November 30, 2010 by Leanne Vogel July 21, 2015In yesterdays post we talked about all the nasty chemicals found in our everyday beauty and cleaning products. What I’d like to point out here is that the studies that have been performed on these substances have deemed these chemicals as safe in small doses, fair enough. If a small dose is in your life here and there, your liver (if it’s functioning at top performance aka healthy) should be able to detoxify the chemical from your body, no harm done. It’s when we have constant toxicity from our foods, environment – the air we breath, the water we drink, from the lotions we put on our skin, the body wash, the tooth paste, deodorant, shaving cream. It’s when ALL of this is toxic that we have a huge problem, our body just can’t keep up with the detoxification of all of these chemicals. Simple as that. While not all of us are willing to go 100% clean (I’ll be the first to admit that I saved my amazing bottle of Thierry Mugler Alien perfume for special occasions and don’t feel guilty when I treat myself every couple of months) there are steps we can take to minimize our toxic load, where we feel comfortable.
