Gluten-Free Cosmetics Introduction
They say that by the time you leave home in the morning on the way to work, the school run, or to go out shopping etc., over 200 chemicals have been used on your body and hair.
Shampoo, deodorant, soaps, makeup and cosmetics, hair products, etc. – you have subjected yourself to a barrage of chemicals. In fact, you should probably put a hazardous chemicals sign around your neck!
Your skin is, of course, the biggest organ of your body. But, unfortunately, it is also porous, so it will suck up what is put on it.
Let’s break it down a little:
The skin on your face is several times more absorbent than your main body, which absorbs over 60% of what is put on it, and your underarms and your private parts (genitals) have an absorption rate of almost 100%. So – do you think it is wise to continually bombard your underarms (where your lymph nodes are) with toxic chemicals every single day?
By the way – fragrances are an absolute no-no. They get absorbed 100% too.
So what we use on our bodies ends up in our bodies. Therefore, it is essential to pay close attention to the ingredients in skin and hair care products. Suppose the products you use contain harmful ingredients such as harsh, toxic chemicals, colours, and fragrances. In that case, those ingredients make their way into your body, into your blood and into your lymphatic system. The majority of commercially made mass-produced body care products contain a toxic, damaging cocktail of carcinogenic chemicals, allergens, and irritants.
The thing to remember is this: If you can’t pronounce it, then don’t use it. Petroleum derivatives, preservatives, synthetic fragrances and dyes go by many names.
Some examples of mainstream chemical ingredients to steer well clear of are Cocoamidopropyl Betaine, Olefin Sulfonate, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Potassium Cocoyl Glutamate, Sulfates, Parabens, and Phenoxyethanol.
Take a good look as an example of a well known mainstream product that has been used for more years than I care to remember just see the extraordinary amount of synthetic ingredients it contains:
So now you know – do you still fancy smothering yourself with a product containing these and other harmful chemicals?
Furthermore, if you have an intolerance to gluten – guess what? A vast majority of cosmetics, skincare, body care and hair care products contain gluten. So whilst you might be oh so careful about what you are consuming, you possibly haven’t given a single thought about what you are bombarding your body with.
Take, for example, lipstick. If it contains gluten, you are allowing yourself to eat the lipstick by applying it to your lips. Now, that really isn’t a good idea, is it?
We don’t mean to come over as harsh, but we come across so many people with coeliac disease who say they are still suffering. When we question them, they unknowingly contaminate their bodies every day with gluten from the products they use. When they realise this and change to gluten-free skincare and cosmetic products – guess what?
To eliminate a lot of the toxic chemicals, nasty preservatives, and expensive, unnecessary fragrances that are harming our bodies, choose only certified gluten-free organic natural skincare products. It is so important to do this. When you read the labels of the products that you are putting into your body, you will be horrified.
By the way – don’t think that you need to become an earth mother in order to achieve chemical-free cleanliness and beauty. A phenomenal range of gluten-free cosmetics products, backed by Sir Alan Sugar himself, will ensure you look and smell absolutely beautiful.
So you can be saved!
By selecting only gluten-free, organic natural products for you, your partner, and your children, you are taking a huge, positive and immediate step toward a healthier lifestyle for you all. The developing organs of babies and young children are susceptible to chemicals, so it is imperative – dare I say absolutely vital to use safe products for your youngsters, and of course, on yourself.
Here’s another example to get you thinking:
Johnson and Johnson produce a product called No More Tears to wash your babies hair with. So why doesn’t the baby cry if the product gets in their eyes? It is the chemicals in the product that prevents this from happening. (In 2014, the company claimed that they had removed formaldehyde from their products, and it had reduced the levels of 1,4-dioxane.
Why on earth is it in the products in the first place? Don’t get me started…
That is why we promote a range of products for mums to use on their beautiful babies and toddlers – all gluten-free and chemical-free of course!
This is why we promote the Tropic Skin Care range of products through our Ecoslap distributorship. I ( Karen) am an independent Ambassador for the company because, quite honestly, no other products match this range- and as a trained Beauty Therapist, I have researched it.
