Toxin Free Home: Moisturizers

Video 3 in our “Toxin Free Home” Series talks about moisturizers and sunscreen.  We smear these products onto our largest organ, aka our skin.  And what goes on our skin goes into our bodies. 

 

Unfortunately, some of the main ingredients in both moisturizers and sunscreens are known carcinogens, endocrine disruptors (2), and allergens, as well as toxic to our reproductive systems.  Eek!

The cosmetic industry is highly unregulated, if you’re wondering how it’s legal that all of these things are in our personal care products.

Thankfully, there are some great, natural options out there. 

Products Used: 

Now Organic Jojoba Oil

Acure Organic Argan Oil (pricier, but worth buying once for the awesome jar it comes in.  Makes a great travel bottle.)
