Is your makeup to die for?


“Because women are the primary consumers of many personal care products, they may be disproportionately exposed to these chemicals, teen girls may be at particular risk since it’s a time of rapid reproductive development, and research has suggested that they use more personal care products per day than the average adult woman.” Kim Harley, Associate director of the UC Berkeley Center for Environmental Research 

After reading that are you feeling a bit like WTF!?

Yep, it's pretty crazy how un-safe commercial beauty products are, and how there is not one single board responsible for testing and approving the safety of new cosmetic and personal care products before they hit our supermarket and pharmacy shelfs!

Hanami was born out of our personal frustration of trying to find safe, non-toxic, animal and earth friendly products, what we were reading was just too damn scary not to act on!

Stick with me here, there's a light at the end of the tunnel I promise....

A study by UC Berkeley and Clinica de Salud del Valle Salinas found that you can deliberately and drastically drop the levels of hormone-disrupting chemicals present within the body by simply swapping your cosmetics, shampoos, and other personal care products to non-toxic brands.

After just three-days, the 100 participants who were using the lower chemical products, were tested and the results were huge: Methyl and propyl paragons (a commonly used preservative in cosmetics), dropped by 45%, metabolites of diethyl phthalate (commonly used fragrance in haircare, body care and perfume), dropped by 27%, and both triclosan and benzophenone-3 fell 36%. In. Just. Three. Days! Yes, you read correctly. Imagine what those results will show in a week, two weeks, a month, a year.....

Chuck out your pharmacy and supermarket brands NOW and get switching to safe brands, such as Hanami. It's better for you, your family, and the health of our environment!

You won't find any nasty hormone disrupting chemicals or cancer causing toxins in Hanami, let's make dangerous cosmetics a thing of the past!
