Have you heard about the Toxic 12? Sadly, carcinogens and harmful toxins are probably hiding in your favorite body wash. Even in the Clean, Aluminum Free, and Sensitive Skin formulations, you'll often find them in the ingredients list.
Here are the Toxic 12 Ingredients to look for on your skin care product labels. These ingredients are banned in many countries, but are very commonly found in products on shelves here in the United States. Moisturizers, lathering agents, dyes, alcohols and chemicals that cause cancer, nervous system and hormone ailments, skin allergies, irritation or dermatitis are all on this list.
