Cosmetics: Chemicals and hormonal imbalance

It’s a popular belief that many additives/chemicals in our food make our immune system weaker, but what about the chemical in cosmetics we use everyday?

I’ll show you possible side effects and some easy and natural & organic recipes for avoiding chemicals in cosmetics.

What are endocrine disruptors?

Chemical compounds that can mimic the structural function of the hormones, and alter our normal body functioning

Where are they found?

They are in cosmetics, plastics (when heated), pesticides and clothes (polyester).

Average stats

  • 1 woman uses 15 different cosmetics p/day
  • 1 man uses 7
  • Each cosmetic has 37 ingredients.

How the can affect us?

They send a wrong message to our brain (is like your pc having a virus)

The can alter the DNA and cause:
Estradiol, testosterone, Vit D3, A, thyroid hormone: imbalances
Breast and skin cancer
Kids born with an imbalanced hormonal mom, also show hormonal imbalances

How to avoid them?

Buy organic or natural whenever possible. They are more expensive but you are investing on your own health.
