Natural and Organic Cosmetics are a Healthier Alternative

The cream that you used this morning to wash your face, the hairspray you used and the brightly colored nail polish you are wearing may be more harmful than you think. In 2002 a study concluded that many common cosmetics contain a chemical called phthalates. These were found in everything from scented lotion, shampoo, perfume, aftershave, nail polish and hair spray. These chemicals are not chemically bound to the products so they can leak out over time.

Phthalates are hormone-disrupting chemicals that threaten reproductive health, especially in males. A study in 2004 found that baby boys whose mother was exposed to high levels of phthalates during pregnancy were more likely to have genital abnormalities. Scientists believe that phthalates reduce levels of testosterone hormone resulting in these abnormalities. Phthalates can also reduce female fertility and premature breast development in young girls, lead to liver and kidney damage and asthma.

Using natural, organic and phthalate free cosmetics can reduce your families exposure to this harmful chemical. Natural simply means that the ingredients used have not been altered or changed from its original state and nothing else has been added. Just because a product may say it is natural it might not be as natural as you think.
