Did you know that most store bought lotion brands are not as innocent as they look (even the “all natural” ones)? Most ingredients used in these lotions range from questionable to toxic and cancerous.
The most toxic ingredients in your lotion:
- Fragrance or “perfum” (code words for hormone-disrupting phthalates)
- Benzyl alcohol (can cause cancer)
- PEG-100 stearate (very carcinogenic as well)
So instead of buying toxic body lotions why not try making your own using only healthy ingredients. This particular lotion with myrrh and frankincense essential oils can regenerate cells, reverses signs of aging, helps with cellulite and stretch marks.
