Poisoning Your Home?

Growing up, most of us learn to equate dirt with disease. A clean house is a healthy house, right? Maybe not! It all depends on what you’re using to clean.

This allows the chemicals in our hair care to not only effect these other areas, but also makes the overall exposure to them more profound and damaging.
