It’s a new year, a new beginning and you want to start the year feeling fresh and full of energy. You’ve likely walked into 2018 with a long list of shiny resolutions, but what if something as simple as washing your hands could add a spring to your step?
It’s no secret that we are pro-bacteria. In fact, we LOVE all things bacteria and believe it’s a necessity to living a balanced, healthy life. Our hard-working hands have been everywhere and deserve to be treated with more care than chemically driven products can give. If you’re ready to make a big impact on your energy this year by making one small change; we suggest starting with Healthy Hands.
Meet your skin biome
Our skin plays home to a universe of microbes that help keep us balanced and healthy. This elaborate ecosystem hosts trillions of microorganisms and is referred to as the skin biome. Our skin biome is nurtured from birth and continuously evolves throughout our lives, as it interacts with the various aspects of our environment and lifestyle. Similar to the gut, keeping our skin biome happy is critical to keeping our immune system strong, so it’s important to pay attention what your skin is exposed to. Excess use of antibacterial products like hand sanitisers and soaps can create a microbiome imbalance, leaving the skin vulnerable to pathogens and increasing the risk of many diseases including psoriasis, allergies, eczema, rosacea, yeast and fungal infections and even accelerated skin ageing. It’s important to clean your busy hands with a biome-friendly product, like Healthy Hands, which helps foster the growth of the bacteria we need fighting for our well-being.
No toxic chemicals allowed
You know how we love bacteria, right? Well, that’s why we say NO to hosting any toxic chemicals in our products. Many of the antibacterial products on the market contain toxic chemicals, which can present harm to our endocrine system. The endocrine system is responsible for secreting the hormones into our blood to regulate various body functions – it’s vital. These toxic chemicals can sometimes interfere with the normal production of hormones, leaving our body seriously compromised to an array of diseases. Research is even showing that antibacterial washes are no better at removing germs than plain soap and water. Some of these chemicals are also used in pesticides – yuck! While there are a few chemicals used in our Healthy Hands formula, these are NOT in any way toxic to your system and are of very low percentage to ensure the probiotics shine through. We focus on using ingredients that aren’t going to interfere with your hand’s thriving ecosystem.
That beautiful smell? It’s all-natural
Here are the facts; our Healthy Hands will not only tantalise your senses, transcend your mind and leave you feeling reinvigorated, it will do it all naturally. Unlike other skin care products, we use natural essential oils to create beautifully scented probiotic hand soap that will revitalise and nourish your busy hands. These oils are derived from the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. It’s important to check the label of the product you’re using because the difference between synthetic and natural is a lot bigger than merely the smell. Synthetic fragrances are often comprised of chemical compounds which are common allergens or have links to hormone disruption (we’re talking the endocrine system here). Natural essential oils, on the other hand, provide significant benefits including boosting your mood, increasing immune functionality and promoting relaxation. So you can understand why we’re committed to using only natural oils. We want to help provide your skin biome with the best environment we possibly can.
It may seem simple (that’s because it is), but the way you wash hands can have a real impact on your overall health and level of energy. Healthy Hands means a more healthy you, who is resistant to diseases and can walk into the new year with vibrancy.
