It seems that the toxic ingredients in skin care are really at the forefront of people’s minds again. I keep coming across articles and about this issue and one of the great resources I found is the infographic below from a blog page called EcoMom. I think they have done a great job at encapsulating the issues that we face every time we pick up a new cosmetic product.
Unlike the toxins we ingest in food or drink which the liver has the opportunity to filter and excrete before it is stored, the toxins in cosmetics are absorbed directly into the blood stream and are therefore much more likely to be stored in our cells where they can wreak havoc. There are so many toxic assaults our body in this day and age, from the xenobiotics found in carpet and plastics, to toxins in our cleaning products, food and the environment. However, there is a lot we can do to minimise the toxic load we face every day. Changing to non-toxic skin care that is natural and/or organic is a big step in the right direction.
