10 Ingredients You Should Avoid in Your Personal Care Products

Hi Friend!

So I’m not sure if you’re aware of the fact that in the United States personal care products are not really all that regulated. In fact only 31 ingredients have been deemed harmful and banned from our products. However, there are so many more ingredients out there that are actually also known to be harmful and should not be in our personal car products.

These harmful ingredients include:

  1. Frangrance/parfum: Fragrance can cause skin and respiratory irritation, allergies, migraines, may be carcinogen, neurotoxicity, endocrine disruptor, and may lead to birth defects

  2. Parebens (methyparaben, proplypareben, ethylpareben, butylpareben): Parebens are linked with endocrine disruptors, potential carcinogens, developmental toxicity, reproductive toxicity immune toxicity.

  3. Phenoxyethanol: this ingredient may cause neurotoxins, skin irritation, possible contamination with carcinogenic 1.4 dioxane

  4. PEG (PEG-7, PEG-20, PEG-8, PEG-9): Possible contamination with 1.4 dioxane and ethylene oxide - both known carcinogens

  5. Polysorbates (polysorbate-20, polysorbate-40, polysorbate-60): possible contamination with 1.4 dioxane and ethylene oxide, which are both known carcinogens

  6. Phthalates (DBP, DEHP, DEP, DMP): endocrine disruption, may cause birth defects

  7. Active Aluminum Zirconium Tetrachlorohydrex Gly (Aluminum Compounds): Neurotoxicity, potential carcinogen, endocrine disruptor, organ bioaccumulation, skin irritation, found in antiperspirants
