The combination of starting a family later, rather than earlier, and entering menopause earlier, rather than later, may inhibit a woman’s ability to have children.
A new study has revealed that your use of makeup can cause early menopause. If you use too much makeup or the wrong kinds of makeup, menopause can come early to you.
Many makeup products and personal care items, such as shampoo, body lotions, cleansers, perfume, nail polish, liquid soap, and hair spray, contain a group of chemicals known as phthalates.
The study was conducted by Dr Natalia Grinder of Washington University in St. Louis. She is an OB-GYN. The study involved examination of the level of phthalates in the urine of 5,700 women.
Your Use Of Makeup Can Cause Early Menopause
Here is an excerpt from an article about the study that is appearing on the Healthy Home Economist site.
With women choosing to start their families at later ages, new research which indicates that the simple use of makeup and other cosmetics could bring on menopause anywhere from 2.3 to perhaps as much as 15 years early is a grave cause for concern.
The analysis, conducted by a team of scientists led by Dr. Natalia Grindler of Washington University in St. Louis, involved examination of the level of phthalates in the urine of 5,700 women.
Phthalates are a common group of chemicals that have widespread use in makeup and other personal care items such as shampoo, body lotions. cleansers, perfume, nail polish, liquid soap, and hair spray.
Later in the article it says
Dr. Grindler said in her remarks at the American Society of Reproductive Medicine’s conference in San Diego, California that some women may be going through the change as early as their mid-thirties as a result of chemical overexposure.
“Early menopause has a lot of impact on your health. We absolutely think these chemicals have the potential to affect ovarian function and human reproduction.
“There’s a lot that we don’t know at this point, our research is still preliminary, but it’s enough to suggest it is having a detrimental impact in the long term.”
You would be wise to start reading the labels on the makeup that you use, to avoid makeup that contains phthalates, because the makeup you use can cause early menopause.
If you read the labels on your beauty products, you know that some companies are proudly capitalizing on this fear, boasting “zero phthalates” in their products.
Stop the use of makeup that uses phthalates, as the skin absorbs chemicals into the blood quite readily. According to the industry magazine In-Cosmetics, the average women who uses conventional makeup and other personal care products absorbs over 4 lbs of chemicals each and every year.
There is reason to suspect that phthalates may potentially also cause cancer, reproductive system abnormalities, diabetes, and obesity.
