What Are Xenoestrogens?

Many people have never heard of xenoestrogens before so we've broken it down for you. 'Xeno' means foreign, and 'Estrogen' simply describes a female hormone. When put together in one word, xenoestrogens are foreign manmade chemicals that act like estrogen and impact your body's hormonal balance in a detrimental way.
 
In other words they are manmade chemicals that mimic estrogen and negatively impact your hormone balance. They are a class of chemicals that have various names such as environmental estrogens, chemical hormone disruptors, endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs), endocrine disruptors, xenobiotics, obesogens etc.
 
Xenoestrogens are chemicals such as:
  • Parabens
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and its derivatives
  • Phthalates
  • Propylene Glycol
  • Triclosan
  • Fragrance
  • BPA
  • BPS
And many, many more... 
 

What's the Problem?

The problem with estrogen mimicking chemicals is that they are commonly used in personal body care and beauty products as well as household cleaners. When you're exposed to hormone disruptors through daily routines, these chemicals fool your body into believing xenoestrogens are your own estrogens which can cause a variety of different hormonal issues.
 
These may include:
The purpose of these chemical hormone disruptors in personal care products is to create lather, keep the body clean and fresh smelling, as well as make scents last longer. They are found in many natural skin care brands including organic baby products. In household cleaners they provide exceptional lather, cleaning power and long lasting aromas.
