Why Avoid Chemicals in Skin Care Products?
To date, the European Union has banned over 1,100 chemicals in cosmetics, while the U.S. FDA has banned only 10. Many of these chemicals have been linked to cancer, birth defects, genetic mutation and organ damage. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and absorbs an average of 64% of what you apply to it, sending it directly in to your bloodstream.
Because of these high-absorbtion rates, many of today’s medications, for example smoking cessation products, are often prescribed as patches and applied directly to the skin – this ensures the medication gets in to your bloodstream quickly. So think about this – if you use skin care products containing pesticide-loaded, processed or chemical-based ingredients, these will be transported quickly from the outer surface of the skin into your body’s circulation – given the links to serious issues mentioned above, think of the potential damage this could cause to your body.
Many people today are turning to skin care products containing certified organic ingredients – by doing so, they benefit from the very best ingredients nature has to offer, without putting their body at risk from harmful toxins derived from processed, unnatural, chemical-based ingredients.
