What's Really in the Products You Use?

Posted Jul 21 2011 8:49pm
Have you ever wondered what's in the products that you use -- products for skin care, cosmetics, vitamins and even household cleaning products. 

Picture
The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services has created a Household Products Database where concerned consumers can check to see what harmful chemicals and toxins are actually in these products that we use each day. http://householdproducts.nlm.nih.gov/index.htm

You can see any  acute health effects, chronic health effects and health ratings  for each product listed and also search TOXNET. 

I used to have a problem with the cleaning products that I used; especially products with bleach. It gave me bad headaches. I have since started using natural cleaning products. I only use natural skin care and cosmetic products too, now and have been pleased with the results and knowing that I am not applying chemicals onto my skin. 

What kind of products do you use for household cleaning? Have you made the switch to all natural products? Does it even matter to you? 

I'd love to hear your thoughts. Have a great day!
