What You Put on Your Skin Goes in Your Body: Make the Switch to Organic Makeup in 2018

What you put on your skin goes in your body. Although skin is an amazingly efficient barrier protecting your internal organs, it is not perfect. After all, skin evolved to block out dirt, bacteria, and other particles found out “in the wild.” Human skin did not have to confront the tiny, insidious industrial chemicals found in many cosmetic formulations – like parabens and formaldehyde – until recently. So when you put these toxic chemicals on your skin, they slip right through your pores and into your body. This is something that cosmetic companies – which base their products on synthetic chemicals, instead of nourishing organic ingredients – don't want you to know. But it’s true all the same, and the result is a disastrous effect on the health of women around the world. For example, many of the toxic chemicals in cosmetics cause menopause to occur at an earlier age in women. This isn’t something you’ll hear about in the slick advertisements of big-brand cosmetics. You won’t read about this risk on any product labels. But the risk is there nonetheless, harming women whose lives are seemingly less important than corporate profits. Women who use phthalate-containing cosmetics experience hot flashes at an earlier age than average – followed shortly by the onset of menopause. This is according to scientific research; but spin doctors doing the bidding of major cosmetic companies deftly ignore this. That same piece of research has demonstrated that paraben-laden beauty products result in an earlier age of onset for infertility. But you wouldn’t discover that by reading a faceless “Corporate Responsibility” web page plastered online by cosmetic companies who use such toxic chemicals in their products. What you put on your skin goes in your body. It makes common, as well as scientific, sense. But the “mainstream” cosmetics industry willfully ignores this truth – choosing, instead, to dump hazardous chemicals into your supply of beauty products. Siloxanes. Diethanolamine. Parabens and phthalates. Formaldehyde and mercury and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. The non-organic beauty industry knows exactly what it’s putting in your makeup. But, through clever branding, marketing sleight-of-hand, and political lobbying, it has managed to convince millions that it’s quite alright to spritz and spread these chemicals all over your skin – for decades on end. So, our bit of advice: Make 2018 the year you say “Oh hell no” to such toxic makeup. Make this the year you make the switch to organic beauty products. Because what you put on your skin goes in your body.
