    Fiery, whilst I 100% support your right (and anyone else's right) to chose the products you wish to use or not use on yourself and in your house (providing they are legal!!) and sincerely hope that they work for you, I reserve the right to question or challenge when such statements are made without providing reputable references.

    Australia has very stringent controls and standards regarding chemical manufacturing. That doesn't mean I advocate cupboards full of potentially hazardous potions used liberally for any and all occasions - just that common sense and established scientific research should be applied.

    This website dispels some common myths around chemical use in Australia. (FTR I'm not entirely comfortable with everything this website says but it provides links to the research it uses and if I had the time and inclination I would investigate further.)

    Again (and I can't emphasise this enough), I am not trying to be antagonistic, I just believe that statements need to be supported with links to research.

    I just wanted to quickly reply as I saw 'sodium lauryl sulphate' mentioned. I've only been casually reading along so sorry if this was mentioned.

    I'm HUGE on trying to avoid palm oil where I can and it's really hard as it often hides behind other names or because in Australia companies don't have to label they're using it, they can just call it 'vegetable oil' in things like foods. Anyways....

    Sodium lauryl sulphate is a chemical containing palm oil so if you can avoid it you're doing the orangutans (and many other animals) a huge favor! It can be sustainably sourced but it's pretty rare, there are some sites that list what companies either do not use palm oil or source it sustainably.

    I have a little list from Melbourne Zoo that I keep in my wallet. There's a shampoo brand in OZ that is actually fully palm oil free and is pretty cheap. I used to only find it a Woolworth's, I think it was called 'Australia organic care.' I'll quickly google to check on that! But it was pretty good.

    Here's the list: ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1420626010.263349.jpg

    I read a great article a couple months ago trying to dispel the rumor going around that sunscreen was dangerous, I'll try and find it for you .
