A Cacao-y Valentine’s Giveaway

Posted Feb 09 2010 7:31am


I write a “Healthy Living” blog and therefore try to practice what I preach by “living healthfully”.

When I started becoming interested in healthierorganic and just plain old good for you thingsI only made an effort with food.
It took me a while and lots of research/reading to realize that what you put ON your body is just as important as what you put IN your body.

A quote from Crazy Sexy Life on beauty product research…

…Many of the productsfrom body spray to shampoocontain parabensa chemical that acts like estrogen in the body. In allthe 18 body-care products used… contain roughly 200 synthetic chemicals that [they] are putting on their bodies each day before breakfast. This daily dose includes dozens of chemicals linked to cancerskin problemsallergies and hormone disruptionaccording to an analysis of a typical suite of these products on the Skin Deep database.

The Skin Deep database that they mention is The Environmental Working Group’s searchable database of toxic ingredients in cosmetic and personal care products. It is kind of crazy how many toxic ingredients we slather all over our bodiesfaces and heads without even a second thought. Check out the products you use and you will be astounded.


Wellwith all this in mindI have a very special treat for you. Remember when I wrote about my love for How Now Brown Cacao body dessert?
