Natural Doesn’t Always Mean Good

Are you what you eat?

The old adage “you are what you eat” isn’t always true. And these day’s it’s good to remember if you can’t eat it you probably shouldn’t be putting it on your body either.  May people believe they are getting products that are good for them and their families when they go shopping. Did you know that there is no requirements behind using the words healthy. Sad but true, companies can label their products however they want. When it comes to this type of hype, and many consumers are none the wiser, whether it be food or products. With a little research it’s easy to learn how to differentiate what you’re buying for your family.  Here are few tips.

Chemicals, Chemicals & More Chemicals

Did you know that less than 10% of the 100,000 chemicals being used in the body and skin care industry today have been tested for safety? The FDA does not require pre-market testing or health studies before products are sold. While the European Union has banned over 1500 cosmetic ingredients, the US has banned 11; That’s right, just 11! AND we haven’t passed any new regulatory laws on cosmetic ingredients since 1938! Unbelievable isn’t it!

Babies in the bath

The average woman uses over 500 chemicals during their everyday beauty rituals. Toxic chemicals are known to create health issues including Skin Allergies, Reproductive Problems, Infertility, Birth Defects, Learning Disabilities and even Cancer! The skin is the largest organ in the body and absorbs from 60-80% of what we put on it. The percentage increases in children by 40-50% which puts them at a much higher risk for disease when exposed to these toxins. These toxins are lurking in our homes, kitchens, and our bathrooms.
