Plant extracts and herbs have been used by many cultures as cosmetics and perfumes since ancient times. Recent clinical and laboratory studies have identified activities in many natural ingredients that have many beneficial activities for the skin. Skin is your body’s largest organ and your protective barrier and therefore it is extremely important to be aware of what you are exposing it to.
“The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t need to approve what ingredients are added to personal care products. Unfortunately, many of the “safe” ingredients in traditional skin care products are endocrine-disrupting phthalates or parabens. Endocrine-disrupting chemicals can cause reproductive issues and they’re linked to increased cancer risk. The more you’re exposed to them, the more they concentrate in your body. Using natural and organic products and periodic body cleansing are a strong fundamental foundation to keep you safe and healthy.”
