:scratch I don’t think anyone has approached this subject in exactily the same way as I am about to do. The best diet in the world won’t help acne, other skin problems, and health problems if toxic material is in the food we eat or in the cosmetics we use to groom ourselves. Anything we put on our faces or use for grooming, like toothpaste, can harm us if there is something in the product that is toxic. With that in mind I gathered up a few web sites to post that have some information along this train of thought. I think some of you may have already heard of Linda Chae. I included her in these links.
Check out this web link on HEXACHLOROPHENE especially b section with the warning. This is why I have stopped using products that contain this chemical. Update posted 3/28/03
