Organic and Wildcrafted Botanical Skin Care Products
If you can’t eat it don’t put it on your skin.
Human skin, the body’s largest organ, has the remarkable ability to absorb applied products either partially or completely into the bloodstream. In fact, about 60% of the products we use on our skin are absorbed and deposited into the circulatory system. An average woman absorbs about 30 pounds of these ingredients contained in just the moisturizers used over the course of a lifetime. Many of the preservatives and chemicals used in topical skin care products are potentially carcinogenic or hormone altering. More importantly the safety of which have never been tested to assess long-term health risks. Among the most concerning of ingredients are the parabens, titanium oxides, sodium lauryl sulphates, and petroleums. Parabens were recently shown in the Journal of Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology to have estrogenic activity that would have subsequent effects on the human endocrine system. This should be of obvious concern for women at risk for breast cancer. Another study done in the UK on the hormonal effects of parabens illustrated how the subcutaneous administration of butylparabens had a positive estrogenic response on uterine tissue. Imagine how much potential hormonal disruption occurs over a lifetime of just paraben consumption from all the different avenues (lotions, creams, cleansers, toners, shampoo, conditioners, oils, etc.). Another common ingredient is titanium dioxide, a chemical that is contained in many “natural” sunscreens, lotions and shampoos. This metal has been implicated as a potential problem in humans because of its ability to cause DNA damage in healthy human cells, meaning it can be potentially carcinogenic. This has been documented in numerous studies from various agencies around the world. Naturopathic physicians have a unique perspective in the growing field of aesthetic medicine. We do consider the whole body even when someone comes to us for aesthetic services.
