I should asked with along with the shampoo/lotion question, but. shrug For sensitive skin and good coverage, ladies, what do you recommend? A friend urged me to try samples of "vegan cosmetics" and it made me break out horrendously! I thought,... (more)

I guess it depends on what you need or want to use. I enjoy wearing make up, whether it is paleo to wear make up or not, but I keep it light and natural. As I noted in your lotion question, I use Dr. Hauschka products for some of my skin care.... (more)

Ok, this is one primarily for the girls here, not that I mean to discriminate. ;) I've adapted pretty well to the paleo lifestyle over the past couple of months and have incorporated a no 'poo/soap shower routine that is finally showing great... (more)

I've been using several different types of mineral cosmetics for years. There are many small mineral cosmetics companies out there now, so you have to experiment a little to see what works for you. Most will send samples. I like J Lynne cosmetics... (more)

I have the opportunity to make a presentation for my college class on toxicity. Most likely none of the student know what true health is. I am going to talk to them about toxic house hold products, personal care products, water, medication, food... (more)

For me, it was weight loss. After years of toxic eating and horrible eating habits during college, I had gained over 15 kg and was feeling terrible about myself. Little did I know, that all of my GI problems (GERD, Gastritis, gas, etc) and extreme... (more)

Heey(: I'm a 15 y/o paleo dieter, and I'm trying to convice my mom to stop using canola oil - so I proposed we buy coconut oil instead. The problem is we bought it at a naturist drugstore, and I don't know if it is sold for cooking or for... (more)

I know cosmetics aren't technically considered "paleo," but I'm not willing to give them up. I was using 100% pure products for over two years, and just recently discovered that they are causing my skin (cheeks in particular) to break out. I've... (more)
