What is in your regular soap?
Many soap products we use to get clean for example body wash, facial soaps, and just regular bar soap may be doing more harm than good. One of the main ways our bodies soak in and receive nutrients other than eating is through our skin. A special membrane within our skin allows us to absorb all the minerals and nutrients, but unfortunately our skin will also absorb harmful chemicals as well. Chemicals in soap are very common and can be very serious to our overall health. Chemicals can fluctuate hormone production, increase chances of skin cancer, induce allergies, and even lead to reproductive problems.
What to watch out for?
When buying soap there are four main chemicals and ingredients that a consumer should keep in mind before purchasing. The first chemical is “Fragrance” if your looking on the back of the bottle at ingredients and see the listing “Fragrance.” The company is being vague and could be hiding something. Currently the FDA does not enforce companies to disclose fragrant ingredients because the chemicals used to make the fragrance is consider “trade secrets.” Another harmful ingredient added to common soaps is “Parabens.” When parabens enter the bloodstream the body mistakes them as estrogen blockers and disrupts hormone production. Sulfates are another common ingredient added to soaps that do more harm than good. Sulfates strip our bodies natural oils and increase risk of penetration to our skin. Last common chemical to keep an eye out for is “Triclosan.” Studies have shown that Triclosan, most commonly found in antibacterial soaps, actually increases growth of bacteria on our skin.
