Shampoos claim shiny, frizz-free hair; toothpaste promises pearly whites... but how? Unfortunately, the answer is harmful ingredients. If you check the label on many common products you will probably find a list of unpronounceable, untested synthetic chemicals. While it can be hard to detect, your skin actually absorbs over 60% of what you put on your body. The FDA has not approved the majority of the 80,000 ingredients used in these products, making it impossible to know their impact on our bodies and the environment! That means that all the ingredients listed on the back of your sunscreen tube are actually going straight into your body. Are there obscure and hard to pronounce words on your ingredient lists? If there are, opt out! Good news is, there are plenty of awesome, easy to find (Whole Foods, Target, Bed Bath, CVS, green grocers and tons of websites) eco options without toxic ingredients.
