                Healthy Life

  

   The global situation with viral infections requires new knowledge and upgrade of your standards in personal care and daily activities to remain healthy.

    Many of our customers, colleagues and friends began to develop strange symptoms: skin allergies, eye irritations, etc.

    We have done our case studies and would like to share the results with you.

Problem 1

You may notice that

  • Your eyes became irritated and watery,
  • Your skin developed rash and became itchy,
  • Your scull became itchy and more hair fall out,
  • You feel allergy, sneezing, and itchy throat and may have difficulty to breathe, etc. 

Why?

The problem may occur during or after visiting public shopping areas, where a lot of antiseptics and sanitizers are used. Those chemicals get to your skin, eye, ears, and cloths and even in the food and drinks, if they are open and exposed to the air filled with antiseptics. Sometimes when visiting restaurants and food courts you may notice that you cannot smell the food’s savory aromas.

Advice:

When you come home, wash your face or take a shower, change your cloths.

Select for your skincare the most natural products with least chemicals, because they may interact with disinfectants which are intensively used now.

Reference information about used disinfectants:

Benzalkonium  chloride

While it is used in low concentration in a number of medicinal preparations as a preservative there is no data on its safety. Benzalkonium chloride is a human skin and severe eye irritant. It is a suspected respiratory toxicant, immunotoxicant, gastrointestinal toxicant and neurotoxicant. Therefore a lot of side effects are reported:

  • ocular toxicity and irritant properties
  • it can adversely affect ciliary motion, mucociliary clearance, nasal mucosal histology, human neutrophil function, and leukocyte response to local inflammation
  • drug-induced rhinitis
  • irritant and toxic to middle ear tissues
  • exposure to benzalkonium chloride has been linked to the development of asthma
  • Poisoning by benzalkonium chloride is recognized in the literature.

Chlorhexidine

Chlorhexidine is used as disinfectant.

CHG is ototoxic; if put into an ear canal which has a ruptured eardrum, it can lead to deafness

 Sodium hypochlorite bleach

Sodium hypochlorite the effects are stomach ache, a burning sensation, coughing, diarrhea, a sore throat and vomiting. Sodium hypochlorite on skin or eyes causes redness and pain. After prolonged exposure, the skin can become sensitive. Sodium hypochlorite is poisonous for water organisms.

Sodium hypochlorite is a corrosive substance, meaning that it will eat away at materials it contacts. Accidental sodium hypochlorite poisoning can be deadly. ... Skin contact with low levels of this chemical irritates the skin, but strong sodium hypochlorite solutions cause burning pain, redness, swelling and blisters.

Titanium dioxide that is used in cosmetic or food products can cause allergic reactions from mild to severe, esp. in case of interactions with chlorine elements as in disinfectants, heat conditions and more.
