The Pomelo essential oil in BUG SCREEN and THROW SOME SHADE is reputed to be effective against ticks.
CAUTION: Pomelo is one (non-phototoxic) parent of the modern grapefruit. Being somewhat rare, the fruit oil has not been studied for contraindication with some cholesterol medications. Although amounts of this oil would be considered ‘trace’ in the final dilution if used and prepared as directed (in the case of the concentrate), since grapefruit and pomelo are related, if you are taking cholesterol management drugs and have any doubt, please consult your doctor before use.
Essential oils are highly concentrated plant essences which have been made and used for millennia. All have antibacterial properties; some are antiviral. No other preservatives are used in RED CLAY products. They are made fresh; all ingredients are derived from plant and mineral sources. Unlike synthetic chemicals, the residues of which too often persist indefinitely, essential oils are rapidly biodegradable.
For the products to be fully beneficial, some awareness is required:
They are prepared raw, to maintain the high levels of vitamins A and E in the ingredients. Leaving them in a closed car on a sunny paved lot, for example. will kill them. They are best used within one year of purchase.

Sunscreens: The Vitamin D Factor
Since sunscreen use began, skin cancer rates have actually risen. Reports are beginning to show that most sunscreens actually raise skin cancer risk. This may be, in part, because many sunscreens contain endocrine-disrupting chemicals such as oxybenzone. That SPF number that gives a sense of security is often the result of ingredients you don’t want in your body.
