There are so many chemicals in fragrances, body and cleaning products when used year after year can have a huge impact on our skin, lungs, detox pathways and contributing to hormone disruption.
Those chemicals include parabens, phthalates, synthetic colours, formaldehyde, fragrances, and propylene glycol to help them look and smell nice, in addition to preserving their shelf life.
The good news is that there are many inexpensive, safe, natural, pleasant and effective alternatives to store bought chemical body care and cleaning products. Many of these alternatives may already be in your kitchen cabinets!
Harmful sprays could be replaced with simple microfibre cloths and water. Natural cleaning products can be created from pure essential oils.
Alternatively, there are numerous eco-friendly cleaning products that are naturally-derived, safe, nontoxic, and biodegradable ingredients that don't negatively impact the environment or your family’s health.
The average woman uses about 12 beauty products, and within many of them lurk thousands of toxic chemicals. Makeup, shampoo, skin moisturises, nail polish, and other personal care products contain chemical ingredients that you really could do without.
It’s no surprise that the organic skin care beauty market has exploded. We are spoilt for choice with natural beauty products free from harsh chemicals.
Might be time to do an inventory of the toxic cleaning and body products in your home. Try swapping one product at a time for a more natural option. It really is that simple!....and your body and home will love you for it!
