Endocrine disruptors in Your Beauty Routine: Exposing the Hidden Dangers of Personal Care Products

In the pursuit of beauty, many of us overlook the startling fact that our beloved personal care products may be hiding a surprising secret. Endocrine-disrupting chemicals, substances that can wreak havoc on our hormonal balance, are often lurking in the cosmetics and hair care items we use daily. Are you aware that endocrine disruptors are present in your beauty routine?

What’s even more concerning is that a recent study, published in The Journal of Exposure Science & Environmental Epidemiology, reveals that these chemicals, particularly in hair products marketed to women of color, can lead to a rise in estrogen levels, potentially contributing to health disparities.

I had the privilege of discussing this intricate subject on the Lesli Bitel show. In the video interview, I delved into the world of endocrine-disrupting chemicals, explaining what they are and how they impact our health.


Now, the good news is that you can take control of your beauty routine and make informed choices. To help you on this journey, I invite you to attend my Wellness Info Session where we will talk about valuable insights into:

👉 How the chemicals found in personal care products can affect liver function.

👉 The significant impact these chemicals can have on hormone levels, particularly estrogen, and their potential connection to diseases like breast cancer.

👉 Practical tips on how to research and choose safer personal care products.
