Chemicals in beauty products could make you gain weight

July 11, 2011 by Works with Water

As if it isn’t hard enough to maintain a healthy weight by making sure we eat healthily and exercise regularly, it has now been reported that chemicals in beauty products could also  contribute to weight gain.

The Daily Mail reports that so-called ‘chemical calories’ could be lurking in everyday beauty products such as shampoo, body lotions and soap. This follows claims from doctors at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, who say that phthalates – chemical ingredients in 70 per cent of cosmetics as well as many household cleaning products – have been shown to throw the body’s natural weight control system, a delicate balance of hormones, off kilter. They suggest that exposure to phthalates through daily use may be linked to childhood obesity and weight problems in adults, says the Daily Mail.
