About Heidi Avelino, Chief Editor
I am a natural-minded mother who is constantly searching for ways to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. On Natural Beauty Lifestyle I share the safe natural products and sustainable methods that work for our family. I hope these insights will help you to live more naturally.
I am fortunate to call Honolulu, Hawaii my home base. My husband and I are originally from California, but were drawn to Hawaii by the year-round warm weather and the beautiful beaches. We love traveling, and spend much of our time experiencing cultures around the world. Currently, we are residing for a year in Thailand.
Having grown up in the Redwood forests of Northern California, I have always had a deep respect for the natural environment. I received my bachelor's degree in Biology with an emphasis in Ecology from the University of California, Santa Barbara. I later went on to study Law at the University of California, Davis, focusing on Environmental Law.
When I neared 30-years-old and started thinking about having a baby, I began switching to natural products, starting with natural beauty products. I learned through the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database that personal care products applied to the skin are absorbed into the blood stream. Many of the ingredients found in mainstream beauty products pose serious health concerns. In the United States, cosmetics companies are entrusted to ensure that their products are safe. This has resulted in many companies continuing to use carcinogenic or otherwise toxic ingredients.
At the same time, there is a growing natural beauty and lifestyle industry, providing an ever increasing variety of natural options. Many of these businesses have socially responsible missions and are helping to better the world in which we live. These are the types of businesses that I strive to support.
It is my desire that through individual purchasing choices and more protective consumer and environmental laws, we will be able to make healthy choices for our families, while conserving the beauty and benefits of Mother Nature. Please join me in this journey of returning to a more natural lifestyle.
