Women will use approximately 80 chemicals BEFORE breakfast. Wait, what? Yep, in just one product there are tons of ingredients and many of them are known to be carcinogenic and /or endocrine disruptors. It's bad stuff. It's bad for us, our family, and even our pets.
I know when I first started learning more about the harmful ingredients in our cleaning products, I was shocked. It can all be a little overwhelming trying to figure out which ingredients to avoid BUT we are gonna break it down and talk about 6 ingredients that are in most of
Triclosan was BANNED by the FDA in 2016 BUT it is still in soaps, cleaners, and cosmetics.
Parabens used as a preservative and germicide. BANNED in Sweden and Japan.
Phthalates are used to make things pliable and are found in perfumes, kid's toys, and personal care products. Banned in Europe.
Sodium Laurel Sulfate creates that lather that we all love BUT it has been banned in Europe and Canada.
Propylene Glycol is used in cleaners, shampoos, lotions AND the main ingredient in ANTIFREEZE Y'all.
Fragrances are found in candles, perfumes, cosmetics and much more. What is scary about this one is that companies DO NOT have to disclose fragrances on their ingredient list. Fragrance can mean hundreds of different chemicals that you are being exposed to.
How long do you think it takes these chemicals to enter your bloodstream?
26 seconds. Yep, 26 seconds before the harmful effects of all those chemicals are being distributed throughout your body. Since many of these ingredients are endocrine disruptors, it's no wonder that so many people have hormone problems these days.
Here is the exciting part. You do not have to use these 6 harmful ingredients. You have a choice. You can make many of your own cleaning and personal care products using essential oils. Don't worry, it's not hard and takes very few natural ingredients.
