Can you pronounce the ingredients in your hair care products?

Are you interested in understanding more about what you put on your skin and body? We have better choices available now that are safe and sustainable.

Has a product ever made your skin burn, itch, or tingle? Like the food we eat, some say if you can’t pronounce it – don’t eat it!

Our skin is important to take care of from head to toe unfortunately, many of the products in the market that take care of skin and our bodies, are free to use toxic substances to preserve and give them longer shelf life.

Cosmetics are designed to be absorbed by the skin (i.e., wrinkle creams and anti-perspirant) and their ingredients also penetrate the body and join the bloodstream, where they may cause unknown internal harm. This in combination with the daily use of at least several such products amounts to exceptional exposure.

Personal care products also get into the environment, particularly water supplies. Whether rinsed off in the sink, washed down the drain of your shower, or thrown out, the countless chemicals in cosmetics infiltrate the water supply. As water treatment plants are unequipped to remove them, over 100 chemicals from personal care products can be detected at low concentrations in our drinking water.
