How many times have you returned or thrown away a bottle of skin care you bought and did not like? I cannot even count how many lines of skin care I have tried. My skin is sensitive, and I must read every label to make sure there is not wheat, dairy or sugar, and this is a lot of work that take up huge amounts of time. Wheat protein and milk protein are often in soap, lotion, shampoo and conditioner! Go get your bottles of shampoo/soap etc…and read the labels.
Did you know that your skin is your largest organ? Yes, it is. And, did you know that anything you put on it (soap, cleanser, lotion, sunscreen etc…) all is immediately absorbed directly into your bloodstream? YES! So, if you are making a big effort to avoid particular foods, then be sure you are not defeating that purpose by putting it into your blood via your skin or scalp! Whether these ingredients are in your food or on your skin can cause either an immune or histamine reaction which can diminish your health.
I suffered for many years with eating foods I was allergic to and did not understand why I had a stomach-ache and congestion everyday and occasional hives! This has done a lot of damage to my gut which is the center of health, and it take a long time to reverse the damage. You do not need to suffer or cause damage to your body, mind or spirit any longer.
Are you familiar with the Environmental Working Group*? You can look up ingredients and they will give you the information about it-it is scary and criminal in my opinion what it put into products. Did you know that the UK and EU have higher standards in their skin care? Yes, in fact the EU has banned/outlawed 11,000 chemicals/ingredients from skin care and the US has only banned 11! You choose. That said, there are terrific companies in the US that are very good and do not use anything bad, and they are hard to find.
I have done so much searching and have finally found a line that I love and hope you will too! I have taken the time to read labels and use myself as a guinea pig for all of you! I have been using this skin care for a few months and love it. With the exception of a few products it is wheat free. The lip balm has wheat germ and the Rose&Mallow Moisturizer has Triticum vulgare germ oil which is wheat germ oil!
I was never interested in selling skin care or anything else besides my cookbook, but I love this so much and want to offer additional solutions to your problems to make your life healthier and happier. This company uses essential oils, so it also lifts your mood and gives you a dose of aromatherapy! If you are sensitive to smells, the new Starfruit line is unscented!
This is not a multi-level marketing company, but it is like Avon in that anyone can sell it and make a commission on the sales and not on signing people up to sell it. I am not interested in signing anyone up unless they really want to do it and ask me. I am interested in offering everyone organic skin care line, with EU standards, that is in line with a diet without wheat, dairy or sugar! And, I want to save you time and money; and make a little money so I can continue to do research and keep helping you.
This company is also very eco-friendly and has a zero carbon footprint! I love the blue glass bottles and recycled plastic bottles. May you be happy and healthy on the inside and out! If you are looking for skin care that is free of EDTA, Mineral Oil/Petroleum, Synthetic Fragrances and Colors, Parabens, Silicones and Phthalates then, check this line out! Many of these ingredients have been linked to cancer!
