Do you know that chemicals found in most beauty products are not only harmful to your health but can also greatly disrupt your endocrine system throwing your hormones out of whack causing problems with your menstrual cycles. If you are struggling with infertility, trying to conceive, or pregnant you should consider looking at or switching your skin care and make up regimen. Here’s a list of some harmful chemicals that the FDA has not banned in the US. Many of these are known to cause cancer and yet they are still being used in our skin care and make up:

Benzalkonium chloride · BHA and BHT · Coal tar · Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) · Ethanolamines (MEA/DEA/TEA) · Formaldehyde · Hydroquinone · Methylisothiazolinone and methylchloroisothiazolinone · Oxybenzone · Parabens (methyl-, isobutyl-, propyl- and others) · Phthalates · Polyethyleneglycol(PEGcompounds)· RetinylpalmitateandRetinol(VitaminA)· SodiumlaurylsulfateandSodiumlaurethsulfate(SLSandSLES) ·
