The phrase “You are what you eat” is over 90 years old and it needs to be revised.
While a healthy diet is an integral part in maintaining our overall health and well-being, we need to add: “You are what you apply to your skin.”
Why does what you put ON your skin matter just as much as what you put IN your body?
Better yet, there’s a difference between what we ingest vs. what we put on our skin. When we eat food, the enzymes in our saliva and stomach help break down the chemicals and flush them out. When we put something on our skin, it goes straight to our organs through our bloodstream and doesn’t filter out the toxins at all.
Take a walk down the skincare aisle of your local drugstore, pick up a product, and check the ingredients list. How confident are you at even pronouncing all those names? Our skin is the largest organ in our body, so why do we slather it with artificial and dangerous chemicals?
2 Stanford PhD chemists, Alana Corsten and Kayla Criado, took on this challenge to create a “Certified organic, gluten-free, vegan, and certified cruelty-free skincare solution for anyone who wouldn’t put anything on their skin they wouldn’t trust eating.”
With massive support and being picked up by the media, the project went viral, was endorsed by celebrities such as Emilia Clarke, and raised a record-breaking $1 million (for a healthcare product).
“we were shocked by the amount of support we received, and we believe we were able to deliver on their expectations. You can try our products at drifterorganics.com for a very affordable price, which was made possible by our great supporters!”
The creams retail between $20 and $28 from their website.
