We live in a toxic world.
Our food, air and water carry chemicals which were unknown to nature, let alone our body, one hundred years ago. While our detoxification system is equipped to excrete toxins via urine, faeces, breath and sweat, it would be better if we didn't intentionally add to the toxic load our system needs to process.
One of the sources of these ‘intentional’ toxins is our daily cosmetics. And one of the key offenders here are fragrances. Did you know that many globally popular scents have hidden chemicals, which are not listed in the ingredients?
While it may be these undisclosed ingredients which make these scents so alluring, the American Environmental Working Group found that some of these hidden chemicals have troubling hazardous properties or a propensity to accumulate in human tissue.
These harmful chemicals include among other diethyl phthalate and musk ketone, a synthetic fragrance ingredient that concentrates in human fat tissue and breast milk.
That, my dears, is not a rosy idea. Learn more about chemicals in fragrances here:
