GROW - tips for LiViNG! - Tip 002 - chemical use - soaps

Man, there are alot of "SMELLS" out there!

Have YOU ever considered what the effects of perfume/soap could be on yourself; and others?

Think about this - perfume and soaps are usually chemicals.

For an example only; lets use an old 'tried an true' soap - IVORY.
The commercials say that it gets you 'clean' ...right.

Think about this...doesnt water pretty much do the same thing?
If you get dirty in the yard...water can wash that dirt right off.

Too many people in this country have been convinced by corporations that they need to get chemicalized - to get a sense of being clean...when really, its only adding nonsense to your body (perfume does NOT = CLEAN)

From wikipedia - here are the ingredients in Ivory soap -


The Ivory soap bar (classic) had contained: sodium tallowate, sodium cocoate or sodium palm kernelate, water, sodium chloride, sodium silicate, magnesium sulfate, and fragrance.[6] The soap bar had a determined pH value: 9.5.[7]

New varieties of Ivory soap contain altered ingredients, such as in "Simply Ivory" (or "simplement ivory"): sodium tallowate and/or sodium palmate, water, sodium cocoate or sodium palm kernelate, glycerin, sodium chloride, fragrance, one or more of the following: coconut acid, palm kernel acid, tallow acid or palm acid, and tetrasodium EDTA.[3]


The compound was first described in 1935 by Ferdinand Munz, who prepared the compound from ethylenediamine and chloroacetic acid.[2] Today, EDTA is mainly synthesised from ethylenediamine (1,2-diaminoethane), formaldehyde, and sodium cyanide.[3] This route yields the sodium salt, which can be converted in a subsequent step into the acid forms:

In this way, about 80M kilograms are produced each year. Impurities cogenerated by this route include glycine and nitrilotriacetic acid; they arise from reactions of the ammonia coproduct.[4



So, now you tell me how THAT (the above) determins that you are clean? as opposed to just using water?

It seems to me that rather than cleaning OFF the 'dirty', its an application of chemicals and fragrance (of course; with the exception of the chelating ingredient...which can be drying AND/OR damaging).

I like zum bar - orange /patchouli - check out their ingredients:
Saponified 100% food grade olive, coconut, palm & castor oils, in a goat's milk base, with herbs, pure essential oils, mineral pigments and aloe.

We cant totally escape being chemicalized...but we DO have the choice to not be fooled by large corporations convincing us that we CLEAN via toxification.
