10 Essential Facts About Cosmetics to Protect Your Immunity

Taking the key steps to protect and build your immune system is as important as it gets when it comes to your health and longevity.

If epidemic diseases like cancer, diabetes, and heart disease left any doubt about that, the COVID-19 pandemic has silenced those doubts.


While people are largely aware that healthy diet, exercise, and sleep are key to their immune system…

…They’re far less aware that defending your body against toxins is also key.

And they’re still almost entirely UNAWARE that nowhere is the toxic assault on your immune system and its ability to defend against viruses and other pathogens more of a concern than in the cosmetics and personal care products people use on their skin day after day.

Yes, this concern goes for the “big brand” cosmetics.

And as you’ll see it certainly goes for so many of the smaller brands that call themselves “natural” and “organic,” too.


A Double Whammy Assault on Your Immune System

You see, your skin is an essential part of your immune system.

It’s your front-line defense against harmful viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens in the air and on surfaces you come into contact with.

And when you feed your skin toxic chemicals in these cosmetics, it’s a double whammy: you overwhelm your skin’s front-line defenses, and because the chemicals enter your body you compromise your overall immunity.

To state it bluntly, if you want a powerful immune system, you want to avoid feeding your skin and therefore your body products containing harmful chemicals.

That’s one of the reasons to seriously consider the USDA Certified Organic “Age-Defying Dream Cream” from Purity Woods if you’re interested in highly effective and safe anti-aging. 

However, BEFORE you head to the Age-Defying Dream Cream page to understand exactly why…

Here are 10 key facts on this topic you really need to know, especially right now with COVID-19 prompting people to protect and built their immunity.

10 Essential Facts About Cosmetics and Your Immunity and Health


  1. Personal care products can be made with any of 10,500 different chemical ingredients. This includes many known carcinogens1, such as BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole) and BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene) which are common preservatives in skin creams. This includes many known endocrine-disruptors, such as phthalates common in scented creams and body washes. Endocrine-disruptors can wreak havoc with your hormones. Your hormones influence many of your biological functions, of course, such as your metabolism, brain and behavior, and your immune system.
  2. The European Union has banned or restricted over 1300 chemicals in cosmetics. Meanwhile, the U.S. has banned or restricted just 9 for safety reasons.
  3. The cosmetics industry is the most un-regulated industry in the U.S.3 The last time the government tried to regulate the industry was 1938. The FDA relies on the industry to “self-regulate” in terms of the chemicals they put in their products. This means they can add anything to products that increases profitability, do zero testing, and sell it to you.
  4. Cosmetics are a $532 billion dollar industry.4  The lobbyists for this industry hold tremendous sway at state and federal levels and have shown they’ll fight tooth and nail for anything that reduces their profitability.5
  5. On average, women use 12 personal care products daily, exposing themselves to 168 different chemical ingredients each day. Men use 6, exposing themselves to 85 unique chemicals.6
  6. Your skin literally eats what you apply to it if the molecules are small enough. And the chemicals these companies put in their products small enough, because they are designed to penetrate your skin in order to function.7
  7. Unlike the food you put into your mouth, which goes through various “filters” such as your liver to remove toxins, the toxins your skin consumes have no such filter. They are consumed into the deeper layers of your skin, and many have molecules small enough to be consumed directly into your bloodstream and sent to the organs throughout your body.
  8. Cosmetic companies are aware they’re using certain toxic chemicals. They’re “reasoning” is that it is contained in such small amounts that it’s not going to hurt anyone. And if you rarely used these products, that might be true. However, people use these products day after day, year after year, so it’s more like “death by a thousand cuts.”
  9. Be very cautious of companies calling their own products “natural” or “organic.” Because the industry is largely un-regulated, they can say virtually anything, and “organic” could mean a single organic ingredient amidst a sea of synthetic and toxic ingredients.
  10. Look for products with the USDA Certified Organic seal or its equivalents, such as in other countries.8  This ensures — independent of the company and its manufacturers — that the product contains no synthetic and toxic ingredients.


One of the Most Important Changes You Can Make

The bottom line is, if you have a powerful immune system, your body is best primed to fight viruses like COVID-19 and other pathogens (and all disease).

The more compromised your immune system is, meanwhile, the harder it is for your body to win those fights.

As you now know, the widespread yet little-known problem of toxins in these cosmetics that people feed their skin day after day is a top cause of compromised immune systems.

And as making major positive changes go, moving away from toxic cosmetics and to USDA Certified Organic creams, serums, sanitizers, deodorants, soaps and cleansers, and other personal care products is a relatively easy shift to make.

If you are interested in anti-aging, the USDA Certified Organic Age-Defying Dream Cream is an excellent place to begin.

It provides you over 25 of nature’s highly effective and safe anti-aging ingredients — and NONE of the harmful stuff you don’t want harming your body and immune system.
