One would be surprised but there are a lot of carcinogenic compounds that are found just in our beauty and skin care products that we use a day to day basis. In fact, research proves that there are 12 major toxic and carcinogenic compounds that are found in beauty and skin care products. From Benzoyl peroxide found in acne products, to chemicals in sunscreen, parabens and metals in deodorants, lead in our lipsticks and preservatives in medications. The best course of action for combating the effects of these products is by having the education and knowledge of what these chemicals are and how best we can avoid them.
When our human bodies are exposed to these chemicals, we don’t see their adverse effects until later in our lives. It may take years for any effects of these chemicals to show in our bodies and unless we are weary and aware of what we should be avoiding, we could be putting ourselves in a position that could harm our bodies detrimentally in the near future. Beauty doesn’t have to be deadly!
