Did you know? In the US there are more than 80,000 industrial chemicals. YES. 80,000. It’s estimated that around 3,000 of these chemicals are in products that we come into contact with every day… it’s so hard to avoid them as they are present in clothing, carpets, toys, cleaning products and cosmetics. Are we safe from these chemicals? Worryingly, this chemical exposure has had a terrible effect on our health, and in particular, our children’s brain development. A study in 1993 suggested that these toxic chemicals specifically affected developing fetuses more so than children and adults. It's more important than ever for pregnant women to be aware of unintentional chemical exposure, as it may impact the health of their unborn baby. Unfortunately some toxic chemicals can interfere with the natural function of genes, proteins and other small molecules in the brain. This exposure contributes to the cause of neurodevelopmental disorders, such as autism, ADHD, cerebral palsy and dyslexia. What can we do? Switch to as many natural products as possible, Biosan is the perfect example of a vegan, all natural, cruelty free brand that achieves exactly what you want with no toxic chemicals at all.
