I need to share with you all, a brand I have been LOVING. It goes by the name of Live Clean. If you haven't heard about them, here is why you need to have their products in your home :
|| Their products are created and manufactured in Canada !
|| Good for the environment and waterways.
|| Plant based ingredients.
|| Reasonable prices.
|| Some products are even Vegan.
|| Not tested on animals.

You can find these products at Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart or Well.ca to name a few. Each place has slightly different pricing but it's extremely affordable and if there is something on the market which is natural, no harsh chemicals and affordable there's no excuse to be using soaps that are the complete opposite. Often you associate natural products with a hefty price tag but not Live Clean.

I am currently using this Bali Oil Nourishing Body Wash and it smells delicious, as if you're on a tropical vacation getaway! This particular product is vegan and 98% plant derived. This body wash has been my saviour with the harsh dry winter in Saskatchewan. It is extremely soothing and moisturizing with the coconut oil in it.
To make this product even better, the packaging is recyclable and all the ingredients are biodegradable! At just under $8 for 500ml, I think this is a great price! There are about 10 different kinds to pick from, so it's sure to attract just about everyone!

Now I need to talk about their Liquid Hand Soap. I have switched to only using these in my bathrooms! Again the price, $7 for 500ml, you can't go wrong. This product as well is 98% plant derived, biodegradable ingredients and smells just as good. This particular soap is great for those with dry hands.
Some of the ingredients that Live Clean do not include in their products are :
SLS / Sulfates : A chemical which is a known skin and eye irritant, toxic to marine life, it is polluting to the air quality during the manufacturing phase.
Phthalates : A chemical used to allow plastics to be more flexible. This has been linked to ADHD, asthma and many other disorders.
Parabens : A compound used as a preservatives to help prevent bacteria growth.
Silicone : Almost rubber like, can cause allergic reactions. It can create a barrier on the skin, which sounds good because you can lock in moisture, but at the same time it will trap dirt and bad oils on your skin.
Phosphates : Can stimulate the growth of algae in water, depleting oxygen levels for marine life. This can be found in many items including food, it can be connected to high blood pressure.
They have so many products to choose from including shampoo's, conditioners, oils and baby products! I challenge everyone of you to switch to Live Clean the next time your soaps and shampoo's run out and enjoy the quality product as well as knowing it will benefit the environment at the same time!
