Note from Enchantrix: Our bodies can absorb up to 60% of what we put onto them. When we wash our hair, the warm water makes it even easier for chemicals to enter the skin as the pores open, so it is important to use products that are safe. There has been lots of independent research done recently implicating the excessive exposure of toxic chemicals, often found in personal care products to the epidemic of disease in people of all ages.
Please Note: Sodium Benzoate is listed as a nasty in our pocket guide when used for food. But why then do we allow it in our cosmetics? The amount of sodium benzoate used in cosmetics is much smaller than in food as a preservative. Furthermore, the molecules are too large to be absorbed by the skin. This preservative has been allowed by Ecocert; the Soil Association and BDIH. It has been ranked by the EWG as having a low risk of 1. BUT there are reports circulating on the internet that warn against usage of the preservative even in cosmetics. We believe it is still one of the safer preservatives, but as always, we wanted you to be in the loop. The choice is yours to make.
