Almost every fashion and modern advertising insist on perfection. That perfection is not real, but made us photoshoping every wrinkle on our faces, our bodies, made us to hate our curly, frizzy, thin hair etc.

One brand that had a different campaign, including real women that accepted their natural beauty was Dove.
That’s why we would rather buy cosmetic products that say we are already beautiful, instead products that teach us how to become pretty.
The one thing we didn’t expect from the Dove products is the fact that they are loaded with toxic components.

The Dove brand started in 1957 when was produced “beauty bar” by the Lever Brothers.
Through all the years they promoted inner beauty.
In 1991, the company started to produce shampoos, body lotions, deodorants, cleansers, face and hand care.

In 2005, Dove founded the Dove Self-Esteem Fund to fight eating disorders. They released videos that showed the pressure, which girls have from the press, to have “perfect” bodies.
Nowadays, Dove is the leading cleansing brand with over $2.5 billion U.S. sales for a year, in over 80 countries.
Sadly, the researchers have found many toxic ingredients in Dove’s products.

To understand how dangerous these products are, we will provide you a detailed explanation:

Fragrance/Perfume is scientifically checked to increase the risk of skin sensitivities, is the leading cause of dermatitis and it irritates the skin.

Methylisothiazolinone – This chemical can lead to seizures and neurodegenerative disorders.

Sodium Tallowate –is a result from the fatty tissue of cattle, which many vegans don’t know it.

Sodium Laureth Sulfate – Over 16,000 studies have found that long-term exposure of SLS is related to:

• Irritation of the eyes and skin
• Developmental/reproductive toxicity
• Organ toxicity
• Neurotoxicity,ecotoxicology, endocrine disruption, and cellular changes
• Possible mutations and cancer

Tetrasodium Edta – is derived from formaldehyde, that is a carcinogen. It softens the protective skin barrier and opens the way for toxins to enter into the bloodstream.
