Avoiding harmful substances is a huge part of having a healthy, low-risk pregnancy. It is also vitally important to reduce exposures to chemicals and toxins when our Sweet Peas are earthside. Today's "Inside Look" is at a company dedicated to reducing chemical exposure for the whole family.
Rebecca was one of our Fall 2011 Bradley students. She was already passionate about having a healthy, low-risk pregnancy before she started our classes, so it's no surprise that she found this company way back when they started out of the founder's kitchen. (FYI: Rebecca is a great "green living" resource as well - she is my "go to" gal when I have questions about "safe" products or ingredients.)
I hope you enjoy reading more about the incredible products that Poofy Organics offers. Be sure to read through to the end so you can take advantage of a special offer for SPB readers.
A woman who had a family member diagnosed with breast cancer started this amazing company. She started to learn about the amount of chemicals women are exposed to on a daily basis just from their use of personal care products. She found that women could expose themselves to over 100 chemicals on a daily basis, just from the products that they apply to their skin. Kristina couldn’t find any companies that had products that were clean enough and worked well enough, so she started creating her own. This was the beginning of Poofy Organics. This company is very passionate about providing the safest products available at a reasonable price. Everything is hand made, in small batches in a USDA organic certified facility in New Jersey. While not all products are 100 % organic, they are as pure as they come. Certain ingredients cannot be certified organic by law, but everything is clearly labeled and there is 100% disclosure on the label.
What is your favorite Poofy Organics product or product line?
I love so many products. The first product I started using from them is their deodorant. A friend recommended it, and I was immediately hooked. My husband even uses it when he goes to the gym! Now that I have had a chance to try so many more products, I have so many more favorites! I love their Ciao Eczema lotion. While I don’t have eczema, it is the best lotion I have used on my chapped hands. It rubs in easily and is a great moisturizer. I also love the Everything Salve. I use it on any skin irritation my daughter may have, especially her mosquito bites! She gets eczema on her face, and this provides immediate relief. The dish soap is the best dish soap I have ever used, and it lasts forever. I also really like the all-purpose cleaner concentrate. It is a great alternative to just vinegar and water, and super cheap! It is less than $2/17oz cleaner. I also can’t live without their mascara and face lotion. The mascara has the absolute best ingredients, and it actually works! The face lotion smells amazing, rubs in so well, and leaves no greasy residue. It also lasts forever because you only need a tiny amount at a time.
Who should use Poofy Organics products?
Everyone should use Poofy, especially if you are pregnant or a new mom. I would say the most important product to swap out would be deodorant. Your skin is so thin in that area, and that is where breast cancer is commonly found.
What makes Poofy Organics unique?
I have used so many products over the years, and I am always researching ingredients. This is the first company that I found that is as passionate about ingredient safety as I am. They are always researching as well. I also like that they are hand made in small batches, but in a certified facility. That way I know that the products are safe for me, and my family. Any company can use the words organic and natural. There are very few regulations on the cosmetic industry. On average, 10 ingredients are actually left off the label completely. Poofy Organics has a 100% full disclosure policy. Many of their products are completely USDA certified organic. I have only found a few companies that I will even buy products from, but Poofy has the largest selection and the best ingredients.
What motivated you to start as a representative?
I have bought products from them since they started. I was working with woman trying to green schools, and people kept asking me for product recommendations. I decided to become a representative so I could do group buys and save some people money on shipping, and it lets me offer discounts. I truly love these products and wanted to find a way to make it easier for people to get them.
Is there anything else our readers should know about Poofy Organics products or the company?
Poofy is completely dedicated to the environment as well. They use recycled and biodegradable packaging materials. They love what they do, and truly want to help change people’s lives with their products and sustainable practices. They are truly passionate about what they do on every level.
What inspires you?
I am inspired by children. I want to provide them with the very best. I want them to have a happier, healthier future. I truly feel like we, as a society, have gone down a destructive road and I want to help change that. I enjoy helping people create healthier lifestyles, and I want to help future generations live healthy lives!
