When you’re putting something on your face every day, you want to be careful. Makeup is meant to enhance your natural beauty, so shouldn’t it be natural too?

Did you know that your skin absorbs 60% of what you put on it? What do you want to absorb, natural products or toxic chemicals? Here are the top ingredients to avoid when it comes to your makeup:

WHAT’S IN YOUR NATURAL MOISTURIZER?

WHAT’S IN YOUR NATURAL MOISTURIZER?

Everyone has a go-to moisturizer that they love and for some of us, we found it right away, for others it was a test of trial and error. But whatever moisturizer you are using, and regardless of if you are in love with it or not, like a bad boyfriend, it might be doing you more harm than good. And those claims of being natural? Well they might be as fantasy as superman, but no-one really tried to tell us that superman was real, right? (even though it would be great if he was…)

Toxic-Free Dishwashing

Toxic-Free Dishwashing

Do you want to eat chemicals off your plate? Neither do we!

What many people don’t realise is that this is what we do when we wash our dishes with conventional soap. Yes, it is so deceiving what is sold to us – the whole Green Marketing and Greenwashing is a dangerous movement to be caught in.

We often fall for the terms NATURAL or ORGANIC and for those earthy colours and natural pictures on the bottle. But if you turn over to the label, sadly it often lists toxic ingredients.

Therapeutic Playdough

Therapeutic Playdough

As my little boy is getting older, he is also becoming more curious while being on a constant discovery tour. At 14 months, he is in the full stage of exploring every texture, form, shape as well a every cause and effect (and yes, there have been head bumps and fingers stuck in doors). But I knew I needed to diversify his playtime with not only toys and books, but things that he can touch, squeeze, mould and throw – to see that effect.

So I set out to make some play dough for him. As it was always daddy’s favourite thing to play with as a child, I knew I would please both of my boys at home. I didn’t want to just buy Play-Do at a toy store, knowing it still contains toxic ingredients and well aware that it will land in my little ones mouth at one point. So, I researched and was overwhelmed with the number of natural recipes. I chose one that sounded promising and easy to make and gave it a go.
