Did you know that your skin is your largest organ? This large organ not only protects us, but is one of the ways we absorb and eliminate toxins. Applying toxic chemicals to our skin can result in an increased risk for cancer, allergies, and hormonal imbalance; therefore its important to support our skin rather than damage it.
The Environmental Working Group is a great resource to check the safety of products you use in your home. Cosmetics, cleaning supplies, skin care, sunscreen, oral care, and many more products we use daily can contain ingredients that may be harmful for our health. Check the safety by searching the Environmental Working Group database. A low score 0-2 is best, 3-6 is ok, and 7-10 means we should stay away from that product. By clicking on the product you can also see how it can impact your health and why it received its rating.
