The 3 Tenets of V is For Voodoo's All Natural Body Products
Think about this. When you eat something it goes into your digestive system. It then goes to your cells via your bloodstream. Likewise, when you put something onto your skin it is absorbed into your bloodstream and taken to your cells. This is how things like steroid creams and muscle rubs work. No matter how something goes into your body it all ends up in the same place.
OK, your skin doesn’t let everything in. Also, there are rules that outline what is safe to use. But, just because a rule says something is safe doesn't make it true. These rules are often recalled. Aspartame, Yaz. . . anyone? Besides, even small exposure to harmful things add up over time and can create big problems. A death of a thousand cuts is a very real thing.
There are safety concerns surrounding some common ingredients used in body care products. Parabens and SLSs are good examples. Most of these ingredients are filler. They make products cheaper. Some of these questionable components act as preservatives. Others only add cosmetic benefits to the product. Ingredients in body care products should benefit you, not the bar of soap! V is For Voodoo is passionate that if an ingredient is not benefiting you it shouldn't be in product.
This leads me to the second tenet we follow at V is For Voodoo.
V is For Voodoo has a holistic philosophy to body care products. First off, we use great care when choosing our ingredients. In fact, we choose nothing but magical ingredients. Plants!
Plants are completely magical! This is why all our products are completely plant based. Did you know that plants produce countless phytochemicals? A single plant can contain hundreds, if not thousands of them.
Plants are creating their own magic potions. When used in its entirety, magical things happen. Sure, we can isolate and synthesize single components out of these combinations. We have the technology. This is how we make most of our medications, like Aspirin. When we isolate these components, they are less effective than when used in the whole combination. Here's an analogy; celery and gumbo. When included in gumbo celery is powerful. Celery without gumbo is just useless. . . and evil. That's only an opinion.
Nature is the master craftsman at creating magical combinations. This is why V is For Voodoo doesn't use synthesized components or derivatives. You can pronounce everything on our labels because use only holistic ingredients! Man cannot create the same powerful combinations nature can. Why mess with perfection?
Testimonial time! As a professional wig and makeup artist I have many opportunities to torture my skin. We use a lot of chemicals in this industry. . . everyday. I spent long hours covered in rubbing alcohol, acetone, hairspray, prosthetic adhesive, removers, and god knows what else. Soaps and lotions made with synthetic chemicals and fillers didn't fix anything. All natural body products made with holistic, quality ingredients did.
It is our mission to produce high quality body care products using holistic ingredients. Every part of these products benefit the user. Our all natural body care products do more than look pretty or smell nice. Make no mistake, they do both of these. Our products are nourishing and hydrating. When used regularly you will notice a difference!
This leads to our third and final tenet:
One aspect of do no harm means the safety of our customers. Natural does not mean safe. In fact some of the chemicals plants produce are very harmful. We have a very healthy respect for plants. The safety for our customers is our first priority. Thus, NAHA, AIA, and IFRA ethics, safety standards, and guidelines are always followed. Plants are powerful. They should be respected!
The second aspect of do no harm is sustainability. Our all-natural body products are sustainably manufactured and packaged. Thus all ingredients we use are sustainably sourced from ethical suppliers. We never use at risk or endangered plants. Also, all packaging is reusable and recyclable. We never use plastics. Furthermore, we are cruelty free. The only animals our products are ever tested on are consenting human friends and family.
Combined, these three tenets mean:

* Sustainably manufactured and packaged
