Simply stated "toxins in, toxins out", espoused in the Story of Cosmetics video, illustrates basic common sense. Whatever toxins go into making a product are going to come out. And it shows up in your body in various degrees and types such as lead, mercury, petrochemicals. Naturally, these toxins can have an impact on the body systems in different formats. It is supremely important to consider daily care routine as a part of staying well and your general wholeness.
The good news is abstaining from chemically-laden products can reduce the amount of exposure in as little as three days.
"Researchers gave 100 Latina teenagers various personal care products that were labeled to be free of common chemicals including phthalates, parabens, triclosan, and oxybenzone. These chemicals are used regularly in almost all conventional personal care products such as cosmetics, soap, sunscreen, shampoo, conditioner, and other hair products, and animal studies have shown that they directly interfere with the body’s endocrine system."
"After just a three-day trial with the girls using only the lower-chemical products, urine samples showed a significant drop in the level of chemicals in the body. Methyl and propyl parabens, commonly used as preservatives in cosmetics, dropped 44 and 45 percent, metabolites of diethyl phthalate, used often in perfumes, dropped by 27 percent, and both triclosan and benzophenone-3 fell 36 percent." - Collective Evolution
