    not to mention just about any type of grass fed meat you can think of and a host of other things that fall nicely into the primal lifestyle.

      Many of the chemicals used in producst are known or probable carcinogens. Even in some "natural" or "organic" brands they still use dangerous chemcials and green washing techniques to make you believe they are healthy. Your only way to be sure that there is absolutely no dangerous chemicals in products is to have a third party organic seal of approval, like the USDA organic seal. ( Don't be fooled by "organic cosmetic standards" - these are a lesser standard, and still allow chemicals and chemical processes).

      DR. Bronner's definitely falls into this category, but if you are interested in a arger variety of products ( hair, body, oral, cosmetics, lotions, shaving gels etc.), and more luxurious products... check out the miessence range.. they are certified to organic food standards, so it is like eating organic food:

        As a person who has dealt with eczema, I can tell you that soap and alcohol cleansers are NOT the way to go. Alkaline soaps and alcohols dry the skin out and retard one of the most important functions of your skin--protection!


        The skin works best at a pH of 5.5; some specially-made cleansers are acidic in nature and maintain the body's natural pH.


        I personally like Seba-Med. It's expensive, and manufactured in Germany, but it's worth it. Johnson and Johnson's make a 5.5 pH version, but I don't believe it's sold in the US.


        I know the emphasis is on unprocessed and "clean" living, but aside from water, this is the only alternative I would use.

          Has anybody tried Juice Organics cleansers? It's not completely "organic" (has a fair share of strange ingredients) but my mother seems to really like the stuff. (6$/6oz. bottle)


          Shelby, coconut oil seems to work well for you? I have oily/acne-prone skin and am worried it wouldn't work for me. I tried the oil cleansing method with olive oil, but it was really a pain in the ass making sure my face was completely rinsed afterward. Do you use lotion?

            I swear by African Black soap and raw African Shea butter for an after shower moisturizer.

            The Black soap is made from coconut oil, cocoa pod ashes, plaintain skin ashes and palm oil. That's it! I LOVE It because it foams up really really well (something I find lacking in many other natural soaps.) PLUS it also doubles as a shampoo! Just wet your hair and rub the bar into your hair, lather, and rinse. It's amazing.


            Raw African Shea Butter is a multi-use skin moisturizer and hair conditioner. Due to the high vitamin content, it also doubles as a sunscreen and keeps the skin protected from wind and cold, too. It's great!

            Malie Products from Hawai'i are amazing also:

            The Koke'e Cream Soap is my favorite!
