Chemicals in body products lead to early puberty in young girls
When I started making soap, I did it as a hobby. I quickly realized that I could make a difference in the products people use and put on their bodies. I researched what I could do to make my products safer for everybody. I sourced fragrances that were phthalate free (100% of my fragrances are phthalate free). What else could I do? When I started making lotion, I worked on sourcing a preservative that was Paraben free.
To this day, I am proud to say that Cypress Scents Products do not contain any of the three chemicals listed in this study.
The study looked at three major groups of chemicals:
Phthalates – used in products that list “fragrance” on the label
Parabens – used as preservatives in cosmetics
Phenols – antibacterial agents used in soaps, hand sanitizer and toothpaste such as triclosan
All three of these chemicals, widely found in personal care and household products, are known endocrine disruptors that interfere with sex hormones.
