Toxic Chemicals & Fat Storage

It wasn’t until I started body sculpting professionally in my 20’s that I learnt toxic chemicals in personal care products can hold up body fat loss & of course my ears pricked up “tell me more, tell me more!” I thought. Prior to being educated I used what was cheap, smelt nice or presents. (You can stop buying me perfume now everyone lol) Clean, hormone disruptor products are available HERE


Through BioSignature I was discovering more and more about the relationship between hormones, toxins & fat storage & as a result started to become quite disturbed. I felt a sense of urgency to get this information out there for when I personally switched brands, a lot of things started to change.


My moods were so much more stable around that time of the month & when I was getting ready for my body sculpting shows my legs started to drop fat around my gluteal fold which in previous shows I really struggled. Prior to removing hormone distruptors from my bathroom it did not matter how lean I got, it was near impossible to get that smooth dimply free appearance around the butt & thighs.


Toxic chemicals mess with your hormones. FACT


You only have to google the words “hormone disruptors” & hundreds of studies come up on this subject. I also have more info here on the subject.


Here is a good guide you can use. Go to your bathroom right now & see how many of your products contain the below…scary huh?



When I was a teenager I was the person who would mock others that chose the “hippy” lifestyle thinking “Why would you use a natural roll on deodorant when you can use the pretty coloured one?” (Which I now know is full of chemicals and sooo bad for hormone balance but was cleverly marketed to teenage girls). I thought “Not using my $80.00 bottle of perfume…no way I cannot part with that!”


But now being “hippy” is actually kinda trendy. The “Live Clean” movement is “cool” but not only that, this new trend I am now discovering is changing lives & saving lives! And I bet your bottom dollar it is here to stay!


Watch the below trailer to get an idea of how our society has changed & why we as responsible adults need to choose products wisely not just for ourselves but for our children & their children. As our world becomes more toxic so do our bodies. Toxic overload passes from generation to generation.



If after watching the trailer & looking at what you have in your bathroom has made you want to make the decision to switch I don’t blame you. The personal care Modere essentials collection I am a massive fan of as it cleans out toxins in your bathroom in one hit! Check it out here


Modere you can trust to be safe & do not use 3000 of the questionably unsafe chemicals. Their bottles are also BPA free which is another chemical used in cheap plastic bottles that messes with our hormones.


I have read the backs or “organic” shampoos and other similar “natural” products & have been quite surprised that they still contain some of the chemicals listed above…it is very misleading.


Companies legally can use these chemicals that are slowly making us more toxic and prone to disease so it is up to us consumers to make a stance and say NO I am not putting that cheap chemical on my body or in my mouth & I am not putting it on my kids either. It is also worth noting here chemicals absorb super fast when placed in the mouth or on the skin...think of the way nicotine patches work. Same deal with creams & hair products. 


It is my personal mission to get people educated in this area & live well. Join the “Live Clean” movement. You won’t look back & you will start getting results much easier too! Healthier & Leaner #winwin
