GO THROUGH YOUR PRODUCTS AND THROW AWAY PRODUCTS WITH THESE INGREDIENTS. Please, make a note to avoid in future products or contact me for an easy to carry card.
YOUR SKIN IS SYSTEMIC, meaning that you and your loved ones will absorb about 60-80% of what you put on it. The following ingredients are known carcinogens, linked to cancer, harmful to your health & the environment.
- Diethanolamine (DEA)
- Phenylenediamine (PPD)
- Sodium Laurly/Laureth Sulfate (SSL, SLES)
- Formaldehyde (Urea)
- Polyehtylene Glycol (PEG)
- Propylene (PPG) & Butylene Glycol
I am glad that ForeverGreen’s products DO NOT contain any of these ingredients.
NEW INFO I ADDED ON JANUARY 9TH 2013.
According to info from the David Suzuki Foundation website, “Some of the ingredients in beauty products aren’t that pretty. U.S. researchers report that one in eight of the 82,000 ingredients used in personal care products are industrial chemicals, including carcinogens, pesticides, reproductive toxins, and hormone disruptors.”
The ingredients on this card and this website are slightly different but contain way more info than my simple list and if you click the links to check them out, it would be easier than if I were to copy and paste all the info that there is.
Another awesome resource that I highly recommend, is EWG Skin Deep Database, where you can look up individual ingredients or products by name to see how they rank on a scale of 0-10.
Wishing you all Health, Happiness, & many Blessings.
