My husband takes care of himself, he goes to the gym regularly and takes care of his skin. So one of the many things I love about my business is it’s a one-stop shop for my family. I used to go to several different stores to get what we needed. Now everything we need is at my fingertips and arrives at our doorstep. This is a great convenience for our family of five. But we still need to work on my husband telling me before his tube of shaving gel is empty...
About five years ago I started taking a closer look at our product labels because our boys were having reactions. I also took a closer look at the ingredients in my husband’s anti-perspirant because it wasn’t standing up against his long stressful days as a teacher. (In other words, he was a little stinky at the end of the day.) Fragrance and aluminium, just to name a few. The pesky thing about fragrance is it’s a catch-all word that can mask hundreds of unnamed ingredients which can mess with your hormones. Aluminium is in many anti-perspirants, but it’s a neuro-toxin which builds up in your system over time. It’s safest to avoid putting it under your arms in such a sensitive and absorbent area.
While one swipe of these products may not be a big deal, I’m concerned about my family’s toxic body burden, the building up of these toxins over time in our bodies.
So at my urging, my husband made the switch to an all natural deodorant and it totally stands the test of stressful day! He doesn’t come home smelling like a hard day, even though I know he’s had one.
Another must-have for him was cologne, especially on date nights. (Which, we so need to get back to regularly scheduling but anyway…) Since using his non-toxic skincare there is no need for cologne because the subtle scent of pure essential oils smell fresh and yummy.
Be sure to help the men in your life take a closer look at what they are using every day. They’re busy, want convenience, and like what they like, but what they don’t need are hormone disrupting toxins or carcinogens building up in their system. I want to live a good, healthy life with my husband and watch our three boys grow into men. I’m glad I can provide them all with safe products they use every day.
To help the men in your life take a closer look at what is absorbing into their bodies, compare their ingredient labels to this list. If you need help switching to safe products, I’m here for you and have already done the homework. Skip the struggle. Keeping your family healthy and saving your precious time is worth every penny.
