Chemicals in the Home & Your Health

Detox your home from common toxicants and chemical products so you can have peace of mind that your family is living in a healthier home.

Why Are the Everyday Chemicals in Our Homes a Health Hazard?

Cleaning products, washing powders, toiletries and synthetic fragrances. The list of chemicals in our homes goes on and on.

Did you know that the majority of these products we use every day are not independently regulated?

Cleaning products by law do not need to list ingredients on the label.

While in Australia, like most of the rest of the world, there isn’t much in the way of rules or regulations on which ingredients can be used in skincare products either.

In fact, there is no pre-market testing for health and safety. On top of that, there is no assessment done on how one ingredient interacts with another, making them even more toxic.

In essence, such industries are self-regulating!

However, the nasties in these products can be harmful to our health.
