Personal Care Products - What to Avoid

As originally featured on www.healthybabynetwork.com

Personal care products are part of our daily self-care routines and we commonly use them without hesitation. But what if you knew that those same products might actually be putting you and your family at risk? These formulations are used directly on our skin and in turn their ingredients can be easily absorbed into our bodies where they come into direct contact with sensitive tissues and organs. Granted when you look at a single application, the amounts of toxins in shampoo, conditioner and body wash are fairly negligible. But we usually use many different products and are exposed to a variety of other environmental toxins in our air, water, food and other sources every day. Day after day, year after year our toxin load adds up!
