Simple Scrubs to Make and Give

Here’s one good reason to start making your own body scrubs: chemicals. Commercial body scrubs are not only expensive, they’re also packed with toxic chemicals. Yes, even those labeled as “all natural”.

One highly toxic chemical found in many cosmetic products is called methylisothiazolinone. It causes chemical burns, skin irritation, nerve damage and even cancer.

Paraffinum liquidum is another common ingredient in body scrubs that you don’t want anything to do with. Then there are those nasty fragrances like methylene chloride, toluene, ethyl alcohol, and benzyl chloride among many others. These have been associated with reproductive problems, liver damage, and birth defects.
