A new study, conducted by researchers at UC Berkeley and Clinica de Salud del Valle de Salinas, shows how taking a break from makeup, shampoos and lotions that contain chemicals can lead to a significant drop in levels of hormone-disrupting chemicals in the body.
Researchers provided personal care products that were free of chemicals such as phthalates, parabens, triclosan and oxybenzone to the 100 teen participants. These chemicals are widely used in personal care products, including cosmetics, fragrance, hair products, soaps and sunscreens, and have been shown in animal studies to interfere with the body’s endocrine system.
Associate director of the UC Berkeley Center for Environmental Research and Children’s Health, Kim Harley, directed the research. Harley said, “Teen girls may be at particular risk since it’s a time of rapid reproductive development, and research has suggested that they use more personal care products per day than the average adult woman.”
The researchers say there is growing evidence linking endocrine-disrupting chemicals to neurobehavioral problems, obesity and cancer cell growth, unfortunately cosmetics and personal care products are not well-regulated in the U.S.A., and that getting data about health effects from exposure, particularly long-term ones, is difficult.
