Why Gluten-Free, paraben-free, phthalate free, and vegan?
Your skin is the largest organ of your body and because it is porous, it absorbs whatever you put on it. A study published in the American Journal of Public Health looked into the skin’s absorption rates of chemicals found in drinking water. It showed that the skin absorbed an average of 64% of total contaminant dosage. Other studies found the face to be several times more absorbent than broad body surfaces. Underarms and genitalia showed an absorption rate of 100%. What we apply to our skin, ends up in our bodies. It is important that we pay close attention to the ingredients in our skincare products. The majority of body care products contain a cocktail of carcinogenic chemicals, allergens, and irritants.
