As she was copying the list of ingredients into her prototype, she became concerned. What was viscose rayon and polypropylene? More importantly, what was it doing to our bodies?

Yesterday I delved into the health benefits of the “Ancient Art of Oil Pulling”. If you missed this post, you can read all about it here.
