The benefits of a natural shampoo for your children

Bridging the gap between our incredibly popular Baby Wash and Shampoo and our Organic Care Shampoo and Conditioner is our Fun Time Conditioning Shampoo, designed for those wanting natural and effective hair care for their kids.

Making the switch to a natural deodorant (and how to detox your armpits!)

Natural deodorants are becoming more and more popular, and for good reason. Deodorant is something we use every single day, and these daily-use items are the first we should be looking at when making better choices for our families and ourselves. Natural deodorants, such as Pure Beginnings’ range, don’t contain synthetic fragrances, phthalates and, most […]

Unpacking the world of probiotics

Many of us agree that probiotics are important for our health – but if we’re honest – we’re not quite sure why.

They really can put a dampener on an outdoor evening or a family camping trip in the bush. When […]

During Breast Cancer Awareness month, we must ask ourselves what more we can do to avoid this awful, and far too common disease. Something that is rising to the forefront of people’s minds is […]

Fluoride vs Xylitol – what’s what in the world of natural dental health?

Of late, fluoride and xylitol have been the centre of many conversations around optimal dental hygiene. What is safe, what isn’t – and do we need either of these ingredients at all? For the longest time we’ve been told that fluoride is the key to developing strong teeth. But is it? What exactly is fluoride? […]
