Are SHOCKING Ingredients Lurking In Your Home?

Have you Read the Warning Labels on your Personal Care Products?

Would you wash your children's hair and brush their teeth with brake fluid, engine degreaser or anti-freeze? You probably are and don't know it!

Check for these potentially harmful ingredients - this is a very short list (tip of the iceberg) but ingredients that are commonly used in many personal care products.

Alcohol: May increase the risk of developing oral and throat cancer.

Aluminum: Related to nerve damage and brain disorders, such as Alzheimer's.

Butane: Aerosol propellant. Is flammable and in high doses may be narcotic or cause asphyxiation.

Diethanolamine (DEA): Foam-boosting surfactant. A potential carcinogen that may form carcinogenic nitrosamines when combines with nitrites.

Flavoring: Some can be potentially carcinogenic.

Fluoride: A potential carcinogen

Propane: Aerosol propellant. Is flammable and in high doses may be narcotic.

Propylene Glycol: Has been shown to cause dermatitis, kidney and liver abnormalities. Inhibits skin cell growth. Very irritating to the skin. May damage cell membranes causing rashes, dry skin and surface damage to skin/

Salt: Very drying, irritating, and corrosive.

Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES): Same effects as SLS,. only much harsher. Contains ether.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS): SLS is a harsh industrial cleaning chemical. Builds up in the heart, liver, lungs, and brain. Could retard healing, cause cataracts, roughen skin, and lead to improper eye development in children under 6 years. Can cause roughness and flaking of the skin. Is a caustic cleanser that could corrode the hair follicle and may impair its ability to grown hair. Is routinely used in clinical studies to deliberately irritate the skin so the effects of other substances can be tested.

Sodium Fluoride: Has been shown to be a potential carcinogen.

Talc: Skin irritant. A known carcinogen and cause of ovarian cancer

Tallow (Animal Fat): Weighs down the hair and attracts dirt.
