Hellotittie Tips: Dangerous Metals In Cosmetics
Have you ever done research about the ingredients inside your cosmetic products? Well, maybe you should. There has been an epidemic of heavy metals begin found in can a wide range of cosmetic products. For example, sunscreen, foundation, nail polish, whitening toothpaste, lipstick, and even foundation have all been found to have dangerous metals in them.
Just because a product is made for your skin does not mean it is necessarily 100% healthy for you. When you put these products with toxic metals on your skin, they’re absorbed into your bloodstream without any filtration. Over time these toxins bioaccumulate and can make you very sick. Some heavy metals include lead, arsenic, cadmium, aluminum, and mercury. They can cause organ damage and hormonal imbalances. Some have even been classified as possible or known human carcinogens by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. This is why it is crucial that we remain woke about what is going into our cosmetics products but also share our knowledge with others.
Heavy metals are naturally occurring elements that are disturbed in the environment with human activities like mining and manufacturing. They are a part of the Earth’s crust and as a result of industrial pollution, they are also in our water, soil, and air. However, when it comes to cosmetics, these metals are contaminants of the chemical process and others serve as colorants. This is some scary stuff but there are plenty of cosmetic companies that are woke and care about what they are using in their products.
