Is a Purse just a Purse?

I recently took on a line that produces purses that are made from recycled tires, hubcaps and license plates. Who would of thought that the world could be so fashionable with recycled materials. These purses come in all shapes and sizes and their is something to fit everyones taste. I am proud to be carrying a purse that is recycled. At Madre Bello we pride ourselves on taking care of the enviroment and doing the little things that can change this world. If when your finished with something you recycle it to the salvation army, goodwill or make something new and useful out of it, like a handbag or a quilt. You are helping to keep our landfills clean. I tried to explain to some ladies at a meeting I was at last night that it doesnt have to cost a fortune to make little changes. That is why I love these purses . They are priced for the average consumer. Simple, elegant and timeless. You will want a few in your collection.

What is your skin eating?

It seems we are all on a fitness craze, running, working out, eating all the right foods, natural and organic, but what about the largest organ of our body? You’re skin.

When we apply lotions, massage oils, creams and other products to our skin we assume that they are healing the outside, however after lots of research we come to find that what we put on the outside actually reaches the inside to our bloodstream.

Why do you think the nicotine patch exist, the birth control patch. It is time we started looking at the back of the label when it comes to skincare.

Organic skincare or natural skincare, what is the difference? In some cases lots. Natural and organic products have some natural and organic ingredients and then they ruin it by using synthetic preservatives, parabens or other potentially harmful ingredients. These ingredients may be harmful to you or the environment. Parabens are thought to put estrogens into our skin and into the water system, which we then end up drinking.

Organic skincare products when properly produced will enhance your healthy lifestyle. They are slightly more expensive then most products on the supermarket shelf, however the others cost us in many other ways. You can find organic skincare products at these products are 100% all organic with ingredients such as Purified Rain or Glacier Water, Certified Organic Herbal Blend of Rosehip, Chamomile, Lavender, Horsetail herb, Marigold, Burdock, Organic Sunflower Oil, Grape Fruit Extract, Rosemary, Biodynamic Avocado Oil, Biodynamic Macadamia Oil, Organic Lotus Bean Gum, Australian Bush extracts of Kakadu Plum, Decyl Polygucose (plant sugar extract),Coco Glucose ( plant-sugar extract) Xantham Gum, Soy Protein, Whole Wheat Protein, Sucrose Cocate ( plant extract for body bounce), Vitamin B ( Panthenol), Jojoba oil, Biotin vitamin B7, Stinging Nettle, Citrus Extract Vitamin C, Beta Carotene/Vitamin A, Alpha Tocopherol/Vitamin E, Hydro-glycinate ( Earth-friendly mild plant based sugar extract preservative), essential oil of lavender & Canadian Wildcrafted Red Clover oil- Unscented Vegan Certified blend. All of these products are organic and great for you, your skin and the environment.
