Listener Questions (16:55)
1. We each share our individual beauty routines on a day-to-day basis.
Let us know what works for you!
Joy added a couple new products in her line up – Seaweed Bath Co. Shampoo & Conditioner – so far, so good!
2. How can you tell that the products you are choosing are free of chemicals and toxins that can harm your body? What should you look for? (31:12)
Make sure your products DO NOT have the following ingredients: • Parabens • Phthalates • Sulfates • Petrolatum • Proplene glycol • Butylene glycol • Acrylamide • Phenol • Formaldehyde • Heavy metals (aluminum, lead, etc) • Paraffin • Triclosan (antibacterial) • Surfactants (SLS, SLES, etc) • Chemical preservatives (ex. Sodium Benzoate) • Synthetic fragrances (stick with essential oils only) • No synthetic colors (yellow #5 - found in Philosophy products) • No animal testing (look for the cruelty free logo with the little bunny on the back) And of course, using the EWG’s Skin Deep app will help you evaluate products when you’re at the store with the scan feature!
3. How long do products last? (35:53)
4. What is your thoughts on natural deodorants (kinds you like and also how long is too long to wait for the “breaking in period” before maybe trying another natural brand? How long does the detoxing armpit take? (40:00)
Here’s a link to Joy’s article if you want to try an armpit detox yourself!
Dana and Kate chat about Dr. Mist which was recommended by one of our NTC Instructors!
5. I need a great nontoxic mascara option for my blonde eyelashes - I haven’t discovered one yet. They either do not provide dramatic coverage or they are not long wearing...I like a full feathery eye without resorting to Latisse or false lashes, if that make sense. I do not mind finding less toxic alternatives, but they have to work. (45:25)
Check out Lydia’s post with a HUGE list of natural mascara options!
