My name is Brissa and I am the owner of Dulce Soap Company.
Upon creating this company, I never knew I would be learning so much regarding toxic materials, ingredients, and marketing scams. Even today, I continue to learn different facets of the beauty industry and what their accommodations are to us, if any. What is toxic, you ask?
Let’s review together!
Let’s imagine that every morning you wake up and you head to the bathroom to start your morning routine consisting of: brushing your teeth, washing your face, priming your face for makeup, then finishing off with makeup. Let’s break down all of the things you may have put on yourself!
1) Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)
This ingredient hides in your toothpaste. It was originally used to clean floors (what?!) and is what typically causes the “foam.” This detergent can also cause canker sores.
Parabens are found in a lot! These include shampoo, face wash, soap, face cream, and others. Why “parabens” is a word to freak out about: they mimic estrogen in the body and disrupt hormonal balance! In other words, some days when you are irritable, or foggy-brained even, it could be because of the face wash you are using!
This is another scary group of a toxic family; these can cause birth defects and disrupt the endocrine system. They’re commonly found in cosmetics which helps them stick to our skin or face all day. Look for these in hair spray, deodorant, and cosmetics.
I understand that as women, we can’t control our future or our growing fertility issues. However, we can start learning about things we don’t have to buy. I encourage everyone to make the switch A.S.A.P. and start using more naturally-derived products. Dulce Soap Company
only sells products that are paraben, SLS, and phthalate-free. This makes it an easy transition for you to start using products and not have to “think” about what you’re putting on your skin. Remember, the skin is the largest organ, and it absorbs a crazy amount of products everyday! So be in control of your body, if you can, and make good, beautiful, and healthy choices!
Also, ask your local skincare vendors. Most of them are full of knowledge and can’t wait to educate you on toxic ingredients!
