Switch to a natural insect repellent, non-toxic hand sanitiser and organic vapour rub for babies in 2023

Goals for living a cleaner 2023? Here's some tips how

, by AussiePharmaDirect, 5 min reading time

Every day we are exposed to hundreds of chemicals and toxins, from the air we breathe, to the food we eat and everything in between. They are in our food, water and household products and include pesticides, herbicides, flame retardants, cleaning supplies, smoke, cosmetics, building materials, furnishings and more.

Long term exposure has been linked to heart disease, cancer, hormone disruption, growth problems for children and a compromised immune system. Certainly not an ideal scenario!

Our bodies have inbuilt ways to remove toxins, but if there’s an overload, our organs may not be able to filter as quickly or as effectively as possible to remove the toxins, which can negatively impact our overall health and ability to fight off infection and disease.

4 ways to reduce your daily exposure to chemicals

The most obvious solution is to reduce your level of exposure to chemicals in the air you breathe and what you ingest via the food you eat, the chemicals you apply to your skin, and the chemicals on surfaces that you touch.

Use ViroCLEAR as your sanitiser

A good starting point is to switch to ViroCLEAR which provides a plant-based solution for your cleaning and sanitation needs.

The combination of extracts of Australian native plants with a minute amount of benzalkonium chloride (BKC) - the same amount that is used in eye drops, provides alcohol and ethanol free* antimicrobial protection that kills 99.99 per cent of germs and bacteria.

ViroCLEAR is available as a hospital grade disinfectant, a

room disinfectant air fogger, and what we believe is the best hand sanitiser in Australia.

The non-toxic hospital grade disinfectant has been listed with the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods and the FDA and is clinically proven to kill Covid, HRSV, monkey pox, SARS and Rhinovirus within 90 seconds, making it an essential item to keep your family, home and office safe and healthy.

And in contrast to other surface disinfectants, the level of BKC, the active ingredient in ViroCLEAR, is just 0.12% w/w, as compared to up to 2.1% w/w in some other surface disinfectants, offering maximum protection with minimal chemical components.

ViroCLEAR’s fogging disinfectant solution allows for not only the quick and easy cleaning of surfaces, but also cleans the air you breathe. Operating much like a flea bomb, it disperses a fine mist of antimicrobial solution that covers an area of up to 40m2.

Switch to a DEET free mosquito repellent

The next step to reduce your chemical load is to switch to a natural insect repellent like Good Riddance mozzie products. The range includes the best natural mosquito repellent Australia has to offer. Available in Tropical and Sensitive formulations, the all-natural, plant based DEET free insect repellent ensures you can say Good Riddance to mozzies, midges and sandflies.

Good Riddance is also available as a gorgeous smelling outdoor citronella candle, an essential oil insect repellent, and a Rescue Balm Bite Relief. The 100 per cent essential oil actives smell divine, are a natural mosquito repellent for babies and ensure you will never have to smell like a science experiment ever again.

Choose an organic vapour rub for babies

And talking about babies, if you have a little one with a congested chest and stuffy nose and you want to avoid smearing them with a chemical laden chest rub, the Australian 123 Nourish Me range offers a family-friendly, all-natural chest rub balm that will relieve their discomfort and send them off to the land of lullabies for a restful sleep.

Their Sleepy Head Balm baby vapour rub is the perfect natural sleep aid for babies for a peaceful night’s sleep, and the Chesty Rub Balm contains a blend of pure, organic ingredients designed to relieve congested airways.

Clear mucus from lungs with AirPhysio

There’s also a chemical and drug free solution for anyone affected by a lung or respiratory condition such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, chronic bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, bronchiectasis, emphysema, RSV, pneumonia, or even the common cold or flu.

Utilising the airway clearance techniques that doctors have been using in hospitals for years, AirPhysio is an Oscillating Positive Expiratory Pressure device that is a simple, yet effective lung training tool that loosens and mobilises thick, stubborn mucus in the airways which make it hard to breathe.

AirPhysio is a mucus clearance device that is NOT an inhaler, nebuliser, spirometer, spray or puffer and does not require a prescription.

And best of all, all these chemical free alternatives are Australian made and owned!

*ViroCLEAR Fogger contains a small amount of ethanol in the aerosol to aid the dispersion of the product.
