08.16.09 Choose Safer Body Care Products
Diaper creams, sunscreens, moisturizers, soaps… everything we slather onto our bodies gets absorbed into our bodies and can have a big impact on our health and the health of our little ones. Do some experimenting with new skincare products the next time you run out of your favorite lotion. There are so many products available that provide safer alternatives for skin care. You just might find something you can’t live without!
Industrial chemicals are the foundation of the personal care industry: one out of every 8 chemicals registered for use in personal care products (in the U.S.) are hazardous, according to the independent scientists at the Environmental Working Group. They include carcinogens, pesticides, toxins, endocrine disruptors, and more. While a single exposure to a product is unlikely to cause harm, daily exposure over years may add up to spell trouble. To make it easier to find healthy alternatives, MightyNest has pulled together a few of our favorite products that are safe and every bit as effective as what you’re using now. Still skittish about dumping that product you’ve been using since middle school? Check out the reviews to see what others have to say before jumping in.
