My friends Adrienne and Amanda (who just lost 10 lbs on her 24 Day Challenge- whoop whoop!) recently introduced me to Ava Anderson products. Amanda has a daughter with asthma (her story is below) and she is really passionate about non-toxic products in the home. She encouraged me to watch a documentary on Netflix called The Human Experiment…and it was very enlightening. I highly encourage you to check it out- it was super interesting and thought provoking. There are so many chemicals that are coming in to our country on a daily basis completely unregulated. Chemicals that are BANNED in other countries. SOMETHING has to be contributing to the growing cases of cancer, ADD/ADHD, mental illness, infertility, autism…and after looking into it a little more, I truly think our high exposure to so many chemicals may be the culprit.
I learned some similar things at a seminar I went to a while back (I wrote about it here) and switched to some “green” products, but I became especially conscious of the products I was using when I was pregnant. I recently started using some Ava products in our home and am really happy with them. My favorites are the sunscreen and bug spray (both of which are REALLY tough to find non-toxic & I feel much better using these on my babies), the baby wash, and the cleaning products.
Here is a little more from my friend Amanda, and you’re more than welcome to reach out to her if you have questions. She has been a great resource for me.
Hi everyone! My name is Amanda and I am an Independent Consultant for Ava Anderson NonToxic.
At Ava Anderson, our mission is to educate others on harmful chemicals in personal care and home care products; while also providing a safer alternative. I started my Ava business in February of this year for two reasons.
1. I didn’t know much about this toxic issue until someone shared it with me. I knew there must be many out there (just like me) who didn’t or don’t know either. For me, it is about helping others with current health issues, but also about teaching others about prevention. Not just changing what we eat, but also changing what we apply to our skin - what we apply to our skin goes straight into our blood stream and our body has no way to detoxify.
2. I absolutely love Ava Anderson products. My daughter who is 3 years old has been battling with asthma since she was 3 months old. Her Pulmonologist recommended that I start researching about nontoxic options for her. Long storing short, I found Ava Anderson NonToxic through a friend and my daughter has went from four different asthma medications to one. I changed her laundry detergent, shampoo, body wash, lotion, toothpaste, and all our home cleaning products to Ava Anderson and the changes in her have been amazing.
“The association between persistent wheezing and prenatal exposure to household cleaning chemicals was still evident among these children when they reached 7 years of age. The respiratory effects seem to have persisted throughout childhood, which raises the possibility that they could be lifelong.”
Below is a link to one of my favorite articles about “greenwashing”. Please take a moment to read it – its super eye opening.
Also, here is a list of Ava’s top ingredients to avoid.
