, the biggest organ of our body that quickly absorbs ingredients in to our blood stream.
The increase in illnesses such as eczema, allergies and even cancers over the last 50 years has been directly linked to this rise in chemical exposure. For more info see links below.
Many of the substances used in make up, hair and facial produces are also used in industrial manufacturing to clean industrial equipment, stabilize pesticides and grease gears.
It’s a no brainer that an ingredient that effectively cleans a garage floor may is not what you want to be putting on your face every day.
Using Neal’s Yard products has been a god send for me. I have struggled to find beauty products that don’t contain toxins such as Parabens and Phthalates and gluten.
This is what you won’t find in Neal’s Yard products:
No synthetic fragrances – many contain chemicals that are harmful to health
No silicones – they coat skin, and impede its natural function
No mineral oils – derived from petroleum, and have a tendency to block the skin
No parabens – these are linked to hormonal imbalances
No GM ingredients – not enough is known about possible long-term implications
No phthalates – it’s reported they have toxic impact on humans and animal life
No propylene glycol – derived from petroleum
No animal testing – unnecessary and cruel
No DEA – associated with known carcinogens
No EDTA – (powerful metal chelator), and doesn’t biodegrade readily
No acrylates – derived from petroleum
No nano – not enough is known about its long term implications
No BHT – linked to breathing and lung impairment
No Gluten*- associated with Celiac disease, gut and immune disorders
* with the exception of a few items listed below.
All Neal’s Yard product ingredients are organic, use sustainable products and packaging, are not tested on animals and help empower people to live healthier happier lives.
Neal’s Yard Remedies also sell an excellent range of supplements formulated by experts in natural health and nutrition to encourage optimal health, vitality and beauty, for all.
I can highly recommend their Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and the Healing Foods book has been a great source of inspiration. But there are so many thousands of products… to enjoy why not have a look here.
