This is the 2nd page of harmful ingredients in many everyday products

Just look at these harmful ingredients and what they could be doing to you

Lanolin A fatty substance extracted from wool, which is frequently found in cosmetics and lotions. Lanolin is a common skin sensitiser that can cause allergic reactions, such as skin rashes.

Lye A highly concentrated watery solution of sodium hydroxide. Lye is combined with animal fats to make bars of soap, which may corrode and dry out the skin.

Mineral Oil A derivative of crude oil (petroleum) that is used industrially as a cutting fluid and lubricating oil. Mineral oil forms an oily film over the skin to lock in moisture, toxins and wastes, but hinders normal skin respiration by keeping oxygen out.

Petrolatum A petroleum based grease that is used industrially as a grease component. Petrolatum exhibits many of the same potentially harmful properties as mineral oil.

Propylene Glycol A cosmetic form of mineral oil found in automotive brake and hydraulic fluid and industrial anti freeze. In skin and hair products, propylene glycol works as a humecent which is a product that retains the moisture content of skin or cosmetic products by preventing the escape of moisture or water. Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) warn users to avoid skin contact with propylene glycol as this strong skin irritant can cause liver abnormalities and kidney damage.

Sodium Laurel Sulphate (SLS) An ionic surfactant used in cosmetics and industrial chemicals as a cleansing agent. Used as a thickener and foaming agent in toothpastes, shampoos and cleansers, and as a wetting agent in garage floor cleaners., engine degreasers, and auto cleaning products. SLS is used around the world in clinical studies as a skin irritant. High levels o of skin penetration may occur at even low concentrations. Studies have shown SLS to have a degenerative effect on the cell membrane due to its protein denaturing properties. It can also maintain residual levels in major organs of the body from skin contact. Carcinogenic nitrates can form in the manufacturing of SLS or by its combination with other nitrogen bearing ingredients within a formulation, creating a nitrosating agent.

Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLES) SLES is the alcohol form (ethoxylated) of SLS. It has higher foaming qualities and is slightly less irritating, but may cause more drying May also cause potentially carcinogenic formulations of nitrates, or nitrosating agents, by reacting with other ingredients.

Talc A soft grey green material used in some personal hygiene and cosmetic products. Inhaling talc may be harmful as this substance is recognised as a potential carcinogen.
