The skin is the body’s largest organ, what we rub on our skin, what we absorb from our environment and the chemicals we breathe all ends up in our bodies. Our bodies are amazing things and we have the ability to detoxify ourselves, but with more and more chemicals being developed over the last 50 years (over 80,000 have been registered) we are being bombarded with too much. I believe that is why we have a rise in Cancer, Autism, Asthma, Alzheimer and so much more. If we can minimize our exposure and be wary of what we use I believe we’ll be better for it and so will future generations.
A lot of what we place on our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream, so paying attention to what we use is key.
