Why is what we do at Underground Naturals important?
When you read the back of your shampoo bottle, do you know and understand all of the ingredients on that list? If you are like most of us, you don’t. You cannot even begin to understand what half of what you are reading actually means.
This should concern you!
…because the largest organ of your body is your skin, and it absorbs over 60% of what you put onto it.
Why is this a big deal?
The average woman wears around 515 chemicals every day. From makeup, soap, face lotion, and perfume to cleaning the house with every cleaner known to man, we are introduced to chemicals. There are more than 10,000 chemical ingredients that are permitted in our personal care products, and many of them are hazardous to our health.
If you are not convinced that your skin absorbs most of these chemicals, think about this: conventional lipstick is the most universally used beauty product in a woman’s arsenal. These beauty products actually contain some of the most dangerous chemicals and we willingly place these chemicals right on our mouths!
Our bodies have been found to be filled with the chemicals that we willingly use consistently. According to www.fightchronicdisease.org, by 2030 almost half of the US population will be fighting chronic disease. From heart disease and stroke to cancer, normal Americans are trying to figure out why they are consistently sick. Many of these illnesses can be linked to the chemicals that can be found in our systems.
Underground Naturals is dedicated to teaching you about the adverse effects of these chemicals and to help give you a better alternative to the products you use every day. Take time to read through our articles, and send us questions. We would love to hear from you.
