If you are a man, you need to check the products you are using too: Shaving cream, shower gel, shampoo, deodorant…..
This is from an article on The Campaign for safe cosmetics.
The average American man uses six personal care products a day containing more than 80 unique chemicals. Many of these chemicals are absorbed into the skin, inhaled or ingested, and the vast majority of cosmetic chemicals have not been assessed for safety.
Some of the chemicals used in men’s body-care products – from aftershaves and shaving creams to deodorants and shampoos – are linked to cancer, birth defects, learning disabilities and other chronic health problems. A common chemical found in most fragranced products may be particularly harmful to male reproductive health.
Diethyl phthalate (DEP): found in fragrance-containing products such as cologne, aftershave, shaving cream, shampoos and deodorants
Lead acetate: found in men’s hair and beard colorants
Coal tar: found in dandruff shampoos such as Neutrogena T-Gel Shampoo
Triclosan: found in antibacterial soaps and deodorants such as Old Spice Wide Stick Deodorant, Speed Stick deodorants, Dial anti-bacterial soaps and Edge Advanced Shaving Gel, Ultra Sensitive
Formaldehyde and 1,4-dioxane: found in many leading shampoos and body washes
I will look and find safe products that you can use.
