Phthalates, found in lotions, body creams, shampoos and nail polish, have been linked to disrupting your body’s hormones.
So why do companies still use them? Phthalates help fragrances linger on the body. Unfortunately, they mimic estrogen. Endocrine disruptors are detrimental in two ways:
1. First, they block our hormones from acting as they normally would, and
2. Secondly, they can act like hormones, triggering effects that may include the early onset of puberty. Often, phthalates are not listed as ingredients in beauty products; to avoid them, go fragrance-free.
What are some alternative solutions to still have fun with Beauty Cosmetics and not have to worry about unbalancing your hormones?
