healevateIf you’re health-conscious, chances are you’ve taken a look at the ingredients on a food label before, even if only occasionally. Some of us health nuts endlessly obsess about every last item we find on that list. But what about the ingredients in our personal care products? How many of us have even glanced at what’s in our shave gel, moisturizers, or toothpastes? It’s easy to feel like these products don’t directly interact with our body’s internal biochemistry. After all, we don’t ingest them, so how bad can they really be?
The truth is, when it comes to slathering these goods onto our bodies daily, ignorance may not be bliss. Sayer Ji, founder of GreenMedInfo, says: “Consumers need to be at least five times more aware of a skin care product’s toxicity than that of food.”
Your skin is the largest organ in your body and it readily absorbs much of what you put on it. While some products simply make problems worse (such as moisturizers that cause dry skin), others can cause cancer or hormone imbalances, due to harmful ingredients. When it comes to what you put on your body, you want to be informed. - Link In bio
