“[The liver is] the most abused organ in the body, for the careless diet of civilized man throws a tremendous load on the liver! The chemicals that get into our vegetables… due to chemical fertilizers, poisonous sprays and food addi-tives… have more than doubled.* Should the work-load become too heavy… [those] chemicals sneak through to affect the tissue cells. In that case, all types of degenerative diseases may develop.
Is it any wonder that degenerative diseases are affecting so many people today? The load of chemicals carried to the liver of the average person is just too great to be handled. The liver is literally swamped! “

It’s here… Protect Deodorant!
How do you choose an underarm deodorant? Most people select a product by its fragrance. Uh-oh… wrong decision! In fact, the most important criteria to evaluate a deodorant to use on your body is… whether or not it is a natural deodorant without toxic ingredients.
One of the most harmful products that you can use on your body is commercial deodorant and antiperspirants. Why? Antiperspirants work by clogging the sweat ducts in your skin so that your body cannot secrete toxins when you perspire. And, in the process of inhibiting this natural cleansing process, commercial antiperspirants (and deodorants) make it worse by releasing the harmful chemicals they’re made of into your body.
Now you have a better option… new Protect Deodorant from Shaklee! Enriched with natural powders and waxes for a dry feel and smooth glide, this arrowroot and zinc-based deodorant with charcoal neutralizes odor and absorbs wetness, supports a healthy pH and skin microbiome with fermented coconut and Lactobacillus, and soothes and protects the delicate underarm area with nourishing vitamins and antioxidants.
Antiperspirant vs. Deodorant
Deodorant uses ingredients to naturally absorb odor and wetness. Antiperspirants contain aluminum, which temporarily blocks perspiration from escaping sweat glands.
⇒⇒ Contains aluminum, which blocks perspiration from escaping sweat glands
⇒⇒ Fights odor by reducing sweat
⇒⇒ Reduces underarm wetness
⇒⇒ Neutralizes & absorbs odor
⇒⇒ Does not reduce perspiration, but may absorb wetness
⇒⇒ Does not contain aluminum
Goodbye to toxic chemicals… switch to Protect!
It’s a fact… we all sweat! And that’s a good thing! Scientific evidence shows that there are many health benefits to sweating. Sweating has even been used to support wellness in many civilizations and cultures through the ages. Sweating has been shown to support muscle recovery, skin health, and cardiovascular health.
In spite of the obvious benefits, many people try to stop or hide the wetness and odor that accompany this natural body process. So… they use products that interfere with the release of toxins from the sweat glands by plugging them up and then cover up any potential odor with strong chemical fragrances.
Now you can choose a natural deodorant that effectively neutralizes odor while allowing the body to purge harmful toxins. New Protect Deodorant is a clean, odor-neutralizing, nutrient-rich deodorant stick with a sensual, calming, grounding beach scent you’ll absolutely love! Practical for both men and women, Protect contains a wealth of nutrients and natural ingredients that…
Combat odor and balance pH
Zinc salts help absorb odor and an amino acid derivative regulates pH levels to minimize odor.
25% Arrowroot powder and charcoal powder work together to absorb excess wetness without blocking pores.
Supports the microbiome
A clinically tested coconut fruit extract fermented with Lactobacillus helps support a healthy skin microbiome.
Omega fatty acids and coconut fruit extract help nourish the delicate underarm area and support the skin’s moisture barrier.
Protects the skin
Antioxidants from muscadine grape seed oil and vitamin E help soothe and protect delicate underarm skin.
Glides on smooth and clear
Natural powders and waxes add a nutrient-rich, silky-smooth feel with zero residue.
Try Protect… you’ll love it, too!

Key ingredients in Protect…
Coconut fruit extract is a liquid derived from the fruit of the coconut tree (Cocos nucifera), which has a high content of skin-conditioning fatty acids and vitamins. Shaklee ferments it with Lactobacillus to provide moisturizing benefits as well as a microbiome-friendly natural preservative system.
Glycine is combined with caprylic acid to create capryloyl glycine, an amino acid derivative, which is plant-based, is antibacterial, and is safe for skin.
Charcoal powder, made from pine tree wood, absorbs excess moisture.
Zinc ricinoleate absorbs and neutralizes odor.
Arrowroot powder has known moisture-absorbing properties and has been cultivated for over 7,000 years.
Lipids, including omegas, help keep our natural skin barrier intact and healthy, keeping moisture in and harmful elements out.
The muscadine grape, one of nature’s rarest, most potent fruits, provide a full spectrum of beneficial polyphenols, including ellagic acid and ellagitannins, which occur exclusively in the muscadine grape.

Introducing minimalist skin care… Pomifera™
Have you ever heard of the Maclura Pomifera fruit? Most people haven’t… and there’s a very good reason. According to a description in SFGate…
“The fruit of Maclura pomifera, commonly called Osage orange tree, has the nickname hedge apple, and the tree is nicknamed bowwood, bois-d’arc and bodark, but “delicious” isn’t on that list. Even most wildlife turn up their noses at the bitter-tasting fruit of this mulberry family (Moraceae) member, though small animals often find safe haven among the tree’s numerous, dangerous thorns. The fruit has not been found toxic to livestock. Osage orange grows up to 60 feet tall. ‘
Even though the green, bumpy pomifera fruit has been called a “trash fruit”, the potent pomifera oil cold pressed and isolated from the seeds, forms the basis for an amazing natural anti-aging skin care line that is a potent source of antioxidants, omega-6, and other bioactives clinically tested to reduce the appearance of age spots, deep wrinkles, emerging wrinkles, and fine lines.
Now available from Shaklee, the Glow Up Bundle* includes four new Pomifera oil products that keep skin care simple:
Balance: Facial Cleanser… formulated with Pomifera oil, sea kelp, and sunflower
Restore: Facial Exfoliant… formulated with Pomifera oil, walnut powder, quinoa, and essential oils
Pomifera Rose: Anti-Aging Serum (also available separately)… formulated with Pomifera oil, essential oils, and coconut
Nourish: Facial Moisturizer… formulated with Pomifera oil, linoleic acid, botanical extracts, and essential oils
*The Pomifera Glow Up Bundle is vegan, cruelty-free, and environmentally friendly. The pomifera oil used in Pomifera products is cold pressed from non-GMO Maclura pomifera fruit that has been sustainably grown in Southern Iowa with zero-input farming techniques. The entire process is carbon neutral, and unused portions of the fruit are composted for use on local land.

How to prevent summer colds…
Nothing interferes with our summer plans… vacations, swimming, picnics, etc… more than catching a cold!
While we don’t think of summer as the time we’re most susceptible to infections, sometimes we’re wrong… and we know it when our throat gets scratchy, we start to feel feverish, and then we start sniffling and sneezing.
With the weather so sunny and warm, what could cause a cold or flu to attack us?
1) During the summer we spend more time outdoors. While being outside is generally good for our health, if we don’t protect our skin from harmful UV rays with Enfuselle SPF 30 for Body we can suffer from sunburn, lowering our body’s ability to resist infection as it attempts to heal itself.
2) Summer is the time we tend to get more exercise. But too much vigorous activity can further deplete our body’s stores of protective nutrients.
3) We get so busy with summer activities that we sometimes forget to eat or take supplements.
4) Crowded summer events expose us to people who carry the cold virus year round. If our resistance is low, we can be the next victim.
So how do you prevent summer colds? In addition to NutriFeron, be sure to take Vitalizer and Life Shake for a nutritional foundation that keeps infections at bay!
