- Fragrances (perfumes)
Many fragrances are made up of chemicals and alcohols which in many cases irritate asthma, allergies and bring on migraine headaches. Natural scents derived from flowers and plants may not be enough for those with sensitive skin. For children your best bet is fragrance free.
Are used to prevent the growth of microbes in cosmetic products and can be absorbed through the skin, blood and digestive system. They have been found in biopsies from breast tumors.
Found in over 90% of personal care products. They break down your skins moisture barrier, leading to dry skin.
Formaldehyde is a toxic preservative and not something you want in your skin care nor do you want your products releasing this dangerous compound into your skin. Check your labels, whether natural or not.
Read your labels!! Protect your children from these harmful ingredients!!
I wish you and your families a very Happy and Healthy Holiday. Will be talking to you again in 2015.
