Our skin is our largest organ and it is important to keep it healthy. An adults skin on average weighs 2.2 kgs and is around 2 metres squared. Skin acts as a barrier to chemicals, harsh sun rays and it prevents harmful bacteria from entering our body. It keeps us warm when we're cold and cools us off when we’re hot.

Many people aren’t aware that a lot of what we put on our skin is absorbed into our blood stream. While there are some chemicals that are too large to enter our blood stream, some are small enough to penetrate through the skin. Once these chemicals enter the bloodstream they can disrupt normal hormonal function and have toxic effects throughout the body. Some experts believe that the chemicals that are absorbed through the skin are a lot more dangerous than the chemicals taken in by the mouth. When we eat food that contains toxins our body flushes them out of our system via the liver and kidneys where enzymes can break them down. Chemicals that are absorbed through the skin enter our blood stream and bypass the liver which means they aren’t broken down and flushed out fast enough. They can build up in our body and can be stored in our body fat and brain.
