Our Plant-Based Revolution

Consumers are growing increasingly dissatisfied with unwanted side effects resulting from harsh, synthetic products and are ready for real change.

 

The Plant-Based Revolution...

With industry leaders like Forest Remedies™ advocating for the power of plants, growing interest in improved health and naturally sourced, plant-based products has increased our collective awareness of not only what we put into our bodies and onto our skin but what we bring into our homes—and that has ushered in a plant-based revolution, with major implications for consumer preferences.  Simply put, people will no longer accept synthetic chemicals in their beauty and personal care products, and they don’t want them in their cleaners either.  Even the traditional hamburger is being pushed aside for plant-based alternatives. 

 

The Issue With Synthetics...

Really, it should come as no surprise that people are swapping out synthetic items for plant-based versions that are safer and sustainable.  Ever read the labels on your parents’ tried and true cleaners?  In fact, if a household cleaner contains bleach, you’re technically supposed to wipe the counter again after you use it to remove any residue.  That’s right, you’re supposed to clean off the cleaning product!  And that’s just the beginning.  Many chemical-based skincare products contain high levels of parabens which have been found to be endocrine disruptors.  Commercial toothpaste and hand soaps often contain triclosan, which has been found to alter hormone regulation in animals and might harm the immune system as well as contribute to the development of antibiotic-resistant germs.  Antiperspirants typically contain aluminum, which can be toxic in high doses.  And when it comes to health and wellness products, excessive use of traditional anti-inflammatory drugs like acetaminophen and ibuprofen brings a risk of organ damage to the kidneys and liver.  Fortunately, the plant-based revolution has influenced how we approach improving and sustaining our health, so it’s getting easier to find alternatives for these “traditional” household products.

 

The Rise of Natural Alternatives...

As concerns about unintended side effects and even responsible disposal of many traditional synthetic products grow, many consumers are turning to hemp and essential oils in lieu of their synthetic counterparts.  Essential oils are liquids extracted from plants containing the compounds naturally present that capture the plant’s scent, or “essence.”  They have a range of potentially beneficial applications, from helping moisturize, soothe and strengthen dry skin, to forming part of a relaxation routine, as well as possible implications for mood and focus..  Full- and broad-spectrum hemp extracts can soften rand nourish the skin, aid post-exercise muscle soreness or help you to unwind. Forest Remedies™ is thrilled to be able to offer these health and wellness aids, among others, to the general public.

The “power of the purse” is real.  When consumers decide to invest in companies that uphold their values and concerns, industries take notice and are incentivized to move in similar directions.
