MADE SAFE invites you to participate in our 2020 New Year’s Revolution – a series of monthly challenges to swap toxic household products for safer alternatives. So far, we’ve tackled cleaning products, hand soaps, and hand sanitizers. This month – we’re talking clothing.
Creating a more sustainable wardrobe can feel intimidating. Just a toe-dip into the realm of clean and ethical fashion can make you start asking questions like: How was this item of clothing made? Who made it? What’s it made of? How do I spot safer and more ethical items online or on the rack? There’s a lot to consider, we know.
Diethanolamine is a substance that is most commonly used to create more complex ingredients that are used in a wide range of personal care products, cosmetics, cleaning products, and household goods. This includes, shampoos, cosmetics, deodorant, hair dye, dishwashing detergents and chemicals used in the production of textiles.
You’re staying safe at home with nowhere to really go, but that doesn’t mean you don’t want to look good (Zoom hair notwithstanding, of course). So we wanted to share some tips about how to care for your hair in quarantine.
That’s why we spoke with Dr. Christine Martey-Ochola, Co-Founder of NUELE, a company committed to making clean, natural, and MADE SAFE® certified hair products that don’t contain harmful or synthetic ingredients. She shared her favorite beauty and hair hacks while you shelter-in-place and beyond.
When it comes to conventional fashion, the more you know, the more you start to look at your closet differently. Shopping becomes not just about how a piece fits, how much it costs, and how much you love it. As you learn more about the fashion industry, you start asking yourself how clothing was made, who made the piece, and what it’s made of.
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.
