PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL EXFOLIATION WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

physical vs chemical 700x700

Exfoliation is extremely important for anti-aging and acne-prone skin. It also opens the pores, clears the skin of debris and provides an optimal condition for 100% penetration of products for optimal benefits.

Physical exfoliation involves manual motion, a circler scrubbing and/or rubbing on your face and body with products that contain beads or fine granules.

The benefits of physical exfoliation include.

  • Removal of top layer of dead skin
  • Renewal of fresh looking “new” skin
  • Act of massaging improves circulation
  • Smooths and polishes
  • Promotes cellular turnover

BE NATURAL ORGANICS has several physical exfoliation products for flawless skin.

Mother of Pearl Facial Scrub Fresh water pearl and bamboo powder for scrubbing away dead cells and natural clay to absorb toxins. You choose the pressure so extremely safe for sensitive skin.

Pomegranate Facial Scrub Jojoba beads provide a gentle scrub while the sweet almond oil’s antioxidants and fatty acids make skin glow, plump and refines the texture. Can be used daily.

Amaretto Body Scrub – Natural sugar polish’s your skin while removing dead surface cells and debris. Vitamin E and botanical oils softens and moisturizes the skin with a luxurious aroma for a calming spa like experience.

Chemical exfoliation works on a deeper level using 3 acids.

AHA Facial Wash – uses a whopping 10% Alpha Hydroxy Acid to destroy acne causing bacteria while possessing the ability to lighten skin discolorations and help smooth skin caused by acne and sun damage. This acne treatment is consistently one of our best sellers.

BHA Serum – The powerful blend of salicylic acids deeply penetrate and lifts congestion and clears clogged pores. Beta Hydroxy Acid is especially effective for those with acne-prone and oily skin. Its exfoliating properties deeply penetrate to lift stubborn debris, allowing fresh, radiant cells to emerge.

Daily Botanical Enzyme Peel – This is one of the best physical exfoliators available for both anti-aging and acne-prone benefits. Start with 1 to 2 times a week and add more as needed.

Enough is Enough!

I feel such a profound sadness over the current events that are dividing our country and  a sense of outrage over the horrendous act that killed George Floyd on May 25th that I felt I must speak out.

As a human being and especially a mother I cried tears of horror as the video played showing Mr. Floyd begging for his life, gasping for breath to no avail. I imagined his family watching, hoping for that knee to lift before it was too late, only to see another black man lose his life like many before him.

I thought to myself what is it going to take to stop this injustice from happening over and over again in the future? How do we and those in charge stop those sworn to protect residents no matter the color of their skin from being killed so easily as if they mean nothing, are nothing in the eyes of the jaded men and women on the force?

Our country is facing a huge and extraordinarily complex systemic race problem and although it seems that after all these years a solution could have been found, it still has not.

I do have a renewed sense of hope after seeing the anti-racism protesters banding together, all ages, nationalities, skin colors, marching, chanting, standing up and fighting for those that have been lost to an unjust, angry fearful system. Change must happen as persons of color deserve to live a safe, equal, prosperous, long life.

I believe the massive number of peaceful protesters all across the country are making a difference and shining a light on racism. 

I believe we all can improve our world by putting out love, respect, courage, trust and joyfulness. I carry those personal values within me and also throughout BE NATURAL ORGANICS.

I stand up for racial equality, I support the movement and pray for change.

A personal note from BNO’s founder, Joanne O’Donnell

memorial day imageI hope many of you are finding ways to enjoy and celebrate Memorial Day during this unusual time. I know it’s hard for families to be able to get together as we have in the past for picnics, boating, travel to visit family and friends etc. Although activities may have to be modified our patriotism and our gratitude does not.

I, just as many of you have family that chose to serve our country. I am immensely proud to say my daughter Michelle and my son in law Brian both made that decision. Being a single mom, I had concerns on the cost of putting my daughter through college. My daughter and son-in-law were both awarded military scholarships and graduated from Cornell University. My daughter spent 4 years in the navy helping to serve and protect our country. The wonderful experience and training she received prepared her for a great career! My son in law chose to make the military his career and loves it.

I am extremely grateful to the military for the assistance, training, and protection it provides its citizens. I support the Wounded Warrior Project. This organization helps vets navigate through the V.A. and helps those with PTSD, TBI and their families through Project Odyssey, health & wellness programs and more. It’s such a worthy charity, I encourage all our customers to check out the website and get involved if it moves you at https://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/

On Memorial Day, call a family member or friend in the military and thank them. Say a prayer for all those on active duty, injured, and those trying to adjust to transitioning back home to civilian life. Donate time and/or money to a military cause. On this day if you see someone in military dress, smile, say thank you for your service, and honor them with the recognition they deserve.

SURVIVING SELF-QUARANTINE FUN AND PRACTICAL IDEAS TO WARD OFF BOREDOM

things to do at home

We are all in the same situation right now so let’s make the best of it. Children will be bouncing off the walls and people, particularly seniors are more prone to depression without social interaction.

Gather the family for FaceTime chats with grandma and grandpa. Have them tell stories about their childhood to keep history and family ties alive.

If there is a birthday or holiday, send a gift through Amazon, etc. Call and tell them something special is coming but no opening until a designated date and time, it gives them anticipation and something to look forward to. Have the kids make birthday cards to read or show. Zoom during the time while they open it, have a birthday cake, light the candles and sing Happy Birthday! They feel included and you have cake for dessert!

Great time to organize! If you have kids, find some shoe or packing boxes, give them glue, stickers, wrapping paper, crayons, whatever you have on hand. Tell them to make their own special storage boxes for toys, video games, arts and crafts, anything they or you suggest. When they are done have them fill their special boxes, you see a cleaner room and they feel a sense of accomplishment. While they are busy, you get started organizing that closet or pantry you have been putting off. It’s a win-win.

Turn on some exercise videos from your collection or on cable. Your kids will have fun family exercising, burn off some energy and you will also get in your workout.

Teenage daughter? Ask her to show you some of her favorite fashion and make-up influencers. Both of you compile some make-up from your collections and follow the tips. Let her practice on you. You both may learn some new tricks while spending quality time together.

Plan a game night with the family. Gather some favorites to play, do classic charades with ideas written down by all of you or download some on your phone or iPad such as “Guess What Charades” Have fun!

Look online for recipes to make together, like DIY Kool Aid Lip Balm https://www.onecrazymom.com/diy-koolaid-lip-balm/

Chemical Sunscreens Versus Physical Sunscreens

sunscreen - blog header_1Nano’s are actually Nanoparticles that are being used in PHYSICAL sunscreens and have the power to cause large amounts of damage. Because nanos are so small, they can penetrate deep into your skin and also into your body and lungs via inhalation, posing many threats including possible organ damage. Studies have also revealed the development of cancer, endocrine reproductive disruption and DNA mutation in humans.

Just as nanos can affect humans it also disrupts our environment. With the super small size of nanos, they can infiltrate and survive in wastewater plants that run into our streams, rivers, and waterways that end up in the soil food is grown in. Our oceans and sea life are also affected by the nano interaction in seawater with UV light as it produces Hydrogen Peroxide, which has been shown to inhibit phytoplankton growth, a vital nutrient for reefs, its inhabitants, and many species of living coral.

Look on your sunscreen bottle, these chemicals have dangerous effects

  • Oxybenzone-hormone disruptor, skin reactions, absorption into breast milk, amniotic fluids, blood and urine
  • Avobenzone-can be toxic with chlorine, cause skin allergies and is a hormone disruptor
  • Octocrylene– Can cause harmful skin reactions, may cause free radicals which when exposed to UV can damage DNA

These chemicals are known to cause damage to both our bodies and our environment. The FDA is now calling for more testing on physical sunscreens and the ingredients not always fully listed by name, specifically the inactive ingredients, preservatives (methylisothiazolinone), and fillers that can also be harmful.

NO Nanoparticle and NO nasty chemicals.

The most natural, safe protection is Mineral, its ingredients Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, they are nano-particle free. Both are absorbed into the skin immediately for protection against the sun and then sit on the skin’s surface and physically prevent UV rays from penetrating your skin. They are also safe for our environment’

With this in mind, BNO’s Natural Sunscreen (tinted and tint free), has Zinc Oxide and additional natural ingredients to moisturize and nourish while protecting your skin with

  • Olive oil- Organic, fights free radicals, moisturizing
  • Jojoba Oil- Organic, natural humectant
  • Shea Butter- Natural, an emollient, high amounts of vitamin E

Our body needs the suns vitamin D for healthy bones, our immune system, and its mood boosting powers. However, remember to always protect your skin with sunscreen, hydration, and a great moisturizer. BNO has our Organic Sunscreen’s in tan, nude, and tint free plus a luxurious line of after sun moisturizers.

 

SAY NO TO NANOS!

sunscreen

Nano’s are actually Nanoparticles that are being used in sunscreens, moisturizers mainly for your face, anti-aging creams, mineral makeup, eye shadows, and mascara.

For such a tiny particle, 1/8000th the width of a human hair, nanos have the power to cause large amounts of damage. Because nanos are so small, they can penetrate deep into your skin and also into your body and lungs via inhalation, posing many threats including possible organ damage.

Be Natural Organics is very environmentally conscious and concerned with what goes into our air, ground, and water sources. With the super small size of nanos, they can infiltrate and survive in wastewater plants that run into our streams, rivers, and waterways that end up in the soil food is grown in. With this in mind, BNO’s Natural Sunscreen (tinted and no tint), has Zinc Oxide and additional natural ingredients to moisturize and nourish while protecting your skin with NO Nanoparticle chemicals.

The most natural, safe protection that is generally FDA approved is Mineral which is Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide and they are nano-particle free. Both are absorbed into the skin immediately for protection against the sun and then sit on the skin’s surface and physically prevent UV rays from penetrating your skin. Another benefit is that mineral sunscreens can be layered on top of other skin care products.

The most often used is Chemical, it allows UV absorption which then reacts to the chemicals from the sunscreen and can be absorbed into the bloodstream. Look on your sunscreen bottle, if you see oxybenzone, avobenzone, octocrylene and ecamsule, these chemicals are concerning.

Our body needs the suns vitamin D for healthy bones, our immune system, and its mood boosting powers. However, remember to always protect your skin with sunscreen, hydration, and a great moisturizer. Be Natural Organic  Sunscreen’s comes in tan, nude, and no tint plus a luxurious line of moisturizers and also used as a foundation.

SHOUT OUT TO MOTHERS AROUND THE WORLD YOU DESERVE A DAY THAT CELEBRATES YOU!

mothers day

With Mother’s Day approaching I felt compelled to celebrate all the moms around the world and how hard they work at being one. Women become mothers for all reasons, planned, unplanned, adoption, fostering, loss of the biological parent. Whatever the reason you chose to become a mother; it means that moving forward your life will never be the same and you really wouldn’t want it to be if it didn’t include that special human being you call your child.

Today’s “moms” may be duel parenting, may be a grandparent, or a single dad also being the mom. I do know that being a mother can be damn hard, exhausting, and very underappreciated. Rather a working mom, a work from home mom or stay at home mom, it is a never-ending workday. After you clock out then there’s cooking, cleaning, laundry, homework, multiple sports, clubs, music and dance lessons, shopping, bathing, feeding, paying bills, and running the household all on less sleep then needed, phew….. we must be superhuman.

Just imagine if all those were listed as job duties for a new position at a company you applied at, would you think twice and say to yourself no amount of money is worth all that! I know I would. There’s no raises in this position but there sure are bonuses; a sticky, sweet unexpected kiss, a hug and warm cuddle you never wanted to end, that beautiful smile with just a few teeth showing, the smell that was exclusively your child’s, that giggle and loud belly laugh that made you smile and tears well because you knew it would only last so long…..

So, to all the moms out there be proud of yourself, know you did the best that you possibly could loving, molding, and nurturing. Give yourself multiple pats on the back, celebrate, pamper, and love yourself; especially on this day because you all deserve it. HAPPY MOTHERS DAY.

Be Natural Organics uses the finest ingredients available for all of our products. We use organic, wild crafted and Co2 derived plant materials in crafting each product. These ingredient are essential in producing the finest grade oils, for optimal skin nourishment and repair.
