I’m sure many of you know (as most of you are holistic), that personal care products can be toxic. Many of us (including me!) have difficulty with methylation.
Methylation is a biochemical process at the cellular level that affects everything in our body, especially detoxification. If you do not detox well, you have to pay attention to the toxins that are going in through your water, air, food, and skincare products.
Personal care products are one of the least regulated industries in the US.
– The average American woman puts between 12-20 chemicals on their skin 365 days a year.
– 80 percent of the ingredients that are used in daily personal care products have never been tested for safety.
– The European Union has banned 1,300 chemicals used as ingredients in beauty products. The US has only banned 11!
You should stay away from the following ingredients:
Danger #1: Parabéns
Danger #2: Synthetic Colors
Danger #3: Fragrance
Danger #4: Phthalates
Danger #5: Triclosan
Danger #6: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)/Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES)
Danger #7: Formaldehyde
Danger #8: Toluene
Danger #9: Propylene glycol
Danger #10: Sunscreen chemicals
