Personal Care Products- How safe are we?

Everyday we are exposed to a variety of chemicals in cosmetic products such as lotions, body wash, shampoo, and perfumes. The safety of these products have left many to ask, “How safe are we?” How many times do we pause to think about how some of our personal care products were made, or the ingredients used in manufacturing these products? As an old proverb says, “not everything that glitters is gold”. Not all the ingredients used in the manufacturing of our personal products are safe for our health.

Chemicals like Phthalate and formaldehyde are considered to be among the most hazardous contaminants to be produced but yet still, they are constantly used by manufacturing companies. Worst of all, most of these hazardous contaminants are also used in the manufacturing of children’s products.

Children are divine (Matthew 18:2-4), and yet most at risk. We are called to consider how we affect all of God’s creation, and in so doing; we have to purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God (2 Corinthians 7:1). Whether good or bad, our actions today will go a long way in affecting those who come after us.
