What is Going On in My Body?

In the last decade, new research has come to light that demonstrates that synthetic chemicals that are very different in structure to estrogen may act as an estrogen.  These are called Xeno-estrogens.  "Xeno" means foreign.  These chemicals can cause breast cancer, uterine cancer, cervical cancer, cervical dysplasia, fibrocystic breast disease, premenstrual syndrome, menstrual cramping, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, adenomyosis, premature sexual development and uterine fibromas.  Since the prostate and uterus are embyrologically the same, xenoestrogens may also cause benign prostatic hypertrophy and prostate cancer.

Find Skin Care Products without Xenoestrogens

The goal is to avoid these xenoestrogens that cause many female diseases.  These chemicals pretend to be estrogen.  What you put on your skin is of the utmost importance.  According to Dr. Eckhart of the Women's Therapeutic Institute, the skin absorbs the whole dose of whatever is put on it.  In contrast, an oral dose may be 90% filtered by the liver first.  Thus, whatever is put on the skin is 10 times the potency of what goes in the mouth.
 
Many ingredients used in skin care products are xeno-estrogens. In fact, it is difficult to find skin care products that do not contain any ingredients that are, in fact,  xeno-estrogens.
