Recently I was lucky enough to attend the Real Food Revolution event, held at the Crowne Plaza in Surfers Paradise.
This was an amazing opportunity to open my mind up to some new health and wellness information; and gosh, there is SO much to learn!
One presentation that really struck a cord with me was Therese Kerr‘s speech on organic beauty products.
It is hard to imagine that beauty or self-care products could be poisonous, particularly when the label refers to “organic”, “pure” or “safe”. The reality is that unless you read the ingredient label, understand organic certification and consider the packaging you really don’t know what you are putting on your skin and in your body by way of absorption through the skin.
You can absorb MORE toxins from personal, skin and hair care products than you can absorb from your food!
Our skin is said to absorb chemicals up to 10 times faster than by way of ingestion and that is because our skin simply doesn’t have the digestive enzymes to break down the chemicals that our digestive system has available to it. The average woman puts over 200+ chemicals a day on her skin, of which 65-70% is being absorbed by the body… yuckie! The Divine by Therese Kerr range of natural products are certified by Australia’s most stringent certification body, The ACO, and are also Australian made.
Therese recommended using an app called “The Chemical Maze”, so that you can look into what precisely is within your products. Nowadays before I purchase any products I am sure to check the ingredient list and look each chemical up to see if it is naturally derived, and safe to use.
I sampled almost the entire range of Divine products at the Real Food Revolution and loved them! I kept going back for more of the Aloe Vera, Chamomile & Lavender Baby Moisturiser – it was so luxurious and the smell was amazing. Who’s to say I can’t have baby soft skin! 😛
Until Sunday 26th July you can claim a $25 gift voucher with the code “BLESSING”. What a great opportunity to treat yourself to a product that will love you back. I had to share this awesome shopping opportunity with you!
