Did you know? The average teenage girl uses 17 personal care products per day? The average adult woman uses 12 personal care products per day? The average adult male uses 7 personal care products per day? WE ABSORB UP TO 5 POUNDS OF CHEMICAL TOXINS INTO OUR BODIES PER YEAR!
The chemicals in my products are minimal and only applied to my skin…its not like I am eating them! According to Dr. Mercola: What you put on your skin can be more dangerous than what you eat because there are not stomach enzymes breaking them down, rather they enter the bloodstream direct.
Our skin is the largest transport system to our organs 30% of what is supposed to exit our body is supposed to exit through our skin 30% of what enters our body comes from through our skin We absorb up to 60% of what we put on our skin
What about the FDA? The cosmetics and personal care products (PCPs) industry is a 35 billion dollar industry; so powerful it has managed to be unregulated for decades. There are: 10,500 chemicals in our PCPs only 11% have been tested for safety. There are over 200 ingredients in the PCPs in the U.S. that have been proven to be hazardous to health and are banned in the EU. Not one single product or ingredient has to be approved by the FDA before it is released into the market.
Babies are being born pre-polluted More thank 70% of PCPs in the U.S. contain Phthalates that link directly to birth defects and infertility.
Did you ever wonder why our toddler girls are developing breasts? Or why more male babies are being born with descended testicles? Or why more and more kids are suffering from ADHD, Autism and Allergies?
97% of Americans tested by the US Centers for Disease Control have Diethyl Phthalate (DEP) in their blood streams.

Green Washing Pink Washing Green Washing is when companies use words like natural, organic, ecofriendly, and hypoallergenic to depict a greener product.
