Toxins in Personal Care Products

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

In Europe, manufacturers of personal care products, such as cosmetics and skin care lotions and the like, are required by law to remove 1100 chemicals from the personal care products imported to Europe.  In the United States, manufacturers of skin care products and other cosmetic products leave the chemicals in the product because only 9 chemicals are barred from the American products, and no one is telling them they must remove the chemicals.  The FDA has no apparent oversight and thus, it is “buyer beware.”

If you care about your health, or the health of a loved one who uses beauty products such as skin creams or other makeups and cleansers, you’ll want to look closely at using skin care products that have a minimal amount of chemicals in them. Look especially for those that re 100% pure organic and safe for the skin and your health. Why put harmful, toxic chemicals onto your skin?

According to Dr. Samuel Epstein, former head of the Cancer Prevention Coalition, “It is more dangerous to put a product on your skin than to eat it.”

Think about it the next time you put that moisturizer on your skin. Do you really know what chemicals it contains? And, if you do, are they harmful? Are they toxic? Don’t play games with your life and your skin.
