Beware of Toxins

Did you know that our bodies absorb SIXTY PERCENT of what we put on our skin? And children absorb 40-50% MORE than we do?  Skincare products are not regulated by the FDA, therefore who knows what they put in those things.  Buying organic does not just apply to your food supply…Try buying organic when it comes to beauty products, cleaning supplies, etc.  The amount of environmental toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis is unheard of, therefore the more you can choose toxin free, organic products the BETTER! Below is a list of toxic chemicals found in cosmetic and skin care products. As I have mentioned before, reading labels is extremely important. These chemicals are linked to diseases and other health problems.

    Finding sunscreen (I’m using one that has an orange juice base), tampons, and other really basic needs that don’t have gnarly compounds in them was a worthwhile endeavor. Thanks for reminding me.

  2. Very good information! We must continue to spread the knowledge.
