Our littles ;)

I have been even more aware lately, of just how much junk is in products that are made for little ones.  Recently  I did some research at a few of my local markets and stores that sell “natural” products for kids.  I looked at body wash, shampoo, lotions, diaper creams etc. It turns out that close to 80% of them STILL contained chemicals that were either unsafe or unrecognizable.  And these are the products that are supposed to be safer for our littles….geez louise…this is frustrating!  If you take a close look at the ingredients in regular products that are being sold in grocery & drug stores for little ones your eyes nearly catch on fire due to the hazardous ingredients!! But ya know, as much as I dislike it…I expect that…..it’s the ones that call themselves “safe” & “natural” and  lead folks on that get me.  How is one suppose to know whats what? How is one suppose to know that what they are slathering on their little is non toxic and safe???

I think the only thing we can do is RESEARCH. Talk to people who also do research. Link ourselves to networks of parents & peeps that seek the truth about whats in our beauty products, food, vitamins etc.  SHARE…. Share your info with everyone else. The more we talk about it, the more others will start to demand the truth & only accept products that are clean. Let’s give those green washers the squeeze out!! It’s not cool.  The reason we strive for natural clean products, is so we can keep our toxin loads down….especially for our littles ;) SO lets not except those “almost” natural & chemical free products….let’s settle for nothing less than the best!! I’m sure your little deserves it….I know mine does.


ITS HERE! Sweet Jebus Its here.

Yippity-dee! Our beautiful Kept hair product is in our hot little hands. And Imma telling ya it smells SOOOO good. Our creamsicle scented styling products are to die!

My momma, my bestie & I are all in lurv with Kept Revived Blow Dry Serum. But What is it you ask? Just that a Blow DRY serum. Soooo basically its a nice little serum that goes on before you blow dry. It feels light & seamless in your hair & creates volume but smooths like a heaver product would. It also gives your hair that protection it needs from heating tools.  Thats right…its MAGICAL!  Pretty much everything you ever needed in a pre blow dry product

Just one of MANY Organic fantastical hair preparations from Kept ;)

Oh and the best part IS…..its NON-Toxic….YAY for that & YAY for Kept………..GOODDAY.

 


Back in Action….

Hello Lovely Kept followers.

Its a been a while.  We have been super busy here. Preparing to launch our new product, having our very own small human (our baby boy Karras) and trying to enjoy our summer!

We have recently gotten our products all approved by health Canada and are currently being shipped from the formulators as we speak. All of us here at Kept are waiting so patientlyto get that product in our hands already!!

I have been looking around at many different “natural” product lines that are on the market right now and not to toot Kept’s horn but uh…..TOOT TOOT….We are one of very very VERY few that is completely chemical free, does not contain harsh preservatives and actually HAVE real Organic ingredients. Those of you who really know your stuff and truly care about putting the least amount of toxins on your body realize the importance of the above statements. Those of you that maybe don’t know too much about it?……Stick with us Kids…we got the 411 on what’s good, why its good and why the heck you NEED it!

Please stay tuned for our bad hair blog. I swear its coming soon and good Lord is it funny.

Ok y’all until next time…….Keep it Healthy and Keep you’self Kept

QUESTION OF THE MONTH

Q: WHY DOESN’T KEPT SHAMPOO SUDS UP LIKE MY REGULAR SHAMPOO?

A: Welllll….Our ingredients do not include Sulfates (thank goodness :) Sulfates are NOT our friends. These are known as “surfactants,” and are used as cleansing agents….the guy that creates the “foam up” that we are all used too.  Unfortunately, this foamy fellow is a chemical…..a chemical that can be responsible for eye, scalp & skin irritation; tangled, fuzzy hair with split ends; allergic reactions & liver toxicity! Even more unfriendly results of continued absorbtion of  sulfates are the mimicking of the hormone Estrogen. Too much estrogen = pms, male infertility, female cancers and extra chub around the middle…eeeks!

Soooo….Instead we use African Black Soap as our cleansing agent. It does suds up somewhat, but more importantly it cleans the hair & scalp safely & efficiently while restoring the natural PH balance.  This all natural soap can even relieve rashes, scalp irritations & soften up that rough skin & hair :)

African Black soap is made up of various leaves & bark. Contains goodies from plants such as banana trees, plantain skins, palm leaves, cocoa pods & Shea tree bark.  It is a very luxurious & moisturizing cleanser, as it also has Shea butter, coconut oil, palm oil and cocoa butter!

Kept uses ONLY fair trade African Black Soap straight from Western Africa.

And wait…..here it is!! Neato huh?
