What’s In YOUR Personal Care Products?
In the morning when you do your daily morning routine, you take a shower, put on some body lotion, some hair gel and makeup etc, you’re probably not thinking “What’s in them?”
However, you SHOULD give it a thought.
As you may know, your skin is your largest organ, and anything you put on it should contain only the best and safest ingredients from nature.
Some chemicals used in personal care products and cosmetics can potentially sabotage your health and well-being.
Please note that there are companies using the label “natural skin care” on their products, but they are still using toxic synthetic ingredients. Therefore to be sure a product is “natural” you have to read the labels or buy from a company you trust or look for the USDA organic seal (in the US).
There are several great reasons to incorporate all-natural products into your daily beauty regimen.
Choose safe and natural skin care, cosmetics and other personal care products – for your own and your family’s health benefits long-term.

Your skin is your body’s largest organ and first line of defense. This “covering” is a complex system made up of nerves, glands, and cell layers, each having a role in your health. It serves as a buffer that helps protect you from extreme temperatures and toxic chemicals, while also producing antibacterial compounds that defend you against infection. Your skin also plays a role in the production of vitamin D.
Although your skin is capable of all of these functions, it needs protection, too. If not cared for properly, it can become dry and rough, produce wrinkles, and/or become susceptible to certain skin problems.
Skin Care 101: How to Promote Healthy Skin
There are a couple of ways to promote healthy skin. First, eating right means feeding your skin nutrients and antioxidants. I recommend consuming only organic whole foods and avoiding processed foods, which are high in harmful compounds that may damage your skin.
Second, you should be careful with what you apply on your skin. I strongly believe that, like in your diet, you should take extra caution in choosing what you apply to your skin topically. Your skin is highly permeable and can easily absorb whatever it touches.
Before you apply another personal care product on your skin, it important to be a conscious, savvy reader of labels. Are you sure the ingredients in the product are safe for your skin and not a chemical cocktail?
They Promise You Great Skin and Beauty – But These May Come at a ‘Toxic’ Price
You’ll be surprised to know how many chemicals enter your body through the use of skin care products like lotions, shampoos, and cosmetics.
Most personal care products on the market contain toxic chemicals like parabens, phthalates, and triclosan – chemicals linked to hormonal imbalance, toxicities, reproductive health problems, and even cancer. Instead of nourishing your skin, these chemicals will disrupt your skin and overall health.
