Good Morning Lovelies!!!
Well this week it is finally done! All the photos are uploaded all the information supplied. And boy am I tired LOL
So now I’m going to tell you a little something about what is called the “Dirty Dozen”. These are synthetic ingredients that are put in our cosmetics, skincare, and hair products. Now I don’t want to completely scary you but it is something that you should know about. The products we use daily have small amounts of the ingredients that you are going to see below but over time it can cause body burden (a build up of chemical toxins in our tissue) Don’t run for the bubble yet cause there is a way that you can help yourself and that of course evaluate what you are putting in and on your temple 🙂 See nothing to be scared of!
Now is time for the Dirty Dozen
1. BHA and BHT
These are used as preservatives and are said to disrupt our endocrine system.
2. Coal Tar Dyes (listed as CI followed by a five digit number)
These have the potential to cause cancer and and can contaminate the brain with
heavy metal toxins.
3. DEA-related Ingredients
These are used in moisturizers and shampoos and may have a chemical reaction
that forms nitrosamines which are harmful to wildlife.
4. Dibutyl phthalate
These are used in some nail care products and disrupt the endocrine system and
toxic to our reproductive system.
5. Formaldehyde-releasing Preservatives
These are DMDM hydantion, diazolidinyl urea, imidazolidinyl urea, methenamine
and quarternium-15. The slowly release formaldehyde into our systems.
Used as preservatives they also disrupt our endocrine system and may interfere
with male reproductive functions.
This is fragrance that may trigger allergies and asthma.
8. PEG Compounds
These are used in cosmetic cream bases and may cause cancer.
These are used in items that give us a shine, hair and lips. These could contain
polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons which may cause cancer.
These are used to soften, smooth and moisten and disrupt the endocrine
system and are reproductive toxic.
11. Sodium Laureth Sulfate
These are found in foaming cosmetics and can be contaminated with
1,4-dioxane which may cause cancer.
These are used in antibacterial cosmetics that may disrupt the endocrine system
and contribute to our antibiotic resistance.
Now with all that scariness out of the way it is time to read labels and know what you are putting on your face. Don’t be scared or overwhelmed just take it one day at a time and even baby steps will create health and well-being.
And truth be told there is no better time then “Spring Cleaning” time to go through those make-up drawers (I know that I am not the only one that has make-up ALL over the place LOL)
