Happy Friday! A few posts ago, I wrote about how I’ve been learning so much about the harmful chemicals in most products that I was using. I wrote about the new shampoo and conditioner I’m in love with here. I’m still in love (if not, more in love) with both the shampoo and conditioner. I love the fact that the ingredients are nontoxic and contain no harmful chemicals. I also think it’s great how the first ingredient is organic aloe vera extract (rather than water like most shampoos contain).

My love for the Ava Anderson shampoo and conditioner prompted me to try some of the other nontoxic products in her amazing line. You can read about those products here.

Because I’m so passionate about spreading the word about toxic ingredients and the harmful effects they have on us, I decided to start my own business and become an Independent Ava Anderson Consultant. I decided to do this because it would give me the opportunity to help others identify harmful chemicals (while also helping to find other products that are safer to use).

This week I went through my old products, read labels, and tossed everything that had harmful ingredients. To my surprise, I had an entire large trash bag full of products.

Normally, I would buy things “a little here, a little there”, but because I hosted an avaHour (online), I was able to get an incredible discount and even some free products! I haven’t tried all of them yet, but here’s a review of the ones I have tried: (if you’d like to earn a nice discount and free products, consider hosting  your own avaHour…contact me and I’ll tell you how)

Make-up remover – I cannot tell you how many different brands of make-up removers I’ve tried in the past. Unfortunately, most of them were filled with toxic ingredients and didn’t work that well. This stuff is AMAZING! I was wearing waterproof eyeliner, which is normally extremely hard to get off. I used a couple of sprays on a cotton round and like magic it was all off! Take a look at the safe & natural ingredients: purified water (aqua), citrus aurantium dulcis (organic sweet orange) flower water, sodium cocoamphoacetate, yucca glauca (organic yucca) root extract, radish root ferment, carthamus tinctorius (safflower) oleosomes, citrus aurantium dulcis (organic sweet orange) peel oil

Bathroom & Hard Surface Cleaner – I used this on our granite kitchen countertops, bathroom countertops, and bathtub. It worked really well and it smells so good! Here are the safe ingredients:filtered water, coconut oil, glucoside (sugar from non-GMO US corn), fatty acids from plants, enzymes (protease, lipase, amylase, cellulase & urease), citric acid, and a signature Ava essential oil blend of spearmint, lavender & neem. It’s nice knowing that after you clean a surface (especially in the kitchen), you’re not leaving harmful chemicals behind on the countertops.

The other thing I love about the Ava Anderson product line is that the products are so versatile! Take a look here at all of the many uses of the avaHome line:

Exfoliator – I used the exfoliator before using the face cleanser. When I got out of the shower, my face was super soft! Like most of the products, you don’t have to use much at all. In fact, I only used a little less than the size of a dime. Here are the ingredients: barbadensis leaf juice (organic aloe), yucca glauca root extract (organic yucca), glyceryl stearate, prunus armeniaca (organic apricot) seed powder, butyrospermum parkii (organic shea butter), carthamus tinctorious (organic safflower) oleosome, citrus aurantium dulcis (organic orange) peel oil, punica granatum (organic pomegranate) seed oil, aspalathus linearis (organic rooibos) leaf extract, xanthan gum, vegetable glycerin (kosher, non-GMO), stearic acid (from non GMO coconut), citrus paradisi (organic pink grapefruit) essential oil, olive wax, raphanus sativus (radish) root extract

I cannot wait to try some of the other products! This is the first nontoxic product line that I’ve used where I’ve loved everything because it works so well. I cannot say enough about it.
