What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear or see the word ‘organic’? To many of us, it translates into safe or even healthy, and rightfully so. With a more heightened awareness over the years regarding what we eat, what we put on our skin, and many other aspects of our lives, there has been a marked shift in the way we live our day to day lives and the items that we see as commodities.
Walking down and perusing the aisles at our favorite grocery store or even preferred store, one can see the many items under the ‘organic’ sections or products with labels and stickers saying that they are organic.
What seems like a painless switch to healthier products over our go to ones isn’t exactly a quick fix. The Environmental Working Group reports that terms such as ‘natural’, ‘organic’, ‘free of synthetics’, ‘nontoxic’, ‘hypoallergenic’, and ‘gentle’ are oftentimes misconstrued as automatically putting items in a safe zone, but that is not always the case. The EWG encourages consumers to thoroughly check and read the ingredients on the products that they purchase. Even though it might seem like a tedious task, the EWG’s Skin Deep database helps identify a myriad of less hazardous products.
Here at Tohfa Box, we are very careful in the products that we choose to carry. So much so, that we try the items that we carry in our Shoppe. Therefore, when you commence on your shopping experience with us, you can rest easy knowing that you are selecting from products that are curated to cater to your well being.
Below is a list of some of our favorite non-toxic items!
Masks that need to be mixed with water to be activated are some of our favorites. With this nifty mask, one can gently exfoliate and draw out impurities. The reasoning behind this is that clays are negatively charged and when activated with liquid, are able to attract and absorb the skin's positively charged impurities like a magnet. Who knew that clay was such an operative ingredient!
We love it when the men we adore can also reap the benefits of organic products. With organic products mainly being geared towards women at the start of the organic revolution, it is a breath of fresh air to see the increasing inclusion of men's products. With this soothing after shave, even men can enjoy the benefits that organic products allow for. With ingredients like witch hazel, aloe, and vitamin E, this dual astringent toner and hydrating mist prove to work overtime.
With toxins being a prime concern during pregnancy, women are on the lookout now more than ever for products that are going to be safe for mother and child alike. With ingredients such as raw shea butter, vitamin E, and lavender essential oil, expecting mothers can enjoy rubbing growing bellies with this organic belly balm.
Hailed as the best face oil, we are proud to say that we have tried this amazing oil and can't sing it's praises enough. This luxurious face oil is formulated with 22 of the world's most nutrient-rich botanicals that are both nourishing and restorative. This serum ups the ante big time with the Phyto Radiance Infusion, a 21 day process that gently infuses the powerful nutrients of whole plants into this magical serum.
Everything about this brand has us completely in love with every aspect of it. One of the newer launches is this Cloud Dew Oil-Free Gel Cream and we have a secret to share...we can't get enough of it. This ultra lightweight gel cream moisturizer infuses skin with three types of hyaluronic acid, glycerin, amino acids, and pineapple enzyme, amongst a bevy of other skin friendly ingredients to put your best face forward!
With trusty organic products that are genuinely what they say, one has more peace of mind knowing that what is being put on the skin is actually healthy. Leading a happy and healthy life leads to a life worth being celebrated through and through. And that we feel, is something worth smiling about.
