Hi all, the bringer of good news is back. Today we’ll be digging into the world of the global cosmetics industry. Looking good and smelling good is all part of modern life, but are cosmetics toxic?
I remember in the 80s when I was about 17, I got some some dry skin on my leg. So off I go to the Doctors, I asked him what was it caused by, he said probably your shower gel. So he gave me some cream, steroid cream. When I got home I looked at the cream and realized it was the same make as the shower gel!
Cause and effect? Kerching!
Girls if you want to carry on putting on make-up maybe you shouldn’t read any further. Men if you are going to spray gallons of Lynx deodorant under your pits maybe you should know what the ingredients are. You might also be using lovely soft talc on a baby before you put on a nappy.
But would you use talc if you knew it contained dangerous amounts of ASBESTOS, that has been linked to cancer?
The ingredients used in cosmetic products can also cause skin irritations and can mimic the hormone estrogen which is causing endocrine disruptions in men and women. Some cosmetic ingredients are also human carcinogens and cause birth defects. So what should we be looking out for?
We will list some of the toxic chemicals in cosmetics, along with symptoms and health concerns. Health Bunker will also use research and studies that show how harmful ingredients like ‘Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)’ also known as ‘Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES)’ really are.
We will show what the industry is worth and dissect some of the popular brands we use every day. Chemicals that come from the petroleum industry, and global industrial chemicalcompanies.
I suppose the question is; Are cosmetics really toxic?
