This is likely one of the most frequently asked questions we all focus on in our community! Whether it be food, or products for the home or body, we look carefully to see what it is made with and how it was produced! Was the cow on pasture? Is the cheese raw? What kind of oil is used in the lotion and is it organic?
One of our community members recently asked:
When shopping, what is most important to look for: skincare/personal care/baby products made with certified organic ingredients, or the same products made with not certified organic, but just natural/safe/nontoxic ingredients, for a bit less money than those made with certified organic ingredients. For example, deodorant, lotion, diaper cream, etc. Thanks!
My recommendation is to purchase certified organic products if at all possible! There is a unique opportunity to do so at a discount September 1 – 3, with Poofy Organics’ Back to School Sale! Join us in a Facebook group to learn all the details and the possibility to receive daily prizes! Here is some background about my own experience:
I was introduced to Poofy Organics by Susie Zahratka when I asked for deodorant recommendations in one of our Facebook groups over a year ago. I ended up buying one of their deodorants, as well as a box full of other products because Susie offered free shipping on the first order as a Poofy Organics Guide. I have since enjoyed four more boxes! Susie has been a part of the Weston A. Price Foundation, Nourishing Our Children and Nourishing Ourselves communities for years as a chapter leader and active member and I trusted her initial recommendation for deodorant. I have since relied on her to guide me as I navigated the hundreds of products!
Take a look at the ingredients for the Poofy Organic;s Happy Teeth Tooth Powder which is certified organic, and one of my favorite products:
Organic Arrowroot Powder – used for thousands of years for overall mouth wellness
Organic Erythritol – natural cavity fighter and sweetens tooth powder
Organic Plantain Powder – tightens tissues and is soothing.
Organic Peppermint Powder – antibacterial provides relief and relaxation
Organic Aloe Vera Powder – known for its ability to heal and to soothe
Organic Dandelion Powder – helps to detox and heal, soothing
Organic Cinnamon Powder – Freshens breath and prevents tooth and gum disintegration. Great for the immune system
Organic Menthol – great for breath freshening and antibacterial
Organic Licorice Root – breath freshening, good for the entire system & tooth vitality
Aluminum-Free Baking Soda – whitens and freshens
Organic Essential Oils of Peppermint (Mentha piperita), Tea Tree (Melaleuca Alternifolia) and Spearmint (Mentha spicata) – breath freshening and oral vitality
The four ounce by volume jar of tooth powder contains at least a 6 month supply of tooth powder for one person. That’s only three dollars a month!
A little bit of herbal tooth powder goes a long way towards a refreshing and revitalizing tooth cleaner. Say goodbye to toothpaste. Once you try this product you will never want to go back to less potent alternatives.
When the opportunity came up to co-host a Poofy Organics party for this year’s Back to School Sale, I felt excited to introduce these products to more of our community members. I have enjoyed vitually every product I’ve ordered and look forward to exploring more of them. I will share personal favorites in the posts we publish on Facebook during the sale. Meanwhile, I want to share that some of the products have worked for me like no other products I’ve tried. I love the high quality of the ingredients which I think are amongst the cleanest and more pure on the market, the care and mindfulness in which they are made, the small family business, and the personalized shopping experience I’ve had with Susie’s support. I’ve asked her countless questions, and if she doesn’t know the answer, she finds it for me! I like that there are many categories of products such as baby care, body care, home care, facial and hair care, and cosmetics.
I like that I can buy both stain remover and mascara from the same company! I recommend this overview page to learn about Poofy Organics, including the video! I am grateful for their pioneering efforts and for the peace of mind I feel when I order from them, trusting the safety and quality of what I am using.
Beyond the Back to School discount of 15% that is being offered, Susie will offer free shipping to everyone who is ordering for the first time by refunding the shipping portion of your order. If you are already a customer, she will refund you either 50% or the entire shipping costs depending on how much you spend. In addition, you have thirty days to try the products and return them for another if they don’t work for you! I took advantage of this with a color swap and found that the company was very accommodating!
