Your skin is your largest organ — and also the thinnest. Less than 1/10th of an inch separates your body from potential toxins. Worse yet, your skin is highly permeable. Just about anything you put on your skin will end up in your blood stream and will be distributed throughout your body.

Not sure if your personal products contain hormones and harmful chemicals? You don’t need a chemistry degree, just go to The Cosmetics Database, and enter your favorite product to find out.
