The Truth About Skin Care
The average teenage girl uses 17 personal care products per day?
The average adult woman uses 12 personal care products per day?
The average adult male uses 7 personal care products per day?
Did you know?
WE ABSORB UP TO 5 POUNDS OF CHEMICAL TOXINS INTO OUR
BODIES PER YEAR!
“The chemicals in my products
are minimal and only applied to
my skin…it’s not like I am eating
them!”
According to Dr. Mercola: What
you put on your skin can be
more dangerous than what you
eat because there are not
stomach enzymes breaking
them down, rather they enter
the bloodstream direct.
Our skin is the
largest
transport
system to our
organs
 30% of what enters our body
comes from through our skin
 We absorb up to 60% of what
we put on our skin
 30% of what is supposed to
exit our body is supposed to
exit through our skin
 The cosmetics and personal care products (PCP’s) industry is a 35
billion dollar industry; so powerful it has managed to be
unregulated for decades.
What about
the FDA?
 There are: 10,500 chemicals in our PCP’s only 11% have been
tested for safety.
 There are over 200 ingredients in the PCP’s in the U.S. that have
been proven to be hazardous to health and are banned in the EU.
 Not one single product or ingredient has to be approved by the
FDA before it is released into the market.
Babies are
being born
pre-polluted
More thank 70% of PCP’s in
the U.S. contain Phthalates
that link directly to birth
defects and infertility.
Did you ever wonder why
our toddler girls are
developing breasts?
Or why more male babies
are being born with
descended testicles?
Or why more and more kids
are suffering from ADHD,
Autism and Allergies?
97% of
Americans
tested by the US
Centers for Disease
Control have Diethyl
Phthalate (DEP) in
their blood streams.
 Minimize the number of products you and your family use on your
skin and body
What you can
do?
 Beware of Green-washing and Pink-washing
 Read labels and avoid the Dirty Dozen chemicals in your PCP’s (a
list of those are listed in the following slides)
 Consider the Home Conversion Kit that eliminates all of the Dirty
Dozen most dangerous chemicals in most PCP’s
 Experiment with Do-It-Yourself recipes
 Share and tell your friends and family so they can take action
Minimize the
number of
products you
and your
family use
daily
 Less is More HEALTHY!
 The less products you use, the less exposure to untested and
possible dangerous chemicals you expose yourself and family to.
 Utilize the PCP Checklist provided by Mindful Minerals to reduce
your exposure up to 90% and save you money
Green
Washing
Pink
Washing
Green Washing is when companies use
words like “natural”, “organic”,
“ecofriendly”, and “hypoallergenic” to
depict a greener product. In reality,
those words are merely marketing terms
and have no legal meaning.
Pink Washing is when companies
offer proceeds from the sale of
products to support breast cancer
research, most commonly identified
by pink ribbons on the label. However
these products contain toxic
ingredients that can negatively affect
our health.
