The toxins in these cosmetics are called ‘hormone disrupting chemicals’ and they can lower down your estrogen level. When they reduce your estrogen level, it directly affects the responsiveness of your ovaries and that impacts the quality of your eggs. So, doing make up and paying a price of fertility does not seem to be a wise decision, at least for women who have no child.
Not every cosmetic product, but there are many that have chemicals that can disrupt your hormone balance and fertility. Some of these chemicals are parabens, phthalates, nonylphenol ethoxylate, and nonoxynol. The Phthalates chemicals is used in nail polish and nail treatment products that has a very adverse affect on the female hormones and it can also cause ‘sperm DNA damage’. This particular chemical is also used in scented products.
So, to avoid any risk, you can use the ‘fragrance-free’ cosmetic products.
The, the Parabens chemicals are used as preservatives in products like shaving creams and deodorants. This element can disrupt the hormones. But, there are many brands that use this chemical with a ‘spf’ protection that reduces the risk.
