Let’s see, how many of the additives listed below in your cosmetics and personal care products can be toxic, that is, harmful and poisonous.
The additives listed on the toothpaste tube are listed as follows:
There is an input that may be of animal origin such as glycerine, it also contains harmful substances such as titanium dioxide, SLS and fluoride, and synthetic sweeteners and flavours in its content also have the risk of halality.
The additives listed in the jar of a hand cream are listed as follows:

Products are described as if everything is made from natural herbal extracts. Try it yourself, see how many of them are made up of additives with toxic properties. Also, do not forget that; This trial is just a small sample of the effects of the hundreds of synthetic chemicals you use in your daily practice.
As GIMDES, we call on the people to abandon these harmful habits. We strongly remind you that they should pay attention to additives such as glycerine, which can be of both animal and plant origin, and completely animal origin, such as gelatine, in organic products.
We recommend that you re-read our previously published “Attention to Cosmetics” articles.
