Over the years, I’ve become somewhat of a stickler for organic products. I download data on the health benefits, friends forward articles, and I research over and over what products are the best to buy organically. Although I think a lot about what I put into my body, I rarely think about what I’m putting on it.
Six months ago I started reading the ingredients of my lotion and facial cleanser. Believe it or not, in most beauty products I found BHA and BHT, Formaldehyde, PEGs, Petroleum and more, all of which have been linked to or may cause cancer. So for all around health, thinking about what we put on our body is just as important as what we put in it. For the last six months, I’ve been using natural lotion, scrub, cleanser, and shampoo, and the verdict is in.
My dry skin has disappeared, my skin is smoother, I’m sporting a super glow, and overall I feel cleaner.
I’m hooked on products from a company called Siam SEAS. The products, which I’m calling super food for the skin, are chock full of natural properties that restore, rejuvenate, and radically rock the cells to the core. All the products are handmade and the recipes combine herbs, fruits, plants, and flowers indigenous to Southeast Asia.
If someone had told me years ago that Tamarind could lighten some of the dark blotches on my skin or that something called Safflower could reduce cellulite, well, I would have stopped using harsh chemicals on my body way before now. So, I’m spreading the word here. The company makes everything: hand soap, body scrub, a coconut collection, a detoxification collection, skin moisturizers, face masks, shampoos and conditioners.
I’m a fan of all their products, but my favorite so far are the body scrubs. My top three:
1) Malva Nut & Honey: Reduces cellulite and stretch marks.
2) Noni & Honey: Packed with vitamin A,C,K, and other antioxidants that help slow the aging process.
Because I truly believe in these products, I reached out to the company and let them know I was going to write about them on this blog.
