Safe Products Lead to Healthier Life

Most people worry about pollutants from air, water, pesticides, etc.  Research is showing our bodies are also being injured by ingredients used daily through our personal care and cosmetic products.   This is serious and can potentially lead to chronic disease.

Toxins entering through the skin can affect our body through the immune system, respiration, nervous system, hormones, musculoskeletal system and the brain.  Children can be at an even higher risk due to their sensitive bodies.

According to the Center for Disease Control (C.D.C.) there are over 130 million people suffering with chronic illness.  Symptoms can begin with hypersensitivity to variety of products.  Studies report from

15% - 44% of the U.S. population report chemical hypersensitivity. 

According to independent studies by the non-profit consumer organization Environmental Working Group (EWG), we absorb over 123 ingredients daily through our skin via personal care and cosmetics.  What's shocking is that the Food & Drug Administration (F.D.A.) has not tested over 90% of these for safety.  In fact, personal care and cosmetic products are not monitored for safety by the F.D.A. and companies are left to police themselves.  

A myth believed by most consumers is that natural ingredients in products are healthy and good for you.  The truth is that most natural ingredients have side effects and contain harsh preservatives to prevent mold, or are sprayed with herbicides.   It's important that you learn what you can do to live a safer today and a healthier tomorrow.
