Let’s get proper into it. (& keep tuned for a particular code on the finish of the submit).
When my third son (I’ve three sons and a daughter) was a new child, he was discovered to have excessive ranges of aluminum and parabens (plastics) in his system. Seems, what I used to be placing on my physique with deodorants and physique lotions was coming into my system and in flip, his breast milk. That day, I researched selfmade deodorant recipes and saved a bowl of baking soda combined with coconut oil underneath my toilet sink.
Quick ahead six years: I owned a small health studio for girls and I made some lip balm and physique scrub as promotional objects for the gymnasium. These objects had been observed by the ladies on the studio and realizing I used to be additionally making my very own deodorant, they requested merchandise for themselves. They turned out to be the perfect take a look at marketplace for my deodorant and the merchandise developed into what’s now K’pure Naturals. Not making the merchandise in my kitchen, yow will discover us on-line and in over 300 retail shops throughout North America!
I’ve discovered lots within the twelve years since I first made clear merchandise for myself and my household. Right here’s what retains me utilizing and producing merchandise containing naturally-derived elements and important oils.
