Organic Skin Care:
I n our modern world, our skin is attacked every day from the inside and outside by toxic pollutants. Industrial chemicals are known to be absorbed or inhaled into the body and can mimick your body’s own hormones, sending the wrong messages to your cells and organs. When your body is over-exposed to synthetic chemicals, your immune system may go into “red alert.” Too frequently, skin problems can result from imbalances inside the body. Skin also can have an immediate reaction to synthetic surfactants/detergents and chemical preservatives, fragrances, thickeners, sunscreens or the other industrial chemicals commonly found in topically applied skin care products. Many people are surprised to learn that facial skin problems and even rashes on other parts of the body can be caused by your shampoo, hair conditioner, and styling products, not just skin care, perfumes or moisturizers.
