This week we’ve been looking at what is really in your skin care products, specifically looking at toxic ingredients containing oestrogen-mimicking molecules called xenoestrogen.
Xenoestrogens act as a hormone disruptor by sitting on oestrogen receptor sites in the body. This essentially creates an excess of oestrogen activity in relation to our other hormones, causing a hormonal imbalance.
In the modern day environment, we are constantly exposed to toxins. They are often hidden in unsuspecting skin care products such as deodorants, sunscreens, moisturisers and even lip balms - all the go-to items as summer approaches. Dry lips are common at any time of the year, particularly as the seasons become hot and dry.
Many skin care products, like lipsticks and lip balms, contain hidden toxic and chemical ingredients such as camphor which is a waxy substance and potentially toxic.
So, with summer around the corner, we have created a homemade 100% natural lip balm to moisturise and soothe your lips without any toxins exposing you to xenoestrogens.
Try our Cacoco Lip Balm recipe with these natural ingredients to keep your lips balmy:
Cacao butter providing a rich source of antioxidant protection to the skin.
Vanilla essential oil providing a good source B-vitamins playing an important role in maintaining healthy skin.
Coconut oil which is known for its antibacterial properties. This is due to the lauric-acid contained within the oil making.
