Bodycare Basics

The skin is porous, and absorbs whatever we put on it. One study (1) showed that broad body surfaces absorbed 64% of the total contaminant dosage applied to them. The face, a more porous part of your body, is several times more permeable than broad body surfaces (2), and underarms and genitalia have been show to absorb chemicals at a rate of 100% (3)!  Let that sink in for a moment.
