Toxins in the environment are linked to severe health problems and diseases, such as cancer, premature menses and altered brain chemistry. Minimizing the impact of environmental toxins for everyone, especially babies, should be a priority for skin care professionals and parents. When your client better understands the skin’s role in her baby’s health and immunity, she is empowered. Her choice to create a natural, toxin-free environment for the skin is one that actively supports her baby’s development and immune system. When, as a respected professional, you recommend against the widespread use of neurotoxins, xenohormones and other chemicals contained in many of the products targeted for the children’s skin care market, you leverage a powerful influence on creating a better future for all.
