Did you know that women apply on average 168 chemicals to their body every day? Shocking huh! Its no wonder that our poor livers are over burdened and tired out. And if the liver is over worked, then this leads to issues with hormonal balance.
How do you know whats good and whats not when it comes to the ingredients in your personal care products?
Well, here are a list of ingredient names to AVOID so you can know if your make up or skincare products are good or not:
- Fragrance, perfume or parfum
Phthalates – these are the fixatives for the fragrance, they help you to continue smelling fragrances on your clothes for weeks and weeks
- Every ingredient ending in the word paraben
- Sodium Lauryl sulfate (SLS)
- Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) – a more mild version of SLS but the process it is made by causes a carcinogenic by-product
The skin is the largest organ of the body and so it absorbs almost all of what we put on it. So think to yourself, “would I put this product in my mouth?” because when you put it directly onto your skin, that is what you are essentially doing.
If people are already oestrogen dominant they are adding more stress to their body by using toxic products. Sadly, there are so few regulations on companies when it comes to what goes into your personal care products, so it is down to you to be extra vigilant on what you put onto your skin.
