I am an Occupational Therapist by education and day to day work - skin is important to health and day to day living. Everyday our skin - is exposed to good and bad things! From the stuff that we put on it - to the stuff that we are exposed to on our jobs, on a playground, in the air, on our farms.
There are several things you should know - that I know -
Our SKIN, remarkably thin and amazingly complex, is our body’s largest organ and its first line of defense for healing, safety and defense from living day to day.
Our skin cannot discriminate between synthetic and natural, or between harmful and beneficial, and may absorb harmful chemicals present in body care products. Our bodies are constantly exposed to synthetic chemicals in air, water and food--why add to the problem by applying synthetic products to your skin.
Just because it is recommended by a healthcare professional (doctor, nurse, therapist) doesn't make it safe.
Read your ingredients - and learn the INCI names (International Nomenclature Cosmetic Ingredient) are systematic names internationally recognized to identify cosmetic ingredients.
At Good Horse Scents natural and nourishing skin care products contain wholesome ingredients from nature, we aim to use nothing artificial, nothing synthetic, ingredients that you an trust. We truly strive to use the best that we can - locally and sustainably sourced and you can actually read the ingredients.
