Organic Body Soap – Food for Your Skin

When you’ve got a bun in the oven, it’s important to consider not only what you feed your belly, but also what you feed the largest organ of your body — your skin. Studies suggest that parabens, which are found in many cosmetics, soaps and lotions, contribute to the overall toxic load in the body and may interrupt normal development.

I’ve been working to transition from my usual products to those that are whole and pure and paraben-free. I love this hemp almond soap from Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps. It doesn’t dry out my skin, leaves no soap residue and smells wonderful! And, I feel good about my skin drinking up nourishing ingredients like organic coconut and olive oil.

More of my favorite products to come!
