Personal Care Products and Hair Loss Treatment Sydney

Additional to our alkalizing article, I want to share where some of your exposure to toxins could be coming from. A great book ‘Dangerous Beauty’ by Peter Dingle (PhD), is part of my personal library and I refer back to it frequently, checking on the safety of personal care product ingredients. Get an overview on the book here

Many personal care products contain ingredients that are toxic or not safe. The list of ingredients that have concerns surrounding them is extensive and constantly growing. The ingredients listed here are some of the most commonly used toxic ones. To avoid these ingredients, I find the best option was to find a company like Modere who are committed to making safe, effective products avoiding all known toxic ingredients.

As you can see, there is a lot more to personal care products than meets the eye. Absolique Hair Health Clinic do not use or recommend hair growth products that contain harmful or toxic ingredients. We have researched extensively to be sure the products we use and recommend are safe and really are what they say they are but also importantly, do what that are designed to do.

The toxins found in personal care product can have a detrimental effect on your pH levels from the exposure today and in the past without even considering work and environmental exposure to harmful substances. At least we can take charge of our homes and gradually swap harmful products for ones that are safe for you and your family.
