You know the saying, “Mother knows best” – well, these moms have been there, done that, and they’re ready to hook you up with insider info on hottest products in natural health, food, sports, fitness and beauty. This week’s topic: Natural Necessities
Q: Using eco-friendly products is important to me. I know MyChelle natural skincare products are good for my body—but are they also OK for the environment?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetitican Catie Wiggy responds:
MyChelle began with a passion as pure and natural as the Rocky Mountains. Founded in Colorado over 12 years ago, MyChelle Dermaceuticals’ singular obsession has been to create the most effective, nontoxic skin care products in the country. Today, our products deliver powerful, quick and visible results without using nasty ingredients or toxic chemicals.
Cleaning products that describe themselves as “gentle enough for baby” may sound wonderful when you’re pregnant or have a fragile newborn in your arms, but here’s an old-timer mom prediction for you: After suffering through your first projectile vomiting incident, your first instinct will be to leap for the strongest, industrial-strength cleaning agent you can find. Bleach, abrasive, harsh chemicals—whatever will blast those yucky germs into oblivion…bring it on.
The thing is, those kinds of products aren’t really kid-friendly. That’s why they have all of those poison control warnings on them, often in huge font with a toll-free hotline to call in case your child is exposed to their frightening ingredients.
Uh oh. Looks like a souvenir from tonight’s spaghetti dinner somehow made its way onto your brand new white shirt.
But fear not, my well-dressed friends. Vitacost.com has an impressive selection of safe and effective natural laundry products to keep your clothes looking and smelling as clean as the day you bought them – without polluting the planet in the process!

Ahhh, a day at the spa. We could all use one, and we certainly deserve one. But tight budgets and busy schedules often keep dreamy, pampering retreats out of reach.
