According to the Environmental Working Group,  the average American uses at least nine personal care products every day, each of which contains over 126 unique ingredients.  Unfortunately, many personal care and first aid products contain endocrine disrupting chemicals, suspected carcinogens and other chemicals which are linked to rising rates of diseases including obesity, diabetes, thyroid diseases, behavioral problems, cancers and more.

You absorb up to 60 percent of what you put on your skin, so the choices you make in your medicine cabinet really matter. Not only do natural alternatives allow you to avoid introducing toxicity into your body, they can also help solve skin problems, soothe skin allergies and keep skin looking healthy and youthful!

One of my favorite ways to support my clients in reaching optimal health is a home detox to shed toxicity, rebalance and return to a more natural way of living.  It is so rewarding to see the powerful health benefits that occur when you take some key steps to make your home, workplace, body and environment green and clean!

To guide you towards the healthiest options, I am always searching for the purest products which contain high-quality, safe and natural ingredients and really do their job without irritating the skin or creating allergic reactions!

If you suffer from allergies or skin conditions, have highly sensitive skin or simply want to avoid chemicals that can harm your health, now is the time for a green, clean medicine cabinet makeover!

Your Clean Green Medicine Cabinet Makeover: Avoid chemicals and choose soothing natural, gluten-free, vegan ingredients for natural first aid!

Fortunately, there are plenty of great alternatives to conventional first aid products. If you are looking to transform your medicine cabinet to more natural options, here are a few items you’ll want to consider. 

Petroleum-Jelly Alternative: AVO Jel, Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter A Clean and Green Medicine Cabinet Makeover for Natural First Aid #clean #green #eco #natural #naturalliving #nontoxic #ecoliving #minimalism #firstaid #personalcare #skincare #skin www.JenniferWeinbergMD.com

A jar of petroleum jelly is a stable in many medicine cabinets for multiple purposes, ranging from preventing blisters to healing chapped lips to protecting from chaffing. Petroleum is derived from oil refining

Unfortunately, petroleum jelly is a byproduct derived from oil refining so it is an unsustainable resource. Mineral oil cannot be metabolized by the human body and can accumulate in fat tissue.

While most commercial products are said to be refined to remove harmful components like hydrocarbons, I prefer more natural alternatives like coconut oil, cocoa butter or AVO Jel which are free of endocrine disrupting chemicals and other synthetic ingredients. AvoGel is a petroleum-free product which uses pure jellied avocado oil to act as a natural skin protectant. 

General Soothing Salve like Urban Shield or Calendula

When your skin itches or is irritated, a soothing slave is what you need. Look for an option that soothes irritation using natural botanical ingredients and has natural anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties.

Some of my favorites for skin issues like eczema, psoriasis, scrapes, general rashes or flaky irritated skin are calendula cream and Urban Shield. Calendula is derived from marigolds and has long been used to soothe skin itching and irritation ranging from subnburn to eczema. Avoid calendula if you have an allergy to ragweed, since both are members of the Aster (Compositae) family.

Urban Shield is a vegan petroleum-free oil blend combining avocado oil, neem, karanja, black seed, carrot seed oil and menthol.  Carrot seed oil has been traditionally used to nourish and rejuvenate the skin with carotenoids which have shown promise as photoprotectants in clinical, animal and cell culture studies. Black seed (nigella sativa) is naturally antifungal and antimicrobial as well haveing powerful anti-inflammatory properties. This gives it skin-healing benefits that may help conditions like eczema.

Antiseptic/Analgesic: Skin Aid

When dealing with scrapes, bites, burns or itching you may reach for an antiseptic or analgesic spray.

For this type of skin irritations, a chemical-free natural option is Skin Aid. This fast-acting spray contains an essential oil blend of blood orange, spearmint, clove, bergamot, myrrh, thyme, oregano, clary sage with healing avocado oil.
