5 reasons to change your bath and body products

Posted by

Cancer causing chemicals in today's bath and body products is the number 1 reason that people are switching to handcrafted soaps and body products. 

1.  Anti-bacterial ingredients - Triclosan and triclocarban are 2 of the main ingredients in anti-bacterial products, they are are supposed to "protect you from colds and flus", yet those are caused by viruses and anti-bacterial products do not kill viruses.  When triclosan mixes with water it can create chloroform, which causes cancer and can affect your nervous system.  Sunlight and heat can also change triclosan to dioxins, which are also cancer-causing.  Anti-bacterial soaps are also drying and can irritate skin.

2.  Parabens - 99% of breast cancer tissues tested contained parabens.  Parabens are added as preservatives in cosmetics and body products, but these chemicals mimic estrogen and are found commonly in:

Deodorants and antiperspirants Shampoos and conditioners Shaving gel Toothpaste
Lotions and sunscreens Make-up / cosmetics Pharmaceutical drugs Food additives

3.  Sulfates - Sodium Laurel/Laureth Sulfate or Ammonium Laureth Sulfate are the main ingredients in shampoo, these harsh detergents are added to strip everything, including all natural oils, and be a sudsing agent, it is also irritating to skin and is often contaminated with other chemicals that are known to cause cancer and disrupt hormones.

4.  chemical sunscreens - top 3 are benzophenones, such as oxybenzone, and cinnamates, such as octinoxate, which can disrupt hormones and allow sun exposed skin to be sensitized, retinyl palmitate can even promote skin cancer.

5.  fragrances - Chemically derived scents in products are often asthma triggers and can even disrupt natural hormones.
