DID YOU KNOW THAT 60% OF WHAT YOU PUT ON YOUR SKIN GETS ABSORBED INTO YOUR BLOOD STREAM? SOMETHING YOU MAY BE SURPRISED BY IS HOW HARSH THE CHEMICALS IN YOUR PERFUMES ARE AND THE NEGATIVE EFFECTS THEY CAN HAVE ON YOUR BODY. YES GIRL, I KNOW YOU JUST GLANCED AT THE PERFUMES YOU HAVE. IF YOUR PERFUMES ARE NOT MADE OF NATURAL INGREDIENTS, IT’S TIME TO TOSS THOSE BABIES OUT!
A STUDY REPORTED THAT COMMON FRAGRANCES HAVE OVER 24 CHEMICALS THAT ARE KNOWN TO CAUSE ALLERGY TRIGGERS SUCH AS HEADACHES, DIZZINESS, RASHES, HYPERPIGMENTATION, COUGHING, VOMITING OR SKIN IRRITATION. IT’S SURPRISING THAT FRAGRANCES ARE ALLOWED TO USE INGREDIENTS LIKE THIS BUT WHAT IS EVEN MORE SURPRISING IS THAT THERE’S ABOUT 14 OTHER INGREDIENTS THAT THE AVERAGE FRAGRANCE LABEL DOESN’T MENTION (BTW THIS IS PERMITTED BY THE FDA). THE ONLY LIMITATION FRAGRANCE COMPANIES HAVE IS THAT THEY CANNOT USE BANNED SUBSTANCES WHEN IT COMES TO THEIR INGREDIENTS.
ONE OF THE FEW DISTURBING INGREDIENTS IN COMMON FRAGRANCES IS PHTHALATES. THIS INGREDIENT IS ALSO USED IN SHOWER CURTAINS AND VINYL. THIS SAME INGREDIENT IS BANNED FROM BEING USED IN CHILDREN'S TOYS.
JUST LET THAT SINK IN...
AND FORGET A COLORED FRAGRANCE. OCTINOXATE IS THE CHEMICAL USED TO ARTIFICIALLY DYE PERFUMES BUT IT IS MORE POPULARLY KNOWN TO BE A HORMONE DISRUPTOR. YES, A HORMONE DIS-RUPTOR... AND ABOUT 75% OF COMMON FRAGRANCES CONTAIN HORMONE DISRUPTORS.
THE CURRENT LAW DOES NOT REQUIRE COSMETIC PRODUCTS TO BE FREE OF HARMFUL INGREDIENTS BUT LUCKILY THERE ARE COMPANIES THAT CARE AND VOLUNTARILY USE ALL NATURAL AND ORGANIC INGREDIENTS.
