How your body becomes overloaded with toxic pollutants
The moment you shower and start WASHING your body with shower gel and shampoo (sodium lauryl sulfate, cocoamide DEA, parabens) your body begins to absorb a toxic soup of nasty chemicals.
After showering you apply deodorant (DMDM Hydantoin, imidazolidinyl urea, limonene), make-up, eyeshadow (propylene glycol, bronopol, formaldehyde), mascara (nano particles) and perfume (isopropyl alcohol, phthalates and fragrance)...
Read the label on any toiletry or cosmetic product – as well as household cleaning products, air fresheners and scented candles – and you’re more than likely to come across the word ‘fragrance’ or 'perfume / parfum'.
Sounds pretty innocuous doesn’t it?
But, according to the Journal Of The American College Of Toxicology, this could be any one or any combination of more than 3,000 different synthetic chemical ingredients.
And because manufacturers are allowed to guard their special blend of fragrance as a trade secret, none of these 3,000+ chemicals EVER get listed on the label.
But don’t for one minute think that it ends there.
Many toiletries and cosmetics labels use flowery language designed to make you think that they are completely safe.
More than this, they’ll even try to brainwash you that they’re doing you good… even making you healthier!
They’ll use words like ‘natural’, ‘organic’, ‘gentle’, ‘revitalising’….
They’ll tell you that the product is hypo-allergenic, that it will nourish your skin and keep it healthy…
