Do you know what the body’s largest organ is? We’ll give you a clue, you can see it on you right now. Yep, it’s your skin. It protects you every single day which is why you need to care for it.
Anything you put onto your skin is absorbed directly into your cells and can affect your health, sometimes it’s not immediate, but over time. If you are constantly using chemicals on your body it can cause damage. It’s so common to talk about how we should look after our face and our hair, but a lot of the time your body gets left behind.
Next time you’re in the shower, flip your bottle over and if you see any of these nasties on the ingredient list it’s time to say goodbye.
Sodium Laureth Sulfate aka SLES (a foaming agent that makes things fluffy)
A skin irritant that allows other chemicals to penetrate skin more deeply and enter your bloodstream.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate aka SLS (a different type of fluff maker)
The most common skin irritant causing dry skin, itchy skin (especially in winter months), as well as canker sores and eczema for those with more sensitive skin.
Propylene Glycol (because oil and water don’t mix, this ingredient forces them to love each other – no one wants that)
May cause skin or sense organ toxicity (eye irritation, skin irritation, skin drying, defatting)
Genetically modified organisms, not just in your food but in your skincare too. They’re just as bad for your skin. Remember whatever you put on your skin will get absorbed!
Parabens (used to prevent bacteria in products and increase their shelf life)
These chemicals is that scientific studies suggest that parabens can disrupt hormones in the body and harm fertility and reproductive organs, affect birth outcomes, and increase the risk of cancer.
The good news? Sundae doesn’t have any of these, so you can rest assured that while you’re singing your favourite song in the shower and nourishing your soul, you’re also nourishing your body.
