As a woman of a certain age, Bard Todd became more aware of her changing appearance and was none too pleased. Even though Barb Todd is healthy, exercises regularly, and eats mostly organic whole foods, her old regimen wasn't working. Barb Todd needed something more.
There are many wonderful health and beauty products available. They just weren't solving Barb Todd's problems. As an Argentine tango dancer Barb Todd was especially concerned about her feet. Barb todd's initial attempts produced Lumino's first product, the Himalayan salt and organic coconut oil scrub. It wasn't long before Barb Todd started to notice changes in her feet; the softness and suppleness were improved. Now Barb Todd could dance for hours without getting sore feet.
If Barb Todd could do this to her feet, what about products for the rest of her body? Barb Todd was amazed at the results from these natural health and beauty products. Barb Todd may be a certain age but she now looks and feels years younger.
As these things often happen, somewhere along the way a passion became a business. Here's where the journey took an unexpected turn. Customers using Lumino's body care products began calling and emailing Lumino about how they were using them on their pets and in their home.
Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is used in many of Lumino's body care and bath products. It didn't take a big leap to recognize its many uses in the home. Because Lumino's DE is pure organic food grade it is a pleasure to use. There are no chemical odors or harsh feelings on your hands.
With all natural ingredients Lumino's products will never be as cheap as those produced with petroleum by-products and an array of potentially harmful chemicals, but Lumino can offer products at a great value.
You don't always know where life will take you next but at least you will be going there on strong feet with a clean and sparkling home.

The inspiration for the Lumino Pet product line comes from the experience of using Lumino Spa Origins skin and body care products on our own and other people's pets. They've had a number of customers using their body care products for their pets.
These are spa quality treatments, created with natural and organic ingredients. They contain no toxic chemicals, synthetic preservatives, parabens, or petroleum by-products. Lumino has made minor formula changes to ensure that all the ingredients used are absolutely safe for dogs, cats, birds, and horses. Many pet owners are turning to all-natural solutions rather than pharmaceutical drugs to deal with their pet's stress-related emotions and behavior.

A very versatile product! I use it to control fleas on my cat--I don't worry about using it on her because it's totally non-toxic (unlike most flea control products, of course) and it's the most effective product I have used to control her fleas.
