My Chemical Dependency

Just for giggles I thought I'd list all the chemicals/ingredients that I put on or in my body on a daily basis. These are the ones I could determine from packaging labels:

Sorbitol, water, hydrated silica, PEG-12, sodium lauryl sulfate, flavor (???), tetrasodium pyrophosphate, xanthum gum, sodium saccharin, cocamidopropyl betaine, methyl cellulose, FD&C red no. 40, pyrithione zinc, water (twice is good), sodium laureth sulfate (another two timer!), coco-betaine, dimethicone, cetyl alcohol, hydroxystearyl cetyl ether, sodium chloride, glycerin, fragrance, polyquaternium-10, carbomer, sodium methylparaben, DMDM hydantoin, cocamide MIPA, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, propylene glycol, phenoxyethanol, methylparaben, ethylparaben (that's methylparaben's sister to you and me), butylparaben (methyl and ethyl's better looking sister), isobutylparaben (methyl, ethyl and butyl's vain, ego centric sister), propylparaben (their quite proper great Aunt), water (again!), alcohol denat, cyclopentasiloxane, propylene glycol, dimethicone, trisiloxane, PEG/PPG-18/18, dimethicone, calcium chloride, fragrance (again with the fragrance!).

All that and all I did so far was brush my teeth, wash my hair and put on some deodarant. Scary isn't it?

I love me some phenoxyethanol. Don't even get me started.
