Organic Soap for Heavy Metal Detoxification
On our journey in Autism and health one of the important things we learned was how many chemicals we have in ever day products. It was truly amazing on how much toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis. Organic soap seemed to be a more healthier approach.
My son keeps longer hair and one of our challenges was keeping it clean and tangle-free. It’s a coin-toss daily to determine if he wants to take a shower, a bath or none at all. The process of quickly cleaning his body and hair was a challenge. Before we were educated it was a fast lather of shampoo then a healthy amount of conditioner to assist in the detangle. Being that he has a toxic overload and we need to chelate those it makes sense to avoid all other chemicals as well. More importantly the skin is the largest organ on a human. If you are spreading chemicals all over your skin it can be absorbed hence, entering the body’s system. Not good.
That led me to look high and low. One alternative that was recently debunked was Jessica’s alba’s “Honest Brand.” It’s been tested to show that it contains chemicals it claims it does not. This lead me to discover Dr. Bronner’s organic soap. Will an organic soap necessarily help in detoxification of heavy metals? Logically speaking no however, it helps that we are not adding to the system of an already overloaded child’s system.
Dr. Bronner’s Organic Soap
Dr. Bronner’s products carry an old-world family’s German-Jewish soapmaking tradition. Born in 1908 to a Jewish family that had been making soap since 1858, Emanuel Bronner was the third generation certified as a master soapmaker under the guild system of the time. In 1929, he brought his formulas for high-quality liquid and bar soaps to America, starting Dr. Bronner’s in its current form in 1948.
Their soaps are renowned for their quality, versatility and eco-friendliness, enjoyed a small but loyal following in the early years. In the late 1960’s soap sales started to explode, due to the unsurpassed ecological quality combined with Emanuel Bronner’s urgent message to realize transcendent unity across religious and ethnic divides. Word-of-mouth made Dr. Bronner’s the iconic organic soap of that era, and in the decades that followed the soaps spread into every health food store in the U.S. on the way to becoming the number-one-selling brand of natural soaps in North America.
Dr. Bronne’rs organic soap is USDA certified organic personal care products and they work on creating Fair Trade projects across the world that ensure fair and just treatment of farmers and workers, to creating a socially responsible workplace here in the U.S. That alone is great in itself.
What I like more is that Bronner’s organic soaps are found at many place and not just the Health Food store. I’ve seen them across the country in a lot of regular supermarkets which makes participating in a healthy lifestyle for my family easier. In September 2016 Bronner’s announced resignation from the organic trade association to redirect commitment to organic agriculture, increase of minimum wage, cannabis reform and animal welfare projects across the world.
So not only do I enjoy their products but their efforts to give back and keep the agriculture cleaner make your family just feel so much cleaner.
