Did you know that your skin is your largest organ? Well it is…. and anything you put on it should contain only the best and safest ingredients from nature. So before slathering lotion or body wash on your skin, take a look at this infographic on toxic chemicals found in health and personal care products. Discover these common yet deadly chemicals and how they can potentially sabotage your health and well-being.
Health and Personal Care Products
Are you scared yet? Believe it or not many of the health and personal care products that you use probably include these toxic chemicals and many more. This is mainly because the cosmetics industry is widely unregulated. Giving companies the opportunity to mislead consumers with false advertising.
Due to lack of accountability, the cosmetics industry has an “innocent until proven guilty” approach when it comes to using ingredients. Unless someone demonstrates with a preponderance of evidence that a chemical used in a product is causing health issues, the product is classified as “GRAS” or “generally recognized as safe.” Believe it or not, this classification is upheld by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
Just as you check the labels of the food products you eat, I suggest you check labels of the cosmetics and body care products you use on your body as well. Or as a better alternative you can start using our health and personal care products.
Merkaela’s botanical products are made using toxic-free, nutrient-rich essential oils, butters, natural herbs and other ingredients meant to nourish the body and mind. In addition to using the finest and most beneficial ingredients to help nurture and heal the body and mind, we help balance the body by providing you with set of products that help to stimulate a desired response.
