It’s not enough to just clean your body. I want you to have a Whole Body Experience when you take a shower, wash your hair, or even just your hands. I want you to pause and allow the Passive diffusion of the soap to hit your Senses, ignite your brain receptors and alter your atmosphere.
Everything should be intentional. Even the simple soap bar we put on our body.
There are many myths on how personal care products effect and penetrate into our skin. A quick search on the matter will leave you confused and unsure of whos giving you the facts. Unfortunately, there aren’t many regulations in the beauty industry at all, especially around marketing language, so brands can kind of say whatever they want. So how can we be sure are products are safe?
Dr Chan Yung, a dermatologist at Apex Dermatology Institute in Tsim Sha Tsui, States:
” Since some chemicals can enter your bloodstream through topical application, its best to avoid products that contain harmful ingredients such as parabens, SLS, a preservative called methylisothiazolinone, and heavy metals, My advice is to read the label when buying your skin care products – even organic or ‘chemical-free’ ones. Such descriptions may sound appealing, but some of these products may contain harmful preservatives.”
Common Toxins Found in your everyday Soap Bars Are
Sodium Laureth Sulfate-carcinogenic nitrosamine – SLS is linked to skin irritations and allergic reactions, like eczematous dermatitis, leaving sensitive skin damaged and irritated
Triclosan -in low doses, can impact thyroid hormone concentrations, disrupting the endocrine system. It is also classified as a skin, eye, and lung irritant.
1,4 Dioxane– known eye and respiratory tract irritant that readily penetrates the skin.
Parabens – mimic hormones, which disrupt the function of hormones naturally found in your body.
Ureas- releases formaldehyde – which is a known human carcinogen, human respiratory toxicant, skin irritant and an environmental toxin.
With chemicals as toxic as these, I’d look twice at that soap label next time.
