Chemicals found in regular shampoo
The average home today contains 62 toxic chemicals - more than a chemistry lab at the turn of the century. We put many of these products in our hair, on our face and skin, which is our largest organ. Is it any wonder the incidences of allergies and diseases such as cancer are skyrocketing?
Less than 2% of synthetic chemicals have been tested for toxicity, mutagenic, carcinogenic, or birth defects. Do we really know what the long term outcome of having all these chemicals in our household and toiletry bag is going to be?
HERE’S JUST SOME OF THE CHEMICALS FOUND IN REGULAR SHAMPOOS/CLEANSERS:
+ Sodium Laurel Sulfate Used to degrease car engines Carcinogen, toxin, genetic mutagen
+ Propylene Glycol Main ingredient in anti-freeze Throat irritation, kidney problems, necrosis (cell death). If swallowed, can serious health problems, including death.
+ Parabens, a common ingredient in many beauty products that can mimic the hormone oestrogen, which is known to play a role in the development of breast cancers.
The US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) report into chemicals used in personal care products stated:
“Continual introduction of these benzoates (parabens) into sewage treatment systems and directly to recreational waters from the skin leads to the question of risk to aquatic organisms.”
Scientists in Europe have found other endocrine-disrupting body care chemicals in the bodies of fish that humans are eating, and in human breast milk.
