As you already know and so many of you are now reading the lists of ingredients in most of the products we buy, there are plenty of bad ingredients out there and we’re not just talking about processed sugar and refined wheat. Some ingredients are seriously dangerous and they should be avoided no matter what. Unfortunately lots of the cheaper products we find include the really bad stuff, so dollar store shampoo should not even be used on your pets. Below are a list of 10 chemicals, additives, poisons or whatever you want to call them that if you find them in the list of ingredients, DO NOT BUY!! A sale on Poison, is still Poison, if you read this remember you have been warned. Do your research and read more about these ingredients, they are really bad, yes REALLY BAD. Similar name ingredients are often just as bad, so if its name is slightly different it could still be bad. Putting chemicals on your skin or scalp can be worse than eating them, if applied directly to skin these ingredients can be absorbed straight into your bloodstream and go directly to your organs.
