The Eco-Chic Boutique Coming Soon! Has Launched! As of Sept. 1st, 2010! Yippee!!
Why Use All Natural Products? A Quick Did You Know?..
Did you know..?
That the vast majority of us bathe with harmful chemicals?!
Chemicals like SLS Sodium Lauryl Sulfate which was actually created as a solvent and skin irritant?! It is used commercially in almost every single shampoo, soap etc..on the shelves today! even “gentle” baby wash! It’s residue, when washed down the drains, cause all sorts of issues for wildlife and gets into the ground & water supply! – Just take a moment and look at the ingredients of all of the “health” and beauty products you have in your house right now… I’ll bet that most if not all contain SLS..Not Good…
A Few Reasons…
Natural Products Does A Body & The Environment Good!
> However, the use of sodium lauryl sulfate has been a subject of lot of controversy. It has arguably been called one of the most dangerous ingredients in products today.
>One thing about sodium lauryl sulfate that had a lot of animal rights activists protesting is its use in clinical testing.
>The chemical is employed as a primary skin irritant in trial tests on animal or human subjects. Usually after sodium lauryl sulfate is applied to the skin, a rash is likely to develop.
>The product itself, usually intended to heal skin irritation, is then tested for effectiveness.
>Besides subjecting human and animal test subjects to different degrees of discomfort, critics claim that sodium lauryl sulfate is retained in the long run in organ tissues like the heart, liver, and brain.
>In lab animals, testing has been blamed for causing mutagenic effects.
>If they remain in the eyes for too long, they may also lead to the development of cataracts.
>Because sodium lauryl sulfate is corrosive by nature, it can dry out skin by stripping the protective lipids from the surface of the skin, weakening the body’s natural moisture regulation mechanisms.
>If it eats away at the follicle, hair loss may also be induced.
>In extreme cases, sodium lauryl sulfate is argued to be carcinogenic, though not by itself.
>When exposed to other nitrogen-bearing ingredients of a skin product though, the oxidation reaction that results may form nitrosomines, which are carcinogenic nitrates. Opponents of this argument claim that the percentage of sodium lauryl sulfate in such products is usually not enough to cause cancer in human beings. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), and the National Toxicology Program (NTP) are all research-based organizations that have rated sodium lauryl sulfate as non-carcinogenic.
So why would you bathe in chemicals like that? Chemicals that could even lead to Cancer?!
Probably because, that is what is readily available and cheap and you didn’t know any better..
Well let me just say, just like the Earth, there is only one you. You should take care of the only you that you’ve got.
You deserve to be healthy & clean now you don’t have to choose one or the other *SMILE* Forutnately, other people discovered these potential dangers and developed SLS – FREE products. *Round of Applause For Them* *Yeah!!!* and Thank You!!!
