Your Skin is Eating Chemicals and You Don’t Know It

Your Skin is Eating Chemicals and You Don’t Know It

Sep 30th 2014

Heads Up! We’re Back In Stock!

Our new personal care products were such a hit, they flew off the shelves overnight! We’ve been busy getting these amazing bath products back in stock for you, but get them while you can – we’re likely to sell out fast!


Have you heard?

Sunfood Body Care ProductsOur new vegan, gluten-free, and Non-GMO Shampoo, Conditioner, and Body Wash are all made of a unique blend of 100% plant-based ingredients and essential botanicals. Naturally cleansing and nourishing, they will make your hair and skin feel rejuvenated and smell fresh!


Here’s the best part… they’re 100% free of chemicals. No toxins, synthetic fragrances, parabens, petroleum, preservatives, propylene glycol, SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) or SLES (sodium lauryl ether sulfate).



Can You Handle The Truth?

Take a peek at what your favorite body care products are made from —even the ones that call themselves “natural” and “pure.”


Freaky Foam

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 [the] 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 systemcardiovascular 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.


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.”



So What Makes Ours Different From The Rest?

We disclose all ingredients, and they are all truly natural! Beyond being 100% plant-based and free of toxic chemicals, our new Shampoo, Conditioner, and Body Wash are supercharged with powerful fruit enzymes and positive microorganisms to achieve gentle, effective cleansing, as well as to preserve the body’s natural oils and stimulate circulation. Plus they’re sustainably sourced and pH balanced to work harmoniously with your body and the Earth. 


The result? Lustrous, buoyant hair, and fresh, rejuvenated skin that feels and smells amazing.

Ditch the chemicals and treat your hair and skin to natural, plant-based cleansing with our brand new Natural Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Wash!
