Please allow me to introduce myself:

I’m the soul-e-prenuer of Pandora’s Products, Inc.. But what the hell does that exactly mean, to be a soul-e-preneur? I wish I could remember where I heard the phrase about 5 years ago, so I could give proper credit.  When I google the term, it seems only I’m using it (if you find someone else, PLEASE let me know, so I can properly thank them!).  Since it seems so obscure, let’s start the new calendar year, by explaining this and helping you understand a bit about what I do. First, understand that I never dreamed of owning a business.  I ...

Is Your Beauty Routine Killing You?

Cosmetic = derived from the word cosmos; the order of the Universe; creating harmony in the Universe through a beauty care routine.   Very few skin products are natural or contain actual natural ingredients – there’s a previous blog that explains how the word natural is being bastardized…you must do research, to stay ahead of marketing strategies. Mineral oil is obtained from petroleum (you know…gasoline!?!)– it’s allergenic, phototoxic, greasy and clogs the pores. In addition, it is a known carcinogen (cancer-causing agent) and leeches minerals from the body.  If mineral oil wasn’t dangerous enough by itself, the mere process of ...

Three things about us and the natural & organic phrasing

To understand where we as a company fall in the realm of organic and natural products, you have to understand what the different terms mean.  Since I encourage everyone who attends my workshop to research the companies they are supporting, I’ll tell you exactly where WE stand on the entire spectrum of labeling our products. First, the terminology.  Understand that “the FDA does not define or regulate the term ‘organic,’ as it applies to cosmetics, body care, or personal care products.  If a product contains ingredients that can be classified as agricultural…it may be eligible to be certified [as organic].” ...

Conscious.

-Author Jessica Saraswati A story out of Pocatello, Idaho emerged today about a cow who fled a butcher shop and led police on a long, wild chase before being shot and killed. He weighed about 1,000 lbs.and jumped a 6 foot fence in an effort to escape being slaughtered.   So what does this tell us? Why did the cow do that? Could he possibly have known  that he was going to be killed and he got scared? Can animals really think and feel and know?   Of course they can.   Animals have the same mechanisms to interpret reality as ...

If the germs don’t kill you, the soap will…

I’m going to jump on my soap box, for a minute (yeah, yeah, pun intended)…  I have never been a fan of the entire anti-bacterial movement.  I simply don’t understand it.  That being said, here’s a recent article that confirms my fears about how we manufacture and market products as safe, without thinking it through.  We’ve taken the basic concept of vaccines, and turned it into a huge movement that makes is fear something very small, very common, and very necessary.  Germs. Here are my *basic* problems with antibacterial products: 1 – You’re relying on some outside product to protect ...
