I love the product so much, I use it confidently everyday.
I say confidently because I know that I am actually feeding my skin nutrients…period.! No chemicals, no additives, just good stuff.
Here are some juicy tidbits to consider…
Did you know:
  • Most women absorb up to 2 kilograms of chemicals through their skin from their toiletries and cosmetics over the course of a year!
  • The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health found that  884 chemicals used in personal care products and cosmetics were toxic!
Those are troublesome stats. 

At this seminar you will learn how to find skin care products and cosmetics made without the plastics, silicones, petroleum, artificial fragrances, dyes, and other unsafe ingredients found in most beauty products.

Let me introduce you to the Presenters:

Although it will probably take years before science finds these answers, this discovery offers hope for the future.

In the meantime, there  is one care facility making headlines by letting love and respect for the elderly rule their care giving.

Each Alzheimer’s patient is given the freedom to eat, bath, sleep and even eat as much chocolate as he or she wants.  A little ‘schnaps’ before bedtime is also given, if that is what brings comfort.

I have a family member in a care home, and several friends who have a member disabled by Alzheimer’s disease.  I applaud this way of caring for the elderly.

Here’s what happened to one 96 year old  Alzheimer’s patient in Beatitudes care home, when they decided to break the rules and let her have what she wanted …Read more…
