Are your skincare products safe?

There are countless examples of environmental toxin exposures that it is best to avoid. One that many people overlook is the issue of contaminants in personal care products, such as soap, deodorant, sunscreen, and cosmetics. According to the Food & Drug Administration, since cosmetics aren’t considered food or pharmaceuticals, the FDA doesn’t have the responsibility to approve new ingredients or issue safety recalls. There is little or no oversight. It’s simply up to the manufacturer to decide whether a personal care product is safe.

These toxins can accumulate in your body, leading to chronic disease over time, as well as a host of symptoms such as headaches, memory loss, and reproductive problems.
