We spend a lot of time worry about what we put IN our bodies, but when is the last time you stopped to really consider what you put ON your body?
Our skin is our largest organ & yet, we rarely stop to think about the things we put on our skin on a daily basis. Before we get into why it’s such a problem, stop and think about it for a minute.
How many personal care products do you use on a daily basis? We’re talking soap, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, foundation, mascara, lipstick, toothpaste, deodorant. Really stop and think about it. Is it eight? Ten? Twelve?
The average person uses about 8-12 products.
Here’s the problem.
We have not passed a major federal law governing this industry since 1938. (That’s almost 100 years ago! Think of all of the things that have happened in the world since 1938.)
For one, we have introduced over 80,000 chemicals into the market – many of which have absolutely no safety data.
What’s worse is dangerous ingredients such as lead, formaldehyde, and phthalates are allowed in these products that we put on our bodies and on our kids every single day, day after day.
And, even if we were to find an issue with this, the FDA is not allowed to do anything about it.
There are no standards that dictate terms like organic or natural – which means if you are using products with these claims, they mean nothing.

It’s time for a change – don’t you think?
