We popped into Tamimi and noticed there was a big display of KISS MY FACE products. I am so happy that supermarkets here are starting to sell more products that are suitable for vegans, environmentally friendly, paraben and aluminium free and are not tested on animals. Besides Tamimi, you can find Natures Gate products in Lulu and Juice Organics toiletries at Biobest.
Out of all the products that you may use daily, there are two products that I would urge you to change immediately. Firstly, ensure your toothpaste is fluoride free. Click here to read more about fluoride. Secondly, check your deodorant. If your deodorant contains aluminum or parabens, then again get rid of it. Aluminum has been linked to breast cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. Parabens are used as preservative and have been found in breast cancer tissue. Click here to read about parabens.
KISS MY FACE do use the naturally occurring mineral Potassium Alum in their deodorants. According to their website, there is a difference between Aluminum and Alum.
Although this natural mineral does contain the element Aluminum, it is not in a form that is absorbable by the human body. Most chemical aluminum compounds are in a form that allows the aluminum to become free as a positively charged particle.
Potassium alum molecules have a negative ionic charge, making it unable to pass through the cell wall. THEY ARE NOT ABSORBED. Alum and Aluminum are two different substances, with distinct chemical signatures. They possess different chemical properties which create different chemical attributes.
KISS MY FACE products are also not tested on animals. Most of their products are suitable for vegans – only the following are not suitable for vegans –
– Olive & Honey Soap (contains Honey)
– Honey & Calendula Moisturizer (contains Honey)
- Scrub/Masque (contains Honey)
– All Night Creme (contains Beeswax)
– Hot Spots (contains Beeswax)
– Organic Lip Balms (contains Beeswax)
– Peaches & Creme 8% AHA- (Contains Lactic Acid)
– 3-Way Color-(contains Beeswax)
