Take a second to imagine your daily grooming habits and your skin.

To start the day, you may jump in the shower and lather yourself with shampoo, conditioner, shaving cream, and body scrub. After the washing, lotions and creams are soon to follow.

Now imagine lathering yourself in antifreeze, garage floor cleaners, followed by drinking fluoride, and rubbing on chemicals that completely throw your hormones and your health completely out of whack.

In our world today, the typical American uses over 515 toxic chemicals every single day!

Toxic Chemicals that are illegal to put in food are the main ingredients in almost all mainstream personal care products. The truth is, it is more dangerous to put these ingredients on your skin than it is to physically eat the chemicals.

Anything you put on your skin is directly absorbed into your bloodstream in 26 seconds. It does not go through your liver or kidneys to filter the toxins like food does. Your body has no defense.

Toxic Ingredients Destroying Your Health

Certain ingredients can alter hormonal chemistry in a couple of ways. They can increase circulation of certain hormones by mimicking their activity in the body, or they can reduce the level of sex hormones in the body or block their activity. This can impact fertility, lead to early menopause and influence things like mood, length and severity of the menstrual cycle in women.

Common ingredients such as sodium lauryl sulfate and parabens are known Endocrine Disruptors, which means they are substances that alter your natural hormones.

Some ingredients in body care products may cause estrogen dominance in the body. They do this by mimicking your natural hormones. Endocrine disruptors cause hormonal imbalance. Many fertility problems in women are linked to an overabundance of estrogen in the body, including endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, PCOS, breast cancer, and irregular menstrual cycles.

Here is a list of the top 6 common toxic soap ingredients to look for today.

As with food, the fewer ingredients in your personal care products the better. Simply switching to natural body care products could dramatically reduce the toxic burden on your body and save your health.
