Did you know that there are 85,000 chemicals on the market today but only about 200 of them have been tested for the long-term effects that they have on human health? What’s even crazier to me is that most of the products are marketed towards families with young kids. When using these products, they leave a film on surfaces and fumes in the air we breath. This can cause things like, asthma, skin irritations, eczema, respiratory problems, even long term effects like cancer.
Not only do we need to be aware of the cleaning products we use in our home, but also food and personal products that we use on ourselves and our kids. Products like lotions, body wash and soap, deodorant, makeup, shampoos. I never realized the dangers some of the ingredients in these products have. It’s so important to read labels and educate ourselves and others that there are alternative products we can use that are efficient and safe.
The Smity Life was created for a way for me to expand my mission, to create awareness of the harmful chemicals we are exposed to in our every day lives. I became a Norwex Independent Consultant in 2014 shortly after I first learned about this amazing company and the products they offer. Since I was completely unaware of how many products we use every day that contain harmful chemicals, this has been a HUGE eye opener.
I have 2 young girls and I want to raise them in the most safe environment possible. It can be so overwhelming when you begin to think about it all but you can start with one thing at a time. One small change can make a HUGE difference!
These are just a few suggestions to reduce chemicals in your home. You don’ t have to change everything at once, just one thing at a time and be more aware of the products you are using. Even if I create a Safe Haven one home at a time, my mission will be fulfilled! 🙂
