Have you ever stopped to consider what you’re putting on your skin? Or on your children’s skin? Or what you’re gifting to your loved ones? 60 – 80% of the ingredients in skincare products are absorbed into your blood through your skin. Children’s bodies absorb 40-50% more than adults! Now is the time to stop & think about it. Would you be surprised to learn that some well-known brands of skin care are highly toxic?
99% of the 15,000+ skin care and cosmetic products on the market have never been evaluated for safety by the FDA (US Food & Drug Administration), CIR (Cosmetic Ingredient Review) or any other publicly accountable institution.
74% of all personal care products on the market according to chemical industry databases contain:
Carcinogens (cancer causing chemicals),
Teratogens (causing birth defects),
Reproductive toxins (male & female infertility),
Developmental toxins (hazardous to unborn children)
Skin/sense organ toxicants (causing skin disease and rashes)
Allergenic toxicants (causing allergies)
Mutagens (causing cells to mutate)
57% of all skin care products contain “penetration enhancer” chemicals like Propylene Glycol and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate that drive down deep through five layers of skin and enter your bloodstream.
The Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database provides you with easy-to-navigate safety ratings for a wide range of products and ingredients on the market. I challenge you to look up your current skin & body care brands to see how safe (or toxic!) they are. Pangea’s products are nontoxic and always beneficial, never artificial. http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/
