What goes on your body, goes in your body
Sometimes I want to shake people and say, “Wake Up”! You have the power to make a difference in your life. You’ve always had the power. People are using products on their body and in their homes and that are hormone disruptors. No one can force you to become more aware of what you put on your body and what you put in your body. What you eat is just as important as what you put on your body. Adjusting your life, reading labels and catering to your specific health needs isn’t easy but it will benefit you in the long run. This is one of the smartest decisions that you can make. Not only will you start to look and feel better but think of the medical cost that you could be saving your future self.
Did you know that it takes 26 seconds for the chemicals in personal body care products to enter into your bloodstream? Makeup is an essential beauty item used by women to help enhance one’s personal appearance and self-esteem.
Makeup can be fun, and anyone who wants to wear it should. However, it does seem to bother me when women aren’t aware that they are applying hundreds of layers of chemicals on their face or body. Although you may be enhancing your own personal appearance the chemicals in conventional makeup are often very harsh on the skin.
Beauty products gives me that confidence boost that I personally need to get through my day. It makes me feel comfortable, confident, empowered and bold in my skin. I also believe that it can be a form of art. This allows each individual to express themselves with makeup, body lotions and perfumes. Diet alone isn’t enough to help your body start fighting this battle that is raging in your body. The food you eat is your first line of defense against these hormone-disrupting chemicals are external substances that alter the functions of the endocrine system (the system of glands that produce secretions that help to control bodily activity).You must start addressing other areas in your life that can cause inflammation.
Endocrine disruptors are tricky chemicals that play on our bodies. They increase production of certain hormones; decreasing production of others; imitating hormones; turning one hormone into another; interfering with hormone signaling; telling cells to die prematurely; competing with essential nutrients; binding to essential hormones; accumulating in organs that produce hormones. You can start avoiding these chemicals by starting with detoxifying your beauty routine.
If you want to protect your body from the harmful ingredients that are used in most commercial brands, you should check out organic skin care products and organic make-up. Start reading labels and asking questions. There is definitely a way to become Successful when you start to detox your beauty routine and exchange it for clean Beauty Swaps. I am going to show you where and how to begin—and why you should —along with a list of some easy switch outs.
Government regulations allow virtually any ingredient to be used in the manufacture of products that we use daily on our skin, hair, and nails, and in the water we drink. It only makes sense to start doing your own research.
The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) establishes the regulations and standards in the United States regarding the manufacture of drugs & food. The problem is that they do not pay as much attention to skin care and make-up as they should, thereby allowing some very harmful chemicals to be used in creating almost every product that is mass marketed. Close to 20% of personal-care products contain at least one chemical linked to cancer, and yet the FDA has not regulated beauty ingredients since 1938. I’m also speaking of the same FDA who has approved aspartame, saccharin, human growth hormone in our food products. Along with nasty artificial colorings, flavorings and chemicals which have proven to harm our health.
Have you taken the time to read or google what is in your personal body care products?
Some of the harmful ingredients that are used frequently in manufacturing the most common non-organic skin care and make-up items include:
Ammonium Laureth Sulfate
Alcohol, Isopropyl (SD-40)
The FDA doesn’t regulate what ingredients go into makeup products or the labels that are placed on them. A lip gloss may be labeled “organic” or “all-natural,” but it could just be a marketing ploy. Manufacturers know that there is a higher demand for natural products these days, so they’ll do anything to convince consumers that what they’re selling is indeed natural. Sometimes these products only contain about 10 percent “natural” ingredients with the rest are those nasty ingredients that are full of toxins – toxins that could be linked to cancer and Alzheimer’s.
Mainstream cosmetics should be filled with nutrients that truly benefit your beauty and enhance your health.
Vitamin C: This antioxidant superpower fights free radicals, which attack the skin’s support structure and leads to imparting collagen and the aging of skin.
Vitamin E: This antioxidant soothes out the skin and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Vitamin A: This is important to help repair the skin. If seem to have dull, flaky, or quite brass skin, look for products that include this nutrient.
5 Ingredients to Avoid in Body Products
- 1. Parabens: Parabens are preservatives added to body products to prevent the growth of bacteria and mold. Parabens are endocrine disruptors, meaning they can alter your hormone mechanisms in the body. They also mimic estrogen. Parabens can lock on to the cell’s own estrogen receptors and disrupt cellular communications.
- BHA and BHT: This is put into products to extend the shelf life. These chemicals are probable carcinogens, endocrine disruptors and have been known to be hard on your liver.
- Polyethylene glycol: Polyethylene glycol is used to make lotions and potions thicker, softer and easier for moisture to be added to the skin. Unfortunately, depending on the manufacturing process, PEG compounds are often contaminated with ethylene oxide and 1, 4-dioxane, both of which are carcinogens.
- Fragrance: Fragrance just a term used to describe over 3,000 chemical ingredients. Companies do not have to disclose what ingredients make up their products when they list “fragrance” on the label because the term is protected by federal law (under trade secrets). Many chemicals listed as fragrance are endocrine disruptors and known allergens.
- 5. Mineral Oil (also called liquid paraffin, liquid petroleum, and paraffin oil): Mineral oil is a byproduct of crude oil called petroleum distillation is a nicer term but it’s frequently added to baby lotions.
4 oz. Shea butter
1 oz. coconut oil
1 oz. jojoba oil
6 drops cypress essential oil
4 drops cinnamon essential oil
6 drops wild orange essential oil
3 drops of pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of Vitamin E oil
In a double boiler over simmering water completely melt your shea butter. Remove from heat and add your coconut oil and jojoba oil. Blend together gently until completely mixed. Place the double boiler into an ice bath, make sure to not get any water into the mixture. Continue to mix until it begins to turn opaque. Lastly add your essential oils/extract/and antioxidant while stirring. I prefer to use a hand mixer to whip the mixture gently to where it will give it a soufflé-like texture.
After the mixture has cooled to room temperature transfer the body butter to a mason jar with a sealable lid using the spatula to avoid wasting any of the body butter. Seal the jar with your lid and allow it to sit overnight. Make sure to label and date your body butter’s lid.
Lemon Cream Body Butter
6 Tablespoons coconut oil
¼ cup cocoa butter
1 Tablespoon vitamin E oil
3 drops of Lemon essential oil or 3 drops of your favorite essential oil
Over low heat in a double boiler, put the coconut oil and cocoa butter in a bowl. When it has almost completely melted, remove from the heat and add the vitamin E oil and essential oil. Allow the mixture to cool until it solidifies. Lastly mix the body butter vigorously with a spatula, and then transfer it to a mason jar with a sealable lid. Date and label your product. If you don’t care for the lemon essential oil, use whatever smells best to you. This is your journey not mine I am only here to help guide you.

30 drops of lemon essential oil (optional)
I like to use an electric mixer, mixing all ingredients until stiff peaks are formed (approximately 2-3 minutes). Store in a mason jar with a sealable lid.
DIY Skin Smoother Detox Bath
2 cups Epsom salt
2 cups baking soda
2 cups sea salt
1 cup vinegar
¼ cup of organic coconut oil (this will melt in the hot bath)
Directions: combine the dry ingredients, store in a closed container. When you are ready to take a bath add 1 cup of dry ingredients, 1 cup of vinegar and ¼ cup of coconut oil. (Kids can use up to a 1/2 cup of the mixture). Bathe 3 times weekly, soaking for at least 12 minutes.
Tub & Tile Cleaner
1 /4 cup baking soda
1/4 cup lemon juice
Or 10 drops of lemon essential oil
3 Tablespoons Epsom salt
3 Tablespoons Sal Suds or Castile liquid soap
1/2 cup white vinegar
Pour the vinegar into the bottle, followed by the baking soda and Epsom salt. Shake the bottle to combine the ingredients. Add the Sal suds gently shaking the bottle to combine. Mix all ingredients in a bottle with a sealable lid.
Scrub and then rinse with water and wet clean rag.

I site all my sources but with a little bit of research anyone can find what they are looking for too. Unfortunately, webpages can easily be taken down as quickly as they pop up. Therefore, some of my sited sources are no longer good links. Therefore , my article doesn’t have a good leg at the moment to stand on but I will add more legible links when I get the time. I have no control over webpages being taken down or if they are no longer available and for that I do apologize. That is something completely out of my control. There will always be someone who will disagree with things you post, say or do. I will add more sources at the end of this comment but it won’t matter if someone is hell bent on disagreeing with you ( not saying you are at all ) or proving you are wrong then it is what it is.
The skin isn’t the impenetrable barrier as one might think and yes, that percentage can be changed depending on many different factors. The chemical burden on the body has other pathways such as being inhaled and ingested. These ingredients from those products also eventually make in our blood stream too. Your skin is not the only pathway but your question is about it taking 26 seconds for chemicals to enter into your body by your skin. Statistics say, “your skin absorbs 60% of what you put on it,” but that isn’t entirely true while others believe that our skin is the ultimate impenetrable barrier but that isn’t entirely true either.
Skin absorption rates vary greatly among different parts of the body; for example, the chemical absorption rate on your forehead and scalp is about four times greater than the absorption rate on your forearms.
I think, the answer lies all depending on the person. The 26 second entry way can vary depending on the person and the type of chemical used. Yes, our body’s largest organ does protect us from the daily onslaught and can stop certain chemicals from getting into our bodies at a higher and faster % rate than 26 seconds but one thing is absolutely clear: it is impossible to put an exact figure on this absorption rate because it all depends on the person, their health condition, their skin condition and of course and where it is placed. The skin barrier is dependent on many other factors too. The skin is not uniform ( meaning we are all different) in terms of thickness, epidermis to dermis ratio, density of hair follicles, and many other parameters that will affect the absorption %. The amount of material that may be absorbed will, as a consequence, vary depending on the anatomical site of the exposure like I mentioned prior. For example, exposure to highly permeable sites such as scrotal skin can result in uptake some 50 times greater than the same exposure applied to the thicker, less permeable skin of the legs and abdomen. Every person is different and every chemical is different. It is always good to question what you put on your skin but your body’s response will be for each individual. My advice to anyone? Question everything but always read your labels, understand what you’re putting on your skin and consider a gentler alternative if you want or need one. There’s nothing wrong with being cautious. If you don’t want to use certain ingredients, then cosmetic chemists need to look for alternatives. Ultimately, the customer is in charge.
It’s always great to question everything and figure out for yourself what you hold to be true. I personally, make my own skin products, read labels and am very aware of things because I do believe that the onslaught of these chemicals we put on our bodies is harming and damaging us in a great way. No matter if it takes 26 seconds or 3 days is still more than I care to take a chance on……. Good luck in your journey and I hope that I was able to answer your question..

Let’s not forget to mention the over use of antibiotics, antacids, aspirin, and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) which completely change the environment in our gut.
It’s not enough to be aware of all the outdoor chemicals that we are exposed to everyday but inside our homes we can have more power and control. We have to be more aware about using chemical cleaners, paints, glues, body lotions, toothpastes, underarm deodorants, hair products and pesticides. Instead start to begin to use products that don’t pollute our very own bodies.
