Do you have any idea how many chemicals are going into your body?

13 May

On May 6th, the president’s cancer panel released a 200+ page report about risky chemicals in our environment.  Out of the 80,000 chemicals or so that are currently being sold in the U.S. market, only a few hundred have been proved safe.  From BPA in plastic to BHA in food  to the many cancer causing chemicals in cosmetics (Oxybenzone, Parabens, Formaldehyde), it is important that Americans start paying attention.  Consumers need to become more aware of what they are buying and manufactures need to be responsible and ensure they are offering  safe products to the market place.

For a more in depth article regarding this report please click here.

The cosmetics industry was a main concern in the report.  It is estimated that a woman may host over 515 synthetic chemicals daily as a result of her beauty routine.  See the image below from dailymail.co.uk which summarizes these findings.

Research by Bionsen, a natural deodorant company, found that the average woman's daily grooming and make-up routine means she 'hosts' a staggering 515 different synthetic chemicals on her body every single day.
