Cosmetic Chemicals: Is Your Beauty Bag Leaving You Unbalanced?

It is shocking how much harm cosmetic chemicals can cause, not only to our hair and skin, but to our entire bodies. From the shampoo we use to the foundation that we wear on our skin, it is so important to choose products that are as pure as possible.

A recent study at the University of California, Berkley showed that people who took just a 3-day break from using products containing cosmetic chemicals, proven to have a negative effect on the endocrine system, showed a huge 45 percent drop in the levels of dangerous chemicals within their bodies.

This included:

  • A decrease of 27 percent of Diethyl Phthlate (commonly found in synthetic fragrances)

  • A drop of 44 and 45 percent in Methyl & Propyl Parabens

  • 36 percent less Triclosan (aka Benzophenone or Oxybenzone)

This demonstrates that even if you have been using poisonous products your whole life, it’s never too late to make a difference!

Teenage girls are at particularly high risk of damage from these toxins, due to the rapid development of their reproductive system, yet this is the group who use more chemical cosmetics per day than any other group. If you have teenage girls in your life, maybe the next time you want to treat them, think about some of our wonderful, organic products to really make a difference.

It is sadly true that not all toxins can be avoided in life. Our homes are full of plastics, electronics and products that are constantly emitting fumes and even the very air we breathe has been tested to show 100% of samples contained at least one pesticide and various other chemicals. However, one area of our lives that we can control our chemical absorption is our beauty routine.

Our organic hair products are 100% natural, so using these instead of toxic alternatives will decrease the cosmetic chemicals within your body, whilst leaving you beautiful, healthy locks too! But it doesn’t stop there.

Switching your makeup bag to organic products is also a great change to make, as with high-street brands most women are applying an average of 168 chemicals to their faces every day! Opting for natural makeup, as opposed to those containing vast numbers of cosmetic chemicals will result in a healthier body and healthier skin too.

We love RMS beauty, here at Tabitha James Kraan Organics, due to their use of wonderfully pure ingredients without compromising on results.
