7 Harmful Chemicals in Organic Products
To ensure you get the most out of your day spa experience and keep your skin safe from harm, here are seven potentially harmful chemicals often found in organic products!
Often used as preservatives, parabens can penetrate the skin and act like estrogen, disrupting hormones and potentially leading to breast cancer.
These synthetic fragrances may be labeled as “fragrance” on product labels, but they can be absorbed into the body and have been linked to reproductive issues.
• Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES)
These chemicals are commonly found in shampoos, soaps, and facial cleansers. They easily penetrate the skin, damage the protective layer of oil on our skin, and cause irritation.
• Formaldehyde-Releasing Preservatives
These release small amounts of formaldehyde into a product over time, which can irritate eyes, nose, and throat; cause lung irritation; alter DNA; lead to asthma; and has even been linked to cancer.
• Synthetic colors
Artificial coloring agents like coal tar dyes and FD&C colors are often found in makeup, nail products, and hair dyes. They can cause allergic reactions, headaches, and even cancer.
This antibacterial agent is found in some toothpaste, deodorants, and other personal care products and has been linked to hormone disruption and skin irritation.
These silicone-based compounds soften, smoothen, moisturize, and lubricate makeup products. Still, they have been linked to endocrine disruption and organ system toxicity.
Although there are many benefits to using organic spa products, it’s essential to be aware of the potentially harmful chemicals that may be present in them.
If you’re planning on using organic spa treatments, check the labels for these seven chemicals and avoid them if they are present. Doing so can help ensure that your day spa experience is healthy.
