CRITICAL FACTS THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SKIN CARE PRODUCTS TO
PREVENT YOUR BODY FROM BECOMING TOXIC!
The NIOSH (National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health) analysed 2,983 chemicals that consumers apply
daily in their personal care products. Astoundingly, they found the following:-
Over 884 of the chemicals in these products were toxic;
More than 313 actually caused biological mutation;
Exactly 218 caused reproductive complications in humans;
Almost 800 (778 to be exact) caused acute toxicity;
Alarmingly, 148 of these chemicals caused tumors; and
Another 376 of them were responsible for skin and eye irritations!
Next time you look to buy chemical-based skin care products, consider the following:-
||Your body aborbs up to 60% of everything you put on your skin.
||The other 40% is likely to go down the shower drain and contaminate the environment.
||Many of these chemicals are manufactured in factories that emit high levels of CO2.
||Some of these chemicals are potentially toxic and harmful to the body.
CHEMICALS FREQUENTLY FOUND IN MANY SKIN AND HAIR CARE
PRODUCTS THAT ARE POTENTIALLY TOXIC
It is not always easy to work out whether a particular skin care product is chemical-free. The reason for this may be the use of a scientific or industry name that you aren't familiar with. One thing you can be certain of is that the word "chemical" is unlikely to appear on the label!
One of the big culprits are the Parabens. The main reasons why many companies use these chemicals is to extend the shelf life of the products. They are also cheaper than natural preservatives. You'll commonly find Methyl Paraben listed as an ingredient on product labels. It is highly toxic and should be avoided.
Other chemical preservatives include Diazolidinyl Urea and Imidazolidinyl Urea. These are well established as a primary cause of contact dermatitis (American Academy of Dermatology) and the ingredients are derived from ANIMAL urine.
Then there's the chemicals used to make Synthetic Colours. Many of these are cancer-producing agents (i.e. carcinogenic). Look for labels such as as D&C or FD&C, followed by a color and then a number (e.g. D&C Green No. 4 or FD&C Red No. 2).
Let's not forget the chemicals found in all Synthetic Fragrances. About 95% of the chemicals used in synthetic frangrances are derived from petrochemicals! These artifical fragrances are made using as many as 200 ingredients. The law only requires that the word "fragrance" on the label so you may not know one way or the other. What is known is that some synthetic fragrances can produce symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, redness, rashes, dermatitis, hives, vomitign, itching and skin irritation generally.
Always proceed with caution whenever you see “fragrance” or "parfum" on the ingredients list. Hair shampoos and conditioners with these terms on the label may well mean that, hidden behind these phrases, are chemicals that may pose an array of potential irritants to you, especially if you are prone to scalp or skin sensitivity.
Virtually all commercial hair shampoos contain Sodium Laureth Sulfate or Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate (SLES). The main reason for using these ingredients are that they foam up particularly well. However, they are nothing more than cheap, harsh chemical detergents and surfactants.
There are many other chemicals to be found in everyday personal care products. In fact, at least one study has shown that the average woman unwittingly applies 176 different chemicals to her body every day, as part of her normal beauty /makeup routine!
