We always talking about what we can and cannot eat stay healthy but we just put cheap products on our face and body with loads of chemicals that go into a skin. I’ve been battling leukemia and recently in the last year had a stem cell transplant. The products we use on our face, hair, skin effects our body. I have recently discovered the nutrimetics range which is not animal tested and safe on my skin and having been through what I have been through this is great. The Nutri rich oil has so many benefits and one being it can be used on scars.
I joined up with them so its easier for my to buy the products online and now using the cleaning products and just got my daughter on them. Start her on the right track.
Not just what we eat.
If you would like to look at the products feel free to do so www.nutrimetics.com.au/tracybaker
What do other people use to keep their body safe from chemicals?

  • The only thing I use in my body is almond oil, it keeps my skin very hydrated, as an example, I gained 20 kilos during my pregnancy and didn’t get any stretch marks. I really recommend it.

  • I try to use natural skin care products wherever possible. I stay well hydrated, eat a healthy diet and take health supplements like zinc, olive leaf extract, organic coconut oil to assist with keeping my skin healthy from the inside. I honestly don’t know if it works, but figure it can’t hurt.

  • You can easily make alot of skin products at home with no nasties.

  • Same here I haven’t use for ages but now back with them not going to use nothing else. It has been good for me and the family. With going through what I have been through not going use chemicals on my body. If you want anything or to have a look. Look at my web you can order online which I like because I cant go out and mix with people because I have a low immune system.

  • I haven’t heard of Nutrimetics for years – good to know they are still around. I’m loving Rubifresh products – natural and soothing. They have a Facebook page.

  • I use whisked egg whites on my face; once it has dried I rinse and feel great!!!! have a try!!!

  • water..and common sense

  • Most of the Aged Care Facilities use QV. as fo a lot of hospitals. A lot of their residents have Eczema when they go there. Many of them have successful results by using that. In your case it may be something leeching into the water from the tank structure. If you have trees around the area they could be blowing onto your roof and gutters, then going into your tank either in small pieces or in with rainfall or something in the water if you are buying it. Is the tank be filled via a bore or dam? It could be the mineral content in it e.g. some water can have a fair amount of lime or salt in it. Friends of ours on a farm (nowhere within 100s km from the sea, had a natural lake on their porperty and were going to pump water from it for stock and the house. Somebody decided to get a glass of water from it and discovered it was very salty. What state do you live in? IN SA I knew a boy who at 20 months old his eczma on his legs was so sore that some days he cried with the pain when he tried to walk. They took him to another specialist who told them to wash him in only clear water and not too often unless absolutely necessary. They originally came from Melbourne and thought the water mightbe better in Adelaide. It made his eczema a lot worse even with fresh less frequently bathing and trially various treatments. They returned to Melbourne and it improved a lot within 2 months.

  • You should try the OLC cleaner from nutrimetics it can be use for everything to wash in and clean the house, wash dishes and fruit and veg from the chemicals they spray on.

  • As I have a son whom had sever chronic eczema we use either no chemicals on body to wash or goat soap has to be “pure” and if been sold one that’s not pure I know within 3 minutes of him having a shower. Or alover soap but only if ran out of soap and it very dirty.
    Also use baking soda and hot water to wash floors with a drop of pure esentail oils. For a soft fragrance in the house.
    We did try home made toothpaste but due to tank water boys tSeth went from good to not good in 6 months so back to Colgate toothpaste.
    And moisturiser we use dermeze ointment won’t change this as its seems to work after yes of trail and error. try to use minimal cloths softner and washing powder is called caring. As rest flares skin up.
