Do You Know What Is Touching Your Skin?
Did you know that our skin is the largest organ on our body?
But we bombard it with chemically-laden products more often than not unknowingly.
Let's uncover the facts of 3 main products that stay close to our skin every single day and what we may not know that could be harming our health and wellbeing.
1. Our Underwear
Our underwear is the closest thing to our skin all day and night long, and it is touching the most sensitive part of our body.
Our underwear absorbs our sweat, absorbs the toxins released from our body and absorbs the chemical dyes in our underwear into the skin and bloodstream.
Our underwear can be a trap and cause serious health issues.
Certified organic cotton underwear prevents yeast and bacteria growth as it breathes and lets air flow through.
As well as this, certified organic cotton does not use any toxic dyes, pesticides or chemicals that are hazardous to our health and that of the Earth.
2. Our Sheets
Unlike the foods that we eat and the beauty products we put on our bodies, we probably do not analyze the health factors of one of the most intimate spaces in our homes - our beds.
Our beds should be a safe haven for our body, mind and soul.
We spend more time wrapped in our sheets than with the clothes we wear.
During the journey of conventional cotton into a fabric, numerous toxic chemicals are added at each stage of growing, processing, dyeing and handling.
- silicone waxes
- harsh petroleum scours
- heavy metals
- flame and soil retardants
To name just a few...
And it is these toxic substances that make their way into our bodies, our bloodstream and lymphatic systems while we sleep.
We breathe in the toxic cocktail into our skin and bloodstream when we sleep forcing our immune systems to fight an uphill battle.
3. Our Towels
Did you know after a warm shower our pores are open and our skin will absorb chemicals very quickly - it takes less than 6 seconds for our bodies to absorb the toxic load of our chemicals.
Fabric softeners, chemical finishers or synthetic blends make towels feel softer but they are a toxic cocktail for our body and health.
