Is Your Skincare Toxic? A Most UN-Wanted List of Skin Care Ingredients

Has that pesky Benzine, Propylene Glycol,
and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate gotten under your skin?

After attending a recent seminar on environmental toxins I am left with a burning desire to throw out nearly all my household products. Give them credit for getting the message across eh? We had been slowly switching over to natural products in the let's use the bad stuff up first and then buy all natural organic products manner. Well, after that environmental toxins seminar there were a few products that had to go right away, but that still left us with a number of products that weren't "quite so bad."

And then the dilemma set in, how do we tell the bad skin care ingredients from the good? Aside from the "if you can't pronounce it toss it" style of product disposal what dangerous skin care ingredients warrant a toss in the trash and which one's just sound like they should be tossed out?

Kaia House Organic Antioxidant Moisterizer As chance would have it we discovered Kaia House an eco-friendly organic skincare company that consults the internationally recognized Environmental Working Group and their Cosmetics Safety Database to verify the safety of each ingredient in every single one of their products. And fortunately for us they've put together a nice little list called: Kaia's Most UN-wanted List which is an extensive list of synthetic chemicals found in everyday products that should be avoided. Bingo we have our list - and now so do you!
