Healthy & Naturally Awesome People
If you have been reading our articles on personal health and chemical toxicity then you would know that much of what you are putting on your skin is sadly finding its way into you.
We know Oxybenzone, a chemical compound found in almost all suncreams made today, kills Coral Reefs. But do you know what it does to you and your body?
Very few people know about the impacts of these harsh and often dangerous chemicals found in most cosmetics produced in the world today. That is why it is a primary mission for FGC (Feel Good Cosmetics) to make cosmetics that feature only natural ingredients and minerals that biodegrade and do not enter into our food chain and hence into you and I.
How Do These Chemicals Get Into Me?
There are two primary ways that chemical compounds enter into humans, the first is through skin absorbtion and the second is through consumption (eating).
I doubt any here has ever truly wanted to eat Suncream, maybe you did it on a dare or something. Point here is that you don’t have to eat it for it to enter your body in harmful amounts. You just have to be eating something that ate something that ate something contaminated with Oxybenzone or other nasties, you know like Lead or Tin.
Here is a quick diagram to illustrate.
Pretty simple, these chemicals have long term effects on us and the environment and they simply persist for many many years in both, some like Oxybenzone may not ever leave your body, sadly not many people know the real cost of us absorbing it but the few studies done do not point to it being beneficial.
Removing The Chemicals From Us
There is no easy fix from the local Chemist to just wash all the Oxybenzone or other horrible chemicals we have all absorbed into us. No detox kit exists for them, the only way to get them out of your body is to let you body naturally over time remove them from your system, if it can.
But even if you have absorbed them and it is very likely you have, simply stopping your use of cosmetics that contain them will lower your risks for any nasty side effects they may potentially cause. Avoidance is a very good policy!
The second befit to not using chemical based products and only using natural and mineral based cosmetics is, that you will be flushing less of it into our ecosystem.
That gives plants and animals a good chance at not absorbing them also!
Healthy People Are Important To Us
It’s important to recognise that many of the studies that have been done on these chemicals, let’s use Oxybenzone again as an example, have been found to be disruptive to male testosterone production and have been found to disrupt and cause heavy imbalances in hormone levels in women.
I’ve been around Women with temporary hormonal imbalances, and I do not recommend it. So do you want a world full of permanently hormonally imbalanced people living and working around you?
Help us kick harsh chemical cosmetics to the curb, lets all get our bodies ‘back to basics’ and let FGC produce the beauty products that you need, while keeping your body safe and your mind healthy!
That is our goal, lofty yes, impossible maybe, but that is not going to stop us producing affordable and effective all natural health care cosmetics for you, your family and for the world.
