Up to 60% of anything you put on your skin is directly absorbed into the bloodstream. In addition research states that the average woman may apply up to 515 chemicals in her daily make-up and grooming routine. It would be mindful if the average woman reads the back of a cosmetic product as well. If it were a packaged food or drink, would she not looks for MSG or high fructose corn syrup? Most likely, yes. There is a great potential that items of the average woman’s cosmetic routine may contain chemicals, additives, and other toxins. These potentials toxins can not only be harmful for one, but also for the environment in the form of PPCPs – which are pharmaceuticals and personal care products as pollutants.
Parabens are used in many make-up accessories which may be carcinogenic. Being used as a preservative to make-up, it may very well be an estrogen-imitating endocrine disruptor, which leads to Cancer. These disruptors have been found in breast cancer tissue. Phalates is another possible toxin, found in nail polishes and fragrances, have been found to have effects on the reproductive systems of lab animals. Of course, Phalates are absorbed by the human body.
