My Top 6 Favorite Naturally Safer Personal-Care Products

After working at Lifekind for over 2 years now, I feel like it's time to give our readers a list of my top 6 favorite Naturally Safer personal-care products. In no particular order here they are:   Naturally Safer Rejuvenating Shampoo- This amazing shampoo helps relieve dandruff, psoriasis, and scalp irritation from chemical processing thanks to the special “herbal complex” listed high on the ingredient list. This herbal complex contains rosemary, ginseng, arnica montana, and hypernicum (aka St. John's wort), all of which are proven effective soothers in the plant world. The nourishing botanicals also include coconut oil, panthenol (vitamin B5), and tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), which help to moisturize and leave hair shiny. The MSM (a naturally occurring sulfur) nourishes both hair and scalp in a gentle formula that won't strip natural oils, but still really cleans.


Naturally Safer Rejuvenating Conditioner- My 11-year-old daughter's smiling face and tangle-free hair are the greatest testimonials I have for this conditioner. She is blessed with very long, thick hair that equates to a three-and-a-half-half hour endeavor to pick through after a lice scare at school (oh, a mother's love...). We discovered that using this conditioner after the MSM Revitalizing Shampoo in the shower, then rubbing a pea-size amount through the ends of her hair left her hair smelling fresh, and no more tangles, naturally. Life is beautiful when a mother and daughter smile together!


Naturally Safer Crystallite Deodorant- There is no subtle way to sing the praises of this deodorant – it really works! I tend to be a rather, ahem, odoriferous lady, and this is the only natural product that can keep up with me. Within a week of switching, even my husband noticed. Customers often ask if the active ingredient, potassium alum, is unsafe or contains aluminum; the good news is, according to Dr. Mercola, “Potassium Alum or Ammonium Alum are natural mineral salts made up of molecules that are too large to be absorbed by your skin. They form a protective layer on your skin that inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria.”


Organic Buckwheat Hull Heat Lumbar Wrap- Use it cold for sprains, or warm to ease muscle pain; ease fever discomfort on your head, or sooth your spine while on your back in bed. You can tie it around your waist, or tuck under the shoulders to treat the neck and stay in place. I truly love this lumbar wrap; it gives relief anytime, in any space!


Naturally Safer Organic Body Polish- Did you make a New Year's resolution to work out and get in shape? This can help you stay on track. Last year when I took up running, and felt pained even thinking about moving, I discovered this fantastic treat after a workout. The crystalline salt helps to smooth skin and the natural oils mean no need for moisturizer once you are out of the shower, so feel free to indulge without adding extra time in your routine. Adding organic lavender and geranium essential oils means you will feel calm and rejuvenated -- perfect after a long day or a slow morning. The organic sunflower and safflower oils are easily absorbed and formulated to blend with water so the greasy shower effect is greatly reduced. Still, use caution though, as you will be extra slick!


Naturally Safer Moisturizing Lotion with MSM- A common question we hear is: What is MSM? MSM, or methylsulfonylmethane, is a naturally occurring (deodorized) sulfur that supports the joints and connective tissue, reduces hyperpigmentation, and has anti-inflammatory properties. As if that wasn't enough to convince you, this lotion also helps treat itching, minor burns, sunburns, bug bites and rashes. The optional lavender scent comes from the addition of organic essential oil and gives some extra “oomph” in relieving these everyday ailments, along with a calming fragrance.


The “honorable mention” of this blog is the Naturally Safer Personal-Care Travel Kit. A great way to travel with your favorites, or try a little bit of everything until you love it all as much as I do.
