Harmful Chemicals in Skin/Hair/Nail Products

Updated: May 13, 2022

Unfortunately, harmful chemicals are very effectively absorbed by our skin. These chemicals enter multiple tissues within our body and cause illnesses. I made this easy-to-use chart for my clients. On the left column, you find the harmful chemicals, in the row with an X, the products that contain them.

These ingredients may cause:

Aluminum Salts: Alzheimer's Disease, Autism, Breast Cancer

Formaldehyde: Cancer

Fragrances: Hormone Disrupters, Allergens

Hydroquinone: Cancer cell growth

Oxybenzone: Interfere with the Body Endocrine System

Parabens(methyl and propyl): as a preservative in cosmetics, Breast Cancer by mimicking estrogen

Phthalates: interfere with the Body's Endocrine System

Triclosan: Cancer cell growth, Endocrine Disruption,

Endocrine disruptors interfere with the production of testosterone in males, which results in a higher concentration of estrogen and a lower concentration of testosterone in their bodies. Man develops low sperm counts, and women breast cancer. (Human health and Toxicology)

I say no to these chemicals/poisonous products; instead, I choose natural organic ones.

I Believe in:

Organic, Natural, Biodynamic®, Sustainable, and Cruelty-Free
