Today many consumer products including food, clothing and beauty products are transitioning to the use of natural and organic ingredients. Additionally many of today’s companies are realizing the importance of adopting health and environmentally-conscious business practices. Research has shown that many cosmetics and skincare products may contain harmful chemicals such as synthetics, phthalates, parabens, triclosan, oxybenzone and others. The toxic ingredients found in many everyday beauty and personal-care products can potentially lead to hormone imbalances, neuro-behavioral problems, obesity, diabetes, cancer and more.Think twice when choosing beauty and skincare products and be sure to read product ingredients before you purchase. Try looking for certified organic beauty products or try reducing the amount of makeup you use to reduce the amount of chemicals in your daily life.
