Females Who Wear Makeup Absorb a whopping 5lb (Pounds) of Toxic Chemicals EVERY Year

The average woman puts 515 synthetic chemicals on her skin every day. 60% of what we put onto our skin is absorbed into our bodies. Our skin is our bodies largest organ. Would you think it safe to rub them over your liver?. Of coarse not.

Emerging research on the sheer volume of toxic chemicals entering women’s bodies through their cosmetics brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “it hurts to be beautiful.”

The average woman absorbs 4lb 6oz of chemicals from toiletries and make-up every year, the industry itself reported ten years ago, in the trade magazine In-Cosmetics.

Two years later, research by the natural deodorant company Bionsen found that the average woman’s annual grooming routine exposes her to a staggering 515 different synthetic chemicals.

More recently, research by the nonprofit Environmental Working Group found that between cosmetics, perfumes, personal care products and feminine hygiene products, the average American woman applies an average of 168 chemicals to her face and body every day.

The discrepancy in numbers may be due to the types of products included in the surveys.

No matter what the true number is, it’s too high say health experts and activists who are trying to raise awareness about 1300 cosmetic chemicals banned by the European Union, but perfectly legal in the U.S.

Those chemicals include known and probable carcinogens, neurotoxins and reproductive toxins that lead to infertility.

94 percent of American women and 69 percent of American men apply the known carcinogen hydroquinone to their skin daily, as part of their personal care routine, according to the Environmental Working Group study.

One out of every five American adults are exposed to all seven of the common carcinogens found in personal care products — hydroquinone, ethylene dioxide, 1,4-dioxane, formaldehyde, nitrosamines, PAHs, and acrylamide — on a daily basis.

One of every 24 women are exposed daily to personal care ingredients that are known or probable reproductive and developmental toxins, linked to impaired fertility or developmental harm for a baby in the womb or a child, the study says.

And those statistics don’t even include the hormone-disrupting phthalates that appear in an estimated three quarters of all personal care products but that, as components of fragrance, are not listed on ingredient labels.

Among the most well-known toxins in cosmetics are parabens — antimicrobial preservatives widely used in soap, shampoo, deodorant and lotion — that mimic the effects of the female sex hormone estrogen, which is known to help tumors grow.

Many brands have now replaced parabens with more “natural” preservatives like phenoxyethanol, but according to the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database, they are often just as toxic.

Aside from parabens, Raw is Everything skincare founder Jessica Assaf says there’s another category of ingredients we should never touch.

“Any petroleum derivative — so mineral oil, petrolatum, petroleum — this is actually crude oil,” she told the Huffington Post. “We’re putting crude oil on our faces and it’s drying out our skin and doing what it’s intending to cure.”

“The most empowering thing you can do to start this process is use an oil from your kitchen cabinet to take off your makeup,” Assaf says. “Try using coconut oil or olive oil. You can also use it as an oil cleanser or as a moisturizer. Just try something you consider a food as a skin care product.”

Biochemist Richard Bence warns absorbing chemicals through our skin is more dangerous than swallowing them.

“If your lipstick gets into your mouth, it is broken down by the enzymes in saliva and in the stomach,” he told the Daily Mail. “But if the chemicals get straight into your bloodstream, there is no protection.”

Hair colorants are are by far the worst offenders.

I have been an independent cancer researcher for almost 2 decades and have had issues purchasing natural products. The word “Natural”is rarely true. I have been making many of my own personal hygene products for many years. I have only found one source of natural makeup made from only one natural mineral with nothing added, you can sleep in it and it actually heals skin and never blocks pores. The Name is Lady May Mineral makeup

I hope more people will understand the health consequences of everyday items they think are safe but unfortunately are not!!

About the Author

Amanda-Mary
With almost twenty years spent researching and treating Cancer, I am a well respected author, teacher and health coach.

I do have a list of qualifications, but I find them cumbersome and false. The fact I am a qualified Holistic Doctor is neither here, nor there. Medical education is entirely corrupt and something that can be used against you. I go on courses in order to learn, not to buy a badge to hide behind, or a stick to beat people with.

So much nonsense has been written about me that I never read, or choose to absorb. It’s all about them, never about me. I have been attacked and targeted simply because I have helped people and not been silenced. A common misconception is that I am holistic, but the truth is I do not sit on either side of the imaginary divide between what is “mainstream” and what is “holistic.” There is greed and corruption on both sides and examples of bad practice in every field.
Personally, I am only interested in what works and improves the life of the patient.

In some cases, radiation can work and so am happy to recommend that route, if it works and saves a life in an emergency situation. But there is no ‘one size fits all’ and no cookie cutter protocol. There are many variables in healing the body. We are all individual and all capable of change, so each case must be considered individually. What works for one, may not work for another. Mass medication is wrong.
My research and work has led me all over the world and got me into some tight spots at times, but I am thankful for every twist and turn and have learned a lot from each. I am wiser as a result and see that life teaches us all. I recovered from breast cancer 20 years ago, which has saved my life over and over and made me very aware of how fleeting and precious life is. I live each day to the full and as if it were my last.
I have twenty children, many of whom are adopted, four are mine naturally. I love and adore them all and am honored to have been able to raise them, for now they are strong and independent adults. My children are the most important people in my life.

I despise materialism, I have old fashioned views and feel the modern world has lost much in the way of values and common decency. So I travel the world with my partner and 6-year-old daughter, helping people and sharing knowledge. I am still learning and feel that everyday is a school day. The reason I started this blog was so I could pass on some of this knowledge to others.

I speak the truth about everything and my honest approach shocks many, as I tend to say the things most people would not. I focus on solutions, as I am a problem solver at heart and there is only one truth. Stick to the truth and you will never go far wrong.

I hope you enjoy our blog site and the articles we labor over for your benefit. Please donate to the cause on the page above, as we do not receive a penny in advertising, or sponsorship. It is all from the heart.

Love and light.
