As a dietitian who specializes in functional nutrition, I encourage my clients to not only change they way they look at food, but also examine their lifestyle to make healthy changes. We are now well aware that what we put on our skin is absorbed into the bloodstream (think nicotine patches, topical hormone creams, etc). So how does changing your soap affect your health?
So let's talk about the liver. Why the liver? Well, the liver performs over 500 functions in the body. One job is to detoxify and purify. Stress comes in the form of processed food, refined sugar and grains, emotional states, and pollution from chemicals in body care products, cleaning products, and medications. These stressors often compound, overwhelming the liver. When congestion occurs, the immune system is compromised, the delicate hormone balance is weakened, the digestive system doesn't work as well, and metabolism will slow down. More toxins means more weight to carry around. Fat tissue surrounds toxins as a protective mechanism. Skin issues such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea are some of the ways our body tries to rid of these toxins.
Our soaps not only have gentle ingredients to help manage skin conditions topically, but is also one component to help at the root of the problem by minimzing the chemical burden your liver must detoxify. Oh.. and let's all take a moment to thank our liver.
Your soap will be packaged with a label made out of recycled seeded paper. Cover the seeded paper label with soil. Place in a sunny spot and watch grow! All seeds are non-GMO. To preserve the life of your handmade soap, I recommend using a soap dish and keeping soap out of direct stream of water.
