Parents of teenage girls – try to make sure the beauty products your daughter buys are chemical-free. A new study from UC Berkeley found that when girls switched to chemical-free products, after only three days, they had measurably lower levels of substances like phthalatesparabenstriclosan and oxybenzone.

Those chemicals are commonly found in hair productsfragrancessoaps and sunscreens. And there’s evidence linking those chemicals to hormone-disruptionbehavioral problemsobesity and cancer cell growth.
