Story of Cosmetics –

A recent study conducted by a natural deodorant company has estimated that the average woman wears about 515 chemicals a day.
Lead in lipstick
Sodium Laureth Sulfate in shampoos and hand soap
• Sodium Saccharin in toothpaste
• Toxic chemicals in hair color
Phthalates in perfumes and hair sprays
Aluminum in deodorant

These are just a few!

We may not see any short term effects in the use of these products, but rest assured that long-term effects exist. These toxic chemicals we put on our skin or inhale daily are entering our bloodstream and are contributing to bacterial and viral infections and may even be causing cancer. For me, the chemicals have wreaked havoc on my hormones.

I, too, desire beautiful, healthy skin and hair. The great news is that it is possible to achieve these things without using any product with chemicals. Tomorrow I'll discuss ways to get gorgeous skin without buying another expensive, toxic product off the shelf. I will also share non-toxic products that I love (so that you don't have to play the guessing game) and my secret weapon when it comes to buying safe beauty products.

Today, though, I challenge you to look at the ingredients in your makeup, perfume, shampoo, toner, deodorant and other beauty products. If you can't pronounce the ingredients, chances are they may be harmful and toxic to your health.
