Reading labels can be tricky. As we gain more knowledge about the dangers sitting on the grocery store shelves, we are trying to make better, healthier decisions for ourselves and for our families. I’ve been doing this for a few years now, so here are some quick pointers that I would love to pass on to you as you learn how to search for safe health and beauty care.
Don’t take for granted the front of the product when it says “Made With...” because that typically means that they have used just enough of the good stuff to get by, but that product is usually loaded with the ingredients you are trying to avoid.
This is true with everything from food to your health and beauty products.
Know the ingredients you are trying to avoid so that you can spot it quickly. For instance, when I am looking for a great all natural lotion, I see what they are offering on the front of the bottle, but I turn it over and start reading the ingredients, and even though I don’t understand all of those ingredients, I know that I want to avoid the most common dangerous chemicals like propylene glycol and dimethicone, so I look for them immediately.
You don’t have to be a great scholar or have 3 degrees in your back pocket to be able to muddle through these seemingly complicated labels. Making wiser choices does take a bit of research on your part, yes, but it is not as difficult as we sometimes make it out to be. Sometimes it’s as easy as turning over a product. If you know what you want to avoid, you will begin spotting those ingredients right away.
Wading through those isles can be difficult, but with a few quick tips and a little bit of research under your belt, you can make healthier, wiser choices for you and your family, leading you to a fantastic shopping experience.
