As October winds down and breast cancer month comes to an end, we want to make sure that the sentiment of the month stays on your radar.
Breast Cancer is one of the main reasons I started hellomellow. As a body mind healer, I work on clients undergoing all sorts of health challenges including cancer. Knowing that the skin is our body’s largest organ, and what goes on your body goes in your body started me on a quest to find products that would nourish my clients skin without giving their bodies any chemicals or toxins that their bodies would have to work to remove.
As I researched more about these unpronounceable names on the ingredients lists of the products I was using, I began to learn about parabens and the research that linked them to breast cancer. This was years back and whether or not the research was as shocking as it is today, it was enough information for me to think… if these toxic ingredients are repeatedly found in the breast tissue of breast cancer patients, why would we be putting this in our bodies?
Why not care about what goes on our bodies as much as what goes in our bodies? (Since it seems to me the research backs up this idea!) And this started me on the quest to use only food grade, nourishing ingredients on my skin and the skin of my clients. When I couldn’t find any… I made some.
It was amazing to me to see the effect my products had on my clients and then their friends and then their kids and so on. After years of hearing the stories of my products healing miscellaneous skin rashes and bumps and eczemas and you name it, I decided if they were helping so many people feel better I should create a way to get it to as many people as I could… and hellomellow was born.
I am so honored to use hellomellow as a way to work with other companies with similar visions and to support my beliefs in ways to heal the world. I am so flattered to have hellomellow chosen as Boarding 4 Breast Cancer’s affiliate body products line. Every purchase of our Balance line of products donates 5% to B4BC’s Survivorship program.
