Did you know that 80% of the ingredients in our products (makeup, skincare, etc.) are absorbed into our bodies and then into our bloodstreams?

Therefore, those ingredients should not be toxic, because when they are, they will hurt your reproductive system, and disrupt so much more!

Before switching my products to be all non-toxic, I used to be loyal to a brand you may be familiar with; Aveeno.

Truth is: after digging into their ingredient lists, almost all of their products have such harmful ingredients that you all should be aware of! Their marketing claims to be doctor approved, hypoallergenic, but this does not mean healthy!

For example, I will share just three of the horrific toxins in Aveeno’s products that I found once I scanned them into my Think Dirty app:

1. Fragrance : did you know that about 3000 fragrance ingredients is added to most of the personal care products? Fragrance is known to be a hormone disruptor and causes allergy and it is actually not required by law for companies to disclose the specific ingredients used to produce these fragrances.

2. Butyl Paraben : preservatives that is toxic to reproduction , is a hormone disruptor , and carcinogenic!

3. Ethyl paraben – A chemical used to preserve the product formula as well as a fragrance ingredient. It creates immunotoxicity and is an endocrine disruptor, not to mention causes allergy!

So… What to replace with you ask? check out my blog post here for all my non-toxic, natural skincare product favorites
