Just as not all sugars are created equal, neither are all salts. The dangers of excessive salt intake – high blood pressure, heart trouble, reduced kidney function – have led to many cutting back enormously on salt. But you can still get the flavor that salt brings – as well as a host of added nutrients – by simply switching up your salt. You may have already heard of some of the benefits of pink sea salt, but this pretty seasoning is not the only one that can change the way you season.

Acne is a disease. I like to take it a step further and say that in some cases, it can be a totally manageable, if not completely preventable, disease. Some of us are born with better skin genes than others, for sure. But the same way the majority of the population can avoid obesity (a disease reaching epidemic levels across the globe right now) through exercise and healthy eating, acne can be managed and reversed, too. At Evolué, my natural beauty shop in Beverly Hills, Calif., I have helped many clients plagued by acne by teaching them daily exfoliating and balancing skin routines with natural products.

We never thought we would be making laundry detergent. But like a lot of things in life, necessity is the mother of invention. After my daughter was born, I fell in love with two things- my gorgeous baby and her gorgeous cloth diapers. However, my little one has eczema that was only made worse by the “baby” laundry detergent with it’s too-strong odor and harsh chemicals. I couldn’t wash my diapers in the stuff- nor did I want to- but I couldn’t find ANYTHING in the grocery store that didn’t cause my diapers to leak or ( unbelievably) stink even worse! Not to mention the negative ecological impact all those chemicals had on our environment! SO, as we all do I went online to purchase the premier cloth diaper detergent. I was so excited to use their products! Until,that is, I read the ingredients. Half of the label was vague, industrial, chemical sounding words that frankly- sounded just like the detergent I was running away from. When I contacted the companies, they refused to tell me what exactly was in their products. I am all for protecting your product’s formula- but this is my baby! What touches her more than her cloth diaper! I needed to know what was in the product I was buying. I was at an impasse. I had REALLY stinky diapers and a baby whose skin was not too happy about the detergent we were using. I had a decision to make: Give up cloth diapering or make my own detergent. I chose the latter. After months of research and lots of laundry, I came up with a concoction that is safe for my babies tender skin, safe for my cloth diapers, and ecologically friendly. I began sharing the detergents with friends, family, and other cloth diapering Mamas. They all raved about how clean their diapers and clothes were and encouraged me to go into business. Opportunity knocks only so many times before it moves on to someone who will listen, so I decided to listen to all my laundry detergent lovers. With the help of my family and tester/snuggler extraordinaire, Ruby Grace, Ruby Moon Natural Laundry was born. Look at that gorgeous baby! I can't think of a better reason to make our families and the Earth a little healthier!
