full of toxic chemicals could change your life.Removal of these 6 toxins is easy. Replace them with safer, more natural alternatives.

1. Phthalates

household cleaning products, air fresheners, Aerosoles and plastics. On product labels, phthalates are most often disguised and listed as ‘fragrances’.Why are Phthalates so harmful? Phthalates enter your body through inhalation and are considered to be an irritant to the upper respiratory tract causing; allergies, asthma and contact dermatitis. They are also known to cause birth defects in boys, low thyroid hormone production in men and women and are uniquely problematic to children due to their hand-to-mouth behaviors, floor play, affecting developing nervous and reproductive systems.

2. Triclosan

Where is Triclosan found? Hand soaps and dishwashing liquids and antibacterial laden products.

Why is Triclosan so harmful? Triclosan is known as an endocrine disruptor which can cause many severe chronic conditions such as autoimmune diseases, chronic fatigue and is also a suspected carcinogen. Products with added triclosan have been proven contributors to bacterial resistance in the same way that over-prescription of antibiotics has and is, therefore, an agent that promotes the growth of drug-resistant bacteria. Children exposed to high concentrations of Triclosan have an increased chance of developing allergies, asthma and eczema.

3. Perchloroethylene/PERC

Where is PERC found? Carpet and upholstery cleaners, spot stain removers and dry-cleaning liquids.

Why is Triclosan so harmful?: Perchloroethylene is considered a toxic air pollutant and is suspected to cause cancer or other serious health issues.
Inhalation of PERC causes dizziness and loss of coordination. Accumulation of
PERC in breast milk can be specifically problematic for newborn infants through
ingestion causing mild to severe gastric dysregulation.

4. Ammonia

Where is Ammonia found? Polishing agents, bathroom, floor, glass, carpet, metal, upholstery, and all-purpose cleaners.

6. Sodium Hydroxide

Where is Sodium Hypochlorite found? Oven cleaners and drain openers.

Why is Sodium Hypochlorite so harmful? When sodium hydroxide dissolves in water a great deal of heat is given off and it is that is heat is very damaging to human tissue, causing severe chemical burns.
