Hand soap: you use it every day, but have you ever turned the bottle around and wondered what’s in there? Or perhaps, the better question to ask is, what shouldn’t be in there? Take a look at a few of the common ingredients added into liquid hand soap formulations to learn what to avoid.
These are unprecedented times. These may feel like worrisome, upsetting, highly stressful times. Nothing is the same, and this is definitely not business as usual. We will all certainly be tested in ways we cannot yet foretell, as these weeks of being relatively “alone” in self-induced isolation persist. While we need to keep our physical distance to “flatten the curve,” at the same time, we need our communities to keep us grounded, balanced, and soothed. And our communities need us for the exact same reasons.
In the midst of the Coronavirus concern, good hand hygiene is more relevant than ever. We’ve covered handwashing and hand soaps, but what about situations when soap and running water are not available to us? In these circumstances we need the next best thing: hand sanitizer.
As the world watches the Coronavirus continue to evolve, one thing we know for certain is that it’s imperative to enact proper handwashing. That simple act alone can play an important role in helping to protect us.
The reality is that there are unsafe chemicals in school supplies. At worst there are carcinogens in the classroom and what parents don’t realize is that they’re buying these harmful products and sending their kids to school with them each and every day.
Many of us don’t realize that access to soap and a place to wash our hands is still a luxury that is out of reach for people in many corners of the world. Today, 1.4 million children still die from diseases that could be prevented through the simple act of handwashing. For Soapply founder, Mera McGrew, this became obvious when she lived and worked in Africa. She returned to the US determined to build a soap company, but Soapply is about more than just soap. (more…)
Picking out non-toxic gifts is difficult, especially when it comes to stocking stuffers. Too often we end up filling stockings with plastic trinkets and toxic personal care products (unknowingly exposing our loved ones to harmful chemicals) and things that our giftee just plain won’t use. Our team has taken the guesswork out by creating a list of our favorite MADE SAFE® certified products that your family will love (and actually use!) this holiday season. (more…)
