Low Tox Hand Sanitise product

Hand sanitise products are used to stop germs from spreading with a quick squirt on the hand. Have you ever considered the chemicals which are in some of these products and the benefits of moving to a low tox hand sanitise version?

To help you navigate the world of chemicals in your regular hand sanitise product, I personally use a book called the Chemical Maze by Bill Statham.

The book helps you identify toxic chemicals and cosmetic ingredients to avoid. The Chemical Maze is also available in a clever app for your smartphone – that way you have the research in hand while out and about.

With the new information about chemicals and living a low-tox lifestyle, we can make more informed choices about what we purchase and when interacting with them in our environment.

I had the pleasure of working with Amelia from @Wonderbirthing a pregnancy / postpartum support business based on supporting YOU to have a Wonderful Birth and start your journey into motherhood.
