Nourishing Nature: Beauty Recipes from the Garden
How many skin care products do you use in an average day?
According to a study by Skin Deep a branch of the Environmental Working Group, consumers apply more than a dozen products a day. In the U.S. personal care products are manufactured with more than 10,000 unique chemical ingredients. And no safety testing is required for chemicals that go into personal care products. Sadly, many of which contain known carcinogens such as lead acetate, coal tar, and formaldehyde in addition to endocrine and reproductive system disruptors. Furthermore, when it comes to cosmetic ingredients they do not simply lay on top of our skin. They are designed to penetrate the skin and which they do.
It’s time we start thinking about what we put on our skin as much as we think about the foods we eat. You see, choosing great beauty products and ingredients is just as important as choosing healthy, safe foods. Just like many packaged foods have unnecessary additives, so is the same for skin care products.
