I have many good books about Toxic chemicals in and our homes, work, and the products that we use. There are also many good and informative websites, all with lists of chemicals that may or may not be toxic. Some of the side effects reported are when an undiluted chemical is tested on a rabbit or rat, and then an adverse reaction is reported branding the chemical harmful. Most ingredients in soaps and personal products are in fact used in small quantities, and pose no risk to human health. An example would be pouring vinegar in to a rat’s eye, and when there are signs of irritation branding vinegar a toxic chemical.
Our products are free from the chemicals that are known to be harmful like SLS, Parabens and many more. We are constantly doing research to ensure that our products are safe.
Basically we need to to remember that it is virtually impossible to avoid all bad chemicals. We can however keep our exposure to a minimum. I have a very well written and authoritative book which states that the only containers suitable for drinking water is glass. The author maintains that not even stainless steel is good enough. Imaging sending your children to school with glass bottles, only to have them badly cut by the broken glass when the bottle breaks. The point is that we need to be realistic in our endeavors to protect our selves and our family.
