Pregnancy is not only a time to pamper yourself, but a time to make sure you are only using the natural and safest products possible on your skin.
Take extra precaution to avoid body washes and soaps that contain Sodium Laureth Sulfate.
It’s a little known fact that soaps and shampoos contain sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) are exactly the same chemicals you’ll find in the dish soap you use to degrease your dirty dishes… In the same way as it dissolves the grease on fry pans, sodium lauryl sulfate also dissolves the good and natural oils on your skin and scalp, which can leave you with dry itchy skin.
People who frequently use products containing SLS or SLES can end up with chronic dry skin. While SLES doesn’t cause cancer like some rumors have stated, it still isn’t the best thing you can be putting on your skin. This is why many companies are now making sulfate-free products. Take for instance the recently introduced EverPure Sulfate-Free Color Care System from L’Oreal.

The truth of the matter is, 90% of shampoos and body washes contain these ingredients so you have to read your labels carefully!!!!!
