We are bombarded by lots of toxins in our world today, so we need to lessen the load on our bodies as much as possible in order to be healthy and well. One of the things we can look at is what we put on our skin, as we ID-100115084absorb everything that we put on our skin. A study done by the National Center for Biotechnology Information demonstrated that moisturizers containing certain toxic chemicals can significantly increase the risk of developing skin cancer. Some of the offending products were:

  • Eucerin
  • Dermabase
  • Vanicream
  • Dermovan

I’ve had some clients who aren’t on any hormones go through my saliva testing and come out with very high hormones like estrogen & progesterone from using moisturizers or creams like Eucerin! Alarming!

Here are some of the usual ingredients to avoid:

  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is one of the worst
  • Parabens
  • Isopropyl palmitate
  • Propylene Glycol
  • BHT… & more!

Simple ways to protect yourself are to stay away from products with long lists of ingredients and use plant-based products. My moisturizer of choice is Coconut Oil. It works great and there are no chemicals.

Stay informed to protect your health!
