Santé, a family run business since 1978, has been bringing great water and great service to their customers for years. When they brought their business online in 1998, they called it Santé for Health, signifying the importance they put on their water filters bringing people clean and healthy water. Over the past 15 years they have developed and sold drinking water filters, water softeners, shower heads and filters, and whole house filtration systems. Santé for Health is concerned about the levels of chlorine in your city water, as well as other contaminates such as rust particles, sulfur, copper and lead that could be in municipality or well water.
Their line of shower filters will help reduce the amount of these chemicals that come out of your shower head and could dry out or change the color of your hair. They have an array of filters that work for both city and well water. They all come with at least one replacement. Each filter has a different lifespan but they range from 3 to 12 months and from 7,500 to 30,000 gallons of water depending on which you choose. All will reduce the amount of chlorine in your water but only the Ultimate Shower Filter, model 9200, will reduce chloramine and sulfur (from well water). Santé for Health has a variety of items to keep your water clean, healthy and tasting good.
At their affordable prices, how can you not protect yourself and your family against the harmful contaminants that could be in your water?

CELEBRITY BABY SCOOP HAS THE EXCLUSIVE INSIDE ON WHAT STAR MOMS PLAN TO DO FOR MOTHER'S DAY
In their feature "Star Moms Share Mother's Day Plans," Celebrity Baby Scoop gives an inside look at how star moms like Tori Spelling and Giuliana Rancic plan to celebrate all things mom.
Reality star Giuliana Rancic, who welcomed her first child, son Duke, in August 2012, shares, “We’re planning a fancy bunch with the whole family at a nice hotel in Newport Coast and then a walk on the beach. Really, I just want to relax and enjoy the day together as a whole family.”
Playboy model and mom-of-one Holly Madison opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her hopes for her first Mother's Day. She says, “I hope my boyfriend and I can find something fun to do that someone only a few months old will enjoy. Maybe we will take her to the Springs Preserve (a park here in Vegas) and see if she reacts to any of the animals and the nature."
Supermodel and supermom-of-four Niki Taylor says, “I don’t know what my family has planned for me. I just want to be with my babies and I hope I am with my mom and my sister. My mom is still an amazing mom and she’s a wonderful grandmother as well. I thank her and always pray for her. I still always call her for advice. To me, Mother’s Day is about my mom and I want to be with her on that day. It is a day for the family to be together."
TV personality Courtney Lopez is now expecting her second child with hubby Mario Lopez. She discussed with Celebrity Baby Scoop what Mother's Day means to her.
“Being a mother has been the most important and rewarding experience of my life, and having a day to celebrate motherhood for myself and for my own mother is such a treat," Courtney shares. "I feel very blessed in life, and wish all the mothers in the world a very happy Mother’s Day!"
The Real Housewives of New York alum Kelly Bensimon is a single mom to two daughters. She shares, “I just love Mother’s Day because I love to be with my kids. Last year I had brunch with my kids and my best friend who is also my hairdresser. I love Mother’s Day because it is an opportunity for me to be with my kids and not have to parent them...I can’t believe that I am the mother of two gorgeous girls. It’s something that I respect a lot and I want to celebrate it with them. It’s not about me; it is about us.”
Reality star and mom-of-four Tori Spelling opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about being grateful this Mother's Day. She states, “For me, Mother’s Day means four amazing miracles. I have a lot to celebrate this Mother’s Day…an amazing, complete family. So, I am really, really blessed. I don’t know what we’re planning.”

Organic skin care is the care of the skin using naturally derived ingredients (such as herbs, roots, essential oils and flowers) combined with naturally occurring carrier agents, preservatives, surfactants, humectants and emulsifiers (everything from natural soap to oils to pure water). The classic definition of natural skin care is based on using botanically sourced ingredients currently existing in or formed by nature, without the use of synthetic chemicals, and manufactured in such a way to preserve the integrity of the ingredients.
As a result of this definition, many people who use natural skin care products, generally make their own products at home from naturally occurring ingredients. Many people use natural skin care recipes to make remedies to care for their skin at home. Many spas and skin care salons now focus on using more naturally derived skin care products.
Natural skin care has its roots in the 4th millennium BC in Egypt with natural skin care treatments for a variety of skin conditions. One such treatment consists of bullock's bile, whipped ostrich eggs, olive oil, dough and resin mixed with milk. In the modern age many people with unique skin types and needs (sensitive skin, dry skin, oily skin) have turned to natural skin care solutions.
Some examples of natural skin care ingredients include jojoba, safflower oil, rose hip seed oil, shea butter, beeswax, witch hazel, aloe vera, tea tree oil, and chamomile. Many of these natural ingredient combinations can be tailored specifically to the individual's skin type or skin condition.
Scientists now have a better understanding of how disease and environmental toxins are linked and have proven that exposure to chemical fertilizers and pesticides does impact our health. Some pesticides have been shown to disrupt the human endocrine system (which regulates our hormones), while others have been linked to breast cancer, uterine cancer and asthma. Our bodies have great difficulty processing or eliminating toxins because chemicals that are not natural confuse the body and it will either eliminate them or perhaps store them in a "safe" place in the body. These could be fat cells or lymph glands, etc.

Clinical trials are sets of tests in medical research and drug development that generate safety and efficacy data for health interventions (e.g., drugs, diagnostics, devices, therapy protocols). They are conducted only after satisfactory information has been gathered on the quality of the nonclinical safety, and health authority/ethics committee approval is granted in the country where approval of the drug or device is sought.
Depending on the type of product and the stage of its development, investigators initially enroll volunteers and/or patients into small pilot studies, and subsequently conduct larger scale studies in patients that often compare the new product with others already approved for the affliction of interest. As positive safety and efficacy data are gathered, the number of patients is typically increased. Clinical trials can vary in size, and can involve a single research entity in one country or many such entities in multiple countries.
A full series of trials may incur sizable costs, and the burden of paying for all the necessary people and services is usually borne by the sponsor, which may be a governmental organization or a pharmaceutical, biotechnology or medical device company. When the diversity of required support roles exceeds the resources of the sponsor, a clinical trial is managed by an outsourced partner, such as a contract research organization or a clinical trials unit in the academic sector.
