Examine the product labels on these goods within your household, mouthwash, toothpaste, shampoo, body lotion, baby lotion, soap, lipstick and hair conditioner. What you will find is a toxic cocktail of chemicals.
There are a host of chemicals to avoid but the following list is a good starting point: isopropyl alcohol, aluminum, benzyl alcohol, cationic surfactants, coal tar, diethanolamine, ethanol, formaldehyde, hydroquinone, imidazolidinyl urea, lead, mercury, p-phenylenediamine, paraben derivatives, petroleum distillates, phthalates, poltethylene glycol (PEG), quaternary ammonium compounds, silica, sulphates, synthetic fragrances, toluene, triclosan, triethanolamine and the list goes on. Look for a future post on Skin Care Toxins.
My best advice is to carefully select a company committed to protecting the health of you and your family. Look for a company that has signed the “Guideline for Safe Cosmetics” from the Natural Products Association.
