Chapped Skin’s All-Season Cure

Alright my friends… here’s a product you shouldn’t live without!  Norwex’s Shea Butter is fabulous for severely dry skin including: hands, feet, elbows, cuticles, scalp, and lips.  It’s all natural and organic ingredients include Avocado Oil as well as Vitamin E.

Harsh environmental elements such as the sun, wind, heat and cold can dry your skin.  Norwex Shea Butter is your much needed moisturizer.  Your skin will feel nourished and be protected against the elements as it soaks up this incredible moisturizing product!

What I also think is fabulous, are the ingredients which are not found in the bottle.  The Ecocert-certified Organic Shea Butter is free from:

  • GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms)
  • Parabens
  • Phenoxyethanol
  • Nanoparticles
  • Silicone
  • PEG (Polyethylene Glycol)
  • Synthetic perfumes and dyes
  • Animal-derived ingredients

Do you have a family member or friend with fly-away hair?  This product is also an excellent balm for taming dry or frizzy hair.

This product feels firm when removed from the jar, simply massage it into your hand to warm it up prior to use.

Did you know?

People have appreciated the healing properties of Shea Butter for centuries.  Its history can be traced back to ancient Egypt, where it was used to protect the hair and skin against the fierce effects of the sun and hot, dry desert winds.  It is derived from the nut of the Shea tree and melts at body temperature.

For those who are enduring cold weather for the entire winter (as many of us are), the cool temperatures and dry winter air are guaranteed to challenge our skin, leaving us with cracked hands and sore lips.  Not surprisingly our hands are one of the first parts of our bodies to show signs of aging.  You can combat the winter effects by soothing your hands with Shea Butter.  It’s a perfect year-round remedy!

**Allergy Alert:  Contains oil from the Shea Nut

The Norwex  Hair Turban: a Must-Have

The Norwex Hair Turban: a Must-Have

Regardless of where my travels take me… the Norwex Hair Turban is always packed.

When my girls were young, I would use the turban to dry their hair after each swimming lesson… in turn, they would all share the same turban as they were being dressed.    It was remarkable how they all left the pool with dry shirts.  Previously, I had used a regular towel to do the job, but it just wasn’t up to the task; their long hair would make their shirts soaking wet.

Now that our daughters are older, it became apparent we each needed our own turban!  Now no one enters the washroom to shower without bringing it along.  It’s become a staple in our home!

Drying your hair can be tiresome and time-consuming, especially on those days when you’re in a hurry.  Over-drying can cause your hair to lose its lustre, form brittle/split ends, or even cause breakage.  Plus, every minute you use your blow dryer increases your utility bill.

Simply wear the Norwex Hair Turban for 10 minutes after bathing and it will absorb almost 70% of the water from your hair.  Saves you time, hair damage and money!

The lightweight turban is quickly wrapped on and will not fall off.   The superior microfiber has Baclock™ agent , which goes to work to self-purify and inhibit odors from bacteria, mold and mildew growth within the cloth.

TIPS:

  • Flip your head upside down.
  • With the turban button at the back, tuck your hair into the turban.
  • Twist and loop over hair & fasten the button.
  • For ultra-shiny hair, once a week apply a deep conditioner to your wet hair.  Wrap it up in your Norwex Turban.  After 20 minutes, remove the turban and rinse out the conditioner.
  • Give the Norwex Turban to your friends or family members with long hair…it is the BEST gift!!

Did you know?  If you use a 1500-watt hair dryer for 10 minutes a day, at 10 cents per kilowatt hour, your utility bill will increase by approximately $9 per year.

One of my hosts commented to me that she was not interested in receiving the Hair Turban as part of her hosting package of free products.  She said she already owned a different brand of hair turban.  I encouraged her to simply give the Turban away as a gift, as that particular portion of the hosting package was predetermined by head office.  About 6 weeks later, it was November, she was attending another show that had been booked as a result of her own party.  Her order that evening consisted of 6 more turbans!  I just had to ask why.  She said that she had used the Norwex Turban she received and felt it should go the on “Oprah’s Must Have List”.  That year all of her friends received one for Christmas!

Yes, it’s that good!!  Try it, you will love it too!

How “Micro” is the fiber?

How “Micro” is the fiber?

Getting all of the surfaces in your home as clean as possible, as quickly as possible, can be challenging.  In addition, many of today’s popular cleaners contain harsh chemicals.  One would assume that since they are sold in our local stores that they were tested and are safe to use.

I was shocked to learn that; “About 80,000 new chemicals have been introduced into the environment in the last 50 years.  Sadly, only about 200 of these have ever been assessed for their impact on human health.”   Bjorn Nicolaisen (co-founder of Norwex)

When first introduced to Norwex, I was intrigued and excited, but my husband was the skeptic.   Hearing that Norwex EnviroCloths could clean the surfaces in my home without the need for additional chemical cleaning products was foreign to me. On top of that, the claim that I could clean my home in a quarter of the time seemed too good to be true.  But, I loved a clean home and was more than willing to remove the chemical cleaning products from where I was raising my young family.

My first thoughts included, What’s the difference between Norwex EnviroCloths and the cloths sold at the dollar store?

What differentiates the two is how “micro” the fibers in the Norwex cloth are.  The cloths available at your local store generally have a fiber size of approximately 1/6 the size of a human hair while the EnviroCloth fibers are 1/200th the diameter of a human hair.  It is how “micro” the fibers are that determines the cleaning ability of your cloth.  If we were to completely unravel an EnviroCloth, the 2.9 million meters of microfiber would reach all the way from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada right down to the Gulf of Mexico!

As incredible as that is, there is still more cleaning ability contained within the cloth!  The Envirocloth has BacLock™ in the cloth – micro silver antibacterial agent – that goes to work to self-purify and inhibit odors from bacteria, mold and mildew growth within the cloth.  This self-purification process ensures the cloth is ready to use again within 24 hours.

The Norwex Microfiber has the ability to remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface when following the proper care and use instructions.  The super-absorbent cloths pick up and trap everything that was on the surface until you rinse it out.

Our family was totally sold on the Norwex product collection when we learned the cloths were already being used to clean hospitals.  It was this simple; if these cloths cleaned to a level high enough to pass the stringent testing required to be used at the hospital, they certainly were good enough for our home!

Key Benefits:

  • Cuts cleaning time by up to 75% by using only water.
  • No need for harmful chemicals.
  • Saves money by using only water.
  • Eliminates the need for paper towels, creating less waste.
  • Used them dry for dusting, it creates static electricity that lifts the smallest particles of dust and dirt up into the cloth and prevents them from resettling on the surfaces.

Did You Know?

  • Norwex Microfiber products are created in state-of-the-art factories with optimal working conditions.  Check out my posts about China.
  • Most paper towels are bleached and then patterned with dyes.  Drying your hands with them can leave your skin rough and cracked.

Warranty:

  • Two Year Warranty
  • 60-Day Money Back Guarantee

As a leader, I was very selective in naming our Team.  My group of consultants are located throughout North America are called:  “The Solution Team.”  Norwex is the solution!  You’ll clean safely, quickly and thoroughly, using super-absorbent EnviroCloths.  You’ll save time, money and the environment by using only water to clean your home.  You will reduce landfill waste, prevent chemicals from getting into our waterways and protect your family’s health as you minimize dust, allergens and chemicals in your home!

Dying To Look Good!

Dying To Look Good!

Do you own a handbag or two?  Do you go shopping now and then to update your closet to keep up your look fresh?  Here’s a question for you….  what will you wear front and center for the rest of your life?  Your beautiful face!!  Are you investing in the future to maintain that ‘look’ as well?  Let’s take a look at what quality skin care really means as it’s a great investment that can I guarantee you will never regret.

I take great pride in the products I sell.  With confidence I provide my family and friends safe product that will give them the great results they deserve. Because Norwex offers such an array of body care products, there’s something for everyone.

My daughters and I absolutely love the Mediterranean Moisture Aloe Vera Face & Neck Gel which we use twice a day as a toner.  It’s applied after washing our faces with the Body Pack cloths.  For my girls, these products are the perfect combination of a natural cleanser and a wonderfully light moisturizer that keeps their teenage skin healthy.  As for myself, I am a huge advocate of the Naturally Timeless Set. Who doesn’t want to fight the signs of aging?

Norwex has taken skin care to the next level with an exciting breakthrough which focuses on the natural, rejuvenating benefits of a rare apple.

The Swiss apple, Uttwiler Spätlauber, is descendant of a seedling planted in the middle of the 18th century. It is well-recognized for its ability to be stored for long periods without shriveling, exemplifying its longevity virtue.  Rich in phytonutrients and proteins, the apple’s unique ingredients are incorporated into the Naturally Timeless skin care line which offers:

  • Firming Face Serum contains Apple Stem Cells, Multi Peptides and Sea Algae to visibly firm and smooth your skin.
  • Radiant Eye Cream contains an extract from a Persian Silk Tree to reduce signs of dark circles, fine lines and under eye puffiness.  Includes Apple Stem Cells, Multi-peptides and plant based moisturizers to help re-hydrate the delicate tissues around your eyes.
  • Anti-Gravity Night Cream  contains a hydrating blend of essential plant oils, Apple Stem Cells, Shea Butter and plant peptides to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  Also contains Sea Algae Extract to rejuvenate your skin at the cellular level overnight.
  • Day Cream contains Apple Stem Cells , precious plant oils and Shea Butter to defend against wrinkles, seal in moisture and boost the radiance of your skin.

This unique offering is currently one of the most pioneering and innovative breakthroughs in skin care development across the globe.

Aside from providing remarkable results, knowing that the products I am applying to my body daily are natural and not laden with ingredients linked to potential health concerns leaves me feeling good both inside and out.  Norwex is one of the few North American companies certified by Ecocert; a company that began in France who sets high standards for natural and organic cosmetic products made in Europe.  They set the benchmark for all to achieve, assuring that the products they approve are being made from renewable resources using environmentally friendly manufacturing methods. Check out Norwex’s other body care certifications here!

Prior to discovering Norwex, many of the products I was using contained “the Dirty Dozen” (learn more about that here!)  However, some products are better than others. To see what’s in your daily skin-care routine, click here.

Keep Allergens and Pollutants Outside

Keep Allergens and Pollutants Outside

What is the best kind of dirt?  The kind that stays outside!!  I’m Dutch, I was taught to dust… even when I couldn’t even find any.  Our homes are our sanctuary and truly the only environment we can control.  

There’s nothing I love more than entertaining at our home; we are blessed to have many nephews and nieces that have moved into our city to attend university. They are always welcome to come for a warm meal and family time.  With friends coming and going as well, we have a busy home!

Entry mats are a stylish way to keep dirt and allergens from traveling throughout your home.  Norwex has launched a new Entry Mat for your home this fall, thirsty microfiber and polypropylene bristles and all. These features will trap the dirt at the door, as 85% of contaminants are brought into our homes in the first four steps.  The industrial strength rubber backing will hold it in place!

Here’s a few other ways you can prevent unwanted pollutants from entering your home:

1. First and foremost, your mat is your first line of defense. If you wish, you can even keep one just outside your door to wipe your shoes off on, and one inside your door to soak up the remaining moisture from your shoes. Just make sure you’re vacuuming/laundering your mat about once a week to keep it doing its job efficiently!

2. Create a “no-shoes-past-the-mat” policy, simply remove muddy footwear BEFORE reaching the entryway floor. I know some people who have placed a bench nearby to make this easier, my family has adopted the shoe rack system to keep our shoes organized and minimize unnecessary clean-up!

3. Paw prints making a mess? Keep a Norwex EnviroCloth or hang a Dusting Mitt handy at your back door where you let the dogs (or cats) in to readily wipe their furry paws and prevent any messy situations. Nobody likes trying to get mud out of their carpets.

A couple handy suggestions:

  • This mat is the perfect size for your RV.  With the non-slip rubber backing it will hold in place and absorb unwanted moisture.
  • Do you have a pool or hot tub in the back yard?  Place this mat at the door and you’ll appreciate its absorbancy.

Already loving the new Norwex entry mat? We are too! Try out the Norwex Rubber Brush to keep it clean between laundering, or run over your mat with a hand held vacuum.

Did You Know?

  • The soles of your shoes are a major source of transferring chemicals and pesticides into your home.  In fact, most of the grime in our homes originated elsewhere, the bulk of it coming in unnoticed on shoes that often don’t appear to be either muddy or dirty.
  • A good quality entry mat is essential, it will remove much of the contaminants that otherwise would find their way inside your home.
  • The right entry mat can also reduce the time you spend cleaning, it should be about the same width as the door.
  • With unwanted debris, chemicals and other residue from lawn equipment and automobiles, garages and public restrooms on our footwear, we all track unwanted filth into our homes.
