DID YOU KNOW?
75,000 chemicals are licensed for use in the U.S.
Everyone in the U.S. permanently carries more than 300 chemical pollutants, pesticides and toxic metals in their organs and tissues: 300 synthetic chemicals acquired from foods, drugs and personal care products - the combined effect of these chemicals is entirely unknown.
On average, a person uses 10 body products every morning: shampoo, soap, toothpaste, moisturizers, deodorant, perfume, cleanser, lotion, conditioner, hair gel or spray etc. On average, every morning before leaving for work, a person applies and uses 250-300 chemicals. This does not take into account chemicals that are ingested.
The FDA does NOT regulate the cosmetic industry. The FDA granted self-regulation to the Cosmetics, Toiletries and Fragrance Association (CTFA) in 1938. Other than certain color additives and a handful of prohibited ingredients, manufacturers of body products may use whatever chemicals they want. No safety tests must be run, and if they are, each manufacturer keeps the results secret.
The National Institute of Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHEA) has identified 884 toxic or potentially cancer causing ingredients found in commonly used personal care products.
In this section you will find a guide to some of the most common toxins found in foods and products for the body and the home.
