Organic Lovers Want To Know About This!

 

Miessence Healthy Hair Pack

 

Calling for all organic lovers! I would like to introduce the Miessence Certified Organic Range for those who do not know and heard about this brand. I first discovered these wonderful products in early 2011 and they literally changed my life! There is no other products like it. To me, it’s one of the best brands that I have ever used and I have cherished every moment when I use these products. Just being so sure that I am doing myself a favor by not applying anything that is harmful to myself. At least I know that I am not being exposed to any toxic ingredients on a daily basis.

Did you know about this?

What happens to products that we put on our skin? Up to 60% of what goes on our skin goes directly into our bloodstream! So scary right? Even worse…up to 100%…when we put things around our sensitive areas! I definitely want to have that peace of mind that I am not harming my body in any way! Need to be careful with products that we use on ourselves and not trust what the media tells us!

Switch SkinCare Brands To A Certified Organic Brand

Have you thought about how safe your skincare products are? We use these products on a daily basis so I believe it is important to know what we are actually putting on our face every morning and night. If you don’t know what ingredients you are putting on your skin on a daily basis, then I recommend you to find out now rather than later.

There are some chemicals in personal care products that I would like to stay well away from. These include:

  • Parabens
    • Examples: methyl, ethyl, propyl, and butyl paraben
  • Ethoxylated ingredients (..eth)”
    • Examples: PEG, polyethylene, and any ingredient with ‘-eth’ in the name
  • Formaldehyde donating ingredients:
    • Examples: sodium hydroxymethylglycinate (suttocide), imidazolidinyly urea (Germall 115)
  • Nitrosamine Contaminants:
    • MEA (Monoethanolamine)
    • DEA (Diethanolamine)
    • TEA (Triethanolamine)
  • Synthetic Sunscreens:
    • Benzophenones
    • PABA/PABA esters
    • Cinnamates

Can Your Personal Care Products Cause Early Menopause?

What Is Menopause?

menopauseMenopause marks the end of a woman’s reproductive years. It is when the monthly period cycle stops completely! It is also a life changing time in a woman’s life.

Some menopause symptoms include irritability, hot flushes, vaginal dryness, aches and pains, and lack of self-esteem.

Menopause usually starts between 45 – 55 years of age. If it starts before 45, then it’s called early menopause. Any thing before 40, it’s called premature menopause.

Risks of Early Menopause

hot flushes aheadThe hormone responsible for reproduction is called estrogen. This hormone has other important functions too, such as regulate cholesterol, relax blood vessels, and prevent osteoporosis.

Women who go through early menopause may experience various health problems that may need medical attention. Whatever the reason, early menopause may contribute to dementia, depression, osteoporosis, and heart disease.

So they are usually prescribed hormone replacement therapies (HRT). 

Can toxic chemical ingredients from personal care products contribute to early menopause?

Did you know that what you apply on your skin will get absorbed and go directly into your blood stream. So if you are using products that contain harmful ingredients, then you are exposing yourself to those toxins, which can affect your health many years down the track.

There are some chemicals that will accumulate in your body, especially with repeated exposure. For example, lead is stored in the bone, cadmium in the liver and kidney, and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are stored in the fat.

According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), The average US woman uses 12 personal care products and/or cosmetics on a daily basis, which contains 168 different chemicals. While men, use less products in general.

The personal care and cosmetic industry is not regulated, so there is no guarantee that the products that we put on ourselves are safe. This is what the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have to say:

FDA regulation

Do you know that almost 13,000 chemicals are used in cosmetics, and only 11% have been evaluated for safety? Sounds appalling doesn’t it? If the personal care industry is not regulated, then shouldn’t we all be concerned? It’s no wonder people suffer from all kinds of health products, including early menopause.

Chemicals Linked To Early Menopause

chemicalsAccording to researchers at Washington University in St. Louis, they have identified 15 chemicals that may be linked to early menopause.

The study included 1442 women who had participated in a survey from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention from 1999 – 2008.

These women had gone through menopause and had been tested for levels of endocrine-disrupting chemicals.

Those 15 chemicals found from these women include pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and two phthalates in a group called DEHPs. Some of these chemicals are now banned, but may still be around in our environment.

For example, the last two phthalates are used for making plastics more flexible. Some common household items include shower curtains, garden hoses, and some toys.

The researchers indicated that women with the highest levels of these endocrine-disrupting chemicals were more likely to go through early menopause, but further research is needed to in this area. You can read more about this study HERE!

Benefits of choosing certified organic products

going organicCertified organic products are usually approved by a regulation body, such as ACO, once all those strict requirements have been met. This means that you are guaranteed that the product is free from pesticides, herbicides, GMOs, and other synthetic nasties.

Certified organic food and personal care products will have a logo, a logo that you can trust, and proof of their purity. Learn more about choosing organic HERE!

Since the personal care and cosmetic industry is not regulated, it is more reason to choose certified organic personal care products to protect yourself from harmful ingredients. Remember that products applied on your skin is absorbed into your blood stream. So if you can’t eat it, then why put it on your skin? Read more about the benefits of certified organic skin care HERE!

Conclusion

Menopause is a natural process that all women will go through at some stage in their life. But some people do experience menopause earlier than usual.

One of the many factors that may contribute to early menopause may be the chemicals that we expose ourselves to. These are the endocrine-disrupting chemicals that may be found in our personal care products that we use everyday and also our environment. It could also be the food that we are eating too.

So to protect your health and avoid harmful chemicals, choose certified organic personal care products and eat organic foods. 

Thanks for taking the time to read. What are your thoughts? Would you choose an organic lifestyle?

Should we avoid buying GMO foods?

What are GMO foods?

GMO appleGMO stands for genetically modified organisms. It means that the genetic code of a plant, animal or microorganism has been altered by scientists to give them special characteristics, traits or qualities that they don’t have naturally. 

How are GMOs made is when scientists take DNA from one species and inject it into another species in the laboratory, which we call trangenesis.

For example, the gene from a fish that lives in very cold seas has been inserted into a strawberry, allowing the fruit to be frost-tolerant.

GMO is not new. For plants, the major areas targeted for genetic improvement include herbicide, insect, and microbial disease resistance, and also improvement in product quality. The first genetically modified plant was produced in 1982, an antibiotic-resistant tobacco plant. This plant was modified for herbicide resistance (source)

There are pros and cons of GMO foods. Although there are advantages of creating GMO crops, we don’t really know whether consuming GMO foods are safe and healthy for us in the long run. So, the safety issue of consuming GMO foods is controversial.

In USA and Canada, GMO foods are not required to be labelled, so consumers don’t really know whether their food has been genetically modified. But in other countries, such as China, Australia and European Union, GMO foods are expected to be labelled (source).

GMO corn

Common GMO Foods

Some of the most common GMO foods include corn, soybean, rapeseed, honey, cotton, alfalfa, canola, sugar beets, rice, tomatos, potatoes and milk.

Safety Of GMO Foods

According to a Geneticist named David Suzuki, he said: 

“Any politician or scientist who tells you these products are safe is either very stupid or lying. The hazards of these foods are uncertain. In view of our enormous ignorance, the premature application of biotechnology is downright dangerous.”

In 1998, the USA Food and Drug Administration (FDA) admitted in court saying it has made “no dispositive scientific findings,” about the safety of genetically engineered foods…(source)

The FDA scientist has repeatedly warned that GMO foods can create unpredictable, hard-to-detect side effects, including allergies, toxins, new diseases, and nutritional problems. (source)  

chooseorganic & non-gmofoodIn fact, there’s not enough research performed on GMOs to make an informed decision on their safety.

But if people are concerned about their health and want to avoid eating GMO foods, then the best way is to choose organic foods and those that have been labelled as non-GMO.

The Best Organic Hand Wash

washing handsOne of the best foaming hand wash that I have used is an organic product from Miessence. I would like to share my experience about this organic foaming hand wash.

Before switching to a green, organic lifestyle, I have used other cheap brands that you buy from supermarkets. They are usually full of chemicals as expected.

But when I started using the Miessence certified organic products, I not only fell in love with the products, but I thought that their hand wash was so convenient and affordable.

I have been using the Miessence hand wash product for 4 years now and am not stopping there. Just love it. Their hand wash concentrate is made up of certified organic ingredients, which doesn’t harm the environment and ourselves.

Their ingredients include certified organic aloe vera leaf juice, coco glucoside, certified organic lemon myrtle essential oil, organic glycerin, non GMO xantham gum, and citric acid. 

Miessence Hand Wash ConcentrateFor a 250ml bottle of hand wash concentrate, it can last 10 times. People simply use 25ml of the concentrate and fill it up with water to make a 250ml fresh batch of hand soap in the refillable foaming soap dispenser. 

So for loyal customers like myself, I pay $AU 63.16 for a bottle of hand soap concentrate. So every time I make up a fresh batch of hand soap, it would only cost me $6.31.

This is quite affordable for an organic hand wash with no harmful chemicals and would last for a while. Some of those ready prepared hand soaps that you find in health shops can cost perhaps $10 or more.

Miessence has recently improved their formula and have a new ceramic foaming soap dispenser available for people to purchase. So with their new and improved formula, people can use 50ml of the concentrate to make a 300ml batch of hand wash. The hand concentrate can be used up to 5 times, but it will still last for a long time.

I really love it that they are making improvements to their products. 

For those who would like to try out this fantastic hand wash, they have a special offer available for a limited time this month (until 8th July 2015). So you buy 2 hand wash concentrates, and receive the foaming hand soap dispenser for FREE! Before you check out, just remember to include the promo code: foaming.

Miessence products can be purchases via my website at www.teresaorganics.com
