Holistic Healing News mentions RAVE FabriCARE

Holistic labelGabrielle Saveri, UCLA's expert on sustainable technology, has published an article in Holistic Healing News entitled Dry Cleaning and Toxicology.

In that article, she questions the use of perchloroethylene (aka perc) and synthetic petroleum and the marketing of synthetic petroleum, as an "organic" or "eco-friendly" alternative to perc.

She also questions the use of siloxane as an alternative to perc and synthetic petroleum. She states that siloxane poses it's "own set of risks," despite the fact that siloxane has been used for decades in personal care products you've been dripping into your eyes and rubbing onto the most sensitive parts of your skin for over 30 years. Products such as shampoo, antiperspirants, deodorants, moisturizing creams, sunblocks and lipsticks.

What's more, if you've ever eaten McDonalds' french fries, you've even eaten siloxane (used as an antifoaming agent in cooking oils).

Gabrielle's mostly got it right. I could take issue with a few points but they are relatively minor relative to her main point: Forget the creative buzz words. Focus instead on the specific dry cleaning solvent or fluid your dry cleaner uses, and the pros and cons of that solvent or fluid.

How can I help you?
