From coal tar in hair dyes to formaldehyde in nail polish, the average woman is exposed to as many as 175 chemicals from her personal care products each and every day that can cause health conditions as mild as skin irritation or as serious as cancer.
But it is not just the toxins in our beauty products that are cause for major apprehension; synthetic chemicals contained in our everyday household cleaning products are of equal concern.
According to studies of human exposure to air pollutants by the EPA, the indoor air quality of the average American home contains chemical contamination levels that may be “2 to 5 times – and occasionally more than 100 times” – higher than outdoor air. Poor indoor air quality has been ranked among the top five environmental risks to public health. This is especially concerning for women and small children.
