Have you checked what's in your soap?
We think we're getting clean and doing something beneficial when we bathe, but have you ever looked at what's in your soap? Many of the chemicals in commercial products are carcinogens, cause neurotoxicity, allergies, immunotoxicity, and even reproductive issues. Our skin is our biggest organ and toxins are easily absorbed so picking a "safer" option for soap is important. If you wonder how your soap stacks up, check out cosmeticdatabase.com. It lists many health and beauty products by level of toxicity (low, medium, high). If you want more natural soaps, check out companies like Dragonfly Soaps (review coming soon!).
