Perfume Free Shampoo

The skin is the largest single organ in the body and when people say that ‘we are what we eat’ they are partly right but in truth we are what we absorb and the sad truth is that we absorb many chemicals through our skin.

Even when we shower we absorb chemicals from the shower water – chlorine and anything else thats in the water. In truth the shower is probably one of the most harmful place in the home. Firstly we breath in the fine aerosol of chemicals created by the shower spray and then the warmth of the water opens up our skin pores to exacerbate the issue.

One scary though for today is that whenever we throw unused pharmaceutical drugs down the toilet (we recommend returning them to the Pharmacy) or just use pharmaceutical drugs they invariably end up in the sewer. Most people have never even thought about the way sewage treatment plants work but the sad truth is that these chemicals simply pass straight through. They then end up accumulating in the river water, sea water and ground water. Guess what we do them – yes you’ve got the picture – we then extract the water and feed it back into our water supplies. The water companies don’t test for chemicals generally or specifically and the reality si that the water we drink and wash in has all sorts of different chemicals in it and they all have the potential to harm.

If you want to read a good book about how to survive on a toxic planet the book by the same name authored by Dr Steve Nugent is a good place to start.

We like to think that we are not adding to the chemical polutants and by using perfume free Shampoo and hair conditioners that have reduced chemical profiles that we are also protecting ourselves when we shower and bathe.
