Clean & Clear Is Toxic
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 use Clean & Clear all the time.
After digging into their ingredient lists, almost all of their products have such harmful ingredients that you all should be aware of!
Here are just a few of Clean & Clear’s toxic ingredients:
❌ DMDH Hydantion: considered a Group 1 Carcinogenic. Preservatives, it triggers eczema, and causes allergy! Voted allergen of the year by The Dermatologist Journal in 2015
❌ 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.
❌ PolyEthylene: this ingredient is non- biodegradable, a possible carcinogenic, allergy causer. MOST concerning: The little things hat you feel exfoliating on your face is actually PLASTIC microbeads that are cancerous and a cause of major concerns and serious global issue for pollution in the marine environment.
Please stop using these product if you are, and check out my blog post here for what to use instead
DIY face exfoliating scrub: Sugar is a natural source of glycolic acid. Glycolic acid boosts new cell production and breaks down the protein that keeps the dead cells hanging onto your skin
Pure cane sugar crystals work best. Mix the sugar crystals with your favorite massage oil but you can also use olive, jojoba, grapeseed or almond oil , etc. in order to make a paste. Scrub on your face in a circular motion, rinse, wash as usual.
