Lavera US CEO delivers Health message to young women
Feb '08
Ulrike Jacob-Dewor, US CEO of leading organic health and beauty product company Lavera said that the message must be told to women that many beauty and skin care products are potentially harmful.

“The vast majority of products on the market contain substances that are known to have carcinogenic and estrogenic as well as toxic effects such as parabens, petroleum by-products, including phthalates, and sodium lauryl sulfate, to name the common ones.”

“Most women are still unaware of the dangers of synthetic skin care ingredients. This health message needs to be delivered strongly to young women, and especially African American women, before they have babies so that they and their fetuses have minimum exposure to environmental hazards from personal care products.”

Jacob-Dewor, who has an MSc in biochemistry, said, “If we educate women early and they end up using only organic and natural personal products, then they will inevitably have healthier children who will subsequently have healthier adulthoods.

Children have a much higher ratio of skin area to body volume, hence they absorb up to three times more chemicals through their skin than their parents.”

She said that synthetic sunscreens must be part of educational process as they are very often among the first skin care products children are exposed to and they are applied over large areas of the body.

“It's been known for about a decade that synthetic sunscreen substance accumulate in the body and can get into breast milk. Numerous studies have shown certain sunscreen chemicals act as endocrine disruptors – that is having estrogenic effects.”
