6 Shocking Truths About Chemicals in Beauty Products That Will Keep You Up at Night

 

 Pretend for a moment you’re back 50 years ago, in 1964. Magazines and commercials are filled with glamorous ads of beautiful women, independent and confident, enjoying the finer luxuries of life.

“To keep a slender figure no one can deny…Reach for a Lucky instead of a sweet”
“You’ve come a long way baby”

Now, flash forward to today. Magazines and commercials are filled with glamorous ads of beautiful women, independent and confident, enjoying the finer luxuries of life.

“Easy Breezy Beautiful CoverGirl” 
“Maybe she’s born with it. Maybe it’s Maybelline.”

Do these stories sound similar? The desirable woman disguise once used to sell cigarettes is now featured in every cosmetic ad. The same lies that were sold in the tobacco industry back then are now being sold by the corporate giants of the beauty industry. 

This comparison goes even further. Smoking kills, on average, 1,200 Americans. Every day. Smoking causes cancer of the mouth, esophagus, larynx, lung, stomach, kidney, bladder, and pancreas. New reports have emerged of cancers and other toxic effects to the immune system after years of beauty products being laced with chemicals, heavy metals, and other hazardous ingredients.

Choosing a Safe Product

In 1976, scientists applied topical Omega 3’s to the skin of test group, and those who received the oil on their skin actually overcame internal deficiencies of Omega 3’s! Proof that you can take in nutrients via your skin to actually improve your health.

Knowing the effects that topical beauty products can cause internally, why would you apply anything to your skin that you wouldn’t eat? This is a good rule of thumb to use when choosing a beauty product.

Opt for products made completely by plant oils and essential oils from flowers, barks, and spices. These have been tried and tested for thousands of years across many cultures.

Next time you’re searching for a beauty product, ask yourself what you would rather put on your skin Organic Coconut Oil Cream, or some 1,4-dioxane mixed with Yellow #5?
