Potential toxins in everyday products - some of the ingredients used are just cheap petroleum product based fillers, some are the same as used in engine degreasers and antifreeze, aluminum is linked to Alzheimer's disease, some may suffocate the skin's breathing surface, some dry up the skin and help in aging the skin, others may cause harm on the eyes or in the brain, among other potential problems (including being a carcinogen that can cause cancer).

There are children who show signs of illness that no one can pinpoint a cause for - and in many cases it has been linked directly to the houshold products being used in the home, or to a soap - if you have a child who doesn't seem to be able to get well - try removing products and foods one by one to see if there is improvement. It might be a soap, or the laundry detergent, or a lotion, or a cleaning solution. It might be a food allergy. Once you pinpoint it, you can take the steps to change out the products that are causing problems.

Look at your kitchen. Get rid of your pots and pans with Teflon - it is harmful and pieces flick off into your food. Aluminum can cook its elements into your food - aluminum is linked to Alzheimer's and should be avoided. The intense cleaners you use can have ingredients which are awful - for hands, or for giving off toxic fumes.

We advocate SAFE products for everyone - especially for children and babies. Some products and toxins may cause asthma, and there are more illnesses that don't even have a known cause but can be suspected from use of certain products, or in everyday exposures to toxins (like the air we breathe, like the chemicals in produce at the store, like the lack of nutrients in our foods). Don't use poisons on your family - control the exposures that you can.

Potentially harmful ingredients in personal products include:
alcohol, alpha hydroxy acid, aluminum, bar soap, bentonite or kaolin, collagen and elastin, DEA, fluoride, glycerine, hyaluronic acid, lanolin, mineral oil, petrolatum, propylene glycol, sodium chloride (yes- even salt in large quantity - as a filler for skin products, can cause problems), sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, talc, among others.

Do you know what is in the make-up (cosmetics) you use? There are toxins and harsh ingredients that can cause harm. The cosmetic industry is unregulated and some ingredients in cosmetics can be toxic. Eye cosmetics can flake off into eyes and cause distress, even blinding the user. There are ingredients which can seep into the skin and bloodstream, causing problems.
