Ninety percent of skin-care products on the market contain ingredients that can be carcinogenic, estrogenic, or teratogenic, with the potential for long-term serious neurological disorders and conditions. The use of Endocrine-disrupting xenoestrogenic chemicals, such as parabens, phthalates, bisphenol A (BPA), BHT, and BHA are commonly found in everyday personal care products such as cosmetics, shampoo, lotions, sunscreens, hand washing soaps, lining of canned foods, and ﬂame retardant clothing such as children’s pajama’s, to name a few.
DermaQOL Personal Care products are speciﬁcally formulated from a select group of certiﬁed organic essential oils, extracts, and resins combined with natural materials that meet our strict standards and ‘free of harsh ingredient list’.
Skin is the body’s largest organ; so everything we put on our skin can potentially end up in our bodies. Because many carcinogens and nano-ingredients are absorbed through the skin they can bypass the liver, entering the bloodstream and the body organs without being detoxiﬁed,thus posing greater risk than food contaminated with the same substances. And children absorb 30-percent more chemicals than adults.
Xenoestrogens are hormone disruptors that minic the efects of estrogen, a hormone naturally produced by the body’s endocrine system. The body mistakes these synthetic chemicals for its own hormones, thereby disrupting the natural process of human growth, development, and metabolism. Published studies show there is mounting evidence that chronic exposure to xenoestrogens can disrupt normal endocrine function, which can lead to reproductive failure and cancers of estrogen-sensitive tissues.
