Chemicals … they are everywhere!!
The average woman wears 515 chemicals a day!!!!
Did you know that putting certain products on your skin may be worse than eating them? When you put beauty products on your skin they are absorbed straight into your bloodstream and go directly to your organs!! Woman who use makeup take in 5 lbs of harmful chemicals each year through their skin.
Your skin is your largest organ and absorbs up to 60% of what you put on it. Just think about what your skin care routine involves: soaps, lotions, cosmetics. According to an article in the Huffington Post, the biggest offender is lotion. Lotions have many toxic chemicals in them including benzophenone and formaldehyde, human carcinogens that are found in lotions, sunscreen, and body wash.
If your skincare products contain ingredients you would NOT eat, you shouldn’t be putting them on your skin! “Cancer and Health risk experts just concluded reviews that indicate mainstream cosmetics and personal hygiene products pose the highest cancer risk exposures to the general public, HIGHER than smoking”. (Cancer Prevention Coalition press release June 2002).
