I expect you don’t because I never use to.

The fancy lotions and potions on tv promise to clear up your skin and produce amazing results but what’s really in the face creams and scrubs you use.

As the cosmetics industry is pretty much unregulated, companies are able to put in all sorts of nasty chemicals without us knowing it.

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics has discovered that the product St. Ives Gentle Apricot Scrub contains a chemical linked to cancer.

And Clearasil Gentle Cleansing Wipes have a chemical in them that shouldn’t even be used on damaged skin, and if you’ve ever used Clearasil you’ll know it’s a very harsh product anyway.

So why are we being subjected to these harmful personal care products?

Well the answer is you don’t have to be. If you choose to go organic and natural then you can be assured you won’t find any of these nasties.

But do make sure that the cosmetics you use are natural because some brands can be misleading.

Here at theorganicsalon.com we only provide purely organic and natural beauty products, because we believe in putting only good things in to your bodies, no rubbish.

God's PharmacyI received this article in my inbox today and found it quite amusing as well as being strangely accurate, so I thought I’d share it with you all:

God’s Pharmacy – The idea that God left us clues about what fruit and veg help which part of the body:

A sliced Carrot – It looks like a human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye… and YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes. In other words they help you see in the dark!

Tomatoes – They have four chambers and are red just like the heart. All research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food.

Grapes – They hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood food.

Walnuts – They look like a little brain. And as we now know walnuts help develop more than three dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.

Celery – It looks just like bones, and this food specifically targets bone strength.

Avocadoes – Target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female – they look just like these organs. Today’s research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers.

Figs – They’re full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.

Sweet Potatoes – It looks like the pancreas and actually balances the glycemic index of diabetics.

Olives – Assist the health and function of the ovaries.

Onions – look like the body’s cells. Today’s research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes.

Weird huh!!

And of course all this fruit and veg is best when it’s Organic!

Pregnant women have been warned to stop using perfumes or scented body creams, after research has shown the products may cause unborn boys to suffer infertility or cancer later in life.

Quite a statement right!

Well the research carried out by Richard Sharpe found that the reproductive system of male foetuses can be harmed as early as at eight weeks, due to chemicals found in many cosmetic brands.

Mr Sharpe said: ‘Women could stop using body creams and perfumes. Although we do not have conclusive evidence that they do harm, there are components about which there are question marks; for example it could be certain combinations of chemicals. If you are thinking about how a baby might be exposed, that’s one way, and it’s something positive you can do. It might have no consequence, but it’s something positive women can do for their baby.’

But campaigners are urging women not to panic over the suggestion of using perfume and scented products until further studies are carried out.

Theorganicsalon.com only retails personal care products that are completely natural and free from harmful chemicals, so you can use them without worrying!

A Wise Women Speaker Event is being held next week in London.

Next Tuesday 9th September 2008, two speakers in the world of organics Helen Lynn and Abi Weeds are holding an event to talk about Chemicals, Cosmetics, You & the Environment. 

And considering our bodies soak up 60% of the products we put on our skin, it is important we learn what is put in them and what the natural alternatives are.

The evening is being held from 6.30pm till 8.30pm at The Hub 5 on Torrens Street, London.

Posted in: Eczema,Skin Problems by Katie @ 2:27 pm

Eczema is the name that is given to a broad clinical variety of common, itchy inflammatory skin diseases. It can range from redness to a profusion of signs with blistering, weeping and crusting or thickened pigmented areas of skin with scaling.

It involves both the dermis and epidermis layer of the skin some cases of atopic eczema can itch severely, some moderately and some not at all. Eczematous skin completely reverts to normal on healing. 

In the UK up to 1/5 of school children and 1 in 12 adults suffer from Eczema.

So what is the cause?

The causes of Eczema are many and varied and differ from person to person. It is thought that the tendency the environment and what we consume can affect Eczema for example caffeine, alcohol, food, pesticides, pollen, dust, certain plants, animal fur, food additives, drugs, industrial and chemicals irritants such as products like shampoos and detergents which contain certain chemicals.

Theorganicsalon.com believes that these harmful chemicals can be avoided by using the right products. All the personal care products available at theorganicsalon are free from these chemicals and are completely natural.
