All Skincare & Cosmetics are not created equal.
Did you know that, the cosmeceutical industry are loaded with toxic chemicals. This is because manufacturers priority is to look for inexpensive ways to increase shelf life of their skin care products.
But we have to remember, that since the skin is designed to be porous, those chemicals are absorbed through the skin and make their way into our blood stream and travel through-out our tissues, often mimicking as estrogen (xenoestrogens) and have been linked to breast cancer, skin cancer, decreased sperm count, liver cancer, and rashes.
We encourage our patients and loved ones to ditch the chemicals and use safe, effective products that use high quality organic ingredients like essential oils, ionized water, fruit acids, antioxidants, and other real extracts (eg: The Body Deli). Imagine the amount of chemicals our bodies consume over the course of a year… or lifetime.
Here is our list of toxic endocrine disruptors to watch for:
- FD & C color pigments
- Polyethylene glycol (PEG)
- Retinyl palmitate
- Sodium lauryl sulfate
- Synthetic fragrances
- Mineral oil
- Imidazolidinyl urea
It is 100% false that we need synthetic chemicals to have amazing skin!
