Amazing Body Oils

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing,Personal Care at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

One of the best ways to keep your skin properly moisturized is to use body oils regularly. Not as popular as body lotions, body oils are an excellent alternative and offer additional benefits to keep your skin moisturized while relaxing your mind and improving your body’s overall health.

Body oils are smooth, thick and highly concentrated liquids that are usually clear in color and enhance the appearance and quality of skin. The best body oils are organic, free of chemicals and extracted from roots, fruits, flowers and leaves. Some people avoid using body oil because they believe oil and skin don’t mix, often leaving the body greasy. In fact, body oils actually enhance the quality of your skin because they soak quickly and deeply into skin to leave it moisturized for longer periods of time.

Massaging your skin with body oils may help to improve your overall health by reducing aches and pains and decreasing stress. Some body oils contain special blends of ingredients designed to target specific areas of your body. For example, some oils help to relieve upset stomachs while others improve circulation, alleviate pain in sore muscles and relieve stiff joints. Many of the benefits of body oils relate to their use in massage therapy. Body oils make it easier to rub and massage skin, causing less friction and discomfort when a masseuse manipulates your body tissue.

Additionally, body oils are perfect for Swedish massage techniques to calm the nervous system and increase nutritive circulation in the skin. In addition to helping alleviate everyday aches and pains, studies have shown that massage lessens stiffness and increases the function of joints for those suffering from osteoarthritis.

Lastly, body oils are more economical than lotions. This might seem contradictory because the best body oils are more expensive than lotions, but remember that a little body oil goes a long way and you used much less than lotion for each session, saving some money on the long run. You only need to use a little bit of oil to cover a lot of skin and moisturize skin effectively. While it might take several pumps of body lotion to quench your skin’s thirst, a tiny dollop of body oil will be sufficient in covering most of your body.

What’s New? Pur Gum

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing,Personal Care at 4:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Lucky Vitamin is proud to present a top-quality brand of natural, great-tasting chewing gum to our customers: Pur Gum.

Pur Gum offers a unique selection of aspartame-free gum products. The company has developed this exclusive great-tasting chewing gum using only the highest quality ingredients available. Pur Gum has become the number one selling aspartame-free gum worldwide since the initial launch in 2010. The company’s philosophy is to make simple substitutions by eliminating chemical sweeteners thus providing consumers with optimal health, and confidence in chewing gum.

Pur Gum products are vegan, gluten-free, non-gmo, nut-free, diabetic friendly and dairy free. Swiss made, Pur Gum products are made without chemicals or artificial sweeteners, and only sweetened with xylitol, a natural sweetener derived from corn fibers grown in Europe. Pur Gum contains absolutely no animal ingredients, and is 100% certified Vegan.  Aspartame is the man-made, synthetic sweetener found in most sugar-free gums, beverages, and candies. This food additive has been linked to symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, mood change, vomiting, nausea, and change in heart rate. Pur Gum is completely aspartame-free, sweetened instead with Xylitol, an all-natural sweetener found in many fruits and vegetables.

Xylitol is good for your teeth, stabilizes insulin and hormone levels, promotes good health and has none of the negative side effects of white sugar or artificial sweeteners. Xylitol looks like sugar, tastes like sugar, and has the same sweetness as sugar, making it the ideal natural sugar replacement. Each Pur Gum contains one gram of Xylitol and only 2.4 calories per gram.

Pur Gum is available in four mouthwatering flavors: spearmint, peppermint, wintergreen and pomegranate mint.

Stop the Stink Naturally

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing,Personal Care at 8:00 am | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

If you’re reading this blog, you’ve probably heard about how the deodorants commonly found at your local grocery store are filled with nasty stuff that can cause Alzheimers’s, birth defects and multiple types of cancers. Before you make your next purchase, be sure to check out the label and try to avoid the following ingredients:

The main ingredient in antiperspirants is aluminum. This metal helps prevent sweat from leaving your pores and has been linked to breast cancer in women and Alzheimer’s in men. Another toxic component is propylene glycol – a petroleum-based product that easily penetrates the skins and acts as a wetting agent. It can cause cancer and contains toxins that disrupt reproductive function.

Other chemicals to watch out for include Parabens, Phthalates, Triclosan, Diproplyene Glycol, 1 PEG-14 Dimethicone, PEG/PPG – 18/18 Dimethicone and PEG-8 Distearate. I know this may seem confusing (unless you’re a chemist) but when in doubt check out Environmental Working Group’s  site for a list of natural deodorant brands that are safe to use.

Before you make the switch to the au naturale route there are a few things you should know. For the first 7-14 days your body will go through an adjustment period – ie, you might stink during this time. But have no fear; your body is merely detoxing years of accumulated toxins that have burrowed themselves in your underarm areas. During this time it’s best to wear loose, breathable fabrics to prevent your perspiration from sticking to your body. Also, try to reduce your intake of red meat. Recent studies revealed those who have a higher consumption of red meat have an increased likelihood of sweating. Also, try to stay away from processed foods, opting instead for a more plant-based, whole foods diet. While showering, rub a sugar scrub on your armpits to exfoliate the top layer of skin and speed up the detox period.

Remember, everyone’s body is different and what works for you may not work for somebody else. Keep trying different brands and feel good about your decision to stop the stink naturally!

What’s New? Kind Soap

Filed Under: Baby and Child Health,Personal Care at 12:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Lucky Vitamin is happy to introduce another premium brand of personal care products to our customers: Kind Soap Company.

Kind Soap Company offers a variety of personal care products created with the highest quality natural ingredients without sacrificing the effectiveness of these “healthier” products. The company uses various organic and wild harvested ingredients and the label listing is always complete and 100% guaranteed, unlike many companies that “legally” omit ingredients and preservatives that fall below .5% of the product formula.

Kind Soap Company philosophy is to always be kind in three different ways: kind to your skin, kind to the earth, and kind to others. Kind to the skin means never formulating a product with known skin irritants like sulfates and synthetic fragrance, hormone disruptors, and carcinogenic chemicals commonly found in traditional body care products. No parabens, formaldehyde-releasing agents, or any other suspicious preservatives will ever be used in any Kind Soap products. Only pure, non-solvent-extracted essential oils are used to give the products their wonderful scents, and natural botanicals, spices and naturally mined pigments are used for color.

Being Kind to the earth involves eco-conscious decisions about packaging and processes. The goal is to reduce deforestation and depletion of natural resources by utilizing tree-free labels, water free printing, and vegetable based inks. Kind Soap wants to reduce toxic emissions and polluted air and water by using only biodegradable product ingredients, and wind energy for printing as well as minimizing the ever-growing mounds of non-biodegradable trash on land and sea by reusing and recycling of all packaging. Lastly, be kind to others. A portion of every product sold goes to the Autism Speaks organization, in addition to funding many other worthy organizations through product sales and donations throughout the year.

5 Chemical Free Alternatives to Sunscreen

Filed Under: Environment,General Wellness & Wellbeing,Personal Care at 1:03 pm | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

 

Whether you’re at the beach or just hanging out in your backyard, it’s important to protect yourself and your family from the sun’s damaging rays. Unfortunately, any old sunscreen won’t do. Most commercial sunscreens contain a wide variety of toxic ingredients and have the potential to do more harm than good. Recent reports have suggested that some of the main ingredients found in mass produced sunscreens could even cause cancer.

Here’s a list of potential toxic chemicals that may be learking in you sunscreen:

  • Para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA), including octyl-dimethyl PABA
  • Benzophenones, especially benzophenone-3, Oxybenzone
  • Cinnamates, namely octyl-methoxycinnamate (OMC)
  • Homosalate
  • 4-methyl-benzylidene camphor (4-MBC)
  • Retinyl Palmitate

Luckily, there are ways to protect your skin from overexposure without the use of harsh chemicals. Many natural oils offer protection from the sun and offer varying levels of SPF.

Get sun protection without the toxins

When shopping for sunscreens be sure to read the labels and avoid buying sunscreens containing toxic chemicals, such as those found in the above list. Or you could try making your own using safe oils (some which you can find in your kitchen!).

Here are some natural alternatives to traditional sunscreens that feature some built-in SPF protection:

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil can provide a SPF of 8. Even though this isn’t a very high SPF, multiple applications can provide extra moisture and prevent skin from burning.

Wheatgerm Oil

Wheat-germ oil contains vitamin A, vitamin D, B vitamins and antioxidants. These nutrients not only moisturize and heal dry or cracked skin, they also help prevent scarring. In particular, wheat-germ oil has a natural SPF of and is a great source of vitamin E, which helps reduce skin damage.

Shea Butter

Shea butter has an SPF of about 6, which is perfect for low sun levels or people with naturally dark skin. It works wonders on dry skin and eczema because it’s readily absorbed into the skin and contains so many fatty acids.

Red Raspberry Seed Oil

Red Raspberry Seed Oil is a great additional to skin care products due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Recently, this fruit oil has been found to contain an SPF as high as 28-50 which is equal to that of titanium dioxide.

Carrot Seed Oil

This essential oil is contains a natural SPF of 38 to 40. Carrot seed oil therapeutic benefits include antioxidant, antiseptic and high levels of Vitamin A. Make sure to use with a carrier oil before applying it to your skin.

While many of the ingredients used are in fact certified organic through suppliers’ certification, Valentina’s facility is not yet certified organic and as a result the company cannot label the products as organic.

Celebrate Hemp History Week…It’s time to grow

Filed Under: Announcements & News,Environment,Health Foods,Personal Care at 8:00 am | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

This week marks the fifth annual Hemp History Week. More than ever, people are learning the benefits of this amazing plant. It’s been seen in health foods, skincare products, textiles and even building materials! Despite’s ever growing popularity, it’s misguided and outdated policy prevents U.S. farmers from growing this versatile, nutritious, eco-friendly crop.

Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant. It is not the same as marijuana, as it does not contain the high levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the active ingredient that produces a high. Hemp, or industrial hemp, is a cultivated, low-THC variety of Cannabis. It is grown for its seeds, oil and fiber.

Hemp is full of nutritional benefits. It’s a great source of complete protein with ten amino acids, omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids, Vitamin E, and iron. Vegan and gluten-free, hemp is an ideal, non-dairy alternative for vegetarian, vegan and raw diets or anyone with soy or dairy allergies.

Hemp Oil is becoming the new olive oil. A recent study in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry detailed the numerous compounds in hempseed oil, which contains aliphatic alcohols, sterols and linolenic acids, which have all been associated with promoting good health.

You can you hemp seed in a variety of ways – added in smoothies, sprinkled in salads, cereals and dips or you can even substitute them for nuts in baked goods. You can even try making your own hemp milk or ground them into a meal.

We need work together to help farmers and support hemp farming in the U.S. Let’s educate our elected officials about the economic benefits of growing non-drug, industrial hemp on American soil.

Castile Soaps Benefits

Filed Under: Environment,Personal Care at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Castile soaps have been a popular product for many generations for its purity, natural cleaning ability and variety of uses. Known for its ability to refresh and rejuvenate your skin, castile soaps are made with only natural plant extracts, fragrances, and oils, recreating the old fashion art of traditional soap-making.

Castile soap is found in a natural liquid or hard soap form. Both products are made from vegetable-based ingredients, often produced organically and sourced using fair trade principles. True castile soap is made purely with olive oil as the first soaps were produced by boiling olive oil with plant ashes. Today, many castile soaps in the market are made with a combination of olive oil and palm or coconut oil, which may offer their own beneficial properties, and often scented with essential oils, as a multipurpose cleanser.

Castile soap is especially good for dry, itchy, irritated, or sensitive skin, and conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.  It works well in oily skin and acne by helping with balancing oil production, and for not clogging pores.

An excellent environmental choice, castile soaps do not contain synthetic fragrances or detergents that can upset the balance of the environment when it enters the wastewater stream. Additionally, when cleaning with castile soap, most people do not need to wear rubber gloves or worry about skin irritation due to its non-toxic formula. The soap cuts through grime in kitchens, bathrooms and other hard surfaces. Castile soap can also be used to laundry cleans clothes without harsh detergents. Castile soap is often sold in concentrated form, making it an economical option.

Hair, Skin and Nail Supplements

Filed Under: Personal Care,Supplements,Vitamins and Minerals at 4:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Isn’t it great when you find a supplement that can provide more than one benefit? We often shop for a product that can help with one health issue and, as a plus, this same product may provide benefits for something else. So, how about if you can take a supplement that can provide not one, not two, but three benefits? That’s the case for Hair, Skin and Nails supplements.

Hair, Skin and Nails supplements have been around for quite some time and some people have always obtained good results from them. These popular supplements have the ability to help in three different areas because their formulas contain ingredients capable of providing benefits for many health issues. The majority of products contain a combination of vitamins, minerals and herbs. They are very much like multivitamin products but with specific dosages and extra ingredients to support healthy hair, and promote beautiful skin and nails. People can certainly take the most of these supplements, proven to be extremely effective in addressing certain skin, nail, or hair issues.

When shopping Hair, Skin and Nail Supplements check for a few ingredients, including biotin, omega-3, and vitamin B. Biotin is definitely the most important ingredient as it encourages the production of protein for nail growth, it stimulates new hair growth and promotes healthier texture by protecting against dryness, scalp flaking and increasing elasticity of the hair’s cortex to prevent breakage. A Vitamin B complex can also be helpful as vitamin B deficiency is a major cause of acne, so making sure your body receives enough will help prevent and treat the condition. Omega-3s are an excellent ingredient to maintain healthy hair and skin as the fatty acids helps protect and repair skin cells, moisturizing the skin from the inside out.
