Toxic sunscreens are being banned. It is about time. The Republic of Palau, an island in the western Pacific ocean, has passed a new law, as of January 2020, banning the sale and use of sunscreen skincare products that contain toxic chemicals.* This follows on Hawaii’s proposed ban of 2 of the toxic ingredients, oxybenzone or octinoxite , that will take place in 2021. Other tourist destinations (...

Imagine living here in Canada hundreds of years ago. Imagine being able to call over to New Zealand for their Manuka Oil or Africa for their Shea Butter. Imagine being able to contact India and ask for Neem, or order Emu Oil from Australia and have it here in four days? Imagine the magic you could have created for your skin? Today you can.  We do.  Earth to Body’s skin care is ‘multicultural ...

“Please don’t open”, I begged the suite door to our adjoining rooms. “Be well, my daughters.”. I was in the claws of a severe food poisoning that night and was sick beyond any nightmare I could have imagined. Day number 3 at our Cuban resort. Thankfully, the door remained silent. In the morning, my husband summoned the doctor for me.   “Where did you get this arsenal?” he exclaimed, as he perused...

If you have found a skin care line that works for you, kudos. Stick with it. It is like having a job you are happy to greet each day. I tried to find the % of people who were happy with their skin. Google was confused with this request, but did acknowledge discussion on ‘one’s skin and happiness’. Our skin is our mirror. No one likes to hear, “You look tired.” If the person is a good friend and...

The holiday season is here. For some, it brings to mind the nativity scene and the gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. A few years ago I wrote an article honouring myrrh, the reddish brown sap from the thorny tree, native to northern Africa and the Middle East.  Myrrh has many uses in the cosmetic and health worlds. Being the season, it is a good time to revisit. Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh...

But then try to find it Argan oil should NOT be considered just another oil flooding the market. But it is. There are creams, lotions, hair treatments, shampoos, and soaps proudly advertising ‘with argan oil’.  It happens…something really good comes along and the market jumps on the bandwagon. Something too good to be true is an invitation to all.  We have a history with the pure, the real, argan...

A southern duo. Sheamu and you. To travel south without your sheamu is like venturing into an arctic storm without a hooded parka. Not a wise decision. The hot can often be as equally challenging as the cold. Snowbirds know to go prepared. The sun takes its toll. Protection is key. Individually, the Shea, native African and the unrefined Emu, native Australian, are both unchallenged. Centuries...

I was shocked, well, not really, when the trouncing of coconut oil hit last week on Marketplace. It was bound to happen. Any billion-dollar industry such as coconut would increase the competitors' angst and ire.   I wish I could have been a fly on the wall when Marketplace did the final editing. Even knowing how incredible coconut is, I was fascinated at how easily one might be swayed by the...

First, let me note that the All Purpose Sanitizer is one of my favourite products to date and I use it frequently. The main bunch of...
