Many of the beauty products on the market contain parabens, PEG compounds, and petrolatum, which are linked to endocrine problems and cancer. Almost all the personal care products out there use fragrances (yes, even those marketed as unscented). Of the thousands of chemicals used in fragrances, most have not been tested for toxicity and can cause allergies, asthma, and some can even cause cancer and neurotoxicity. Yikes!
I have yet to try the herbal therapy muscle and cold balm BUT I passed it on to my husband who works out religiously and often suffers from lower back pain. He loved this alternative to Icy Hot and I am excited to use it in place of Vick's Vapor Rub next time I have a cold (which is hopefully never)
My second favorite Skin Food product has got to be the natural deodorant. I made the decision a while ago to switch from my Dove deodorant to a natural deodorant after hearing that there are links between the aluminum found in deodorant and breast cancer. I didn't like natural deodorant when I first started using it because I felt like it made me sweat more, apparently my pores had been clogged from my prior deodorant and my body was detoxing. I have been using only natural for several months now and I love it. The Skin Food Sandalwood Natural Deodorant goes on smooth, smells great all day, and makes me feel fresh and clean, so far it is my favorite natural deodorant that I've tried and I will definitely be ordering more.
