Most of us do not have any idea about the beauty products that we use. These products, even the herbal types, may contain harmful chemicals, such as toxic metals and the coloring agents, that create permanent damage to the skin and many important organs of the body. Chemicals cosmetics that we rinse off in the shower or at the end of the day get flushed down the drain can contaminate our water and aquatic ecosystems. These individually small doses add up and combine with other daily exposures to toxic substances in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat and the manufactured products we use at work and at home. Some cosmetic ingredients are persistent and can bio accumulate; exposure to these chemicals can increase as they build up in the environment.
