Let me introduce you to Nourished Life, your one-stop toxin-free shop. The company was founded in 2012 by Irene Falcone after her health deteriorated from toxic levels of chemical exposure. Read more about Irene’s story here.
So why Nourished Life? As you may know, many traditional product brands contain chemicals such as triclosan, parabens, and sodium laureth sulfate (SLS) which can not be supported by scientific research as safe for long term human use. Much of the current research puts these chemicals in the class of ‘endocrine disruptors‘, which may contribute to liver burden, thyroid dysfunction, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), infertility and even cancer.
So here’s what you can do:
- Make the gradual change from commercial, toxin-laden products. You don’t have to throw everything away if you don’t want to, but as you run out of your standard brand/s, make the switch to a product from Nourished Life. Irene has done the research for us, and every product on Nourished Life is the very best in toxin-free.
- Start with what goes on your skin, such as moisturiser and foundation, as this is your largest organ. Over 60% of topical products are absorbed directly into your bloodstream.
- Prioritise what you use daily, including cleaning products and hair care.
- Fill up your virtual shopping trolley here: http://www.nourishedlife.com.au. You’ll get free shipping for orders over $100.
