9 Non-GMO Household and Body-Care Products and Recipes

Toxic chemicals and artificial ingredients are hidden in a lot of commercial body-care and household products—even some that say "made with natural ingredients"—which is why it's important to ensure that whatever you're buying is 100 percent organic. If something is 100 percent organic, it cannot legally be made with genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

The skin, which is the largest organ, absorbs many substances that come into contact with it and sends them to the lymphatic system, blood and other organs, such as the liver, according to the book Ayurvedic Nutrition. And the respiratory system takes in the vapors of whatever we breathe.

A lot of companies make 100 percent organic/GMO-free household cleaners and body-care products. Nature does a good job of this too.
