Chemicals in Toiletries

January 12, 2007 at 11:33 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Would you want to use anti-freeze or brake fluid as your make-up, deoderant, after shave?

Yuck, right!

Well, that is just what we are doing when we use many of the products available to us on the market today. The analogy I used above is true. It is the chemical called propylene glycol and you’ll be surpirsed to see how many products have it in there.

This website from the UK was extremely helpful and informative to me in regard to this issue. It has a helpful list of ingredients to watch out for and some of the dangers associated with them.

Now, you may be wondering…well, how good are the natural alternatives? Aren’t they more expensive? Is it really that important?

Well, I personally have switched most of our toiletry items to natural and I have been quite pleased with their results. I will post more about those in the future. As for their price, I have found that there is not much difference (unless of course you are currently using the generic version of shampoo that costs $2.00). And whether or not it is important, that is for you to decide.

My question to you is…if there is an alternative that is all-natural and safe and not that expensive, why would you still use products that have chemicals?
