Your skin is your body's largest organ. Every single pore on your body is like a thirsty little mouth, drinking up and absorbing in whatever you give it. It may surprise you that the average adult uses 9 personal care/cosmetic products daily and is exposed to well over 168 chemicals each day.
Did you know?
What's most troubling is that due to loopholes in federal law, companies can put virtually any ingredient into personal care products and the government does not require pre-market safety tests for any of them.
The end result of all this - is the importance of understanding that just because you can purchase a skin care product does NOT mean it is safe or even that it has been properly tested.
