My name is Avery and I have spent the last four years learning everything I could about the products we use every day and what ingredients are in them.
When I was 13, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 36. Though my family was one of the lucky ones, and had a speedy recovery, it still puzzles me how someone so young and healthy had to endure this diagnosis. I vividly remember my mom’s oncologist advising her to stay away from dairy and soy going forward. This sticks out as the first instance I had heard of factors in our environment being a potential threat to our health.
My academic career focused on the factors that are contributing to adverse health outcomes, specific to maternal, fetal, and infant health. It became quickly apparent through these studies that there is something happening in our every day lives that is contributing to an increased risk of disease. I took a deep dive into the regulations within the United States and couldn’t believe how little the agencies that are designed to protect us are doing to check ingredients before they’re in products we touch every day.
I’ve tested hundreds of products and have done the research so you don’t have to. Luckily, there’s so many amazing products on the market now that don’t make us sacrifice quality for safety.
I’m so happy and excited to share everything I have learned and products I love so much with everyone!
