With cancer now responsible for one in every four deaths in the US, mounting research continues to expose how common chemicals in home and beauty products are closely linked to cancer. Many Americans may not realize that the most significant exposure they will have with toxic chemicals is through the home and beauty products they use every day. In spite of the mounting research, loopholes in US federal law allows the beauty industry to put unlimited amounts of chemicals into personal care products with no required testing or monitoring of health effects.
Our beauty products are perhaps the most critical products we come into contact with. Just think about that favorite lip gloss of yours. Did you know it could contain petrolatum, a petrochemical closely linked to cancer? It’s not tough for that to end up in your mouth and in your system. Or how about that store bought lotion you rub all over your body each night before bed? Many store bought lotions contain parabens, petrolatum, and synthetic fragrance, which has all been linked to cancer.
It can feel like an uphill battle to educate yourself on the harmful chemicals cosmetic and beauty companies are sneaking into your products. These chemicals also vary from product to product, making it even more complex. That’s why companies like ours are beginning to emerge, to offer all natural alternatives to store bought beauty products, so you can pamper yourself without having to worry about the health risks.
