Every fall, I look forward to discovering new and exciting health products at the Canadian Health Food Association, CHFA East conference and trade show. In the photo you can see some of my faves!
I somehow missed featuring the shampoo on the tray above in my upcoming videos and wanted to mention it. A natural shampoo without harmful chemicals, that also leaves hair and scalp feeling great, is difficult to find. I loved this one – Carina Organics Pink Grapefruit Shampoo and Body Wash, which contains a natural essential oil scent that is divine! It is free of synethetics, parabens, dyes, soy, gluten and cruelty, is hypoallergenic and 100% biodegradable.
For more details about why these new products are so great, stay tuned for my upcoming videos!
Here are links to the products shown above, so you can see what else they have to offer:
