It's been far too long...

I have been neglecting this blog! A lot has happened in the past five months i guess. But after a stern talking to from a new friend in London, I am resuming activity on this blog. There's certainly plenty to blog about. I've got a bunch of products to write about, but first is the latest about ingredient safety.

In March a study was conducted on many products (check out the list as you may be using some) to test for 1,4 Dioxane. This is not an added or listed ingredient in products. Rather, it is a nasty by-product in the making of certain ingredients that are frequently used in products (even in many "natural" products). Check out the link below for all the details:

If you use products that don't include synthetics and stick to whole botanical and food-grade products, you won't need to worry about 1,4 Dioxane.

To make the switch, check out GratefulBody, Allaffia, Dr. Bronners, and Greenridge Herbals.
