The answer in most households will be YES!
A recent study in the US involving 100 teenagers has shown they experienced a significant decrease in exposure to chemical toxicity when using personal care products that were free of banned EU substances including parabens (eg. cosmetic preservatives), phthalates (eg.fragrances), triclosan (eg. antibacterial soaps, toothpaste) and oxybenzone (eg. sunscreens). Our teenagers are at the most risk in society due to their reproductive growth phase, coupled with the fact they use more personal care products than the average adult woman. However, the message is clear - it is unquestionable that we are ALL exposed to these harmful ingredients on a daily basis – and not just through personal care – chemicals are in food, environment, air quality, pollution, cleaning products.
Many of the mass producers of commercial skincare are not concerned about your skin’s health, but simply to make money, which it seems is driven by the food industry! Yes, cosmetic giants such as L’Oreal, Clairol, Maybelline, the Body Shop are owned by NESTLE; VO5, Dove, Cutex are owned by UNILEVER. Like many commercial foods these cosmetic products contain chemicals, mineral oil, synthetic fragrances, colours and preservatives – literally junk food for your skin. It’s no wonder that so many consumers have developed sensitive skins, allergies and skin conditions when constantly exposed to all these chemicals, just as health issues develop from processed, chemical laden foods and from the world we live in.
So our question to you is, why would you continue to knowlingly use harmful chemicals on your skin - the body’s largest organ – when you can feed your skin quality natural skincare?
Make the switch today – check YOUR bathroom cupboard and be rid of your toxic products! Read ingredient labelling, get educated and motivated how to nurture your skin - every little bit less your skin absorbs of the bad stuff, the better off you will be.
