Idun parfymefri make up

Parfymefri make up merke Idun

Kjøper du på Apoteket

Det går helt fint å være fashionabel og parfymefri.

Bli parfymefri du også!

Jeg har ikke testet produktet selv, jeg har bare sett salgstandet på mitt lokale apotek og kjøpt en rouge, jeg har ikke betalt for å reklamere for produktet.

Må jo holde seg ren…

Da man snakker med en kjent:

“- Jeg kikket bare om det var plass i bilen…”

“- Å vil du sitte på?”

“- Ja men du er jo allergisk mot meg.”

“- Jeg er bare allergisk når du har parfyme på deg.”

“- Ja men jeg er jo som alle andre hygienisk vasker meg, bruker deodorant, og parfyme, må holde seg ren.”

“- Jeg dusjer også og bruker deo, men ikke parfyme, jeg har dusjet i dag og vasket håret og brukt deo. Jeg lukter ikke. Man behøver ikke parfyme for å vaske seg.”

…jeg lukter på håret mitt. “- Det lukter ikke.”

Han lukter på håret mitt.  “- E, hm, mm”

Det såg ut som det kverna i hodet på ham. 

Faktisk at folk flest er hjernevasket av industrien, det er ikke parfymen som vasker rent, det er såpen, det er ikke parfymen som er virkestoff i deodorant, parfyme er bare en unødvendig ekstra tilsats som ikke har noen nødvendig oppgave.

Produsentene av parfymerte produkter lyger til kundene “-Det lukter rent av duft”, sannheten er at rent lukter ingenting, som ren luft, det lukter ingenting, muligens et hint av litt vann. Det lukter i hvert fall ikke parfyme. Luft tilsatt parfyme er ikke ren.

No more laundry detergent or smell

Research for better environment

“Tenants in Malmö Sweden now becomes the first in the world to test a technology that cleans clothes in cold water and no detergent. Laundry room installed in two high-rise residential Nydala in Malmo used by 70 tenants and has according to owner minimal environmental impact.
– No more buying laundry detergent and fabric softener and additionally wash machines with cold water. This is something that we are the first in the world to offer. It is clean and odor-free, says Magnus novel that is project manager at MKB. In the installed laundry room is a facility in a cabinet that filter the water and de-ionize it. When the deionized water come in contact with the fabrics in the washing machine breaking the ionic bond between the fibers and dirt.

MKB Fasighets AB has high hopes for the technology. Totally are washed six million washes in the property company laundries every year and to wash with cold water would give a very large energy savings. Detergent and fabric softener is no cost for the property, but also here the company sees many benefits as it would save the environment by creating less pollution, less packaging waste and less risk of allergies.
– We want to contribute to ecologically sustainable Malmö, says Magnus Röman. By testing this solution we hope to find one of the ways that can help us achieve our ambitious goals.

In the project, electricity consumption, water consumption and customer satisfaction will be measured during the six months that the company will then decide how to proceed.” aktuellhallbarhet.se

Batteridrevne lys – Battery-powered candles

(Scroll down for English)

Frisk luft og kos med lys

Ofte om man har sensitive luftveier da må man avstå fra meget i livet. De senere år har det komt mange varianter av batteridrevne lys, kubbelys, telys osv. Du kan altså ha kos med lys på bordet uten å forurense luften inne.

Da man brenner vanlige lys eller duftlys da spres mange forskjellige kjemiske stoffer til luften som helse- og miljøskadelige stoffer som for eksempel krom, muskxylen, karbondioksid (CO2), nitrogendioksid (NO2), tungmetaller, nanopartikler, Lettflyktige organiske stoffer (forkortes VOC fra engelsk volatile organic compounds) natrium og kalium salter m.m. Lys av parafin avgir mer partikler enn rene stearinlys. I et laboratoriestudie med blåfarget parafin lys kan forhøyede nivåer av metaller som kobber, kobolt, bly og sink m.m. måles i luften.

Ved brenning av telys og stearinlys vil en del av stearinet forbrenne ufullstendig og danne sotpartikler i luften. Noen (men ikke utelukkende disse) av de lys som avgir skadelige stoffer til inneluften er er stearinlys, parafinlys, duftlys, glimmerlys, gelelys, lys med påtrykt dekor, soyalys, bivoks- eller palmelys m.m. Alt man brenner avgir stoffer til luften.

“Brænder du stearinlys i to timer om dagen, står de for næsten to tredjedele af den samlede indendørs forurening.” Videnskap.dk

Stearinlys kan gi samme inneluft som moderat røyking innendørs og i alle fall tilsvarende bidrag man kan få fra utendørsluftforurensning, det er derfor viktig å unngå å brenne lys inne. Hver gang du blåser ut et telys, frigjøres 350 000 sotpartikler – det er like mye som fra en sigarett! Når stearinlys brenner vil en del av stearinet forbrenne ufullstendig. Dette delvis forbrente kullholdige materialet vil danne sotpartikler i luften. Disse partiklene består av en kompleks blanding av stoffer, fra rent kull til sammensatte organiske forbindelser. Flere lys i et rom med dårlig ventilasjon kan føre til luftveisirritasjoner, astmabesvær, svimmelhet og hodepine. Mens stearin er en fornybar råvare, er parafin en fossil råvare som slipper ut skadelige klimagasser og avgir flere sotpartikler. Parafin er i tillegg mer brannfarlig. Undersøkelser viser at vi, dersom vi ikke hadde brukt parafinlys, ville redusert klimagassutslippene tilsvarende det å fjerne 21 000 biler fra veiene. Duftlys er verstingen for astmatikere og allergikere, de sprer stoffer til luften som er allergiframkallende, irriterende på luftveiene og utløser astmaanfaller. Disse lysene lukter godt, men gjør ikke kroppen noen tjeneste. En undersøkelse ved Københavns universitet, basert på 78 personer i 58 boliger i København viser at bruk av brennende lys kan være farlig: Forskerne observerte nedsatt lungefunksjon og tegn på betennelse i lungene hos personer i hjem hvor det er mange partikler fra levende lys. Ifølge overlege Kåre Refvem, som er spesialist i lungesykdommer og indremedisin, er det ingen tvil om at sotpartiklene man puster inn fra levende lys påvirker lungene. Det er en del mennesker som reagerer på slike sotpartikler, det skjer en reaksjon når man blir eksponert for forurenset luft: Slimhinnen blir irritert, det dannes mer slim og det kan forekomme en betennelsesprosess i bronkiene. I praksis, over tid, kan hyppig bruk av telys og andre levende lys blant annet forverre en tilstand av kols eller astma, og noen holder seg til og med hjemme fra selskaper, for å unngå alle lysene.
Barn har sensitive og mer følsomme luftveier enn voksne uansett om de har astma, allergi eller andre sjukdommer som gir dem sensitive luftveier. Barn som vokser har en hurtigere pust enn det voksne har og trekker inn mer luft hyppigere enn voksne. Både barn og voksne med luftveisproblemer og allergier har en bedre helse om man unngår å brenne levende lys.

Lysene i videoen herover kjøpte jeg på Jernia, de går på to AA batterier og de tennes med en fjernkontroll. Du eller barnen kan altså sitte trygt i sofan og tenne lysene på avstand, og de  er helt parfymefrie og sotfrie, og du kan være trygg på at det ikke begynner å brenne i duker og gardiner.

God luft inne.

In English

Clean air and cozy with candles

If you have sensitive airways it is rather often you have to avoid things in life, but in recent time it have been produced battery-powered candles in many different kinds. Therefor you can have that cozy time and fresh air at the same time.

When you burn regular candles og scented candles many health and environmental hazardous chemicals are delivered to the air for example chromium, musk xylene, carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen dioxide (NO2) heavy metals, nanoparticles, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) sodium o potassium salts and more. Candles made of paraffin produce even more particles than pure stearin candles. In a laboratory study with blue-colored paraffin candles is elevated levels of metals such as copper, cobalt, lead and zinc and more measured in the air.

When burning candles a portion of the stearic burn incompletely and form soot particles in the air. Some (but not exclusively these) of the candles emitting harmful substances to indoor air are stearin candles, paraffin candles, scented candles, glimmer candles, gel candles, candles with printed decoration, soya candles, bee wax or palm candles and such. Everything is burnt do emit substances into the air.

“If you burn candles for two hours a day, they account for almost two thirds of the total indoor pollution.” Videnskap.dk

Candles can provide the same indoor air pollution that moderate smoking indoors and at least equivalent contribution one can get from outdoor air pollution. It is therefore important to avoid burning candles indoors. Every time you blow out a light, released 350,000 soot particles – it is as much as from a cigarette! When candle burning, part of stearin burn incompletely. This partially combusted carbonaceous material will form soot particles in the air. These particles consist of a complex mixture of substances, from clean coal to complex organic compounds. More candles in a room with poor ventilation can cause respiratory irritation, asthma symptoms, dizziness and headache. While stearin is a renewable raw material, paraffin is a fossil raw materials that emit harmful greenhouse gases and emit more soot particles. Paraffin is also more flammable. Studies show that we, if we had not used paraffin candles, would have reduced greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to removing 21,000 cars from the roads. Scented candles are worst fumes for asthma and allergy sufferers, they spread substances to air that are allergenic, irritating to the airways and trigger asthma attacks. These candles smell good but do not do your body any service. A survey by the University of Copenhagen, based on 78 people in 58 homes in Copenhagen shows that the use of burning candles can be dangerous: The researchers observed reduced lung function and signs of inflammation in the lungs of people in homes where there are many particles of candlelight. According to consultant Kåre Refvem, who specializes in lung diseases and internal medicine, there is no doubt that the soot particles they inhale from candlelight affects the lungs. There are some people who react to such soot particles, there is a reaction when exposed to polluted air: The mucus membranes becomes irritated, forming more mucus and there be an inflammatory process in the bronchi. In practice, over time, the frequent use of candles and other candles including aggravate a condition of COPD or asthma, and some remain even home from social events, to avoid all the lights.

Children are sensitive and got more sensitive airways than adults whether they have asthma, allergies or other diseases that give them sensitive airways or not. Children who grow have a faster breathing than adults have and draws in more air more frequently than adults. Both children and adults with respiratory problems and allergies have a better health if you avoid burning candles.

The lights in the video in this blog post I bought at Jernia store, they run on two AA batteries and they can be lid using a remote control. You or your child (if you have children) can therefore sit comfy and safely in sofa and light the lights from a distance and they are completely fragrance-free and soot free, and you can be assured that it does not begin to burn in tablecloths and curtains.

Fresh air indoors.

Make the first time trying it gently, if you got a skin condition try it on a small area, and washing agents on a hidden area or a cloth you can afford to waste.

Tested: Natural makeup remover

Makeup remover

When you finally have found this fragrance free waterproof mascara you will probably need to find a fragrance free makeup remover. I have been thinking for a while and since fatty skin care products make even waterproof mascara running I thought maybe something from the kitchen will work instead of those chemical filled products you find in the store.

Olive oil

Olive oil is fatty, greasy and also good for your skin. It do not hold much that is bad for you and it is fragrance free. It is also a good mascara remover.

image

Do like this:

Put a little ecological olive oil on a cotton pad and wipe your eye lids and lashes clean.

image

Wash with a mild fragrance free soap and water after. You get clean and you lotion your skin at the same time.

Just keep your eyes locked when wiping with the olive oil.

Antibacterial fluid for your hands. I cannot usually use this kind of products. This one is tested by NAAF, The Norwegian Asthma and Allergy Association therefore I dared to smell it. Unfortunately this product was not good enough for me. I would rather recommend Neutral Antibacterial Wet Towels.

Clean your toilet

Everyone need to clean the WC once in a while, and for someone having ashtma and being sensitive to Chemicals and perfume it can be a Challenge. Since all of those Products evaporates gasses holding Chemicals triggering asthma one get sick from the experience cleaning a toilet.

Online in a fora for MCS I expressed my problem and asked for a tip what to use instead, since there are no alternative Products for toilets I can use.

And one MCS girl came With a wonderful solution. She said only use fragrance free detergent and clean the toilet With. And I tried it, and it Works perfectly!

The powder in the detergent Works like a charm scrubbing the inside of the toilet and cleaning it, and leaves a shiny inside.

So next time you need to clean Your toilet use a fragrance free Asthma and Allergy Association approved detergent to clean Your WC and you will have no asthma problems.

I would like to give praise to Spar shop who cares about sensitive people. In both shops I shop the sell fragrance free products. Both soap, shower gel, deodorant a.s, and household cleaning agents, detergent and fabric softener. And if you ask nicely the will order what you need. That make a huge difference to other shops that do not care at all. Customer service.

Tested: La Roche-Posay Anthelios 50 + Sunblock UVB + UVA – Whitelisted

I have been looking for a perfume free and paraben free sunblock for a long time. All I have found until now I have gotten sore eyes from giving me a itchy burning sensation. So I have been looking and looking, buying and trying and spent much money on useless sunblock.

And finally I found one! No perfume, no paraben and no sore, hurting, itchy eyes!

Only small minus is that it leaves you with a little white looking shine for a hour or two. But if you put it on some time before you go out that should not be a problem.

Note! Always check ingredients before you buy. It is possible at Environmental Working Group EWG Skin Deep.

About the test This is a pure inhale test of the products. I test the products on my self. This is a real life asthma product suitability test done at home in real life settings. I am my own guinea pig. Whitelisted products should be safe for you to use, while blacklisted are not safe. But as with all sensitivities some are more sensitive than others, always try new products with care. Make the first time trying it gently, if you got a skin condition try it on a small area, and washing agents on a hidden area or a cloth you can afford to waste.

My lungs are very picky when it comes to hygiene products, beauty products, hair products, washing and cleaning products and so on. Products not meeting the standards of no asthma reaction are blacklisted.

Please, buy such items whitelisted as gifts for friends and family. They are designed and made for a better personal health and are more environmentally beneficial than the fragranced ones. Use them yourself, care about your fellow-man. Do not make other people sick with your fragrance presence.

I was not paid to try this product out.

Tested: Jane Iredale Lash Conditioner – Whitelisted

I talked with Fedora Minerals Makeup representative about their mascara I find a little thin when adding it to the lashes. They suggested I should use a lash conditioner the first layer, and then add mascara, this will thicken the lashes and make them appear better they said. And during this talk on Facebook they were kind enough to promise to send me one for free so I could try it. Really nice of them. :-)

By accident they sent me Jane Iredale instead of Fedora. Same manufacturer. This little accident gave me something new to write about. :-)

A lash conditioner is like a primer you add to the lashes before adding mascara. It is supposed to protect the lashes and thicken and stiffen them before adding mascara. It make the first layer of mascara better visible faster. One can also wear it as a care product at night for conditioning the lashes while sleeping, Fedora Minerals told me.

It came by post

Dishwasher machine cleaner.. Scent free wishes

Why are there not any dishwashermachine cleanser tablet scent free? Everytime I neeed to clean my dishwasher I get problems with my asthma. Thsoe available are so stuffed with strong smelling chemicals it irritates my lungs. Ok, I do not do it everyday, but just as well, I should not have to become sick from it at all.

Fragrance Free Car

Have you ever thought of the environment in your vehicle (car, bus, camper, train, a.s)?

Most people follow the fragrance, make things smell new. But have you ever thought of what is in the smell filled environment you provide for your passengers, friends and family?

Read on what is in fragrance,,,

If your passenger, friends or someone in your family are sensitive have you thought of what it does to them riding in your car / vehicle with you?

From fragrance a person can have runny nose, running and itchy eyes, headaches, nausea, rashes, eczema, lung dysfunction and breathing problems and so on.

How to make your car a allergy friendly place?

  • Clear out all so called airfresheners and air fragrances.
  • Clean your car inside with fragrance free products.
  • Do not smoke in your car.
  • Clean the ash tray and do not use it.
  • Do not wear perfume yourself. Think of that the vehicle is a small locked in space where your fragrance is closed in and the person sitting with you is not able to move away from you.
