Women put how many chemicals in their body each day?!!!

January 03, 2023 3 min read

The Environmental Working Group Survey found that on average, American women put 168 chemicals on their bodies each day… The group found that chemicals from the products used, were ending up inside their bodies. These chemicals such as parabens and phthalates are hormone-altering which can have negative effects on the function of the human body.


So why add that burden to your body when non-toxic products are available that can save you money and that are better for the planet?

As women, if we put on average 168 chemicals on our bodies each day, that is a large number of products containing nasty chemicals. Although it may be difficult to avoid chemicals all together, for some products, there are natural alternative options out there that are non-toxic and still perform as well or if not better than toxic products. Many personal care products that contain these nasty chemicals, we use on a daily basis. Some examples include: toothpaste, period products, body and facial products which all have non-toxic and natural alternatives available in the market. To put it simply, you can reduce the number of chemicals you’re putting into your body by switching out the products you use with non-toxic options.  Don’t do it all at once as that can get expensive depending on how far you go. Try this, as you use one product up, try replacing it with a non-toxic alternative when it’s empty. These small daily changes will have a huge impact in lowering your exposure to toxic chemicals over time. Once you realize just how many chemicals we put into our bodies every day, there’s no going back!
