  4. 4. DID YOU KNOW??? <ul><li>Scientific research is discovering that many ingredients in personal care products may actually pose potentially serious long-term health threats when used over an extended period of time.

For example, if the skin transports nutrients to the bloodstream and personal care products contains harmful and even carcinogenic ingredients, then many of these chemicals and toxins are absorbed by the body through the skin.  If you continue to use these products for long term the toxins can build up in your liver, kidneys, and other vital organs, and tissues.   </li></ul>
