Hidden Dangers in Personal Care Products

Posted on 03 July 2017
If you've been following my healthy journey I have been using Natural Products for the past 7 years. Why? Because when I was researching how to cure my Crohn's Disease I came across some pretty scary information about what toxic chemicals I had been using without realizing the damage it was doing to my health.

Did you know that our skin is our largest organ? And whatever we put onto our skin gets absorbed into our bloodstream and affects our health? When I first learned this it was mind blowing! It made complete sense, but it was something I had never even bothered thinking about before. I used to choose my personal care products based on the pretty packaging, the fancy marketing of what the products 'said it could do for me' or their 'nice' smell. Oh how far I've come!.....

What I've learned now is that all of the personal care products I was using was contributing to my illness and I needed to STOP using them ASAP! Have you ever looked at the ingredients list of your personal care products and wondered what all of those BIG words were and what they actually mean? These synthetic ingredients in most brands of personal care products contain chemicals which are skin irritants, endocrine disrupters and are carcinogenic – all of which can be doing your HEALTH and SKIN a lot of harm. What does endocrine disrupters mean? It means chemicals that may interfere with the body's endocrine system and produce adverse developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune effects! What the? I know! What does carcinogenic mean? It means having the potential to cause cancer! ......WOW!

So, what did I do? I threw away all of my toxic personal care products in the bin and was on the hunt for safer alternatives. The amount of money I spent on the products didn't even compare to the damage it was doing to my health so I said Good bye and cleared them out of my bathroom. Boy, did it feel good to know I took a step in the right direction.

It took me a while to find products which were safe, that I was happy with and which weren't going to break the bank. Over the years I have tried A LOT of different Natural product brands and I have FINALLY found a Company that I can buy ALL of my personal care products with AND my Natural Househould cleaning which makes life A LOT more easier, safer and Healthier for me, my body and my family.
