You should be completely alarmed by the amount of endocrine-disrupting chemicals in a wide range of products that targets Black women. Chemicals that directly disrupt the body’s hormones. Black women go through puberty earlier than others, and have high risk of hormone-related problems, for example, pre-term birth, uterine fibroids and infertility. It is also observed that diseases such as breast cancer and endometrial cancer are becoming more common in Black women.
Chemicals in hair products, and beauty products in general, are mostly untested and largely unregulated.
Take control of your bod, and start by committing to at least 1 new non-toxic alternative a week.
