Top 4 Personal Care Ingredients to Avoid!
Christa Orecchio stops by the studio to discuss the top 4 personal care ingredients to avoid. The skin is our largest absorptive organ and anything put on our skin only takes 26 seconds to reach our blood stream. The average woman puts over 500 chemicals on her body before she leaves the house.
The New York Times wrote an article attributing parabens, found is many personal care products, to the reason girls are going through puberty at such a young age. It is also linked to breast cancer. DEA is another toxic ingredient, which can be found in detergents and cleaning agents. Sodium lauryl sulfate is found in products that foam such as shampoos and has been known to break down the tissues of the body and could even speed up aging. The fourth ingredient is propylene glycol, which is found in makeup, but is also found in antifreeze. The best advice is, if you wouldn’t eat it, don’t put it on your body. If you cant pronounce the ingredients, chances are they are toxic.
Christa shares some healthy alternatives such as grapefruit seed extract, which is an anti-fungal. Getting chlorine free paper products is important. Coconut oil can be used as a lotion or a hair mask. Toothpaste should be fluoride free. Apple cider vinegar can be used as a facial cleanser.
