We all know that the commercial hygiene and cosmetic products contain high amounts of harmful toxins and chemicals, which are usually absorbed into your skin and through the skin they make their way into your bloodstream. According to the latest statistics, one in eight of the 82,000 ingredients used in personal care products are industrial chemicals, such as: carcinogens, pesticides, reproductive toxins and hormone disruptors. The bad thing is that even famous natural skin care brands, like Burt’s Bees and Lush also use ingredients, which are known allergens, hormone disruptors and they can cause organ system toxicity. But, you shouldn’t be worried, because there are natural alternatives, which are much safer and more effective than these harmful commercial hygiene and cosmetic products. One of these healthy and natural alternatives is coconut oil.
