Week 3 - Part 3 - Let's Look At Benzoates

This section of the course is all about Benzoates. Never heard of them #dontstressit, let's check them out...

This harmful preservative isn't commonly known to consumers, however it can be found in hundreds of items.  Unfortunately, benzoates are not only limited to food/drinks, but this nasty little chemical is also added to cosmetics, shampoo and conditioner and, even toothpaste!

Please download your Fact Sheet on Benzoates and have a read.  We think you'll find it very informative (and maybe a little bit scary).

We know this information can be a bit overwhelming, so please remember to ask questions in the chat group, or send us an email (info@sistermixin.com).  We are there to help as much as we can.
