Toxins in your body

2015 Research

Nail polishes frequently contain a plasticizer called Triphenyl phosphate (TPHP), and because the nails are porous and cover thin skin, this goes straight into the blood stream and can be found in the urine. Unlike oestrogen mimics such as Toluene (also found in nail polishes) TPHP is rarely found on the ingredients list.

TPHP breaks down in the body to a toxin, DPHP.

The research was conducted jointly by Duke University and the Environmental Working Group (EWG).

A second study, this time from the National University of La Planta, has found that 85 per cent of tampons in the USA contain Monsanto’s herbicide ingredient glyphosphate, known to disrupt natural bacterial populations. The herbicide is used on cotton crops.

It’s not hard to see how our bodies are exposed to ’chemicals of concern’. Read about a company that makes a huge range of toxin-free products.
