The first personal care product we switched out in our home was hand soap. Think of how many times a day, you and your family use hand soap...each of those ones can expose you to harmful toxins.
The top 5 toxins to be aware of are:
1)1,4 Dioxane (8 On EWG rating) known eye and respiratory irritant
2) Sodium Lauryl Sulfate - linked to eczema and dermatitis
3) Triclosan, a pesticide and known hormone disruptor.
4) Parabens, mimic hormones and disrupt the endocrine system
5) Ureas, (10 On EWG) a carcinogen, respiratory toxin, skin toxin and environmental toxin.
That’s just 5! There are so many more!
The rate of disease, obesity, early onset of puberty, etc - exposing our bodies to these chemicals on a daily basis is wreaking havoc on our health.
We switched out our popular chain store soaps for On Guard hand soap! Not only is it toxin free but it’s also depositing On Guard Essential Oil into our bodies with each use - helping to build up and support our immune system.
Remember: your skin is your largest organ - what are you putting on it?
