Newly launched, the awards aim to highlight the very best non-toxic products and businesses in Australia. Emily Fletcher is the Editor of My Non-Toxic Tribe & the founder of the Australian Non-Toxic Awards. With
a background in science and an interest in healthy living, Emily
started a blog when her daughter Isabella, was just four months old.
Like so many others, she soon realised that not all personal care
products are made equal. In fact most products are 100% synthetic
and potentially toxic or irritating to the skin. Winners to be announced in August.
Realising that the use of chemicals like bleach, formaldehyde, propyl & butyl parabens, synthetic alcohols & colours, dyes & preservatives, are causing widespread issues for consumer health & the environment, does leave many people confused as to why these chemicals are permitted for use without mandatory testing for human health & safety? But, this is simply not how chemicals are regulated. Government authorities act after reports have been well documented. It is up to consumers to report adverse health issues to the TGA.
Australia's first and only event showcasing the best Free From and
Allergy Free products has arrived. This is the place to be this July at
Melbourne's Convention Centre and in March next year at the Sydney Show
Ground. According to the Murdoch Children's Research Institute, Australia has the highest rates of infant food intolerances and allergies world-wide. As many as 1 in every 10 children can expect to experience
food intolerances at a very young age. Once an allergy or intolerance is triggered, the effects can be life-long.
