Let me ask you this beauties? Are you ready to take the next step in the journey?

When I look back on my own journey, there is another side to detoxing that’s not just your food choices.

After all, being a conscious beauty is as much about what you put on your skin as the toxins that surround you every day. Whether they be found in your food, your household cleaners or your beauty products.

Unfortunately, our exposure to chemicals and toxins is much more prolific that we are often made aware of, because glamorous marketing has us believing we need something while concealing the real truth about what’s inside. Don’t fear beauties, we are not here for a chemistry or marketing lesson, instead let us look together at what is involved in a typical cupboard detox.

My husband and I, were chatting and listening to Triple J radio when suddenly my little ears pricked up.

The particular radio story that caught my attention was acknowledging the recent visit by Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands.

Basics of Green Beauty – Tip Five Say No To DEA and TEA

DEA and TEA

We have reached Tip Five now in our series, and while researching and reading through my green beauty Bibles I stumbled upon and interesting thought.

Why is it that there is so much written about the potential dangers of these chemicals, yet are there so little tests done on humans?
