What you put on your skin matters


Did you know dōTERRA has an entire line of personal care products? All of the products are clean, meaning they are free of toxic chemicals found in the majority of commonly used products. 


 What are chemical toxins and how do they effect you and your family? The skin is your largest organ, what you put on it is absorbed into your bloodstream. The average woman in the United States uses over 15 personal care products daily, the average man about six. Each product containing a dozen or more chemicals! Many of these chemicals are carcinogens, neurotoxins and contain reproductive toxins! 

  • Parabens are linked to is early puberty in children and early menopause in women. Parabens mimic estrogen by binding to estrogen receptors on cells. 
  • Phthalates are known as endocrine disruptors because they mimic the body’s hormones and have, in laboratory animal tests, been shown to cause reproductive and neurological damage. Phthalates are also in products with “Fragrance”.
  • NDEA is absorbed through the skin and has been linked with stomach, esophagus, liver and bladder cancers.
  • Petrolatum coats the skin like plastic, clogging pores and creating a build-up of toxins. They can slow cellular development, creating earlier signs of aging. They’re implicated as a suspected cause of cancer. Plus, they can disrupt hormonal activity.
  •  PROPLENE GLYCOL IS ANTIFREEZE. It’s linked to kidney and liver disease.

...unfortunately the lists goes on and on...
