Vida Glow - Beauty Cleanse Lemon & Lime 

Vida Glow’s Beauty Cleanse was created to alkalise the body and skin, as well as eliminate toxins. It adds an extra dose of highly bioavailable plant nutrients whilst cleansing to assist in detoxification. The skin is the largest organ of elimination, and daily intake of Beauty Cleanse during a structured healthy eating plan gives the skin support via an abundance of antioxidants and specific ingredients designed to assist the removal of acid and toxic build-up.

 

Beauty Cleanse not only targets the skin but also supports the colon, liver, small intestines, kidneys and the stomach - the major organs, which work hard during the cleansing process. It contains an array of vitamins, phytochemicals, alkalising, natural pre & probiotics and mineral-rich nutrients all derived from real, organic plant food.

Most conventional period pads are about 90% plastic. A plastic backing sheet, a plastic wrapping sheet and a plastic pouch! The pad itself often contains plasticizing materials such as polypropylene and polyethylene used to make plastic bags. In fact one pad can contain the equivalent of 4 plastic bags. Organyc pads contain Mater-Bi in the backing sheet, wrapping sheet and pouches. Derived from corn starch, it's naturally biodegradable and compostable. Our pads and liners are made from certified cotton, never plastic. Better for you and better for the environment. . . . #plasticfreejuly #organycau #organyc #organic #organicbeauty #health #natural #environment #cotton #plants #sustainable #sensitive #breathable #comfortable #absorbent #protection #recyclable #materbi #biodegradable #ecosystem #ecoperiod #hormones #fertility #cycle #menstrual #plasticfreeperiod
