According to the University of California Berkeley , who had a research funded by The California Breast Cancer Research Program: using natural skincare products for only 3 days decreases already body toxic chemicals provoking hormone disrupting issues .
The research team provided a group of 100 of young women with personal care products labeled free of chemicals: phtalates, parabens, triclosan, oxybenzone…
These chemicals are widely used in personal care products such as soaps, sunscreens, hair products, make up and fragrances found in perfumes and/or in all of the products above.
These chemicals have been shown in animal studies to interfere with the body’s endocrine system.
Analysis of urine before and after a 3 day trial in which the participants used lower chemical products found significant drops in levels of the chemicals in the body:
♦Metabolites diethyl phtalate (found in fragrances) decreased 27%
♦Methyl and propyl parabens (preservatives) dropped 44 and 45% respectively
♦Triclosan (antibacterial in soaps and in toothpaste) and benzophenone or oxybenzone (found in sunscreens) fell 36%.
No need now to explain more why we should use natural cosmetic.
Furthermore, it is fun and easy to use natural ingredients and to DIY our own skincare products.
