Did you know that the Average American woman puts on more then 12 personal care products each and every day? And whats more alarming then that you ask, those 12 products contain more then 168 chemicals. And men are not too far behind, coming in with an average of 8 personal care products used daily. Well you may be wondering, what's the big deal right? That stuff just goes ON our skin, it's not like it actually gets IN our body. Wrong!!!!
Your skin is really considered one of our largest and most absorbent organs in our entire body. So when we are slathering sunscreens and lotions and potions of the like on, it becomes imperative that we exercise caution and use only clean, non toxic, natural, and organic products with no extra additives, preservatives, fillers, emulsifiers, you get the drift.
Some of the biggest culprits are Parabens, fragrance, Triclosan, Sodium Laureth and Lauryl Sulfates and phthalates. Not only are these toxic ingredients linked to a multitude of issues, including: breast cancer, infertility in women, and hormonal disruption to name a few. But they are also know to interrupt the PH balance of our skin... Which should be close to a neutral 7.
Lastly, given the fact that it only takes 26 seconds for these topical personal care products to enter into our bloodstream. We really must be more diligent.
So the next time you go to brush your teeth, or wash your face with your favorite cleanser, or even put on some lotion. Remember to think Clean, and understand the ingredient label. If you can't spell it, or pronounce it, and you've never heard of it in your life....you probably should toss it.
