In addition to looking at the cell phone when the toilet is bored, we can also take a look at the following chemicals in the personal care products we are using?
Methylisothiazolinone (MIT or MI)
It is usually used as a preservative in lotions, cosmetics, shampoos, conditioners and household products. Because it is very common, it may cause a variety of skin reactions and sensitivity.
Butylated hydroxyanisole & 2,6-dibutyl (Butylated hydroxyanisole, referred to as BHA) It is usually used as a preservative in cosmetics such as sunscreen, lipstick and moisturizing lotion. It can cause skin allergic reaction, interfere with endocrine and cause cancer. There is evidence that these chemical components can mimic estrogen, so it is recommended that pregnant women must stay away from any products containing these substances.
Usually used in shampoo, conditioner, hair spray, moisturizing lotion and various cosmetics. Studies have confirmed that they can invade the skin, blood and digestive system, and even cause breast cancer and skin cancer.
Usually used in nail polish, nail glue, false eyelash glue, hair spray, hair care products, baby shampoo, bath soap, as well as preservatives and disinfectants in cleaning products and cosmetics. This chemical substance is controlled by the American Toxicology Program It is recognized as a carcinogen that is harmful to the human body. It may also cause skin allergies and cause dermatitis. In addition, formaldehyde is also classified as one of the most terrible indoor pollution factors.
Polyethylene glycol (PEG)
Usually used in moisturizing lotions, deodorants, cosmetics, soap, toothpaste and hair removal products. This substance can make the product foam easily and penetrate the skin. One of PEG is that it will be contaminated by certain possible carcinogens, and even uncontaminated PEG may cause skin discomfort and inflammation.
Bubbles are not equal to cleaning power
Maybe you think that any detergent should have a soft, silky foam. In fact, the amount of foaming has nothing to do with the cleaning power. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), a raw material generally used to foam products, is a very irritating chemical ingredient that can cause skin discomfort.
Essential oils, the natural preservatives
Most essential oils have strong antibacterial activity, which can effectively eliminate or slow down the spread of harmful microorganisms. You can also add raw materials to enhance the antibacterial power of essential oils. For example, honey and beeswax are known for their antibacterial properties. Sugar and alcohol-containing glycerin can also be combined to create useful natural preservatives.
