I really am excited about 2 things when it comes to this company.
1- The mission aligns with everything posted on thesimpleselfcarelifestyle.com Each tip, tool, product and program revolves around self care right DOWN TO OUR CELLS.
Kabana states that it keeps this in mind too:
Kabana realizes skin is the gateway to the rest of your body. Our personal care products are designed to nourish not only your skin, but also be healthy for your body as a whole; your tissue, your organs, your nervous system, your reproductive tract, your children (even if you don’t have them yet). bold added
We choose ingredients that are biochemically identical to the building blocks your body already uses. This approach eliminates concern about chemical exposure and bioaccumulation, and maintains your health throughout a long life.
2nd- I’m very intrigued to see if Kabana helps the clients of practitioners I work with.
Specifically their clients with skin issues like psoriasis.
Reviewers on their site express being pleasantly surprised with the added benefit of improvement of their skin issues. I’ll update you on this one!
* Extra note: When confirming the ingredients list with CEO & Chief Formulation Chemist of Kabana Skin Care he shared the following products (NOT SUN SCREEN products but other Kabana products) contain soy, and/or oil derived from wheat.
“Our Kabana Crème moisturizer contains soy lecithin.
The DE’A line of facial products and Vitamin E Rejuventor creme use wheat germ oil.
All sunscreens are free of ingredients you’ve listed.”
The take away: Many companies may have A fantastic PRODUCT that matches all the criteria you need. BUT
It is important to check every product label of a BRAND to make sure each product from that brand matches the criteria you are looking for.
