Dangerous Beauty, Toxic personal care and make up
This presentation will change the way you look at cosmetics and personal care products for the better. Based on 10 years of research and over 500 scientific references it puts the truth about cosmetics and personal care products at your fingertips.
The large array of chemicals and fillers found in these products, come at a great cost, in an industry that allows these high selling commodities to remain largely unregulated and unmonitored when it comes to you the consumer.
Science has shown a clear link between the toxic chemicals hidden in cosmetics and personal care products and chronic illness, including breast cancer. While there may be only small amounts of these chemicals added to these products we now know they are applied many times each day and directly to our skin.
Other chronic health conditions linked with these products include skin conditions, asthma and allergies, weight gain, diabetes and metabolic syndrome and other cancers such as skin and prostate cancers.
Many of the toxic chemicals added to these products are quickly and efficiently absorbed through the skin and into the blood and can play havoc with your hormones acting as endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDC’s) leading to an increase in hormone related cancers, thyroid dysfunction and reproductive difficulties in both males and females at all ages.
Some of these EDC’s include parabens, phthalates, triclosan, petroleum products, even heavy metals. Applied by both men and women, children and adolescents multiple times a day in various product formulations, this presentation will open your eyes to a new way of looking at products as well as showing you how certain ingredients can play havoc with hormones, biochemistry and obesity, impacting on your family’s health and wellbeing .
With thousands of studies now published on these chemicals and products it is time we took action instead of waiting around for the governments to protect us. We can no longer ignore the products we apply most intimately to skin.
Watching this presentation will open your eyes to a new way of looking after your health.
