Chemicals Commonly Found in Beauty Products that Disrupt our Hormones
If you have been following me for a while you may already know I am extremely passionate about Holistic Health and so, it was only a matter of time before I wrote a blog addressing the impact toxic chemicals in our beauty and skin care products have on our health. Like most people, you have probably heard the term “clean beauty,” you may also feel slightly confused, "What does clean beauty actually mean?"
Answer: This term should be used to classify non-toxic beauty products. It helps us as consumers classify cosmetics, hair and skincare products that are free from harmful chemicals. This includes ingredients you have probably already heard of like: petroleum, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and synthetic fragrances. PEOPLE, we need to become more aware of the dangers of using these ingredients. Some of the current health challenges toxic ingredients have been linked to include: Digestive disorders (leaky gut), Skin conditions (acne, eczema, psoriasis), cancer and endocrine disruption (The current STAT on Unexplained infertility is currently sitting at 1 in 4 couples and PCOS, PMS, PMDD, Fibroids, Endometriosis and other disorders of the female reproductive system are rising every single day).
