How Safe Are Your Skincare products? Here’s the EASIEST Way to Find Out.

I’m sure you’ve had to hear by now how toxic most of all skincare products are for us.

The problem with skincare products is that currently there is no regulation on the words “natural” or “organic” when it comes to skincare so you can’t always believe what the labels and packaging claim.

Reading the ingredient list for yourself is your best bet, but this is time consuming and confusing for some people. Here are some of the worst ingredients to avoid:

Parabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulfates, Mineral oil, Phthalates, Oxybenzone, Polyethylene glycols, or PEGs, FD&C Color Pigments, Synthetic Fragrances.

 Yes, it’s true that our bodies are great at filtering out these toxic ingredients from our system, that’s how amazing our bodies really are; but the problem is between skin care and other environmental toxins we come into contact with every day and the nasty food we eat, our bodies are overloaded with trying to rid of the junk!  When our bodies are busy trying to get rid of the crap and chemicals we load it up with daily it can’t focus on more important things like fighting off illness and disease.  Let me say this again!

“When our bodies are busy trying to get rid of the chemicals & junk we load it up with daily it can’t focus on more important things like fighting off illness and disease.”
