Woah - that’s a lot to have to change! It is, but don’t worry - I’ve got you - and I’m going to help you detox your bathroom from the worst offenders. After all, striving for perfection is unrealistic. The goal is not to have you living in fear, but rather get rid of as much of the toxins in your bathroom as you can. Then know that because you are doing everything else to maintain your health, you’ll be just fine!
REPLACE YOUR TOOTHBRUSH AND TOOTHPASTE
If you haven’t done this yet, what are you waiting for?! Toxipaste is made with fluoride - a dangerous neurotoxin and endocrine disruptor. Additionally, many toxipastes contain triclosan, an antibacterial agent found in sanitizing products, and sodium lauryl sulfate, a chemical that can lead to inflammation and irritation of the upper respiratory system and gastrointestinal tract.
And then there is your plastic toothbrush - not only does it end up in landfills taking over 400 years to biodegrade - but plastic toothbrushes are bad for your health! Made of microplastics, your toothbrush contains phthalates which have been linked to diseases like asthma, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, breast cancer, obesity and type II diabetes, low IQ, and so much more.
We recommend using our Primal Life Dirty Mouth Toothpowder - which will help you clean and remineralize your teeth naturally - and our Bamboo Toothbrush. The good news is, you can get both inside our Dental Detox Kit! Complete with the Dirty Mouth Toothpowder, Bamboo Toothbrush, Gum Serum, Copper Tongue Scraper and even a pit detoxing natural deodorant - you can detox your mouth while you detox your bathroom!
INSTALL A SHOWER HEAD FILTER
Sounds a little extra, but in addition to heavy metals like mercury, magnesium, iron and copper, household water has been found to contain nearly as much chlorine as a public swimming pool.
Imagine dousing your entire body - your skin which is your body’s largest organ - with that every day.
GET RID OF THE WORST OFFENDING INGREDIENTS
Spend a weekend scanning the labels of products in your shower and medicine cabinet, tossing any products that contain:
- Sulfates (found in most shampoos and has been shown to leave residue in the heart, lungs and even the brain)
- Parabens (linked to breast cancer)
- Triclosan (a carcinogen, and has been linked to liver damage)
- Artificial fragrance and synthetic color (indicated by FD&C or D&C)
- Diethyl phthalate (found in perfumes and lotions and can cause liver tumors and affect unborn babies)
GET RID OF ARTIFICIAL AIR FRESHENERS
A study conducted by the Natural Resources Defense Council found that 86% of synthetic air fresheners, like Febreeze and Glade, contain dangerous hormone-disrupting phthalates and neuro- and- immunotoxins like BHT, acetaldehyde and propylene glycol, meaning that every time you spray them, you're breathing these harmful chemicals in.
