Pit Putty – Early 2014 I Luke and Laura received news that Laura’s colleague had been diagnosed with skin cancer. This really opened our eyes, especially since her doctor’s professional advice was to stop using unnatural skincare products that contain chemicals such as SLS, found in detergent soaps and body washes.
