It is that time of the year again…A time when the music starts pumping and Burning Man lovers round the world (aka “Burners”) begin the process of planning their trip to the desert festival in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. It is also a sweet time for Action Wipes because Burning Man 2007 was the first real test of our all natural body wipes “for when you can’t shower” concept where we gifted cases of plain-wrapped body wipes to hundreds of burners and were overwhelmed (in a fabulous way) with gratitude and positive reviews. That gave us the confidence to go forward with the Action Wipes concept. We are proud to say that we are again included in the 2013 Burning Man Resource Listing. That is a huge honor!
The key thing in the desert and especially at Burning Man is staying clean, healthy and party-ready in really rugged and tough conditions. Burning Man is good for the soul, but at the same time, you need to be good to your body. Just look at the Burning Man Survival Guide, where the message is pretty clear: “You are responsible for your own survival, safety, comfort, and well being…”
Whether it is camping at Burning Man or going to the beach, you’ve got to take care of your body. There are chemicals and parabens in so many products that it is difficult to keep track, but we know many people use generic wet wipes or baby wipes since showers are not available and it is absolutely paramount that no soapy water (gray water) be dumped on the playa. Many baby products including baby wipes contain parabens, as well as other body wipes on the market, but the concentrated use of them over the course of several days (or literally weeks) is not just bad for you body in terms of potential cancer-causing ingredients, but also because many other wipes contain alcohol, which dries out your skin…the last thing you want in high alkaline desert! Do your research and keep using Action wipes—a safe, natural and proven way to clean up when you can’t shower.
All Action Wipes products are formulated in U.S. Laboratories and we NEVER use synthetic fragrances or perfumes, parabens or test on animals, which is so important to our philosophy of well being.
So have fun, take care of your body, prevent playa foot and remember – never flush or throw *any* type of wet wipes in toilets or porta potties!
