"Would you... Wash your hair and brush your teeth with brake fluid, engine degreaser or anti-freeze?


Well you probably are and don't know it."


Every day you probably dowse yourself with the same harmful, corrosive ingredients found in brake fluid, degreasers and anti-freeze.  Many soaps, shampoos, bubble  bath, cosmetics, and toothpastes are loaded with such chemicals. Unfortunately, the FDA has very few regulations to protect consumers from the ingredients used by the cosmetic and personal care industries.  

The FDA has no right to approve ingredients, or require companies to do safety testing of their products, prior to their release into the marketplace.  Therefore, over 800 chemicals available for use in cosmetics have been reported to the government as toxic substances. 

The name of one of these chemicals is Propylene Glycol.  Propylene Glycol is a colorless viscous hygroscopic liquid CH3CH(OH)CH2OH, used in anti-freeze solutions, brake and hydraulic fluids, paints and coatings, floor waxes, laundry detergents, solvents, cosmetics, toothpastes, shampoos, deodorants and lotions.  

The reason it is used in personal care products is because Propylene Glycol serves as a Humectant, which is a substance that helps retain moisture.  It therefore makes the skin feel moist and soft and the products do not dry out.  The Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for Propylene Glycol state that this chemical is implicated in contact dermatitis, kidney damage and liver abnormalities. 

It can inhibit cell growth in human tests and can damage cell membranes causing rashes, dry skin and surface damage.  The acute effects of exposure to Propylene Glycol as listed on the MSDS states that it may be harmful by inhalation, ingestion or skin absorbtion.  

Exposure may also cause eye irritation, skin irritiation, gastro-intestinal disturbances, nausea, headache and vomiting, and Central Nervous System depression.  The name of another one of these chemicals is Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS).  SLS is a harsh (caustic) detergent.  It is used as a surfactant, which breaks down the surface tension of water. 

The uses of SLS include concrete floor cleaners, engine degreasers, car wash detergents, and personal care products including probably every major brand of toothpaste you can find.  SLS is also a mutagen.  Which means that it is capable of changing the genetic material found in the cells. 

 It is routinely used in clinical studies as the control skin irritant.  It enters and maintains residual levels in the heart, liver, lungs and brain from skin contact. It denatures proteins and impairs the proper structural formation of young eyes causing permanent damage.   SLS can also damage the immune system.  Along with separation of skin layers and inflammation to the skin. Yet this chemical is probably applied to your skin every single day.

Flouride Causes Cancer

As you know, many medications are now administered through patches on the skin or by placing drops under the tongue.  Do you feel that it would be healthy to have chemicals such as Propylene Glycol and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate making contact with your body multiple times a day.  Well it has been shown in most cases to be extremely dangerous to your health.  

In fact, studies have shown that washing your hair one time with a shampoo containing Sodium Lauryl Sulfate could put as many nitrates into your bloodstream as eating a whole pound of bacon.  And that is just ONE application. 

The reason that these chemicals are being used in your personal care products is that they are extremely cheap to use and they have the illusion of being very effective. In most cases the cap on the bottle costs more that the ingredients inside.  

However, over 12 years ago an industrial chemist named Tom Mower became suspicious about dangerous chemicals being used in personal care products when a large cosmetic company contacted him about purchasing Propylene Glycol.  He could not figure out why a cosmetic company would want industrial antifreeze for their products.  

By looking into the matter, Tom found that not only do most personal care companies use Propylene Glycol in their products but they use many other potential carcinogens as well.  Since that time Tom Mower has been on a crusade to warn people about these dreadful ingredients.   

Tom Mower has designed a line of personal care products that are free of all carcinogens. These products utilize the most advanced research that science has to offer. He uses pharmaceutical grade plant extracts and high quality compounds that when combined together treat your skin like the living, breathing organism that it is. 

This morning if you brushed your teeth, used deodorant, shampooed and conditioned your hair, used gels or hairsprays, used mouthwash, shaved or used soaps and cleansers, used talc or deusched you may have absorbed up to 5 chemical compounds that are known carcinogens.  


If dousing your body everyday with carcinogens does not appeal to you and you  would like to find personal care products that do not contain these dangerous chemicals then I have a solution for you.
