Cosmetic ingredients you should avoid
Personal care products like perfume, shampoos, deodorants, skin care products, and aftershave often contain hormone-disrupting chemicals that are linked to a high risk of hormonal imbalances.
It can put women at risk of miscarriage, infertility, vaginal and breast cancer, and early menopause. The risk may even be inherited by women whose mothers had a prolonged history of exposure to hormone-disrupting chemicals before and during pregnancy.
Bisphenol and polyvinyl chloride are commonly found hormone-disrupting chemicals in products like plastic drinking bottles, perfumes, cosmetics, food packaging (including tin cans), non-stick cookware, cleaning products, dental sealants, water-resistant clothing, floor polishes, flame retardants in furnishings, and building materials like water pipes.
Exposure to these compounds is also linked to an increase in the risk of childhood obesity, cancers, metabolic diseases like diabetes, neurobehavioural disorders, and reproductive health risks.
