Soaking up the Sun and Harmful Chlorine

Soaking up the Sun and Harmful Chlorine

This past weekend, I spent time with my family at the pool, and I started thinking about the effects of chlorine on your skin and hair. So I did some digging… Chlorine is an oxidizing agent, meaning it bonds with free-floating molecules in your pool in an effort to protect your skin from harmful bacteria in the water. While this is good, chlorine also strips natural oils off your skin while you swim.

The estimate of animals who are subjected to and die from this type of cruelty annually ranges from 25 to 100 million.  Many cosmetic companies test on animals, using inhumane treatment to determine the effectiveness and safety of their products. These animals are often burned, prodded, crippled, and poisoned. They live lives locked away in cages, unable to ever be free and in constant pain and loneliness. But there is...
