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.
