What You May Not Know about Your Child’s Immune System by Kim Walls, MS

§   The front line defenses in the immune system are, not surprisingly, located at the points of exposure: The respiratory system (lungs), the digestive system (stomach) and the skin.
§   These three areas are responsible for bringing harmful elements such as germs, viruses and toxins in to and then out of the body.
§   One important way to reduce the body’s workload and, therefore, improve your child’s immunity is to decrease (or, ideally, eliminate) your child’s exposure to everyday, unnecessary chemicals.
§   This is particularly important for kids under the age of five, when immune functions, including those of the skin, are still in a developmental stage.
§   Preschool and other group care settings are where a child’s immune system often meets its first biological challenge – germs, viruses and bacteria – that, generally, and typically temporarily, can make your child ill; but that ultimately serve to help develop immunity.
§   Chemical challenges to the immune system can represent a much higher risk to the body as they can cause damage at genetic and cellular levels.

The selection of the co-sponsors for the Green Your School Grant are manufacturers and retailers of products that embrace the program’s directive toward helping to reduce young children’s exposure to chemicals.

CleanWell is passionately committed to developing innovative solutions that offer a way to clean without compromise. For information about CleanWell Company visit

Sales of Episencial products benefit the company's philanthropic partner Healthy Child, Healthy World and its mission to protect children from harmful chemicals. For more information, go to
