Here is an amazing but true fact:

The average woman exposes her skin to around 168 chemicals every day when she uses synthetic skincare products and makeup as part of her regular skin care routine. Many of those chemicals are widely recognized as carcinogens and neurotoxins.

Knowing that, doesn’t it make sense to use a skin care routine that is based on clean, healthy ingredients that are just as effective?
