The average daily beauty regimen of a woman exposes her to over 515 synthetic chemicals. Many of those chemicals may lead to serious health issues after long-term use. Chief among these are hormonal disruptions and greater cancer risks. Recent work by the Breast Cancer Fund in San Francisco highlights many of the common chemicals found in our beauty products and the potential health risks posed by exposure. Let’s protect ourselves with awareness of these dangers and move towards chemical-free beauty products. For more details about breast cancer risks and chemical exposure from cosmetics, common household products, etc check out the Breast Cancer Fund’s blog. Spread the word.
