The toxic ingredients used in a majority of personal care products are unnecessary and outright deceitful. If somebody had come straight up to you and said, "I am selling this product with a lovely lavender extract in it and about lets say a minimum of 5 known carcinogens, hormone disrupters and skin irritants. Do you want some? It is cheap and I have a lot of it! Please just try it!"LIST OF COMMON TOXIN IN YOUR PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS
NO WAY! they aren't going to tell you this. In fact they are so scared of the public having awareness of this that they go to great lengths to hide it and dress it up. For example how many of you use 'natural products' thinking it is going to be of some great benefit. Think again, these manufactures are the most cunning of all. They know you want quality, they know you have a bit of an understanding of the harmful effects of synthetic products (generally known as standard products). They want some of that market and they have no ethical morals in achieving it. I particularly love the way they describe hidden dangers as 'derived from coconut'. By the way did they forget to tell you that once they derived it from the coconut they changed the chemical compound so much that it is nothing more than a chemical carcinogen. Please always check out the long chemical word that they are saying is derived from coconut to see the truth. After all heroin is derived from the poppy flower! Hmmmm......does that mean heroin is good for you?
So how do chemicals that are classified as hazardous get into your personal care?
1. Start with importing a small amount in a pre-made solution then gradually increase the dosage after it is already in!There are a number of ways to get dangerous chemicals approved.
2. claim it is not for oral consumption (lets hope you don't get any of those bubbles in your ears, eyes, or mouth. Hey, and stop breathing while using that loved hairspray!)
3.Quantity small amounts are seen as harmless. But lets think about it. Do you only use one product with a small amount 3-4 times a week?
4. Independent testing of the harmful effects. Do you trust them? After all it is the era of money talks and under the table is such a great way to get things done.
Below is a list of COMMON CHEMICALS used in your personal care products. I advise you to sit with this list and go through your ingredient list on your products.
