Here in the UK we spend much less on Body Care than we do on Face Care.  However, when you consider that the skin is the largest organ of the body, caring for the skin on the body is as important than your face.

In fact, because it is such a large area, it is even more important to choose natural and organic products, as it is being spread over a much larger area and therefore any chemical based products will enter your bloodstream at a greater rate.

This is an extract from Breast Cancer UK:

“In the UK, 1 in 5 cases of breast cancer is in women under the age of 50. Modern living has led to an explosion of synthetic chemicals being used which bombard our bodies on a daily basis.  Some of these chemicals are known as endocrine disrupting chemicals or for short EDCs, which can interfere with our hormones in a way that may increase our risk of breast cancer.

A recent study, led by researchers from the University of California, Berkeley, showed that it is possible to reduce our body burden of certain toxic chemicals  – in as little as three days, simply by avoiding products known to contain them.

Lynn Ladbrook, CEO of Breast Cancer UK explains ‘Breast cancer cases continue to rise, and many young women are being diagnosed with the disease.   Could it be that our modern lifestyles and growing exposures to environmental pollutants and synthetic chemicals from conception onwards are making us more vulnerable to diseases like breast cancer?”  “The ever expanding number of synthetic chemicals found in cosmetics and personal care products is a concern.  Some of these chemicals have been linked to adverse health effects including breast cancer.” – See more at: http://www.breastcanceruk.org.uk/our-campaigns/ditchthejunk/#sthash.UyADxsnH.dpuf
