Safe Cleaning and Healthier Lungs!

There was a recent article in Balanced Living titled "Breathe Easy: Take Care of Your Lungs" by Mark Kuhar. In the article the following was stated: "...Besides exercise and avoiding dangerous environments, what elsse can you do for your lungs? ...There is a wide variety of non-toxic, family-safe cleaning products on the market that do not release noxious odors."

Many cleaners on the market have harmful chemicals that can easily cause damage to the body. Sodium Laureyl/Laureth Sulfate is a cheap filler used in many proudcts (shampoos, toothpastes, laundry and dish detergents). SLS causes suds but more importantly, has been linked to cancer and disrupts the endocrine system, affecting hormones.

Just because a product is labeled "green" or "natural" does not mean it is safe for the user or environment. I tell my customers to read the ingredients. If there are unknown items leave it on the shelf.

One customer I recently talked to mentioned they used a produce wash and it burned the top of their mouth. I told them it wss most likely due to the chemicals in the product. However, he bought the Vivebloom Produce Wash because it is carcinogen-free and all the ingredients he could pronounce.

Also, because Vivesan and Vivebloom are carcinogen-free and 100% powered by plants, our products release ZERO emissions into the environment!

Below, are a few links to help you in your quest for cleaning that takes you "Beyond Green." If you have any further questions, we would love to hear from you via phone, e-mail, or Social Media - @VivesanClean (FB and Twitter). Have a carcinogen-free clean!
