- What is the purpose of this guide?
On a daily basis, we are surrounded by chemicals that are more or less harmful to your health. These products have become so common that we are no longer always wary. However, in cosmetics, soaps, children's products, household products and even in the walls and floors of our homes, many substances are present. Some of these substances are likely to cause irritation, may be sensitizers, endocrine disruptors or, more seriously, may contribute to the development of cancer. Long-term exposure to all of these toxic substances is a concern. The purpose of this guide is therefore to provide information on substances to avoid in everyday products, by proposing healthier alternatives available on the market and providing links to healthy do-it-yourself recipes.

No, the healthy alternatives proposed for the different categories are only suggestions for healthy and suitable products for as many people as possible.

Nevertheless, other equally healthy products exist, and we will be happy to discuss them with you.
