Why put toxins in your body?
Our skin absorbs some of what gets put on it. How much actually gets absorbed is a topic for another day. Either way, I don’t want to put chemicals on my skin.
We also ingest products through the mouth – as with lip balms. Sprays and powders can be inhaled. Hand creams can be ingested when we eat with our hands.
Sticking to plant-based, natural products will reduce your toxic chemical intake.
We are Exposed to so Many Chemicals Everyday
Men are exposed to less chemicals daily, but on average men use 6 products a day, possibly exposing them up to 80 chemicals a day.
We would be so much better off if we could lower this number significantly.
These Chemicals are Reeking Havoc on your Endocrine System
Phtalates and Parabens are known endocrine disruptors. Over-consumption can lead to reproductive troubles.
Many chemicals in personal care products have been shown to increase the risk of cancer. . Formaldehyde – a know carcinogen is lurking in many personal care products. Remember the smell of the frogs you dissected in science class? They were sealed in formaldehyde. Why would you put that on your skin?
No skin allergies
If you have allergies, recurring skin rashes (or eczema), itchy or dry skin, or even very oily skin, then you might be worsening the problem by using products with certain chemicals and additives. Organic skin care provides a natural way for you to cleanse your skin and hair. If you have very sensitive skin, natural hair care and skin care products might even help prevent outbreaks of rashes or skin redness and irritation.
