Every day Americans unknowingly slather themselves in toxins that are hiding in soap, shampoo, lotion, after-shave, deodorant, toothpaste, make-up, and more. Unbeknownst to most people, these chemicals penetrate your skin and enter your body.
If you want proof, try this: Rub some crushed garlic on the sole of your foot, and you’ll taste the garlic in your mouth within a few minutes. That’s because anything applied topically on the body penetrates through the skin and is distributed throughout the body. It’s the same mechanism that makes transdermal patches (such as nicotine and birth control) work—the patches adhere to the skin and deliver the medication through the blood stream.
What’s worse is that research proves these chemicals are extremely risky. As early as 1997, the Boston Globe reported that “the Government Accounting Office has identified 125 cosmetic ingredients suspected of causing cancer. Other ingredients may cause birth defects.” Many are also linked to hormonal disruptions … neurological damage … headaches … allergies … depression … chronic fatigue … and mood disorders.
Our government offers no protection. In 1938, the FDA gave the personal care industry the power to regulate itself. While Europe has banned more than 1,100 chemicals in cosmetics, U.S. has banned only 10. That means manufacturers can use almost any toxic ingredient they wish in their personal care products.
“Taking Care” of Your Skin Backfires on You
An increasing number of health practitioners and skin specialists agree that the first step to achieving skin health and maintaining youthfulness is to stop taking care of your skin—at least when it comes to the use of commercial cleansers, moisturizers, and toners.
That’s because toxic chemicals do more than damage your health. They can also visibly harm your skin and accelerate the aging process. Over time, they can thin your skin and make it drier instead of plumper and more hydrated. Your skin can develop fine lines, wrinkles, and a rough, uneven texture.
Fortunately, in spite of what the giants of the cosmetic industry insist, it’s possible to create good skin care products without harmful ingredients. It means trading cheap, synthetic chemicals for pure, natural ingredients.
But before you go running to the health food store to buy your natural skin and personal care products, be forewarned: Just because a product claims to contain only natural ingredients doesn’t mean it’s going to deliver the results you desire.
