We are bombarded with chemicals daily by our personal care products and cleaning products. These chemicals can affect your hormones, thyroid and memory; contribute to cancer, skin problems, headaches and more. Start eliminating the chemicals that go into or onto your body and start to live a “cleaner” life.
It can be overwhelming to change everything to “clean” products all at once. Start with the most important and tackle it little by little. Use the list below as many brands claim to be “green” but still contain harmful ingredients.
Step 1: Start with hand/body soap, toothpaste and deodorant
Check your ingredients and eliminate products with the following ingredients:
- FD&C Blue 1 and FD&C Green
- Propylene Gycol (PEG, isopropyl alcohol)
- Sodium Lauryl
I like these Young Living products because they are plant based and do not contain any of the ingredients listed. They also work well! Check back for Part 2!
