Our homes are our sanctuaries from the crazy, toxic, busy world. Unfortunately, most homes in America are not healthy. Chemicals abound in personal care and cleaning products. Fortunately many safe options exist, but not all items labeled “green” truly are safe. [amazon_link id=”B001YIY5A8″ target=”_blank” ]Green Virgin Products[/amazon_link] are non-toxic and non-carcinogenic.
Green Virgin Products began online in January of 2009. We had just sold our business of 14 years in 2008 with the intent to retire. However, when the economy crashed, we had to go back to work. At around the same time, my older brother died of cancer at the age of only 52. He did not smoke and lived a very healthy lifestyle.
I struggled to find the cause of his untimely death and began doing a lot of research into the possible causes and sources that might have lead to his cancer. The answers that surfaced were shocking to me. The causes appeared in areas I never expected. I learned for example that laundry detergents and fabric softeners contain a lot of very toxic chemicals, including known human carcinogens. This revelation led me on a path towards eco-friendly products.
We were sent four Green Virgin Products to try:
[amazon_link id=”B0053HIG38″ target=”_blank” ]Moringa Leaf Powder 150 Grams, Green Virgin Products, Better Than Vitamins[/amazon_link]:
In the style of the old adage “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”, it is probably more true to say “A dose of Moringa powder a day keeps the doctor at bay”, which takes on a whole new meaning if you look at the substantial benefits the dried and powdered leaves of the Moringa tree have to offer. Packed with nutrients, anti-oxidants, minerals and vitamins, the properties of this plant contribute to your health in a way that is nothing less than amazing. Moringa is a remarkable source of nutrition, an energy booster and it aids in the treatment of a number of diseases.
[amazon_link id=”B001YIY5A8″ target=”_blank” ]Green Virgin Soap Nuts 1 Kilo or 2.2 Lbs or 35.3 Ounces. Approx 330 Wash Loads. Includes 3 Wash Bags. Usda Certified Organic[/amazon_link]:
They are actually the fruit that grow on the Chinese Soap Berry Tree. These miraculous berries are harvested and then dried in the sun to preserve them. They are used as a replacement for toxic chemical cleaners and laundry detergents.The shell is the part that is useful. They are loaded with an all natural surfactant known as saponin. Saponin can be found in various other species of plants, but soap nuts have the highest concentration of saponin by far. Saponin cleans very effectively with none of the hazardous chemicals that synthetic detergents have. They are the only detergent to have a net negative carbon footprint which makes them one of the best green products in the world today. But not only are they non-toxic, they are also hypoallergenic and gentle on the skin so they are safe for use by anyone, especially baby diapers.
[amazon_link id=”B0053JCLUU” target=”_blank” ]100% Pure, All Natural, Mineral Salts Deodorant Stone, Green Virgin Products[/amazon_link]
Your perspiration, when it first leaves your body is sterile and odorless. When it comes in contact with the bacteria that lives on your skin, the bacteria multiplies, and it’s the multiplying bacteria that causes the odor. The mineral salts deodorant stone leaves a thin film of the salts on your skin and the bacteria can not thrive in the mineral salts environment. Therefore, no odors. You will not smell at all. It works better than the toxic cover up deodorants. It’s also a natural astringent that can be used like a styptic pencil to stop small bleeding from shaving etc.
Soap Nuts Liquid:
Because this is the extract of a fruit, it has a short shelf life of about 2 weeks if no preservative is used. Therefore, a preservative is needed. Preseratives can be toxic. That is why we were hesitant to sell a soap nuts liquid because of our commitment to only selling totally non toxic products. Until now the least toxic preservative for soap nuts liquids has been rated a 3 on the Skin Deep Database. A rating of zero is totally non toxic, a 10 is very toxic. A rating of 3 is not too bad, but it is too high for us. We finally found a pair of non toxic preservatives that working together make a non toxic and extremely effective preservative. The Preservatives we use are caprylyl glycol and phenethyl alcohol. These preservatives are rated a 0 and a 1 on the Skin Deep Data Base. That is about as non toxic as you can get. Our liquid has at least a 2 year shelf life.
I am impressed by the ethics of Green Virgin Products to be truly non-toxic and effective. This is a company that you can fully trust. Plus, I love their motto, “Because children deserve pristine planet”. I agree!
Green Virgin Products green promises are true. I highly recommend their products!
