How Toxic are your Favorite Hair Care products?
THE NAKED TRUTH ABOUT WHAT’S IN YOUR BEAUTY PRODUCTS & HOW HARMFUL THEY REALLY ARE.
Rare Elements is leading the way in Non-Toxic Salon Quality Hair Care. EWG Skin Deep Cosmetics Database lets you know if your favorite products are toxic or not. This is the first time a 10 isn’t considered better.
Your skin covers your body and acts as a physical barrier to many of the pollutants in the atmosphere. When you use products on your skin such as cosmetics, lotions, and shampoos, the ingredients in these products come into direct contact with your body’s largest organ; your skin. You may ask yourself, where do the ingredients in the products go? Modern research at the Herb Research Foundation found that the skin absorbs up to 60% of the chemicals in products that it comes into contact with directly into the bloodstream.
In many cases, the long-term effects of many of the chemical additives in our personal care products are not known. However, other chemical additives are known carcinogens. These types of chemicals can cause cancer in humans. Such chemicals include some artificial colors in cosmetics, DEA’s and synthetic Fragrances.
What are your alternatives?
Luckily, there are alternatives to personal care products filled with synthetically produced ingredients. Increasingly, cosmetic manufacturers are answering the public’s demand for alternatives to the chemically loaded beauty and grooming supplies. As a consumer, you have the ability to decrease the number of preservatives and chemical additives your skin comes into contact with and therefore, have a choice when it comes to buying natural or synthetic cosmetic products.
To avoid using toxic products, it’s important to first read what’s inside the bottle before falling for the marketing hype on the outside.
