Internal Balance’s Tamara Mariea says there are two toxic chemicals gaining notoriety because they are commonly used in personal care products. Added for their antiseptic qualities, triclocarban and triclosan are legal and unnecessary chemical compounds. According to Internal Balance, triclosan is an additive in the vast majority of liquid hand soaps on the market, and triclocarban is a common ingredient in bar soaps. Internal Balance’s Tamara Mariea, who had been poisoned by organophosphate pesticides in 2002 and became chemically sensitive, spent years reacting to these specific chemicals. They are molecularly similar to pesticides. Scientific findings have verified that these products should not be in use by humans because they disrupt the endocrine system and interfere with the body’s natural hormonal processes. In fact, the Natural Resources Defense Council is suing the Food and Drug Administration to ban both dangerous chemical additives from personal care products.
The negative effects of these toxins, says Internal Balance, has led to a legislative initiative called The Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010. This act is meant to ban many chemicals in consumer products and to address the poorly regulated industry of personal care products. Internal Balance reports that independent studies and the FDA all agree that these additives do not prevent the spread of disease better than regular soap and water. Nevertheless, companies continue to use these chemicals, says Internal Balance, for the sake of labeling their products antibacterial.
Adding triclocarban and triclosan to personal care products, suggests Internal Balance, can also contaminate municipal water supplies. Internal Balance says triclocarban is a compound that does not break down easily. Triclosan is even more dangerous, says Internal Balance, because it breaks down readily into dioxins, which are thoroughly researched and documented carcinogens. Tamara Mariea was inspired to open her Internal Balance clinic because of compelling personal experiences with environmental toxins such as triclosan and triclocarban and the growing body of research that exposes their negative effects on the human body.
