Naturopath Approved Hair, Skin & Body Care Products

Practising as a Naturopath, it is evident the dangerous impact toxins cause on the health of the body. As the elimination organs become stressed, this can lead to many health conditions including hormonal imbalances such as Oestrogen dominance. The skin is your largest organ therefore many of these toxins are sourced from substances which absorb into your system, via the skin.

Consuming a nutritious diet of predominantly organic produce is one of my top values. I also take care of what I expose myself to through any products used on my hair, skin, nails and teeth- avoiding dangerous chemicals and using products containing healing properties of natures medicine. 

Over the years I have experimented with many new natural beauty products on the market and can finally say I have a number of products I am happy to use and rotate between on a regular basis. It is important to know what you are using is free from harmful phthalates, parabens and sodium lauryl sulphate.

Specific nasties to watch out for on labels, include:

  • Abbreviations: PEG, PPG, MEA, DEA, TEA, BHA, BHT, DMDM, D&C, FD&C
  • ‘eth’ ingredients: oleth, cateareth, laureate, steareth
  • Parabens: ethyl paraben, methyl paraben, proply paraben, butyl paraben
  • Fragrance: fragrance, parfum, perfume
  • Ingredients ending in: oxynal, polysorbate, methicone
  • Synthetic alcohols: benzyl, butyl, isopropyl, myristyl, propyl
  • Vegetable wax, emulsifying wax
  • Others: mineral oil, petrolatum, petroleum jelly, paraffin, butylene glycol, imadazolidinyl urea, coco beatine, propylene glycol
