Label Read: Chemical Ingredient- Methylisthiazolinone

Methylisothiazolinone- (aka MIT) -there’s a reason they say if you cant pronounce the ingredient, its not good for you. This product is found in many products we use in our home. This works as a synthetic cosmetic preservative. This chemical is also a known neurotoxin, meaning it effects the nerve cells impairing their function and development and by over stimulation which could eventually lead to killing the nerve cell. In Europe, it has been heavily suggested to limit to use of this product to a maximum of 0.01% (per 100ppm), unlike in North America.  According to NCIB, chronic exposure to low levels of MIT can result in abnormal neurological function without causing increased mortality or bodily defects. Since you cant directly see the effects it only enables continued usage. Read the ingredients listing on your products! Any product that you use in and outside of your home. This product is found in (minus the brand names):

  • liquid dish soap! (constantly being absorbed by our hands and skin and ingest it with the utensils we clean it with)
  • no touch liquid hand soaps
  • furniture polish
  • glass and surface cleaner
  • scented pump spray
  • carpet cleaner
  • scented aerosol spray
  • laundry detergent
  • baby laundry detergent
  • fabric softener

Even the products that you don’t feel like you have to look over is worth looking over. Anything that comes in contact with you and your skin, including your clothes or something you even handle with gloves and protection but may still inhale is going to have an effect on your body. Read the labels and understand the ingredients!
