Fem Care Education

Unbelievably, no federal law exists which requires disclosure of ingredients in tampons and pads. This means women are left in the dark about what ingredients they are putting on some of the most sensitive and absorptive tissue on their body.
There have been some efforts to make this a requirement, but none have succeeded yet.  Most recently, Representative Grace Meng introduced the Menstrual Products Right to Know Act. Just last year, Seventh Generation, Womens Voices for the Earth, and Rep. Meng went to Capitol Hill to raise awareness among legislators and rally for this bill.  We will continue to push for this in 2018.
What's the big deal anyway?
Vaginal tissue is very sensitive, which means we should be extra careful about what’s coming into contact with it. The walls of the vagina are filled with numerous blood vessels and lymphatic vessels, which allows for direct transfer of chemicals in to the circulatory system. In fact, there is considerable interest in vaginal drug delivery systems because the vagina is such an effective site to transfer drugs directly into the blood without being metabolized first.
One study found that a vaginally applied dose of estradiol (an estrogen proxy) resulted in systemic estradiol levels in the body 10 to 80 times greater compared to the same dose given orally. So, you should really know what the heck is in the products you use around the vagina.
The whole truth.
Right now, some companies tell you a little bit about what’s in their products. While tampon and pad manufacturers aren’t required to disclose ingredients, many do include some basic information on their packages about the ingredients — unless they use fragrance. A ‘fragrance’ in a product can be made up of 50-200 different ingredients, many for which health data simply doesn’t exist. This black box means that you could be exposing your body to fragrance ingredients without even knowing it.
We can do better.
Forward-thinking companies are already doing the right thing for women by voluntarily disclosing the ingredients used in their products. And leaders like Seventh Generation are taking the extra step to advocate for transparency industry-wide.
Together, we can tell Congress that we have the right to know what’s in the products we use so intimately. Congress can do their part by enacting a very simple, common-sense law.

Skinny Cow Ice Cream is Amazing!

I was able to try the Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwiches, for free through My Magazine Sharing Network. We chose the ice cream sandwiches, because that is all that was available at our Kroger. The ice cream part of the sandwich was AMAZING, and such high quality! I would buy the ice cream, on its own, in a heart beat! However, the sandwich part of it was dry, sticky, and overpowered the ice cream. I would not buy that again. But the ice cream was just so good we are for sure going to look for that, on its own! It tasted just like other high quality ice cream, but with less the fat and calories!

StainMaster Carpet Pet Stain Remover is a MUST Have!

This is Maddie Lane, she is one of two others. And if you have pets like we do, then you know just how messy they can be, even cats! Through My Magazine Sharing Network I was given the opportunity to test (for free) Stain Master Carpet Pet Stain Remover. Now, not to be too gross, but this adorable girl is quite the puker! No matter what we have tried, different foods, etc, she just has a sensitive tummy. Other than that she is a dream, sweet, loving, well behaved and just all around wonderful! I have tried MANY different stain removers, but it is NOT an easy task to get that kind of stain out of light colored carpet! 
However, once I got my hands on StainMaster Carpet Pet Stain Remover, the stains came right out, new and old. Not to mention how quickly they came out! I didn't have to scrub for days, there was no odor left behind and no sticky residue. And you know, that sticky residue, that can be left behind by some other carpet cleaners, is just a dirt magnet!
StainMaster products have a very different technology than other products have. They are designed to clean faster on contact and repel dirt. Having this technology  will protect against future re-soiling. That will make for a much easier clean every time!

You can see the discolored spot in front of the StainMaster Carpet Pet Stain Remover.

No more stain. which was bright orange!! This picture was taken right after using the product, so it was just a little wet, but there is nothing left at all!

Fire Up The Flavor!

Everyone who knows me, knows I LOVE Kroger! My step son has said many times, if we are not at home, check Kroger! lol
I am apart of My Magazine Sharing Network, which is part of Kroger and other fine stores, allowed me to try (for free) their Private Selections BBQ Kettle chips and their Private Selections Chile Ranch Seasoning Rub.  the BBQ Kettle chips are sweet, tangy, crispy with a hit of black pepper at the end. They were amazing and didn't last long in our house! I used the Green Chile Ranch seasoning rub, in my cast iron grill skillet (since we do not have a grill here) on chicken and it was beyond good! And let me tell you, it also didn't last long! I am sure it would even be better out on the grill! And it is not just for chicken! it would be great on meat as well. It is hot, not too hot, and tangy. It has the right amount of seasonings that scream Southwest with Chiles, spices and buttermilk. 
The Kroger Private Selections is a top notch brand that is high quality and culinary inspired dream with ingredients that are a must for your every day meal! They are quick, easy, and so very tasty! Private Selections should be a staple in your kitchen, like it is in mine!

Enjoy The New Nestea Experience!

Nestea has a great new look to their classic teas. Not only is their look new, but they have revamped their recipes! Are you and your family tea lovers like we are? If so you don't want to miss out on the new Nestea products. I was able to receive two free Nestea products through My Magazine Sharing Network. I chose to try the new Nestea Lemon and Peach flavors. They have totally reformulated their classic recipe flavors to improve the taste, if you can imagine that! To do that, they now use fewer ingredients with out sacrificing any of that great flavor. If you loved Nestea before, you will love them even more now! They still have their wonderful, natural flavors but now there are no longer any artificial flavors or colors added, just crisp tasty tea! In addition, they have also done away with the use of High Fructose Corn Syrup. So what are you left with? A excellent tasting tea! The Nestea Peach Tea is refreshing and sweet, without being too sweet, it is smooth and oh so delicious. The Nestea Lemon Tea is true classic with a very bright flavor that you don't want to miss out on! In addition to these two outstanding flavors, they have also added Nestea Sweet Black Tea, which I have yet to try. This tea is said to have an authentic black tea flavor, with the perfect amount of sweetness, that has that great "just like home" brewed taste. You don't want to miss out on any of these great, new and improved Nestea teas!
