Switching out your toxic cosmetics is one of the most important things you can do for your health. Whatever you apply to your skin is directly absorbed into your bloodstream, and it doesn’t have the liver to filter out the toxins. Consider the fact that you apply makeup everyday – now imagine the toxic buildup in your system
Common ingredients found in majority of cosmetics can cause cancer, hormonal issues, infertility, respiratory issues, allergies and a whole host of other issues. Applying these products daily for years and years will almost certainly lead to one of these health issues.
