Women are unknowingly exposing themselves to some 100 chemicals -- many of which have been found to be toxic or carcinogenic -- every morning and night when they cleanse and treat their body with potions supposedly designed to make them look better. Unfortunately, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Handbook, which is the "bible" of regulation and standards laid down in the US for the manufacture of body soap and washes, hand soap, hand creams, body lotions, body powder, deodorants and sun screen products are not required to register with the FDA.
Even if they were required to register their body care products with the FDA, it wouldn't make much of a difference because according to the FDA's handbook, almost any ingredient may be allowed in body care products and perfumes. That's bad news for you because while you think these products are creating healthier, more glowing skin, they are, in reality doing the opposite.
You can educate yourself about the ingredients in commercial bodycare products by reading these articles:
Also, we carry books that identify toxic ingredients (see below):

"I only got 4 products, hair shampoo, body wash, lemon toothpaste, and the deodorant and started using them the day I received them and my hair feels silky and soft after one use and my body isn't itching today which usually happens after showering the night before and the deodorant is still working after only one use so I'm excited! The toothpaste is wonderful and I like the idea that I don't have to call the poison center if I swallow some of it!" -- Melinda O., Arkansas, USA.
