When you think about your skin as an organ, it is really crazy to consider soaking it with lotions loaded with chemical- this seeps right into ones blood stream, not to mention it dehydrates the skin.

Good point Regina made. Many deodorants are loaded with aluminum and can really have adverse affects.

Very interesting! It's not something I even thought about until lately. I'll have to watch the ingredients of my beauty supplies.

A natural moisturizer is so important this time of year. Really any seasonal change causes a change in your skins ph and it can easily dry out. The natural approach is so much more beneficial, thanks for carrying and promoting such products!

After suffering from acne and hyperpigmentation, I have become an ingredient reader. I threw away EVERY commercial product I had, my nose became as sensitive as my skin. Most commercial products are full of perfumes that my skin can't tolerate. I've found that shea butter works very well for my skin, arbutin and kojic acid are best for hyperpigmentation and I could go on and on...

Thanks for creating an all natural beauty care line. It was surprising hearing all the different chemicals that you should stay away from. Can't wait to try some!!!!

This information is very interesting. I never considered trying all natural makeup.

As I have gotten older, I have started considering quality instead of cost when it comes to my personal care products. It is true that natural products are often more costly than mass produced commercial ones. IMO, it's worth paying the $ if it means it is better for my skin, and I am not covering myself with harmful preservatives.

I'm hideously allergic to makeup and related products, no wonder! I'll definitely have to check into natural products, I've just been going au natural up to now :)

It is always great to learn more about the skin as a key organ. I believe in natural products esp in cosmetics. Preservatives are scary! Thanks for the great information.

Thanks for the info! I've started to read labels on almost everything. I'm glad we can go to stores like whole foods and not worry about what we are putting in or on our bodies. Keep up the good work!

Choosing healthy, natural products has become difficult (if not impossible) in other stores. It is nice to know that Whole Foods not only carries the most pure products, but continues to review and update them as new information becomes available. Thank you for making shopping for body products (and everything else you carry) easy again!

I wish natural products were less expensive! I do have a few things that are natural but I got them on sale. Thanks for the podcast!

I had no idea what I was putting on my face - definitely something to think about!

I agree with that saying too~What we put on our bodies is just as important what we put in them!

The podcast was interesting. However, I would like the prices of the natural products was more reasonable.

As I get older I'm definitely watching what I put into & on my body. I love being able to try new natural & organic products, it really makes me feel like I'm doing something healthy for myself. This podcast was amazingly informative, thanks for keeping women aware.

i've always thought natural makeup was just part of those trends but after this podcast, i should really save up for them...however, like everyone else said, natural makeup is waaay too expensive...

Its scary to think that what we put on our skin is absorbed into our body yet there's no required government testing for personal care products - which basically all go directly onto our skin! Thanks for this great podcast.
