Skin is the largest eliminatory organ in the body. It is a two way membrane. Toxins are eliminated through the skin via perspiration and absorbed into the body via hair follicles and sebaceous glands. We have 65 hairs and 100 sebaceous glands in one square inch of our skin and if we put a chemical compound on our skin it will absorb it. Bearing in mind most scientists agree at least 80% of the 200 different types of cancer known today are related to toxins and carcinogens from synthetic and toxic chemicals you need to choose wisely and carefully.
