2018 Convention fun and new products!

 2018 Convention fun and new products!
Many amazing products were introduced at The 2018 YL Convention this year! Spf 50, Acne Treatment, new essential oils, Einkorn products, a new diffuser (yes!), and more all natural Savvy Mineral makeup! Oh, yes. I can't forget the awesome tasting MightyPro pre and probiotic for kids (ahem... I am getting it for myself as well). 

This was my third convention and each year has been so amazing! Visiting the Mona Farm was my favorite this year. Getting to see how the Seed to Seal process works was quite spectacular! You truly experience the planting, cultivating, distillation and extraction, testing and bottling process. This is so amazing since Young Living is the only company that has strict standards, testing and protocols to ensure the quality of their products. The process is quite impressive, reassuring and confirms that Young Living is the only company for my family and I. Science to back up the quality is important for nerds like me!

If you have any questions about the new products let me know!

ALL Natural Savvy Mineral Makeup!

ALL Natural Savvy Mineral Makeup!
Did you know that Young Living has a mineral makeup line? Savvy Mineral makeup is toxin free and ALL Natural. The products do not have any toxic Parabens, Bismuth or Talc that are known to be hormone disruptors and health hazards

The average woman puts over 500 chemicals per day on her body. It is believed that our skin absorbs 60-70% of any topical products we use. Why not give your makeup a makeover and swap them out for their non-toxic counterparts? We encourage you to run your current cosmetics through the EWG's Skin Deep Database or the Think Dirty App and see where they rank.

Let's talk about three common toxic substances that are found in most commercial cosmetics. Chances are, these things are in your makeup bag right now. *There are WAY more than 3 that we're worried about. But we won't go over all of them here*

 Parabens are chemicals that have been used since the 1950s to prevent bacteria growth and act as a preservative in deodorants, lotions, lipsticks, shampoos, scrubs, and more. Parabens can mimic estrogen and act as potential hormone (endocrine) system disruptors in the body’s cells. Parabens have been found present in breast tumors and are possibly linked to breast cancer.

Talc is a mineral substance made up of mainly magnesium, silicon and oxygen used in a variety of cosmetic and personal care products such as baby powder, body and shower products, lotions, feminine hygiene products, eyeshadow, foundation, lipstick, deodorants and face masks. Some talc may contain the known carcinogen asbestos, therefore it should be avoided in powders and other personal care products.

Bismuth Oxychloride is a naturally occurring heavy element found in nickel, tin and silver that’s primarily used to manufacture metal by-products. It’s used in cosmetics because it has a distinct shimmery, pearlescent appearance and a fine white powder texture that adheres well to the skin. Many cosmetic companies use bismuth because it hides flaws, adds a radiant glow to the face and is a dirt-cheap filler! It also has binding qualities, so the make-up will “stick” to your skin and last all day.
What may surprise you even more is that bismuth resembles ARSENIC chemically, yet it is commonly found in many cosmetics.
Many women will experience itchiness when wearing products containing bismuth, most noticeably when they sweat. This can often lead to nasty rashes and severe acne. Also, we can’t forget Bismuth is also akin to arsenic. If you’ve been wearing mineral makeup, you may be experiencing irritation or breakouts due to the Bismuth in this makeup!

Wow!! Did you all know that most of those commercial cosmetics have these toxic ingredients??

Savvy Mineral Makeup has all natural ingredients and amazing coverage for all types of skin! I love the foundation, bronzer and blush... oh and the eyeshadows too.  Young Living has put together an AWESOME Savvy Starter Kit to get you going on the natural makeup journey.
