October brings many notable holidays that are important to the Kaia Earth family, especially Spanish Heritage Month and Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Spanish Heritage Month began on Sept. 15 and ends on Oct. 15. It’s a time to recognize the histories, cultures, and contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States.
Psychologist Gloria D. Onderdonk founded Kaia Earth Skin Care after she was diagnosed with a very early stage of (DCIS), Ductal carcinoma in situ breast cancer in 2015. Not only is Gloria an Italo-Venezuelan business owner, she is also a breast cancer survivor. After her diagnosis, her immune system was affected and her skin became extremely sensitive. She struggles to find products that were gentle enough for her skin and free of toxins, but she was at a loss, because nothing she tried worked for her.
Rather than letting this get her down, it motivated her to thoroughly research the root cause of her ailments and create her own skincare line that was effective, natural and pure (free of parabens, minerals oils, artificial fragrances, polyethylene glycol (PEGs), and formaldehyde) and that improved her hypersensitive skin.
With cancer so prevalent in our country and new studies constantly being released about different products we use on a daily basis being linked to cancer, it’s important to get breast cancer screening tests regularly, so you can get effective treatment as early as possible, and be aware of what exactly you’re putting on your skin. After all, your epidermis is your body’s largest organ. You wouldn’t consume formaldehyde, of course, so why use a product on your face that contains formaldehyde?
Reading the labels on your skincare products is key; educate yourself so you can avoid using products containing toxic ingredients.
Your health is a priority for us; make sure it’s a priority for you!
