Did you know?

Your skin absorbs more than 60 percent of everything it comes in contact with!

We absorb more chemicals and synthetic toxins through our skin and by inhaling fumes than through the food we eat. Unlike the food we eat, the cosmetic industry is NOT REGULATED. Many over-the-counter skin products contain harsh petrochemicals, paraben, preservatives, and artificial colors and fragrances.

Mother Earth Foods has adopted the highest standards for our personal care and beauty products, avoiding ingredients that are known to be detrimental to our bodies. The ingredients in everything we carry have been fully evaluated so you can be certain you are using a safe and clean personal care product.

What ingredients we avoid at Mother Earth – and why

Artificial ColorsUsually made from petroleum, acetone, or tar. Linked to ADD and neurotoxicity.
Artificial FragranceThe word “fragrance” may describe up to 200 ingredients, including phthalates, which are carcinogenic chemical plasticizers.
ParabensAct like estrogen and accumulate in the body without being broken down – of particular concern with estrogen-driven cancers such as breast and uterine.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
Sodium Laureth Sulfate
Not a recognized carcinogen, but is rapidly absorbed and retained in the eyes, brain, liver and heart, making cells more vulnerable to other toxic chemicals.
Propylene GlycolProven to inhibit skin cell growth in human testing. May potentially cause kidney and liver abnormalities.
DioxanesKnown to be a potent carcinogen and hormone disruptor.
PhthalatesLinked to decreased fertility in females and faulty reproductive development of male fetuses – may also be listed as “parfum.”
