Transitioning to non-toxic skincare products is the next step in reducing exposure to harmful toxins this year. You’ve probably heard a lot about toxins found in food whether they be from chemical pesticides or food-like products. But did you also know that toxins can also be found in your skincare and femcare products, as well as your cosmetics? Let’s take a look at why non-toxic skincare is a must this year.
Why Using Non-Toxic Skin Care Matters
Our skin is our largest organ. Your skin plays a key role in your well-being because it serves as a protective barrier, helps to maintain stable body temperature, and allows us the sense of touch. Your skin also acts as a passageway straight into your bloodstream, so what we put on our skin can be absorbed by our bodies and enter our blood. Our skin can absorb up to 60% of what we slather onto it and the sensitive areas around our faces and armpits can absorb two to six times as much as other areas of the body.
Knowing that our bodies absorb the skincare and personal care products we use, it’s important to always take a look at the ingredients inside. Common ingredients found in conventional soaps, lotions, and makeup increases your chemical exposure and has negative effects on your hormone health.
