Talcum/Baby Powder & Ovarian Cancer

Over and over again I'm reminded that it takes only 26 seconds to get from your skin to your blood stream.  This has been a constant reminder from all types of sources.  

When you think of "Babies"  what "Brand Name" comes to you mind first . . . I think we're all thinking the same one.   Now I don't remember what my Mom used on me when I was a baby.  But I do know that with my  two youngest sisters,  my Mom always wanted "Corn Starch" based baby powder but back then it was not so easy to find.  

Now I learn that one of the products that I used regularly while growing was filled with Talcum powder,  not that I would have known at the time that Talcum was a filler with serious represcussions.     So much so that even now that "Brand Name" has changed their product because of it.

Women who were diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer after using Talcum/Baby Powder may be eligible for compensation. Check out  Talcum/Baby Powder & Ovarian Cancer to see if you qualify to submit a claim.

Are there Cancer Causing Chemicals in your hair care products?

Years ago,  I used to have thick wavy hair,  used to complain about how thick it was.  Now I wish that I could have that problem back.   I battled some illnesses where the prescriptions did a number on me weight gain and thinning hair.   The thinning hair continued long after the prescritpions stopped.  I would have to switch out shampoos every couple of hair washes.  At some point during this battle,  I decided that I was going to try and get rid of as many chemicals as possible that I was putting into and on my body.   Was doing pretty good,  except was still unable to find a shampoo.

I am at a loss as to why I dragged my feet,  I even spent major money on some of those we'll thichen your hair,  stop you from going bald,  but the complicated matters.  So I tried our Jordan Essentials shampoo and conditioner,  within  weeks I noticed that I no longer had to switch out shampoo and conditioners.  My hair was a little more managable.   Then when I went to my hairdresser to get a cut and highlight,  she was jumping around like a little kid,  "what are you doing your hair feels so healthy and YOU WAVE IS BACK!!!!

Yes my hair is still on the thin side,  but I feel human,  and it's all to getting rid of the chemicals.  

Then today this article showed up in my news feed,  and when I looked at how many on that list I actually used on my hair,  it makes me wonder how much thicker might hair might be if I had not put all those chemicals on it for so many years of my life.


The Center for Environmental Health (CEH) revealed independent testing finding a cancer-causing chemical in 98 shampoos, soaps and other personal care products sold by major national retailers. The chemical, cocamide diethanolamine (cocamide DEA), a chemically-modified form of coconut oil used as a thickener or foaming agent in many products, was listed by California as a known carcinogen last year.

Products tested with high levels of cocamide DEA include shampoos made by Colgate Palmolive, Colomer, Paul Mitchell and many others. In addition, products marketed for children and a product falsely labeled as organic were found with the chemical, in violation of California law.

CEH filed a California lawsuit Tuesday against four companies that sell products containing cocamide DEA, and the nonprofit has sent legal notices to more than 100 other companies that produce and/or sell cocamide DEA-tainted products that their products violate state law.
“Most people believe that products sold in major stores are tested for safety, but consumers need to know that they could be doused with a cancer-causing chemical every time they shower or shampoo,” said Michael Green, executive director of CEH. “We expect companies to take swift action to end this unnecessary risk to our children’s and families’ health.”

What you put on your skin matters

The founder of Jordan Essentials,  Nancy Bogart  shared:   "The task of scrutinizing every ingredient in the bevy of daily products the average consumer uses can be daunting. Start with the products that are having the most negative impact. The next thing you want to think about is the level of exposure you're getting from the products you're using. Different products mean different levels of exposure and concern. For instance, if you use a lotion all over your body and it soaks into your skin all day, you're getting a lot more exposure to those chemicals than if you were to use the same ingredients in a face cleanser that is quickly washed off. So be strategic -- try to get the best ingredients in products that you have a lot of exposure to (shampoo, lotion, sunscreen, etc." Huffington Ed Post    

Jordan Essentials, the trusted name in family skincare creates solutions that are made in the USA and non toxic!

Huffington Post:   You might have heard that sure, parabens and other chemicals in your skin care are bad if ingested, but they can't penetrate your skin so you don't have anything to worry about. The fact is, much of what we place on our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream. Just think about nicotine and birth control patches. We administer effective doses through the skin to our bloodstream, enabling us to forgo a daily oral pill in lieu of a patch that prevents pregnancy. Or a patch that keeps nicotine in our system without the side effects of smoking, allowing us to wean off of an addiction. While there may be some chemicals that are too large to enter our bloodstream, many are small enough to penetrate. In 2005, the Environmental Working Group published a combination of two studies that found toxic chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of newborn babies born in the U.S. in the fall of 2004. They screened for more than 400 chemicals, and an astounding 287 toxins were detected within the umbilical cord blood of these newborns. Of these 287 chemicals, 217 were neurotoxins, and 208 are known to damage growth development or cause birth defects. These toxins included mercury, polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polybrominated and polychlorinated dibenzodioxins and furans (PBCD/F and PBDD/F), perflorinated chemicals (PFCs), organochlorine pesticides like DDT and chlordane, polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), polychlorinated napthalenes (PCNs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and many others. These study results have been largely ignored by the media.  Rest of Article
