Did you know? .....that up to 60% of what you put on your skin is absorbed into your body?

For some time we have known that the skin is not a waterproof barrier but a permeable organ absorbing thousands of substances a year directly into the bloodstream. Many people are unaware of the synthetic chemicals and harmful ingredients that they put on to their skin every day of their lives.

If this concerns us at all, we have to learn to read the ingredients listed on the label if we want natural and pure products without the potential to harm us. We list below some of the harmful ingredients that are often added to cosmetics today. There are many others to look out for but these are probably 10 of the worst!
