these are chemicals that harm the body
- animal tested - not all phthalates are listed on labels - most products don't list this chemical - it causes sperm damage in men Neurotoxins: What is Elastin? a protein responsible for providing the vertebrate tissues with elasticity. The vertebrate tissues are subjected to repeated cycles of stretching and mechanical manipulation. these proteins are found on the dermis (middle layer of skin) of humans and animals. (usually cows or birds) Where is Elastin found? The uses of Elastin: -"anti-aging" skin products
-most lotions and mosturizers
- "wrinkle reducers" Does Elastin help the skin? -molecular size is too large so it can not penetrate the skin to provide any benefit
-if you take them out of a human or animal source, the proteins are dead and that means that they’re inactive or useless
-they just make the skin "feel" smoother and moisturized temporarily What do Dermatologist Say? they agree that most products that say to boost the levels of elastin are not necessarily true.
Other substitutes would be eating foods with zinc, typically found in meats, dairy products, and seafood.
Some brands of elastin moisturizer may also contain harmful chemicals and carcinogens
these products are not evaluated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or any another authoritative health agency Many elastin moisturizers often contain collagen. Collagen is another protein that gives skin it's strength. It's found in bones, cartilage, and ligaments. - are toxins that damage the brain Introducing the chemicals: Works Cited

What is it? -Is a thermoplastic polymer, made by the chemical industry.
-Used in a wide variety of applications, including packaging, textiles (e.g. ropes, thermal underwear and carpets), reusable containers of various types - May disrupt hormones - Are toxic to aquatic life in numerous studies - can accumulate in the food chain -Addition polymer made from the monomer propylene, it is rugged and unusually resistant to many chemical solvents, bases and acids. What is it used for? Why? Do perfume bottles contain good smells? Or do they contain chemicals that hurt you? Where can it be found in our daily life? -It is a part of both the average household and is in commercial and industrial applications. - Being a plastic you can find it in your containers and such. -found in lipstick, mascara, baby soap, eye shadow Polypropylene Possible carcinogen Polypropylene Possible carcinogen Links used: -Function is a solvent, penetration enhancer, conditions skin, and keeps products from melting Works Cited

Web. 19 Mar. 2013. <http://www.naturalingredient.org/syntheticfragrances.htm>. Harmful effects... Polypropylene is not harmful as a plastic It is know as a safe alternative for plastic. Polypropylene as a possible carcinogen is non toxic when consumed not harmful. but polypropylene glycol is a carcinogen meaning that it can cause cancer. Impact on Daily life... Polypropylene as a carcinogen affects other chemicals in our body when applied to the skin. health concerns are altering in skin, increase of chemicals in the blood stream, brain and nervous system effects, and endocrine disruption. Polypropylene impacts our daily life by letting us store our food and other things that need to be in a container. Research done... research that has been done was on animals to see if there was any mutation within the cells. Works Cited
