Are you by any chance using one of those chemical-laden, disposable cleansing cloths like Olay? If so, please stop and check out this eco-alternative called Juicy Bamboo which has no harsh chemicals and is 100% biodegradable. Honestly guys, there are just way too many chemicals by-products that get added into beauty products these days which are known endocrine disruptors. This means they disrupt our female hormones leading to acne, fertility issues, PMS, and of course, female cancers. If you don’t believe me, read Not Just a Pretty Face.
Fortunately, I was contacted by Toronto-based Kaia Naturals that just launched a healthier alternative of of chemical-free, disposable skin cleansing cloths. Made from unbleached bamboo, they are entirely biodegradable, soaked in vitamins C, B12, E and 8 essential oils, and are pH balanced leaving your skin slightly acidic to keep out bacteria. Check out their store locator to find the easiest place to purchase them.
