In this video, we’re taking a look at the processed chemicals in body washes and the effect these can have on us, especially if you have particularly dry skin, sensitive skin or skin issues like acne or eczema.
The skin is the largest organ in our bodies and it’s one of the only ones (apart from the gut and the lungs) that we treat topically.
An Environmental Working Group Survey found that we women on average use around 12 different products, containing 168 different ingredients daily …that’s huge!
So, we could effectively be “feeding” our skin over 100 different chemicals before we even have breakfast …pretty shocking hey?
And the reality is that some of these chemicals will be absorbed into our systems and the research falls down on both sides with this. We don’t REALLY know what the long term or the cumulative effects of this exposure really is.
So, when we scrutinise our skincare products to reduce the amount of chemicals we expose ourselves to, we’re also reducing the detoxification load on our livers, meaning we’ll be much healthier and more resilient, and less crap will be pushed to the skin to be eliminated.
Which is so important if you have acne or eczema!
And with good liver detoxification, your skin will naturally be clearer and more radiant!
As someone who has particularly sensitive skin, I struggled for years to find a shower solution that:
A) didn’t have a massive ingredient list, full of unpronouncable chemicals that I really didn’t want to put on my skin, and
B) Didn’t make my skin red, flakey and itchy or breakout in acne spots
