Organic Personal Care Market Expected at $15.98 Billion by 2020

November 10th, 2014

In a recent article entitled, Organic personal care market likely to post double-digit annual growth to 2020, by Simon Pitman, we learn that “most global regions are expected to post near double-digit annual growth in organic personal care over the next six years,” according to a new market research report. Grand View Research said the global market is slated to grow from approximately $8.20 billion in 2013 to approximately $15.98 billion by the year 2020, showing annual growth rates between nine and 10 percent across Asia, Europe and North America.Grand View Research believes that most of the growth is being driven primarily by increasing consumer awareness of organic products and product innovation.

Herbalix (www.Herbalix.com) is seeing growth in the organics marketeplace as well. In the past, personal care products for body cleansing primarily included  soap, body washes and  scrubs. Today, modern technologies are more scientific such as the company’s skin purging therapies which are of great interest to the medical community.

Of biggest concern are the commercial deodorants/antiperspirants that contain any type of aluminum, alum, petroleum or propylene glycol, which can lead to the buildup of chemicals under the arms. This can often not only result in irritation, but can also cause hygiene problems, or worse. Antiperspirants may leave a residual of alum salts in the underarm, and over a short period of time undetermined DNA damage might occur under the arms.

There is one unique product from Herbalix that can help eliminate any bad chemicals from our bodies — the Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant™.  It has been formulated to cleanse away buildup of unhealthy chemicals inside the body, and to release waste fluids. This in turn encourages healthy lymphatic flow, and absorbs all types of aluminums.  The bonus is that this process encourages a reduction in daytime odors.

An organic non-aluminum deodorant, the popular Herbalix Nighttime Detox Cleansing Deodorant™ offers an exceptional cleanse while it also deodorizes while you sleep. Daytime deodorants typically work during the day to regulate and absorb odors. Herbalix deodorants are all made with certified organic ingredients and no synthetic chemicals or aluminums.

Herbalix is seeing growth as well, with particular interest among medical practitioners who are purchasing and reselling the company’s skin purging detox products to patients in need.

The Impact of Ridding the Body of Aluminum via Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Crème

April 21st, 2014

Did you know that your bloodstream can absorb whatever toxic chemicals you put on your body? If you were to even try to count toxic ingredients in cosmetic and personal care products, it would be overwhelming to find that about one in eight of the 82,000 ingredients used in personal care and cosmetic products have been listed as hazardous. This includes Aluminum, reproductive toxins, endocrine disruptors, carcinogens, and pesticides. Why do people continue to use these products given that they cause such a high risk to our health?

Aluminum The Impact of Ridding the Body of Aluminum via Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Crème

Aluminum.

Aluminum has cancer-causing properties. New research says that Aluminum has cancer-causing properties, even though it is still considered by the so-called health authorities as perfectly acceptable to eat, apply under the arms as an antiperspirant and to inject into the body of a child as a vaccine adjuvant.

However, according to a recent study published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry there were increased levels of aluminum in non-invasively collected nipple aspirate fluids from 19 breast cancer patients who were tested against 16 healthy control subjects.

Herbalix Restoratives (http://www.herbalix.com) has discovered a new insight into the knowledge of breast behavior stemming from the company’s clinical trial (WIRB #IRB00000533) entitled, “Impact of Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant® in Conjunction with Sentinel Breast Crème™ on Obstruent Salt Fluids in Breasts” which was conducted in the United States in 2013. The purpose of this trial was to monitor lymphatic flow patterns in breasts of women with fibrous cystic conditions. and to provide validation in how the Herbalix line of skin chelation detox products cleanse and unclog any lymphatic pathways. The purpose was also to observe emunctory waste, circulation, and lymph flow.

Results were from sequential thermal imaging that recorded, identified and evaluated pattern changes in each breast during the course of the clinical trial. When reviewing thermography images during the study researchers observed what appear to be influences extending from external or seemingly unrelated factors which up to this time had not been linked or associated with breast congestion.

Contributors such as antiperspirants mixed metal earrings, metals in dental work, , crystal style deodorants, and even body piercing, may disrupt and congest the breast’s ability to effectively and efficiently transfer cellular waste thru the underarm or skin in the form of sweat.

The Herbalix Nighttime Detox Cream can be used all over the body. It’s excellent for breast, neck, stomach, groin, as well as the bottom of the feet as a topical detox. HerbalixNighttimeDetoxCreme The Impact of Ridding the Body of Aluminum via Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Crème

Additional features and benefits of the non-aluminum deodorant are as follows:
• Clinically tested
• Made with safe, botanical, chelating herbs
• Safe, effective, convenient
• Weekly maintenance program for cleansing and wellness
• Resolves asymmetric drainage in underarms

How does it work? You will apply the product for 30 nights initially– as most people have lifetime of toxic accumulation built up in their bodies, and it takes time to detox it all. Apply at bedtime. The monthly maintenance program will help counterbalance the alum as it enters the body in the future from multiple sources.

Don’t be surprised if you smell while detoxing. Some users will experience a temporary sensory reaction caused by what is exiting the body but for many sweating simply reveals an odor while the body is cleansing. After the initial 30-night cleanse, odors can be controlled with periodic application of the detox deodorant and use of a non suppressive day time deodorant.

Misconceptions About Non-Aluminum Deodorants

December 14th, 2010

According to Dr. Christophe Exley, “There is no difference in ‘safety’ between antiperspirants made of aluminium chlorohydrate (and related salts) and those made of alum (potassium aluminum sulphate), the so-called crystal ‘natural’ products.” He also confirms, “We know from research that aluminum applied under the arm appears in the urine, so it does permeate through the skin.”*

There is a considerable amount of ambiguous and misleading information regarding the compounds Potassium alum and Ammonium alum when used in ‘natural’ products, particularly in relationship to their use in deodorants. Possibly due to misunderstanding or maybe just marketing, many people believe that neither are actually components of aluminum and thus constitute an aluminum-free deodorant. A couple of other misconceptions include the fact that the molecule has a different charge and that it is also too big to be absorbed.

Here is what is true:

1.      The alum in crystal deodorants is either Potassium alum or Ammonium alum — both alums are aluminum in that they are potassium or ammonium salts of aluminum sulphate.

2.       Potassium alum and Ammonium alum used in crystal deodorants are compounds that dissociate/break down with water and/or sweat and will be absorbed under the arm if applied. According to Dr. Exely, “the evidence we have is that a very small proportion of applied Al, probably <0.01 will be absorbed into the bloodstream.”

3.      Once dissolved in the aqueous solution (sweat) the molecule is no longer too big to penetrate the skin.  The aluminum frees from the potassium and exhibits the actions of aluminum and potassium exhibits the actions of potassium. When these alums dissolve they form their constituent parts as was indicated above. The Al3+(aq) could reprecipitate, for example in sweat ducts, as aluminum hydroxide, the form in which the Al is absorbed and enters the bloodstream is not known.

4.      Aluminum bio-accumulates so small amounts do add up and is implicated in a variety of diseased states.

5.      The aluminum charge can change but it still can be absorbed. Some Al will remain as monomeric charged forms while other might form small particles of aluminum hydroxide with little or no charge.

In addition to the confusion about crystal deodorants being natural and aluminum-free, it may prove true that many are neither. “In recent years, the crystal deodorant market has become increasingly saturated with artificial potassium alum and ammonium alum made from synthesizing aluminum hydroxide with sulfuric acid,” according to Verdan, makers of private label crystal deodorants.

When making your deodorant choice, you may want to begin with Herbalix Restoratives™ Nighttime Detox Deodorant to remove any aluminums that may have collected under your arms.  Compliment Detox Deodorant with one of the organic Daytime Deodorants from the company.
