Skin Care 101

Skin is your largest organ.

The benefit of choosing Kabana personal care products is confidence that you’ll have a longer, younger, healthier and happier life. The reasons are simple, easy to understand, and described in more detail below.

Although many of us think of our skin as external, outside, not part of our internal organs, it’s not separate from the rest of your body. Your skin is really an open gateway to every other part: your blood, your tissue, your organs, your nervous system, your reproductive tract, your brain.

Skin is only a good barrier to keep life-giving water inside and life-threatening bacteria and viruses outside.

Your skin does not prevent chemicals from entering and accumulating in your body. The petrochemicals present in most skin care products are a major concern.

A Pure Body

When we are young, our bodies are clean and pristine like a natural ecosystem that’s never been touched by humans.

As we grow up and age, the human impact increases; we’re exposed to foreign chemicals that our body doesn’t use as building blocks, and that accumulate inside us, that kill our enzymes and damage our DNA.

When we’re not careful about exposure, our bodies look more and more like the Gulf after the Macondo oilwell blowout – a petroleum-polluted ecosystem that will never be quite the same.

Sources of Chemical Exposure

Its common sense things we eat end up inside of us. The things we put on our skin also end up inside of us, but they’re even more dangerous than what we eat. Why?

First: Direct Absorption

Everything we eat that gets absorbed in our gut goes directly to our liver. The primary purpose of our liver is to filter out toxic chemicals present in our diet and excrete them back into our intestine for elimination. This prevents circulation throughout our bodies where they do the most damage.

Chemicals absorbed through your skin go directly into your blood and are instantly circulated throughout the rest of your body, organs, tissue, nervous system and reproductive tract. These chemicals now have the opportunity to stay in your blood for a much longer time. They often bioaccumulate and further harm your normal biological processes that keep you young and healthy.

Second: The Amount

How much and how often do you use the product? What about that moisturizer you keep on your desk or bedside? Your deodorant? Shampoo? Sunscreen? It’s easy to understand; the more you use a given product, the more you expose yourself to chemicals that have no business being inside your body. Because these chemicals are not a natural part of who you are, they negatively impact your normal biological functions that keep you young and healthy. Exposure to these chemicals over the duration of your life accelerates aging and disease. You’ll be better off without them.

The insidious element of petrochemical exposure in personal care products is that it doesn’t make you sick right away. It happens over time, decades of constant exposure due to the mineral oil in your ‘favorite’ body butter or moisturizer that gradually wears your body down and incrementally harms the processes of youth and health.

There’s no reason to take that risk because Kabana products are here for you.
