danger in the unseen

Protecting your body from harmful toxins is vital, because your skin acts like a giant sponge, absorbing 60% to 90% of everything that it comes in contact with. You’ve heard the saying “You are what you eat.” Well, you’re also what you absorb.

What’s disturbing about this fact is that over 95% of cosmetic products sold today, including those labeled organic and natural, contain one or more absorbable toxic ingredients. Having individual organic skin care ingredients is very different from having a 100% organic or 100% natural product.

Unless all the ingredients are listed or available to you, there may be harmful and toxic chemical adulterating the organic and natural ingredients. Pay close attention to the ingredients listed, and keep in mind that most companies highlight the ingredients they want you to see and omit all the questionable ones.It’s always good to ask for a complete ingredients list, because knowing what you put on your skin can be a determining factor in your health and well-being.
