Detox your Personal Products

By The Honey Pot Company

Detox your Personal Products

“Detox,” a word that we all hear all the time. Detox juices, detox diets, detox retreats...and the list goes on. We know it’s important, but what does it actually mean? Simply put, it’s short for detoxification, which is the removal or elimination of toxic substances. We are all surrounded by toxic chemicals every day and know that this can wreak havoc on our bodies and health. With so many different product options out there knowing what to choose can feel overwhelming. The first step is being aware of this. Making small changes, starting with yourself, is a great place to start when transitioning to clean hygiene products! Below are a few healthier alternatives to help you make a switch and clean up your personal products.

It’s a bit ironic, but the makeup items we use to “beautify” our faces often contain all kinds of artificial, harmful chemicals ranging from parabens to formaldehyde. That lengthening mascara you love could contain carcinogenic (AKA: cancer causing) carbon-based products like coal-tar. Cosmetics are not well regulated, so the next time you go to swipe on some highlighter, mascara or lipstick reach for clean beauty products from an organic brand you can trust like RMS Beauty, W3LL People and Kosas.

When it comes to any personal product, the word ‘fragrance’ in the ingredients is pretty much a code word for unidentified and mystery chemicals. Switch your fragrance-filled body products for natural alternatives such as organic coconut, argan or rose oils. For those times when you do need to freshen up fast, spray some of our refreshing panty spray anywhere from your armpits to your feet. Available in both lavender and jasmine, our spray utilizes the naturally magic aroma of lavender and jasmine mixed with minerals to keep you healthy and smelling good.

The nastiest of toxins can also be lurking in your sexy time products. Lube, condoms and even sex toys have all been known to contain phthalates and parabens, chemicals that are known to disrupt hormones and the endocrine system potentially causing cancer, fertility problems and more. Major turn-off. That’s why we created our moisturizing water-based lubricant with no added parabens, sulfates or artificial fragrances. It’s safe to use for any type of intimate play, so you can get it on without worry.

After any kind of sexual activity, it’s a good idea to clean your honeypot and any toys with our feminine wash to keep your vulva hydrated and flushed. Our vaginal wash formula is made with naturally-derived, herbal ingredients.    

Our skin is our largest organ and anything we put on it is absorbed into the bloodstream. Defend your skin and body with healthier alternatives and toxic-free products and get into the practice of regular hot Epsom salt baths, a trip to the sauna and dry brushing to routinely aid in the detoxification of your body.
