Years ago we began a new diet regime for our son, Hayden. It was mainly a gluten-free/casein-free diet. We were hoping to see some behavioral changes, and maybe even physical changes. We noticed after changing to rice pasta from wheat pasta, Hayden's digestion improved dramatically - and his hyper behavior mellowed. We were ecstatic. He didn't start talking, and he was still Autistic, so we weren't under any illusion that the diet change would create miracles. However, the digestion change felt like a miracle to us. We continued with the rice pasta, rice on it's own, rice parmesan, and anything gluten-free/casein-free we could find.


Finally, after years of this, Robert brought home a box of Quinoa pasta - elbow noodles. I balked - especially since it wasn't my idea. I left the box in the cupboard, making excuses that I'd already prepared his usual meal of rice, fake parmesan, olive oil, and gluten-free soy sauce - plus, I really didn't think Hayden would like it. We'd already tried corn pasta, with some success, but decided not to put that in his diet too often, and also bean pasta, which tasted awful to Hayden. One day, there was no other option but the Quinoa pasta. Robert had explained the amazing health benefits, that it was from South America, has been around for years, and not only was it gluten-free, it was a complete protein!! So, the day had come to try quinoa pasta. Hayden LOVED it!!! I was amazed! It had a nice texture, taste and look. We had a new option!!

I then began cooking quinoa, and after many practice batches, to perfection. Hayden now has it as an option for his breakfasts, lunches and dinner. It can totally replace rice or pasta and have delicious results.

Quinoa Scramble

Robert wasn't satisfied. He felt that if quinoa was so good for us on the inside - why not the outside too? He was right - as always!! He discovered Hydrolyzed Quinoa Protein, which means that the grain has been broken down with water. We've always thought of quinoa as a superfood - but now we really believe it is a super food for the skin and hair.


Hydrolyzed Quinoa Protein provides incredibly beneficial results for the hair, and that is the reason we include it as one of the many amazing ingredients in our shampoo and conditioner.

 - It actually repairs, hydrates and nourishes the hair.  

- It protects it from environmental damage while repairing any existing damage.

- It leaves the hair shiny and smooth and feeling better with each wash and condition.

- It creates an environment where the each strand of hair feels nourished and healthy from root to tip.

Eco-Armour Shampoo & Conditioner

We also use Hydrolyzed Quinoa Protein in our serum and lotion for its amazing hydrating ability. It is one of the ingredients in our advanced serum and lotion that repairs damage to the skin, and creates a protective barrier against environmental stress, while nourishing the skin from the outside in.

We are so proud of the ingredients we so carefully select for each of our products, and we want you to know how special the products are that we lovingly make for you.

We look forward to sharing more about our amazing ingredients in future blogs!!

Thank you!
