If you’re tired of buying expensive skin care solutions at the store or online that contain harsh chemicals, you’re not alone. There are some extremely harmful ingredients used in current skin care products, including parabens, phthalates, and benzoyl peroxide, that have been linked to allergies, cancers, neurological disorders, and reproductive issues.
Some products even make it to market without adequate laboratory testing.
According to Healthy Food House, Elizabeth Sword, executive director of the Children’s Health Environmental Coalition, says: “There are industry trade secrets and formulations that for industry reasons are kept from the consumer. This prevents the consumer from making fully informed decisions.”
But the good news is that you can actually make an amazing skin care solution yourself with a few simple ingredients and a little bit of time.
