Urgh, what a blooming minefield. Use this, don’t use that, this will mess with your hormones…! When desperately researching one of the many tangents associated with infertility I found myself down a beauty product ingredient list do’s and don’t’s rabbit hole. I had so many web browsers open whilst I googled what each ingredient did and whether there could be any potential impact on fertility that my head almost exploded. Anyway, I plodded on, creating my list, because I stressed about not doing so and because you know, anything controllable is niiiiiiice.
And so here we are… my beauty product ingredients glossary. I thought i’d share it here so you don’t need to bother with the zillion and one open web browser pages. I hope you find it useful. Remember, I’m no chemist and this glossary is a work in progress which I will update as I come across each ingredient.
If you would like to contribute or you spot anything that doesn’t look quite right, please send me a message, I would love to hear from you!
