Hello everyone! I thought I would take a quick moment to let everyone know that Healthy by Choice is now offering deoderant! I'm sure you have heard about the harmful chemicals that are in the store-bought deodorant, but if you haven't I will give you a little run down here:
According to Natural Cosmetic News:
Aluminum-based compounds are the active ingredients in antiperspirants. They
block the sweat glands to keep sweat from getting to the skin’s surface. Some
research has suggested that these aluminum compounds may be absorbed by the skin
and cause changes in estrogen receptors of breast cells. Because estrogen can
promote the growth of both cancer and non-cancer breast cells, some scientists
have suggested that using the aluminum-based compounds in antiperspirants may be
a risk factor for the development of breast cancer.
Studies have looked at aluminum content of breast tissue, and aluminum
absorption through the skin, but no clear link to breast cancer has been made.
Researchers continue to look at this possible breast cancer risk factor and more
studies are needed. (American Cancer Society)

There has always seemed to be people who say, "Why spend extra money on organic products? It is a waste of money". To some people this maybe true, but to many other people, organic products are the saving grace of our generation.
Often times when you hear people use the word "organic" you think of pricy fruits and vegetables. To be completely honest, organic products are more than just fruits and veggies, there is a whole other world out there to organic products. Basically organic products are products that are grown or raised without hormones, pesticides, or other artificial chemicals that reak havoc on our bodies.
In my opinion, it is best to start eating organic foods from the time you are young. It is best to pay the extra money now on healthy organic products than in health care later in life.
What are organic products? Organic products are, in my opinion, beauty products, cleaning products, and clothing. The beauty products, which I have a line of health & beauty products, are products that are made of completely organic ingredients. Such as, USDA Organic Oils, Beeswaxs, and essential oils to name a few. These products go right on your body's largest organ that is many times overlooked- your skin. Many people suffer from dry, cracked skin due to not enough hydration. You can help combat this by drinking a lot of water, fresh juice, and using organic products daily on your skin. EVERYTHING you put on your skin will be absorbed into your body in someway or another.
So treat your skin good! Give it some awesome organic products!
