I used to be one of those people who thought organic products were “fussy” and extra.
But that changed when my dad opened an organic creamery and David worked there for 8 years – we learned a lot about the realities of toxins and deceptive practices in mainstream products.
As more and more people have realized the harmful affects of these products in their bodies, natural and organic ingredients have become more and more on trend.
The problem is, there’s not a ton of regulation for many products, which has lead to “greenwashing” being added to the long list of deceptive marketing practices companies use to lure in innocent customers. Greenwashing is the use of terms like “natural”, “all-natural”, etc. to give the impression of better quality, healthier-for-you merchandise, even when nothing (or very little) about the product is necessarily better.
Some stuff we use is easy to replace with natural alternatives, but other things, like skincare products and makeup especially, are a lot harder without taking the time to educate ourselves on all the very-difficult-to-pronounce ingredients……….. and that is just kind of a big pain in the butt, honestly.
My friend, Carmen, who I grew up with and with whom I have too many cringe-worthy stories (LOL) recently introduced me to Keep Me Safe Organics™ and gave me the chance to try out some of their products. I especially love their moisturizer, which is included in the Daily Essentials bundle she’s giving away in this post (below)!
I asked her to share a bit about her experience with Keep Me Safe Organics™ and why she trusts them for her family.
