Face Wash is so important. AM I Right?

Men, women and teenagers alike use face wash on a daily basis.

🚨That means daily exposure to toxins using products that open our pores.

Yuck no thanks. 😵

My Amazon search this morning was a pretty big bummer but to be honest it’s what I expected.

👀 Look at all these ditches I came up with….

I was disgusted by the ingredients.

Some of them had way more than a few ingredients to avoid and to me it’s really sad. Really sad because most people just don’t know that these toxins have such a bad effect on their bodies. So hopefully the breakdown below will help.

Let’s look and know there are more on the market with other bad ingredients not listed.

❌Parabens –  A preservative that is linked to a variety of cancers… most prominently breast cancer. It has estrogen mimicking properties and wreaks havoc on our hormones.

❌Fragrance – (Unspecified/ Parfum). Artificial fragrances are usually to blame in cases of chemical sensitivity, allergic reactions, and rashes. Many of the thousands of chemicals hidden in “fragrance” are known carcinogens and endocrine disruptors.


A harsh chemical known to damage hair and irritate skin. Originally developed as a garage floor degreaser. Can cause inflamed skin, eyes, and lungs, and damage internal organs.

❌Cocamide Mea – An ethanolamine compound that can create nitrosamines linked to cancer

❌DMDM Hydantoin – This ingredient is a formaldehyde-releasing antimicrobial preserving agent. Formaldehyde is a recognized human carcinogen.

❌Phenoxyethanol – Neurotoxic concerns, damaging to dna and especially toxic to babies.

Often found in products that claim to be clean.

❌PEGs (Polyethylene Glycol) –  a group of ingredients with the prefix “PEG-” followed by a number. They are made by the process of ethoxylation in which carcinogenic ethylene oxide is reacted with other ingredients to make them less harsh on the skin. As a result of the ethoxylation process, 1,4-dioxane is created and can be left behind in the product.

❌Methylisothiazolinone – A known allergen that can cause skin irritation and may also cause damage to the central nervous system with prolonged exposure.

Don’t worry I am about to share my absolute favorite face washes. I personally alternate them but I’m especially fond of the charcoal and I noticed a difference in my skin within a week of using it.
