Are Your Beauty Products Making You Fat?

Are Your Beauty Products Making You Fat?

Really? Yes. What we put on our skin may be even more important than what we put in our mouths. The reason for this is pretty simple – toxins absorbed by our skin bypass the toxin filtration system provided by our liver.

Commonly called ‘chemical calories’ or 'obesegens’, these toxic chemicals create unhealthy hormonal imbalances that can cause you to gain weight regardless of diet and exercise! They are also linked to poor semen quality, increased belly fat, insulin resistance, poor gut health, and can even cost you IQ points. No joke.

And given the average adult uses 9 personal product each day - with 126 unique chemical ingredients - these micro exposures add up fast and get stored in our fat cells. Our ‘chemical calories’ also get exhausted by a host of other household and food obesegens such as pesticides, high fructose corn syrup, BPA, and antibiotics. We never liked those things anyway.

One HUGE contributor is fragrance, which is found in almost ALL personal care products, and heavily dosed-up in sunless tanners (not CLEANTAN though!). These daily use items include perfume, body lotion, face cream, makeup, sunscreen, shampoo, soap, body wash, skin toner, serums, exfoliating scrubs, deodorant and laundry products. Don’t even get me started on body sprays or air fresheners!

Here are the main take away’s:

- Almost all fragrance is made of 95% petrochemicals, 75% are phthalates

-Phthalates are Obesegens

-Fragrance/Obesegens are in just about every consumer product on the market, especially cosmetics & personal care

So how does CLEANTAN do it? No dangerous chemicals or fragrance? Well, that’s our secret… but let’s just say we spent years formulating a healthy self-tanner so you wouldn’t have to think about it ever again.
