Medical Doctor, Nancy Lonsdorf, says †œas much as 60% of topical skin-care products are absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream, they should be consumed with the same prudence that we use to choose our breakfast cereal†.
We can no longer view the skin as an impermeable shield: what goes on goes in. Nicotine & medical patches have been designed to dose their active ingredients through your skin. It is a permeable barrier subject to the toxicity of the ingredients we bath it in.
Armed with this knowledge you can steer clear of harmful, irritating, hormone disrupting and cancer causing products. And the happy flip side is you can feed your skin from the outside in!
