Hidden Chemical Dangers
Why Should We Be Concerned?
Many of us are learning about the toxins that are all around us, hidden in the products we use every single day. The toxins are collecting in our bodies, causing BODY BURDEN. We need to be paying attention to what we put ON our bodies just as much as what we put IN them!
Fact: 26 seconds is all it takes from the time something touches our skin, until traces of it can be found in every organ of our body. EVERY ORGAN OF OUR BODY. Every organ of our children's bodies.
This is important. This is very important.
This is why we care. about the level of toxins in our daily care products. This is one of the huge reasons we started searching to find alternatives to our store bought goods.
The Toxic Substance Control Act of 1976 grandfathered in an estimated 65,000–100,000 chemicals currently on the market today. They have had no testing to determine if they're safe.
What does that mean to you?
Simply put: These chemicals have not had any safety testing and we know very little information about their effects. Of the chemicals tested, toxic labeling is required only if 50% or more of the animals tested with a chemical die. Under the TSCA, manufacturers are protected by trade secret laws that allow them to keep their ingredient lists a secret.
