Why Are All Our Products Made in America?

Once upon a time, there were small town communities where you could purchase Mrs. Sally’s homemade preserves; where Mr. George’s son fixed your car and you could depend on the quality of farm fresh vegetables or freshly baked breads from the people you knew best; your neighbors.  The economy and morale of these small communities survived and thrived because of patrons like you.  With the evolution of time and the advent of bigger cities mom and pop stores gradually became few and far between.  However, products being made in America is still being done.  Some have turned into larger corporations and serve a larger community. Yes, our backyard has grown, but we can still maintain the purchasing of quality products by continuing to buy goods and services, whenever possible, that are still made in the USA.

Buying in America has long term and far-reaching benefits.  Let’s take a look at a few of them.

  1. When you buy American you save and/or create jobs in America.  This is the foundation of our economy and its preservation is paramount to our stability and survival.
  2. When you buy American you know there are legal regulations to maintain product quality standards, protect human rights (such as minimum wage regulations) and as well as the environment. We have a greater chance at being the cause of a healthy Earth for our children.
  3. When you buy American the money stays in the United States. That money pays the workers that are responsible for creating your product and those people, in turn; spending that money on American made goods and services and this creates a healthy cycle.  That cycle is the stable economy we all depend on.

As a global leader, the United States of America has a responsibility to be an example to other nations.  Being a model for economic sustainability, stability and prosperity requires maintaining the flow of resources within America.  Think about it. Steady employment, healthy wages, and an economic system you can trust are key to building and maintaining a successful and happy life.

Suggested Home Remedies for: Psoriasis

Basic Causes of Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition. It is understood that the immune system and family history can play roles in its development. The immune system is somehow triggered, which causes a series of events, including inflammation and acceleration of skin cell growth. Instead of falling off (shedding), the cells pile up on the surface of the skin, forming psoriatic plaques.

People with psoriasis typically experience patches of thick, red skin covered with silvery scales called plaques.

There are many kinds of psoriasis. The most common is Plaque Psoriasis. Other common types are Scalp Psoriasis and Nail Psoriasis. While there is no known cure for psoriasis, there are remedies that can help reduce and/or alleviate the condition. For many people psoriasis is a social stigma that causes pain, itching and emotional pain as well.(Also read “Basic Causes of Dry Skin” in our Suggested Home Remedies for DRY, ITCHY SKIN, Normal to Severe, on this website).

Ultra Balm’s Suggested Home Remedies
