In the drugstore, when you’re in a hurry to pick up a bar of soap, you may throw it into your cart without looking at the ingredients. What you might not know is that some of the products you buy can have negative effects on you or your family’s health. The truth of the matter is that store shelves are lined with shampoos, moisturizers, deodorants and soaps that contain ingredients that could be harmful to your health.
Take soaps, for instance. There are many ingredients used in the production of soap that don’t simply moisturize and make your skin feel clean and refreshed, they also poison the skin with unnecessary artificial additives. Let’s start with synthetic scents. Some soaps contain fragrances created with harmful chemicals that can lead to dry skin and irritation. A common ingredient found in many soaps is Triclosan. Triclosan is an aromatic compound with antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties that can potentially aggravate the skin. But perhaps the most dangerous ingredient added to some household soaps is Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, a chemical used to increase lather quality. Studies show that concentrations of SLS as low as 0.5% can cause irritations. Some soaps can have concentrations as high as 30%!
