Several months ago, I was asked to participate on a panel during the Conscious Life Expo in Los Angeles. The subject was toxins. I had the opportunity to introduce my book, (The Pure Cure) which is a complete guide to freeing your life from dangerous toxins. My opening remarks are recorded in this video that was featured on the Natural News Website this month.
Every time I share the story of why I wrote the book, I am reminded of how grateful I am for the Sunrider commitment to quality and non-toxic ingredients. Toxins have invaded every aspect of our modern lifestyle. Beyond pesticides and air & water pollution, toxins have now found their way into the building materials that are used to construct our homes, the fabrics we wear, the materials we cook and eat with, the solutions we use to clean our homes and bodies, numerous medical and dental procedures—not to mention the drugs themselves—and even our electronic technology. Sadly, it’s hard to go anywhere or do anything without exposure to a wide variety of toxins. That’s why I appreciate the entire Sunrider line of products.
Sometimes we get so focused on the philosophy of regeneration (Nourish, Balance, & Cleanse) which is the backbone of the Sunrider program, that we forget about the incredible line of non-toxic personal care products offered – or the non-toxic cleaning products. For over 20 years, I have used nothing but these products. I wouldn’t dream of using a commercial brand of shampoo, toothpaste, lotion or cosmetics. And I haven’t had toxic cleaning products in my home for as long as I can remember. I simply refuse to put toxic products “in”, “on”, or “around” my body.
The following are the opening paragraphs from the chapter in my book, The Pure Cure, on personal care products:
“A 2004 survey found that an average person in the United States uses nine different personal care products every day—introducing about 126 different chemicals into their body. Applying products such as lotions, deodorants, moisturizers, fragrances, lipstick, and shampoos is really the same thing as ingesting these products through your skin. They are carried to your bloodstream even though they do not go through the digestive system. A certain way to expose yourself to hundreds of toxins over your lifetime is to use mainstream personal care products.
Many of the chemicals in personal care products are synthetic petrochemicals. They serve as solvents, plasticizers, preservatives, antimicrobials, dyes, and bonding agents. Because they are not natural, the body has no designated pathway for their elimination. No matter how small the amount, many of these chemicals are toxic; many mimic hormones in tiny amounts, and many accumulate with daily use. Recent efforts by consumer groups and many agencies in Europe have shed more light on what has been a hidden source of toxic exposure for many years. This research is just beginning, but the initial consensus is that the personal care and cosmetics industries are in need of a huge makeover.”
The Kandesn Cosmetic line includes a full spectrum of facial foundations (liquid and powder) in a variety of shades for every skin tone. Also available are concealers, blushes, eyeshadows, eyeliners and mascaras; lipstick, lip gloss, lip liner and nail polish for every outfit or occasion—even brushes and compacts. The Kandesn line includes shampoos, conditioners, styling gel, body lotions, soaps & cleansing gels, astringent, bath salts, an exfoliating masque, massage oil and parfum. Each of these products nourishes your skin, hair and nails with vitamins and herbal extracts to provide long-lasting beauty and radiance. . . all without petroleum, animal products, mineral oil, lead, phthalates, toluene, and other common toxins found in personal care products. Why would you look further than the Sunrider catalog for any of these items?
Oi-Lin Skin Care is top of the line special treatment skin care focusing on sensitive and older skin. Replenishing gels and emulsions in this product line contain antioxidants and emollients that hydrate, rebuild, and tighten facial skin, reducing pores, absorbing excess oil, and drawing out impurities. Want to reduce wrinkles and fine lines? Oi-Lin skin care includes everything from a clay mask to a refining and lifting cream for soft and radiant skin – no matter what your age. Need protection from the sun? Oi-Lin has four sun protection products to screen out UVA and UVB rays; never greasy and full of deep moisturizing ingredients. It doesn’t get any better!
Dr. Chen Skin Care for men. Yes, men deserve their own line of skin care, beginning with a smooth shave that hydrates their skin rather than drying it out. The Dr Chen men’s line includes After Shave, Deep Moisture Lotion, Warm Facial Scrub and Hand and Body Lotion. Men ought to have radiant skin too (women love it).
Sun Smile is the dental care line. Herbal Toothpaste, Herbal Whitening Gel (with natural enzymes for whitening), Refresher Drops (rather than alcohol-based mouthwash), and SunSmile Tabs with vitamins and bioflavonoids for fresh breath all day. No fluoride, No sodium laurel sulfate, No sugar or saccharin, No alcohols, and No artificial flavors in these dental products!
What about deodorant? SunSmile Herbal Deodorant is a fresh, non-toxic, naturally-fragranced deodorant without aluminum – so you’ll feel safe and confident all day long. It is a blessing to have all these personal care items at your fingertips every day.
The following is the opening paragraph from the chapter in my book on cleaning solutions:
“Household cleaning agents are the number one source of toxins in the home—the vast majority of them contain not one but an abundance of toxic chemicals. These products are absorbed through the skin, inhaled into the lungs, and ingested as chemical residues that remain after dishes and other household items have been washed. Most cleaning products today contain petroleum-based surfactants and solvents. These ingredients have been linked to reproductive disorders, neurological problems, and cancer. Many of them have not been thoroughly tested for their impact on human health, nor have they been tested for their impact on the environment. Unfortunately, approximately five hundred thousand tons of liquid cleaners are washed down U.S. drains every year.”
Sunrider has got your bases covered when it comes to safe and effective cleaners. Rather than have a different cleaner for every cleaning task, why not have one or two versatile cleaning products that do it all? That’s exactly what Sunrider provides.
Sunrider’s SunBright cleaners are the only cleaners I have used in my home for many years. SunBright Household SuperClean is a multi-task cleaner with grease-cutting action that does it all—safely and efficiently. I use it in the dishwasher, on floors and countertops—even carpets. It works for nearly everything and saves me buying lots of other cleaners.
And don’t forget to wash your fruits and vegetables. SunSmile Fruit and Vegetable Rinse removes waxy coatings, oily substances and other undesirable substances (like surface pesticides) from your fresh fruit and vegetables—it’s made of a bio-degradable surfactant derived from corn starch and corn oil. Have you got plenty on hand?
In the laundry room, I use SunBright Bleach (without chlorine). It’s color-safe for most fabrics and doesn’t pollute the environment. It works for all my gentle fabrics as well as regular laundry.
Remember that ALL of the Sunrider products are concentrated, including the personal care and cleaning products. For example, while the SunSmile toothpaste may cost more, you only need a tiny amount. One tube lasts 3-5 times longer than a mainstream brand. The same is true of the lotions and shampoo – and the cleaning products. They are concentrated and when mixed with water, they go a VERY long way. In the end, I believe they are more cost effective. Another thing to remember is that with Sunrider, you are buying from your own store! Each time you purchase, you support yourself; you benefit in so many ways.
Stay non-toxic. Keep toxins out of your home (and your body) by using Sunrider’s personal care and cleaning products. You won’t be sorry.
