The largest organ in the human body is - -the skin! Yes that’s right. Skin is considered an organ, it covers the body, and therefore is the largest organ. Skin is not just the largest, but also one of the most important organs of our body. It protects us from the elements, and microbes, regulates body temperature, removal of toxins, and Vitamin D production.
The fact is, much of what we place on our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream. Just think about nicotine and birth control patches. We administer effective doses through the skin to our bloodstream, enabling us to forgo a daily oral pill in lieu of a patch that prevents pregnancy. Or a patch that keeps nicotine in our system without the side effects of smoking, allowing us to wean off of an addiction. While there may be some chemicals that are too large to enter our bloodstream, many are small enough to penetrate.
Since we know without debate that some chemicals can and do enter your bloodstream through topical application, you’re better off doing your best to avoid all known harmful chemicals on the chance they are entering your bloodstream.
Many commercial products on the market today contain chemicals, Among the chief chemical suspects are parabens - preservatives widely used in skin and hair products, including soap, shampoo, deodorant and baby lotion. Capable of stopping bacterial growth, parabens are also thought to mimic the effects of the female sex hormone oestrogen, which is known to help tumors grow. This is but one instance of a preservative chemical found in health and beauty products on the market today. Do a search on the internet and you will find troves of information on this subject.
Did you know that the average woman getting herself ready for work on a typical day by applying a facial cleanser, moisturizer, make-up and lipstick today absorbs as much as 5 pounds of damaging chemicals a year??
