David Servan-Schreiber, MD, PhD outlines everyday household products to avoid in his book Anticancer, A New Way of Life. He indicates we should avoid common cleaning products such as liquid detergents, disinfectants, toilet bowl sanitizers with alkylphenols (nonoxynol, octoxynol, nonylphenol, octylphenol, etc.) and replace these products with green or European Ecolabel products. Or replace with white vinegar (for counters and floors), baking soda, or white soap.
Vermont Soap Organics – Liquid Sunshine Organic Multipurpose Non-toxic Cleaner: Citrus scented NonToxic Cleaner (NTC). This is a specially formulated and powerful multi-use cleanser that is safe and mild on YOU! Made from saponified organic coconut, olive and jojoba oils, essential oils, organic aloe vera and rosemary extract. Works best in warm to hot water. Liquid Sunshine contains no Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or other detergents, alcohols, d-limonene, artificial colors, fragrances, or preservatives. This is a multi-purpose cleaning concentrate made from Castile Liquid Soap and a special blend of essential oils. NTC is of special benefit to chemically sensitive and immune system impaired individuals. The most sensitive will see the most dramatic results. Psoriasis, eczema and dermatitis sufferers often react to laundry, dish and other common cleaning products. It is not uncommon to find people who are itchy or irritated wherever fabric rubs against them. Irritations at cuffs, collars, thighs and elbows may be a sign that laundry products are implicated. Anyone with itchy skin may be helped by washing their clothes in NTC. Replaces fabric softener, whiteners, stain removers and dryer sheets for added savings.
Most chemicals in our daily products have NOT been tested. Unlike pharmaceuticals or pesticides, industrial chemicals do not have to be tested before they are put on the market. Vermont Soap Organics will replace all of your cleaning products and reduce clutter!
