Infographic from Earth Mama Angel Baby Organics
What if you knew the shampoo, body wash, moisturizer and countless other hair, skin and beauty products that you and your family use every day were poisonous? Would you continue to use them? Would you use them on your baby or allow any of your children and loved ones to do so?
Many of us are unaware that the majority of the commercial personal care products we use on a daily basis contain a cocktail of toxic chemicals, many of which have not been properly studied for adverse effects on humans.
Although cosmetic companies and many regulators maintain these chemicals are safe in small doses, no one really knows the compounded effects of long-term use. Additionally, a number of the relatively few studies conducted so far indicate links to possible organ system toxicity, endocrine disruption, allergies, irritation of the skin, eyes and lungs and other harmful effects.
This infographic describes eight toxins commonly found in many commercial shampoos and body washes:
PEG-80 Sorbitan Laurate
Many holistic health and wellness practitioners recommended avoiding personal care and cosmetic products that contain these and certain other toxic chemicals and ingredients. They advise making our own or opting for natural, organic versions. One such good choice is Earth Mama Angel Baby Organics, the source of this infographic. For more information, visit their site.
