Why YOU should start your DIY chemical free journey.

Our skin is the largest organ in or I should say on our body.  It can absorb up to 60% of what it is exposed to topically.

Lets consider all the products we expose our skin to daily.....

  • Soap

  • Make up

  • Shaving cream

  • Deodorant 

  • Body Sprays

  • Toothpaste

  • Sunscreen

  • Body wash

  • Moisturisers

  • Shampoo

  • Conditioner

  • Antibacterial soaps

  • Hand Sanitisers

  • Hairspray

  • Bubblebath

  • Hair products

  • Nail polish

  • Chest rubs and balms

  • Muscle rubs

  • Insect repellents

  • Perfume and Cologne

  • Laundry powders and liquids

  • Fabric Softener

Cleaning products eg. 

  • Dishwashing liquad

  • Spray and wipes

  • Air Fresheners

  • Dishwashing powder

Now do you know what these products contain? What are all those chemical ingredients with the long names? Just a handful of common ingredients a found in your everyday products are:-

Parabens (methyl, butyl, propyl, isobutyl, ethyl)

 

  • Used in moisturisers, shampoo, makeup, fragrance and many more. 

  • Parabens may mimic estrogen's, interfere male reproduction functions etc.

 

DBP (dibutyl phthalate, fragrance, PVC, Diethyl phthalate or DEP, parfum) 

 

  • Used in nail products, hair spray, fragrances, deodorant, hair mouse, hair gel, hand and body lotions even medicine. 

  • DBP may also cause endocrine disruptor.  It may also cause developmental defects/changes in testes, prostate and reduces sperm count, impair fertility, etc.

 

Siloxanes (Dimethicone, cyclomethicone, cyclotetrasiloxane, D4, D5, PDMS plydimethylsiloxane)

 

  • Used in moisturiser, makeup, hair products, deodorant, lubricants, medical implants. 

  • Siloxane may also be an endocrine disruptor and may affect fertility etc.

Triclosan

 

  • Used in antibacterial products, toothpaste, soaps, hand sanitisers, deodorants, cleansers, mouthwash, laundry powders, tissues, antiseptics for wounds, antibacterial cleaners, garbage bags, clothing etc. 

  • Triclosan may cause endocrine disruption and worst of all may be an antibiotic resistance and immune system assault.

These ingredients are in products everywhere. Our skin is absorbing up to 60% of these ingredients.  Think about it from the time you wake up to the time you go to sleep how many chemicals are you and your family applying to your skin?

 

It is said that the average adult female applies up to 515 chemicals to her skin a day!! That is 309 chemicals a day absorbing into your blood stream!!!

 

Now think about your family, your children, even the children yet to be born.  What are you exposing yourself to? What are you exposing them to? 

 

Our children are washing their hands, apply hand sanitisers, oral care, hair care, sunscreens, shower time, bubble bath etc and all the ingredients are absorbing into their little bodies.

So what can you do............

DIY is the easiest, most affordable and most successful way to reduce your chemical exposure.  When you DIY you have complete control of ......

  • where & how the product is made

  • the quality of ingrdients eg. natural, organic

  • create products with minimal ingredients

  • packaging eg. glass

  • cost of product 

DIY is often seen as being scary and most of the time put in the "too hard basket".  I am here to help you succeed with reducing your chemical exposure through DIY.
