Just What Are Those Nasty Chemicals, Anyway?
Here’s the truth about what’s in most popular body care products—even the ones that call themselves “natural” and “pure.”
First are the chemical foaming agents called surfactants, known as SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) and SLES (sodium lauryl ether sulfate). These are commonly added to soaps, shampoos, detergents and toothpaste to make them lather and give the appearance of a “deeper clean.” Even though they’re found in many “natural” products, they are known skin irritants and worse.
A report conducted at the Journal of the American College of Toxicology found that “carcinogenic nitrates can form in the manufacturing of sodium lauryl sulfate” and that SLS “enters and maintains residual levels in the heart, the liver, the lungs and the brain from skin contact.”1 Researchers concluded that “this poses question of it being a serious potential health threat to its use in shampoos, cleansers, and toothpastes.”1
SLES is not much better because it is typically contaminated with dioxane, which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classifies as a “probable human carcinogen.”2
Our new Shampoo, Conditioner, and Body Wash only use natural plant-based ingredients to create cleansing effects that will leave your hair and skin smelling delicious and feeling fresh. No carcinogens here!
Beauty by Anti-freeze
The next big one, propylene glycol, is a chemical solvent commonly found in antifreeze – as well as hair care products, soap, makeup, deodorant and much more. While propylene glycol is considered generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, its Material Safety Data Sheet warns when it is absorbed through the skin, it may “cause systemic effects similar to those of ingestion” which include effects on the “behavior/central nervous system…cardiovascular system (hypotension, bradycardia, arrhythmias, cardiac arrest), endocrine system (hypoglycemia), urinary system (kidneys), and liver.3
Secret Synthetic Scents
And let us not forget synthetic fragrances which are petroleum-based and often include chemicals which are cited on the EPA’s hazardous waste list.4 Take benzene, for example. This petrochemical solvent is cited by the EPA as a “known human carcinogen for all routes of exposure.”5 What’s worse, we don’t even know what these mystery chemicals really are, because manufacturers can legally refrain from disclosing them, protecting them as “trade secrets.”
