Top Toxic Ingredients To Beware In Skin Care

It’s a shame so many people take care of their skin by lathering it with toxins. Conventional face washes, moisturizers and skin care products tend to come pre-loaded with potentially toxic chemicals, including phthalates, triclosan and synthetic colors from coal tar.

Not only have these ingredients been linked to serious health problems, they can also make your skin look dull, irritated and older! You’d be better off putting nothing on your skin at all then using beauty products high in these toxic ingredients.

    My kids look at me funny when I put coconut oil in my hair and on my face, but this is why. I buy all natural soaps from a place I love on etsy, and I’m super super picky when it comes to sunscreen. The chemicals in many of these “good for you” products are so dangerous. I even mix my own tooth powder because the stuff in toothpaste weirds me out too.

      The fluoride in toothpaste calcifies your pineal gland and through examples of the gulag where prisoners were given fluoride in their water made them more complacent and easy to deal with.
