Hey folks, summer is upon us. Make sure you are reading ingredients on your sunscreen! Not only are these chemicals found in the blood stream much later, but they are harmful to wildlife. There are safer alternatives out there... what are some of your favorite non-toxic sunscreens?

Some sunscreen ingredients are linked to negative health impacts. Read labels, and avoid these ingredients.

There's nothing better than the sweet fragrance of Lavender!

This is an interesting article by "Mamavation." They have updated their list which discusses the safety of ingredients in direct sales products.
I am proud and happy to see that NYR falls under "Best" for beauty products because of safety and transparency of ingredients.
Check out the article and have some food for thought...

It's so important to learn to read labels on your skin care and cosmetics!

Your favorite lotion or shampoo or bubble bath might smell great, but did you know that dozens – even hundreds -- of chemicals could be hiding behind the word “fragrance” on their product labels? In our latest report, BCPP reveals 75% of the chemicals linked to⚠️cancer, reproductive harm and other chronic health effects⚠️detected in the beauty and personal care products we tested were hidden fragrance chemicals.

Learn more about what we found and how YOU can take action: https://www.bcpp.org/resource/right-to-know-exposing-toxic-fragrance-chemicals-report/

The start of school is quickly approaching and with that, so is the purchase of school supplies. As a mom of little ones, I'm always looking to make sure my childrens' toys and supplies are non-toxic. This is why I thought this news article was too important not to share with other moms and dads.

Scary! There are so many alternatives out there. Try using organic cotton feminine products.

From undisclosed fragrance chemicals linked to skin irritation, to pesticide residues —dioxins & furans linked to cancer, hormone disruption, and reproductive toxicity —navigating the feminine care aisle can be a challenge. MADE SAFE makes it easy. Look for the MADE SAFE Seal.

Anyone have a good, safe cleaning product recommendations?!

Yuck! Try glass or metal or look for "BPA Free"

Today’s is BPA. BPA is an endocrine disrupting chemical, meaning it can interfere with hormone levels and hormonal communication.

Particularly, BPA impacts estrogen receptors in the body, and exposure to it is linked to inflammation, ovarian and breast diseases, female and male infertility, early puberty, breast cancer, childhood neurological disorders, and more.

MADE SAFE has certified products that make it easier for you to avoid BPA altogether. True Botanicals is packaged in glass. Bioserie offers MADE SAFE Certified teethers and toys made from plants. Natracare’s entire line is plastic-free, and Pura Stainless offers stainless steel bottles that are 100% plastic-free.

This is really important! Even many companies that claim to be organic, use these in their skin care products. Read your labels!

Vitamin A & Retinol Derivatives are the focus of today’s ! https://madesafe.org/science/hazard-list/vitamin-a-retinol-derivatives/

07/08/2018

This is a great list to keep an eye out for in your personal care products! Look for the Made Safe certification!

Check out our new Hazard List™, released today, a comprehensive, scientific list of ingredients and classes of ingredients that aren’t permitted in any MADE SAFE certified product. Here are the worst offenders across product categories. bit.ly/hazardlist

With 300+ scientific citations plus, reflecting three years of MADE SAFE screening and the use of ingredients found in real-time within products on store shelves, our Hazard List is a great guide for common toxic chemicals in products found on store shelves and in your home.

It’s also a short-cut to knowing more about what IS NOT included in any of our certified products no matter the brand, type of product, or where it’s sold.

After all, as we like to say: better MADE SAFE than sorry. bit.ly/hazardlist

More chemicals to avoid!

This week’s is titanium dioxide. It is often used as a pigment, brightener, and opacifier, which is an ingredient that makes a formulation more opaque.

When inhaled, titanium dioxide is considered possibly carcinogenic to humans.

For example, products that contain powdered titanium dioxide like loose powders, pressed powders, eyeshadows, and blushes in which the makeup is in powder form, where titanium dioxide can be inhaled.

It's that time of year, almost! Organic gardening tips!!

Spring weather is just around the corner!

Our gardener Fraser, has shared his top tips for going organic in the garden:

1. Use Soil Association approved compost bags, seeding and plants – or at least spray-free!
2. Try using a garlic or chilli spray as a natural insect repellent.
3. Companion planting can be mutually beneficial. For example, the scent of thyme deters black flies from roses!
