infusionofstyles is preservative free and avoid these harmful ingredients! ALL natural ingredients (some are Fair Trade and Organic!
STAY WAY FROM THESE INGREDIENTS LISTED ON PRODUCTS
Parabens vs. Leuconostoc Radish Root Ferment
The chemical ingredient: Parabens
Explanation: "Most people are familiar with Parabens. All kinds of products from skin care to hand soap to household cleansers list 'paraben free' on their labels, but not many people know what they actually do. Parabens are used to preserve formulas and prevent mold, and can keep products stable for anywhere from two to five years."
The natural option: Leuconostoc radish root ferment
Why it works: "The same bacteria that keeps fermented foods safe to eat makes this an excellent, completely natural preservative. It guarantees a shelf life of at least 12 months, and has none of the potential health risks like endocrine disruption and reproductive toxicity that parabens have."
infusionofstyles has a coffee scrub mixed with seaweed just for these benefits plus a cellulite fighter! Coming soon!
Getting your greens takes on new meaning when we start talking seaweed skin benefits. You know your skin feels great after a day at the beach. Salt water and humidity have a way of doing that. Now for reaping the skin loving benefits of a plant from under the sea.
Seaweed is making a real name for itself. Pretty much any healthy living guru will tell you it is a nutrient-rich addition to your diet. As with most healthy ingredients, skin loves the superfood, too.
Technically a type of algae, there are three main colors of seaweed - green, red, and brown. Seaweed powders and extracts are added to skincare products, like cleansers, toners, masks, serums, and moisturizers.
One brand that is completely behind seaweed skin benefits and uses them in product formulations is OSEA. Take a look at EcoSalon’s interview with OSEA founder, Jennifer Palmer, to find out why she made seawee...

NOW don't get me wrong, there's truth in some news ans others not so. But works for you may not work for others. All they are asking you to just believe in it and try it out?
In the last few years, crystals have become ubiquitous in wellness enclaves. Every yoga studio has clusters of them in corners, chic beauty and wellness spaces like at CAP Beauty and Taryn Toomey's studio have crystals inlaid into their floors, and celebrities like Victoria Beckham, Katy Perry, and Miranda Kerr laud the mental health benefits they get from their precious stones. Now, using crystals as facial massage tools is taking off. Celebrity facialist Georgia Louise, who treats the likes of Emma Stone and Jennifer Aniston, created her own rose quartz tool called the Lift + Sculpt Butterfly Stone for puffiness- and wrinkle-reducing face massage; the Chinese medicine massage technique of gua sha using flat-shaped precious stones is rapidly becoming a beloved technique among holistic faciali...
You didn't tell have to tell me (infusionofstlyes) about just taking a bath. Warm/Hot and just right. Just take any type of bath and add some milk, flowers, essential oils, tea, ACV, sea salt, epsom salt and infusionofSTYLESproduct:Zulaikha Body Care Spa Gift Set. Making the bath time ritual experience extra, extra moisturizing and luxurious for your body. The experts are trying to say it maybe better than exercising.
Yeah right! But it is truly a relaxing comforting zen experience. I'll say!
This is not a drill. A steamy bath could have a couple of health benefits similar to those produced by exercise, according to a recent study.
Research published in the journal Temperature found that an hour-long soak in hot water produced similar anti-inflammatory and blood sugar responses as 60 minutes of moderate physical activity.
Sound too good to be true? While the research on these effects is still preliminary, there is a plausible explanation for this.
WOW, if this was around when I was born. Think of the possibilities. Man, do newborns have it rough! I mean, when was the last time you went down a birth canal? #Brutal. Really though - babies need a GD break.
Luckily, there's a way for newborns to relax when hours between naps seem to stretch on like days: They can visit Baby Spa, which recently opened a new outpost in Perth, Australia.
A typical Baby Spa session lasts about an hour and includes anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes of casual floating in a warm bath. Babies wear a special floatation device that safely supports the head above water and makes the whole thing look extra adorable.
The treatments aren't just supremely calming. Turns out, they're borderline medicinal, at least according to the Baby Spa's website. See, in water, young babies can do ~*mAgIcAl*~ things they can't yet manage on land because their itty-bitty bodies aren't strong enough, and gravity's a bitch. However, floating (aka hyd...

The Story of Stuff's new film explains how polyester yoga pants, fleeces, and even underwear are responsible for rampant plastic pollution.
Earlier this month, the Story of Stuff released its newest video on the problem of microfibers. The three-minute film offers a short yet powerful explanation of how the miniscule bits of synthetic fibers washing off our clothes are creating an environmental catastrophe in the oceans.
The microfiber pieces are smaller than a grain of rice, measuring less than 5 millimeters in length, which mean they cannot be filtered out by washing machines or even waste water treatment plants. They get flushed out into waterways and oceans, where they act like little sponges, attracting and absorbing other toxic chemicals around them, like motor oil and pesticides. Eventually they climb their way up the food chain, until they reach human bellies at mealtime.
The seasons are in flux, and chances are your skin is acting up. When it’s T-shirt weather one day and snowing the next, your body gets confused, and your skin starts to freak out.
Satisfying incessant cravings for processed sweets can make this seasonal transition a recipe for high blood sugar, sickness, and a pH level that’s all out of whack. Or you can treat yourself to something decadent and sure to please.
We teamed up with nutritionist and wellness coach Dorit Jaffe of Whole Healthy Glow to bring you a solution. It’s chocolate mousse that’s naturally sweetened with maple syrup, and nobody would ever guess that it’s made from avocado. The best part about this droolworthy dessert is that it’s actually good for you. Seriously, your skin will thank you for eating this.
Avocados are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which reduce inflammation in your body and provide moisture and elasticity to your skin. They are als...
