Surprising stat: Women who use cosmetics on a daily basis will on-average absorb almost 5 pounds of chemicals into their bodies each year!
Putting chemicals on your skin – your body’s largest organ, don’t forget! - is actually far worse than ingesting them “because when you eat something the enzymes in your saliva and stomach help break it down and flush it out of your body. When you put these chemicals on your skin, however, it is absorbed straight into your blood stream without filtering of any kind, so there’s no protection against the toxin.” – Dr. Joseph Mercola, osteopath.
Therefore, these chemicals (five pounds per year) are going directly to your other organs.
If this doesn’t sound like trouble than I don’t know what does.
