The Hidden Dangers in Common Beauty Products
People use a lot of products to stay clean and attractive. Lotion, shampoo, deodorant, face cream, sunblock, and cosmetics are commonplace, but do we know what’s in them? Shampoos often contain sulfates and parabens which can be hormone disrupters. Lotions often contain propyleneglycol which is used to make anti-freeze. Chemicals in some sunscreens are linked to cancer in women.
