SOAPS DIRTY LITTLE SECRET
Soap is one of those things we take for granted. But what is soap? And does it matter what kind we use?
Yes, it most certainly does matter what we use, and here is why …
MUCH OF WHAT IS CALLED “SOAP” TODAY IS PETROLEUM-BASED DETERGENT
Much of what is called “soap” today is not really soap at all, but petroleum-based detergent. In fact most of the products sold commercially used for bathing, shampooing, and toothpaste are actually synthetic detergents.
SKIN SERVES AS AN EXCELLENT BARRIER BUT IT IS ALSO EXCELLENT IN ABSORBING SOME OF WHAT WE ARE EXPOSED TO ENVIRONMENTALLY AS WELL AS WHAT WE PUT ON IT
Whatever our skin is exposed to has the potential to be absorbed by our skin and stored in our body’s fatty tissues. Many factors play a part in determining what materials are able to make it through the various layer of skin but the reality is various materials do cross these barriers. The toxins in soap that are able to cross these barriers are stored in fatty tissues and eventually reach levels that suppress immune systems, damaging liver, kidneys, and lungs. Combined with synthetic colorants these can trigger a wide number of behavioral, learning, and health problems, and cause severe allergic reactions, asthma attacks, headaches, nausea, fatigue, nervousness, lack of concentration, and cancer. The skin around our mouth is especially vulnerable with an absorption efficiency of over 90 percent.
CHILDREN ARE PARTICULARLY AT RISK
Children are particularly at risk, as they have a greater sensitivity and proportion of skin area than adults.
It seems… we have unknowingly taken to washing ourselves with synthetic chemicals.
It is important to research the ingredients list of commercial soaps. Our health depends on it. Products must use certified organic ingredients to be safe and beneficial. When we use organics we will discover improvements in our skin and hair, and many times our health. Numerous stories have been written about skin and health issues being minimized and even eliminated by using organic products.
A LAST NOTE
Due to the meticulous farming standards and certified processes to eliminate poisons and toxins, organics are more expensive, but … much less expensive than the health issues and medical bills associated with using toxins.
