When you’re out shopping… don’t fall for the highly scented, bright colored, cute packaged gift sets.
Why give a gift full of harsh chemicals?
Have yourself a HEALTHY Holiday!
Give gifts that are good for your loved ones!
⚠️Please understand that chemicals found in conventional beauty products disrupt your endocrine system.⚠️
😐These gift sets are sold in all the stores. Targeting women and now young girls. From lotions, bath bombs, makeup and perfumes.Our skin is our largest organ. The ingredients get absorbed into our bloodstream within 26 seconds 👎🏼 Toxic exposures will put a child at higher risk for disease(s) later in life.
☝🏻So many ingredients to avoid…
🚫Phthalate/DHEP: According to the Mayo Clinic, these chemicals are Human endocrine hormone disruptors, can damage the liver, kidneys, lungs, and reproductive system.
🚫Butylene Glycol: found in anti-freeze & brake & hydraulic fluid. It can cause an increased skin reaction in people with sensitive skin. It can also be called Propylene Glycol.
🚫Isopropyl Alchohol: may cause premature aging of skin. Also found in anti-freeze. It strips skin of natural acid mantle, promoting growth of bacteria. It can cause headaches, flushed skin, dizziness, nausea & vomiting, & mental depression according to A Consumer’s Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients.
🚫Tetrasodium EDTA: contains formaldehyde & a known skin & lung irritant
🚫BHT: this fragrance has been linked to organ system toxicity and a known skin, eye, and lung irritant
🚫Disodium EDTA: neurotoxin linked to brain damage and liver changes in animals
🚫Diazolidinyl Urea: this chemical releases formaldehyde into your body. Mayo Clinic says formaldehyde can irritate the respiratory system, cause skin reactions, trigger heart palpations, immune system toxicity, and cancer in humans. Exposure may cause joint pain, depression, headaches, dizziness, loss of sleep, chronic fatigue, ear infections, allergies, & chest pains. It can also trigger asthma & aggravate colds. Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen found in Johnson and Johnson baby care products, skincare, antiperspirants, and hair dyes.
🚫Methylparaben & Propylparaben: directly linked to breast cancer. In mice it had weak estrogenic effects which caused damage to the sperm formation in the testes. It may contribute to sterility in males, hormone imbalances in females, and cause early puberty. A relative of methylparaben, sodium methylparaben has been banned in the E.U. Some other common names for paraben’s are ethyl-, butyl-, & isobutyl- all ending with paraben. These do not have to be labeled, so sometimes companies will not list within ingredients panel.
🚫Ceterareth-20: ENHANCES the absorption of ALL above chemicals
Never mind all of the dyes…a product may be called “Berry” but there are no essential oils or fruit extracts in the product at all? They are all chemically produced. 😞
🤓I know you think these kinds of things smell good, but they really are so bad for you. Once you stop using them and your body begins detoxing from the daily toxins, I promise you won’t miss them because they really won’t smell good anymore (they become smell overwhelming).
It’s up to us to make better choices. 💪🏼
