Did you know that the average person today is exposed to 300 harsh chemicals in a single day, and at least 62 of those chemicals are used on their bodies before breakfast?
A lot of these artificial chemicals are highly toxic. Young children are especially more vulnerable because they breathe at a faster rate and their organs, including the brain, are rapidly growing and developing.
Most toxins are from five main culprits - soap, shampoo, skin care products, hair care products, and makeup. Beyond these, the biggest pollutants in our homes are all-purpose cleaners, fabric softener, dryer sheets, air freshener plug-ins, and candles.
Health and safety data only exists for 15% of the 100,000+ chemicals out there, and even when a label is green and brown, and marketed with terms like ‘natural’ and ‘organic’, reading the label to identify the hidden toxins is critical.
Learn how to identify these toxins and strive for a 'chemical-free home' from Wellness Consultant Heta Dave.
