Why you should care with what you are placing on your body & skin?

What’s in your conventional beauty products?

Did you know the average women apply more than 500 chemicals to her body every day during her beauty routine?

Daily millions of women slap on conventional body lotions, moisturizers, lipsticks, makeup, mascara without a second thought about what they are putting on their skin or what these products are made from.

Why you should be concerned?

There are so many negative effects from using conventional beauty products. Chemicals such as parabens ( a synthetic preservative in everything from toothpaste to shampoo) and phthalates (a class of chemicals that are found in many “fragranced beauty products such as lotions, moisturizers, makeup, perfumes, and deodorants) are classified as xenoestrogens.

Xenoestrogens mimic our natural estrogens creating hormone chaos by increasing the total amount of estrogen, resulting in a condition called estrogen dominance. Estrogen dominance has been implicated in many conditions including breast and prostate, obesity, infertility, endometriosis, uterin fibroids, early onset puberty and PMS.

Are you alarmed yet?

Protect yourself and start reading labels and stay informed. Start paying attention to the toxins that your body religiously absorbs.
