Your body’s largest organ is your skin and around 60% of what you apply to your skin can be absorbed. This rate is significantly increased for the underarms and genitalia. This may mean that with beneficial ingredients, your personal care products can serve your body beyond the surface. It also means that potentially harmful ingredients might be absorbed and make a negative impact on your health. Many care products contain ingredients which can be harmful to your skin and cause allergic reactions. For instance, most shampoos contain sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) which make products foam and lather. However, studies have shown SLS to be corrosive and irritating for the skin. Using body care products that contain natural and organic ingredients can help limit the amount of toxic chemicals your skin will absorb.
