Say No to Forever Chemicals: Protecting the Environment and Your Skin

In today’s world, the importance of what we put on our skin is paralleled by the impact those products have on our environment. Forever chemicals, or polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), are at the forefront of this dual concern. These synthetic chemicals are pervasive, persistent, and toxic, both to our health and to the planet.

BIODROGA's Commitment to a Healthier Planet and Body

At BIODROGA, we understand the dual importance of protecting both your health and the environment. This is why we have made a steadfast commitment to excluding forever chemicals from our skincare products. Our dedication to purity and safety means you can trust our products to be free from harmful substances.

What Are Forever Chemicals?

Forever chemicals, known scientifically as PFAS, are a group of synthetic chemicals used in a wide range of consumer products for their resistance to water, oil, and stains. Their name, "forever chemicals," is derived from their notable persistence; they don’t break down naturally in the environment or the human body. Over time, these chemicals can accumulate, leading to significant environmental pollution and health risks.

Environmental Impact of PFAS

The environmental ramifications of PFAS are profound. These chemicals have been detected in water supplies, soil, and even the air we breathe. Their resistance to natural degradation means they can remain in ecosystems for decades, if not longer. Wildlife and aquatic organisms are particularly vulnerable, as these chemicals can contaminate water sources and bioaccumulate in the food chain.

In water bodies, PFAS can lead to severe ecological disturbances. They have been found in rivers, lakes, and oceans, posing a threat to marine life and the broader aquatic ecosystem. Soil contamination is another major concern, affecting agricultural land and potentially entering the food supply.

Health Risks of PFAS

The accumulation of PFAS in the human body can lead to various health issues. These chemicals have been linked to hormonal disruptions, immune system harm, and even certain cancers. Continuous exposure, even at low levels, can pose significant long-term health risks, emphasizing the need for immediate action and safer alternatives.

Ethical Skincare: A New Paradigm

Honestly, I don't remember discussing ethical skincare at college. I was always an animal lover, having grown up on a farm, so perhaps I did question the skincare testing, but this was 1994, and although the topic had been around since the 1960s, it wasn't a central issue for brands or consumers.

Today, gratefully, this has changed; the end consumer is demanding that their skincare not contain ingredients tested on animals. This has been a brilliant campaign by organisations such as PETA.
