Remove Toxins From Your Routine

Remove Toxins From Your Routine

Posted by Dawn Kurtze, Brazen Bee on Mar 26th 2021

We are in the midst of a toxin crisis! They're hiding in our every day products. Hope is not lost! Find the facts to make informed choices. 

We're using so many things with ingredients that ultimately cause infertility and cancer. We have been lulled by fantastic advertising from big companies we see on the shelf at our supermarkets. We want to trust them. But should we?

Here are some things hiding in common items to keep on your radar:

  • SHAMPOO - Formaldehyde, endocrine disruptors. Allergies, depression, cancer
  • LIPSTICK - Lead, coal tar. Kidney damage, miscarriage, neurological damage
  • DEODORANT - Endocrine disruptors, formaldehyde. Hormone disruption, reproductive problems, tumors
  • SKIN CREAM - Mercury, coal tar, endocrine disruptors. Tremors, insomnia, cognitive dysfunction
  • NAIL PRODUCTS - Toluene, acetone. Dermatitis, lung disorders, miscarriage
  • TOOTHPASTE - Triclosan, arsenic. Abnormal cell growth, reproductive toxicity
  • SOAP - Endocrine disruptors, coal tar, 1,4-dioxane. Allergies, infertility, heart disease
  • FRAGRANCE (UN-NAMED MYSTERY CHEMICALS) - Toxic chemicals not disclosed. Allergies, reproductive disorders, cancer

So what now? Remove toxins from your bathroom! 

Brazen Bee is a small women owned business located in Manitou Springs, Colorado. We handcraft all natural skincare, hair, beard and body products. Our focus is customized whole-plant, chemical-free formulations. 

Because we are completely chemical free, many of our products do not have water in their formulations. Once water is introduced other preservatives and stabilizers must also be used. Our moisturizers and body/hair butters are water free concentrates. This also means a little goes a long way so they last and last.

We refuse to use toxins or other chemical preservatives in our products. Period. Check out these third party sites that have meaningful information to quench your thirst for knowledge. 

  • The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics coalition, a project of Breast Cancer Prevention Partners (formerly the Breast Cancer Fund), works to protect the health of consumers, workers and the environment through public education and engagement, corporate accountability and sustainability campaigns and legislative advocacy designed to eliminate dangerous chemicals linked to adverse health impacts from cosmetics and personal care products. The Campaign has educated millions of people about the problem of toxic chemicals in cosmetics, which has led to an increased demand for safer products in the marketplace. Now hundreds of cosmetic companies fully disclose ingredients and avoid the use of cancer-causing chemicals, reproductive toxicants and other unsafe chemicals, demonstrating these practices are not only possible, but profitable.
  • The environmental injustice of beauty: framing chemical exposures from beauty products as a health disparities concern. Article by AJOG (American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology. The obstetrics-gynecology community has issued a call to action to prevent toxic environmental chemical exposures and their threats to healthy human reproduction.
