What Non-toxic Products Maia Uses
One of the most frequent questions asked by readers and by clients is, “What products are actually in your bathroom?” Here’s what I’m using at the moment:
Pangea Organics Daytime Face Cream
Daytime Face Cream: Italian Red Mandarin with Rose by Pangea Organics. I hate to think that at 32 I already have “mature” skin, but this face cream has the right amount of hydration for me.
Nighttime Face Cream: Ultra-Rich Face & Body Butter by Tandi’s Naturals. I thought this was greasy when I first tried it, but now I love it. Incredibly, rubbing what feels like oil on my skin doesn’t result in breakouts. Instead, I wake up to skin that looks clear and hydrated.

I am new to the “Label Reading” world and I have several questions:
1. For a pregnant mama or a new baby, you read lots of information about the dangers of essential oils. However, when you look at EWG and other review sites, any product with fragrance is not reviewed well, and most of the highly reviewed items have EO for fragrance. I’ve noticed that some of the baby products such as California Baby have a EO that is listed on several reputable sites as having issues for pregnant most. (Calendula).
So I’m a bit confused by the toxicity issues for pregnant moms with EO’s / Fragrances. There just are not a lot of options for lotions/soaps/etc without either a fragrance or EO.
2. I’ve been looking at Noodle and Boo products which I’ve purchased many times for grandchildren. Now I’m really confused about the safety of these products. Any thoughts?
Can you please note the deodorant you use? I’ve tried a few but haven’t found “the one” yet.
Is Dr Bronner’s Cinnamon toothpaste considered as safe? I tried some by The Green Beaver, but I read some overwhelming information online. Every page I visit seems to say different things. Please advise.
Have you looked into / used 100% Pure products? They seem to be pretty nontoxic and use fruit pigments for their makeup colors.
Yes, I consider them Good Stuff although some people have expressed that the smells are overpowering and seem unlikely to be 100% essential-oil based.
reading some reviews on the toothpaste you use it looks like it may be a sham? Is this true? here is the link. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0066TS3VC/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B0066TS3VC&linkCode=as2&tag=gimthegoostu-20
