November is National Healthy Skin Month! The average adult has 22 square feet of skin covering the body, which should be cared for to ensure good health. As a precaution for skin protection, check product labels for parabens, phthalates and formaldehyde. Specific to body wash and soap, check for PEG, DEA, BHT or BHA which is an ingredient that requires a warning label on products sold in California.
When in doubt, check the label. The ingredient list might be surprising.
A healthy alternative to body wash or soap is all natural, plant-based soap. All-natural soaps use only products found in nature and do not contain artificial ingredients, additives, dyes or artificial fragrances. Great for cleansing the skin of environmental toxins and residue from personal care products, try an all natural, exfoliating, purifying bar from head to toe.
