Your Health Problems May Be Caused
By Ingredients of Products You’re Using

Chemicals enter the blood stream through the skin as it absorbs the creams, potions and perfumes we apply. If the blood becomes too acidic, arteries can become inflamed and lead to secondary hypertension.

The acidity of the blood can take more calcium from the bones ultimately increasing the risk of osteoporosis, and other health problems. Free radical damage also results from chemicals entering the blood, which can lead to atherosclerosis.

When the accumulation of heavy metals reaches saturation point it can overwork and damage the liver and kidneys; organs whose roles play an important part in the control of blood pressure.

These toxic ingredients are also endocrine disruptors and have been associated with altering reproductive function in men and women, abnormal growth patterns, neurodevelopment delays and even an increased risk of breast cancer, Parkinson’s, heart and lung disease and much more.

You shouldn’t allow your beauty products to become a contributing factor to your health problems. Achieve Beauty is on a mission to expose these dangers and invites everyone who suffers from degenerative illnesses, or wants to prevent new ones, to allow Achieve Beauty help you stay safer by allowing us to check the ingredients of all the ingredients in the personal care products you’re using, or considering for Use. We Will inform you of known toxic ingredients they contain. A good rule of thumb is if you don’t know what it is you should proceed with caution and seek our information.

A Few Potential Health Problems Caused By Toxic Ingredients

 

Breast and Other Types of Cancer

The Environmental Working Group found the carcinogen 1,4-dioxane in 28% of all personal care products. The Organic Consumers Association (OCA) found the same chemical in more than 40% of products labeled “natural.” This includes shampoos, soaps, and body-firming and anti-aging lotions. You need us to review the products you are using because 1,4-dioxane isn’t normally listed on product labels. Some chemicals that may contain it include PEG, Polyethylene, Polyethylene glycol, Polyoxyethylene, Chemicals ending with – eth and –oxynol.

Type-2 Diabetes

Phthalates, are synthetic ingredients used by cosmetic manufacturers to help the product last longer. They can be absorbed directly through the skin or through inhalation. They have been proven to disrupt hormones, and also cause damage to the kidneys, liver, lungs and reproductive systems in animal testing.

A study from Uppsala University suggests that this ingredient is linked to type-2 diabetes. This study found, among 1,000 participants, that those with higher levels of phthalates in their blood were twice as likely to develop diabetes. This was found even after adjusting for obesity, smoking, blood lipids and exercise habits. They also found that certain phthalates were associated with disrupted levels of insulin production.

Hypertension

It is not just about wrong eating, drinking and lack of exercise that can contribute to high blood pressure, but it is also what we are exposed to through the air we breathe, and through skin absorption. The accumulation of heavy metals present in cosmetics, skincare and haircare products like mercury, lead, arsenic, cadmium, aluminum and a range of others, many hidden by the use of their synonym names, occur because the body cannot metabolize them. This toxic build-up soon leads to poisoning of systems and cause health problems like hypertension and many others. The World Health Organization (WHO), estimates that 82% of all chronic degenerative diseases are caused by environmental exposure to toxic metals.

Reduced Kidney, Lung and Brain Performance

Tests have shown that minor exposure to Cadmium targets blood vessels and heart tissue, as well as, the kidneys, lungs and brain, and results in heart disease, hypertension, liver damage, suppressed immune system and other problems. These tests have caused Canada to ban the use of it in all of their cosmetics, but it is still being used in America. As we see high blood pressure rising nationally, we may attempt to change our eating habits and lifestyle, but don’t neglect the hidden danger of harmful chemicals in cosmetics.
