Unaware of the link to mass destruction of their immune system, an unsuspecting generation has upped its antibiotic intake through over-use (orally), through use in skin cleansing products, and ingestion through meat and poultry.

PERSONAL CARE TOXINS : A PARTIAL LISTOf the more than 15,000 chemicals found in personal care products, 60% are considered toxic. Here is a list of the ones you will find most often, and why you should avoid using them. Of course, none of these are ever used in Healing-Scents.com Toxin-Free products.

The FDA allows these ingredients, which are by and large very inexpensive, to be used in small quantities. The problem is that most of them have cumulative effects–they add together as you continue to use them.

We are convinced they make a TOXIC SOUP, and hope you will learn to avoid every one of them.
