What is hemp? While both hemp and marijuana are from the cannabis family, they differ entirely in function, cultivation, and application. Hemp is the low-THC alternative of cannabis and has been used to produce a wide array of products, including food, healthy dietary supplements, skin products, clothing and accessories, rope, bricks, and more. When it comes to hemp products, the possibilities seem to be unlimited.
Hemp seeds provide a rich plant source of digestible hemp protein and the essential fatty acids necessary for healthy human life. Hemp is GMO-free, gluten-free. What’s more, hemp can be grown naturally without pesticides and chemicals and is non-allergenic, containing:
- A significant source of vitamin E and iron
- Essential nutrients
- Super Omega-3 (SDA) and Super Omega-6 (GLA) that help metabolize fat
Parabens, Sulfate, and Antiperspirant-Free Products for Your Health and Wellness
Parabens, sulfates, and aluminum may be harmful to your body. Parabens are a group of preservatives used in many cosmetics to keep them fresh and germ-free. These substances are possibly linked to breast cancer after parabens were discovered in cancerous breast tissue samples. Parabens are also reported to mimic estrogen in the body, making it possible for these chemicals to cause hormone imbalances. While hormones are readily absorbed by your body and flushed out, the long-term risks of parabens are still being investigated.
Sulfates are cleansing agents, removing dirt and oil, and create lather in shampoos and soaps. Sulfates may be synthetic or natural like those contained in coconut or palm oils. Sulfates, such as sodium lauryl sulfate, can prematurely cleanse the dye from your hair and may irritate your eyes and skin.
Aluminum compounds are used in antiperspirants to prevent sweat ducts from releasing sweat to the surface of the skin. Antiperspirants containing aluminum chloride or aluminum chlorohydrate may mimic estrogen in the body, which also maybe linked to breast cancer. Studies are still ongoing about the dangers of these compounds. With no reliable conclusions about aluminum exposure, however, it maybe a good idea to avoid these substances.
