It’s been over 20 years since I transitioned our family into the world of a whole, real food diet. During that time more I started to read labels on the food I was buying, the more I became aware of what I was putting in my body and informed enough to make better choices. I stopped buying packaged foods, pre made dressings and spice packets that contained ingredients I could not pronounce.
After a while I realized that perhaps I should read the labels on my beauty products too. Never did it occur to me that what I was putting on my skin could be equally, if not even more harmful as ingesting chemicals through food. Make-up, shampoo, deodorant, hairspray, lotion, and the list goes on and on. What ingredients are in those products and does it really matter?
Let’s think about it for a second. Skin is the body’s largest organ. It absorbs about 60-70% of what we feed it with. What we put on our skin makes its way into our blood, tissues and organs, and therefore has an impact on our health just as much as, if not more than what we put in our mouth.
If you are putting toxic chemicals on your skin, I’m sorry to tell you that you are inevitably making yourself toxic as they tend to accumulate over time.
There are literally thousands of chemicals used in personal care products, and the FDA does not require any mandatory testing for these products before they are sold.
Knowing that I began researching product ingredients finding that, shockingly, beauty and skin care companies are allowed to use almost any ingredient they wish in their formulations, and products are not reviewed for safety before they’re put on the market. A few of the most common chemicals/harmful substances found in beauty products, cosmetics and household products include phthalates, lead, aluminum, sodium laureth sulfate, BHA, boric acid, fragrance (or parfum), and parabens, among many others.
During this time, I began purchasing different beauty care products and started making some of my own. Over the years, I have learned that we don’t need over-priced chemical cosmetics and personal beauty care products to look and smell our best. The fact is, I can make products in my own kitchen that are not only less expensive but are also more effective and really truly nourish my skin and hair.
