EXTRA, EXTRA! Read all about it….All natural, toxic-free and organic make-up!

Mommy’s Club and Living Nature partner up for a first of its kind venture! Living_Nature me We are at it again!  When was the last time your skin felt natural, clean and refreshed EVEN WITH MAKE-UP on?  Well, I am here to tell you if you cannot think that far back, start thinking forward because we are launching our latest partnership with Living Nature, who for the past 27 years has led the world in natural, safe, and effective skin products. When you realize the average woman using synthetic skincare and makeup products applies around 168 chemicals to her skin each day, AND that your skin is the body’s biggest organ, it begins to make perfect sense to take great care to make the best skin care and beauty choices you can. Living Nature was founded on the principles of creating safe, effective, best natural skincare that actually helps retain skin health and overall physical well being, rather than risking skin irritation and a host of other potential health problems now widely recognized as being attributable to the known carcinogens, neurotoxins and endocrine disruptors commonly found in synthetic (and many pseudo-natural) product ranges. For many of us, our lives have moved so far away from nature, we have lost something of our intrinsic connection to what’s naturally good for us. Living Nature natural skin care and beauty is a way to find your way back. (PSSSS- how many of you can say that about your current make up…do some research) Here is some information about the ingredients they use in their products…

“We use some of the world’s most remarkable ingredients, but what we leave out is just as important. We have a very simple mantra: if there’s any question about an ingredient’s safety, we simply will not use it.

In Living Nature products you’ll find no:

  • Endocrine disrupting synthetic preservatives such as:
    • Parabens
    • Ethelhexyglycerin
    • Hydroxymethylglycinate
    • Iodopropynyl butylcarbamate
    • Methylchloroisothiazolinone
    • Methylisothiazolinone
    • Unigerm
    • Suttocide
  • Neurotoxic preservatives like phenoxyethanol
  • Harsh surfactants like sodium, ammonium and lauryl/laurethsulphates
  • Petrochemicals, including PEGs, paraffin and other glycols
  • Silicones, Mineral oils, artificial fragrances, grain alcohols
  • Phthalates
  • Bisphenol-A (BPA)
  • Genetically modified or irradiated ingredients

“At Living Nature we are firmly committed to 100% natural skincare, free from any potentially harmful synthetic preservatives (such as parabens or phenoxyethanol). While many companies may claim that only small amounts of these synthetic chemicals are used, increasing research is demonstrating that it is the cumulative effect of these substances in the body that cause long-term harmful health effects.*”

“Living Nature products are naturally preserved, with a shelf-life of 2 years for our skin care (some cosmetics and Oils have a longer shelf-life). Many unique New Zealand ingredients have strong antimicrobial properties, and its the combination of these powerful, natural ingredients which we have used to preserve each product. The result: perfectly preserved, beautifully fragranced, 100% natural products.”

“Product purity is ensured by the stringent hygiene protocols of our Kerikeri factory – where we control every step of product development, formulation, testing and filling. Our unique packaging is also specifically designed to protect the contents from external contamination and contact with air.”

“We tell the truth about our ingredients, products and manufacturing because we have nothing to hide.”

*The 2010 President’s Cancer Panel Report ‘Environmental Causes of Cancer: What We Can Do Now’  is one of the most comprehensive independent reviews of the impact of toxins in personal care, and in the environment, on our health. But saying ‘all natural’ is one thing. Backing it up is another.
