At this time we’ve got Karen, the founding father of Ok’pure on the weblog. You guys have most likely seen or heard Lauryn LOVING her Settle Down spray for years. She is simply obsessive about this tremendous clear model.
We’re so excited that Karen is right here to speak about why pure merchandise are key. Not solely is she a badass entrepreneur, she’s a mother. So she actually will get that folks don’t need to put shit on their child’s pores and skin (or their very own for that matter).
Let’s get proper into it. (& keep tuned for a particular code on the finish of the publish).
When my third son (I’ve three sons and a daughter) was a new child, he was discovered to have excessive ranges of aluminum and parabens (plastics) in his system. Seems, what I used to be placing on my physique with deodorants and physique lotions was coming into my system and in flip, his breast milk. That day, I researched home made deodorant recipes and stored a bowl of baking soda combined with coconut oil underneath my toilet sink.
Quick ahead six years: I owned a small health studio for ladies and I made some lip balm and physique scrub as promotional gadgets for the gymnasium. These gadgets had been seen by the ladies on the studio and realizing I used to be additionally making my very own deodorant, they requested merchandise for themselves. They turned out to be the most effective take a look at marketplace for my deodorant and the merchandise developed into what’s now Ok’pure Naturals. Now not making the merchandise in my kitchen, you could find us on-line and in over 300 retail shops throughout North America!
I’ve discovered rather a lot within the twelve years since I first made clear merchandise for myself and my household. Right here’s what retains me utilizing and producing merchandise containing naturally-derived substances and important oils.
Why Important Oils & Pure Merchandise Are Key:
♡ What you set in your physique is simply as vital as what you set in your physique.
Our pores and skin is our largest organ and it’ll soak up the entire substances we apply. This implies skincare, physique lotion, deodorant and sure, even make-up!
Do you know: the common lady consumes 4 to 9 kilos of lipstick/lip balm in her lifetime?
♡ Recognizing and having the ability to pronounce the substances in your skincare retains you accountable for what enters your physique.
Be taught to learn the lists in your merchandise. It’s possible you’ll be shocked at what number of chemical compounds and fillers are in your favorite merchandise.
Do you know: the time period “pure” shouldn’t be regulated, which is one more reason to be an advocate for your self and taking the time to learn ingredient lists to acknowledge them.
♡ Utilizing pure important oils as a substitute of synthetic perfume not solely prevents undesirable complications and attainable well being points, they only scent higher!
Be taught to correctly dilute important oils when diffusing at house, and at all times test ingredient lists for unnatural fragrances, particularly people who include phthalates and parabens.
Do you know: you’ll want the peels from 25 giant oranges to make a teaspoon of orange important oil. Orange important oil is among the finest smelling oils in my view, and one of the cheap to purchase. Keep in mind, regardless of how good they scent, by no means ingest oils.
♡ Clear, pure substances might be simply as efficient, if no more efficient, than artificial substances.
In the case of caring for your pores and skin, an extended listing of substances doesn’t assure higher outcomes. Suppose natural shea butter, natural calendula oil (we infuse our personal calendula petals into natural oil for extremely hydration and pores and skin therapeutic) and candy almond oil for moisturizing pores and skin head to toe.
Do you know: a great tip is to use a beneficiant layer of your favorite plant-based moisturizer or balm (I exploit our Repair It restore balm) to dry heels and ft earlier than mattress. Cowl with a pair of cotton socks to lock in moisture, and to maintain your sheets clear, and get up to easy, hydrated ft! The identical might be finished on dry arms, utilizing a pair of cotton gloves.
♡ Pure merchandise are typically higher for the surroundings than artificial merchandise.
The nearer the substances are to their pure state, the higher they are going to be accepted again into the surroundings. Issues like nut butters and oils will likely be absorbed again into the earth, the place the method of producing and disposing of substances like parabens and phthalates, will trigger hurt to mom nature.
Do you know: ok’pure doesn’t use outer packaging with any of our merchandise as an extra step to cut back pointless waste.
♡ Clear substances and most pure skincare will not be examined on animals.
All the time test that the model you’re supporting is cruelty-free, however when the merchandise include solely clear, pure substances, you’ll be able to really feel assured realizing that animals weren’t subjected to testing of chemical compounds and unnatural substances.
Do you know: lavender important oil, when used responsibly (not ingested or utilized topically undiluted), is nice for calming canine. A favorite of ours (and Lauryn’s) is our Settle Down spray and diffuser oil.
♡ Clear merchandise might be multipurpose.
When merchandise are clear, with straightforward to learn ingredient lists, you’ll discover they can be utilized for greater than what they’re marketed for. Once we began promoting our natural child wash, Sleepy Time, we stored listening to from mothers who liked utilizing it as their nighttime facial cleanser! This implies clear magnificence for the entire household with no need a cluttered counter of merchandise!
Do you know: advertising has led us to imagine that we’d like a distinct product for each a part of our physique, and for various occasions of the day. Our Drenched whipped face and physique butter is a good instance of natural substances mixed to offer deep hydration, head to toe!
♡ Pure merchandise are often undiluted and concentrated, which means just a little can go a great distance, which additionally makes them simpler in your pocketbook.
When merchandise are free from unnatural fillers and water, you’ll be able to management how a lot is utilized. For instance: apply a concentrated physique butter to damp pores and skin. This permits the butters and oils to be absorbed into pores and skin and far much less product is used.
Do you know: the common lady places 168 chemical compounds on her physique every day!
A very powerful a part of wellness is training. Take the time to be taught in regards to the values of the manufacturers you select to assist, the substances they use and discover merchandise that work finest for you and your loved ones.
