Men’s shampoo and men’s hair gel
Does your boyfriend, husband, partner use 6 hygiene items a day?
These “85” chemicals can contribute to:
Decreased sperm count
Poor quality of sperm
And so much more.
Yesterday I touched upon phthalates, today, let’s talk about formaldehyde releasors that are in many men’s products.
Formaldehyde can be added directly to products or more often, it is released from preservatives.
According to the EWG, the formaldehyde releasor chemicals to avoid are:
Bronopol (2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1,3-diol )
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classifies formaldehyde as a human carcinogen.(2)
In 2011, the National Toxicology Program, an interagency program of the Department of Health and Human Services, named formaldehyde as a known human carcinogen.(2)
With all of these chemicals, we can never avoid all of them. But we can chose to buy products that don’t contain them!
????????⭐️The great thing is, there are some great men’s products to buy online and at stores like Target and Walmart. It’s not a hard switch to make 🙂
