Do you know what you are putting on (and in) your body?
The beauty business relies on cleverly crafted marketing campaigns that convince consumers that any problem can be fixed with the right product. Limp and fine hair can be voluminous, wrinkles can fade, lips are kissably soft and acne will forever disappear. As each product fails, consumers purchase others without question. Bathroom cabinets are often stocked full with the latest beauty products that are slathered onto the skin every day. However, consumers don't know that many chemicals found in these products can be readily absorbed by the skin, traveling in body through the bloodstream. In fact, US researchers report that one in eight of the 82,000 ingredients used in personal care products are industrial chemicals, including carcinogens, pesticides, reproductive toxins and hormone disrupters. These chemicals are applied and absorbed by your skin every single day.
