32 Y ou had me at paraben free," cajoled the invitation to a morning fĂȘte that introduced a coterie of savvy women to the purest of lifestyles. Estela Cockrell gathered friends at the Cherie Flores Garden Pavilion in Hermann Park for a crash course in living sans the bad stuff. "When you walk out the door in the morning, you have as many as 150 toxic chemicals on your body," she told the startled group. Cockrell's testimonial to living pure, combined with insights shared by Dr. Shezi Kirmani of Pure MD and biological dentist Dr. Rebecca Steinbach of Aspen, had guests taking notes, shaking their heads, and groaning at revelations about their favorite products. Never fear, Cockrell's new e-commerce website, Switch2pure. com, offers scientifically researched beauty and home products that are free of all endocrine disruptors and cancer-causing and inflammatory ingredients.
