A CUSTOMER EMAILED ME….
Hemorrhoids. There I said it. I used to laugh about this and think this was for old people. Well, I guess I am old now, as I now have them. Talk about painful and itchy.
So, I looked for some cream for relief and read the ingredients as I learned in your webinar. I was shocked. I put it down and went back home.
I remembered the post you wrote about the 3 things you should have in your medicine cabinet and I started to try Neemo.
I put some on a round cotton pad and tucked it in. WOW! It immediately helped to calm the pain down. It also stopped the itching. BUT, I didn’t have much left of Neemo. So I switched to the boo-boo stick. That worked good too, but the Neemo worked better because the boo boo stick didn’t spread out very well on the pad. I then ran out of that and switched to the Mom Balm. That was also a winner. It spread very easy and calmed it down as well. I feel it healing, but I will need to restock!
I can’t compare to the store brand, as I never used it. But these three worked well and I know they will not hurt me.
Keep up the great job! Love your posts.
What a great testimonial! I LOVE to hear about Pure Haven products and how people use them!
So me being me…I looked up a typical over the counter cream. Here is what I found:
Benzoic Acid, Butylated Hydroxyanisole, Corn Oil, Glycerin, Lanolin, Lanolin Alcohols, Methylparaben, Mineral Oil, Paraffin, Propylparaben, Purified Water, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Flower/Leaf Oil, Tocopherols Excipient, White Wax.
I looked up some of the ingredients on the www.EWG.org.
They rate ingredients as well (10 is the worst)
Petrolatum 75% - rated 4/10 on EWG
Propylparaben - rated 9/10 on EWG
Mineral Oil 1-3/10 on EWG - 14% - Petrolatum
Paraffin (more Petrolatum)
Methylparaben 3-4/10 on EWG
Questions? Want to host a webinar to learn about these toxins? Let’s connect.
If you’re using acne treatments, skin lighteners, or antiaging treatments that remove age spots, freckles, blemishes, and wrinkles, the answer to that question may very well be yes.
The poison we’re talking about is mercury, which is known to cause serious health concerns. According to an article published on the U.S. Food & Drug Administration website, the FDA doesn’t allow the use of mercury in drugs or cosmetics (except in rare cases where there are no other safe and effective preservatives available, which is not what’s happening with products like the ones mentioned above). Mercury-containing products are likely manufactured abroad and sold illegally in the United States, promoted online, on social media, and through apps.
The FDA article shares that when you use mercury-containing products, your own health is at risk, as well as your family members’ health. They could breathe in mercury vapors or become exposed by using washcloths or towels after you that have become contaminated.
Pregnant women, nursing babies, and young children are especially vulnerable. Mercury can cause harm to developing brains and nervous systems.
Mercury is not only found in personal care products, but in fish as well.
If you are eating fish, please have your blood levels tested for mercury as soon as possible. It is SO toxic.
Signs and symptoms of mercury poisoning include:
