Try These Locally Made, Toxin-Free Skincare and Cleaning Products
Pure Haven creates toxin-free personal care and cleaning products in its Johnston-based manufacturing facility.
Are the personal care and cleaning products we use in our everyday lives really safe? Current scientific research continues to prove that there are harmful ingredients in our products – hello, Johnson and Johnson lawsuits – but Pure Haven, based in Johnston, is creating products that are free of harmful chemicals. The 100-percent-toxin-free items are made in small batches using certified organic ingredients when possible, and they are environmentally sustainable and cruelty-free.
“The average woman is exposed to 168 harmful toxins before she leaves the bathroom in the morning,” says Pure Haven CEO Bruce Jensen. “The FDA regulates everything that goes in your body, but if it’s on your skin, it’s a free for all out there.” We pay attention to the ingredients in our food, so we should also learn to pay attention to what’s listed on our personal care products, which are absorbed through the body’s largest organ: our skin. Make a difference just by changing your deodorant or shampoo. “We will not compromise or put a single harmful ingredient in our products,” Jensen says. More than 5,000 consultants across the nation direct sell Pure Haven, which is also available for purchase on the website. purehaven.com
