People have to experience something firsthand to fully understand it. The Garlic Experiment shows you how quickly skincare products enter your bloodstream.
Did you know that what you put on your skin affects your entire body? In fact, I’ve read that approximately 60% of topical skincare products are absorbed through your skin and into your bloodstream.
Most people, including me, hear things like that and have a hard time really conceptualizing how much of an impact putting something on your skin could have.
That’s why I just had to share The Garlic Experiment with you. Doing this easy science experiment really drives home how absorbent our skin really is.
After doing this simple little test, so many people have resolved to replace all of their beauty and skincare products with non-toxic versions.
It’s a really great science experiment to do with kids. It’ll help them understand why you don’t want them coloring all over their skin!
How to Do The Garlic Experiment
- Garlic cloves
- Band-aids or tape
- Rub a fresh-cut clove of garlic on your wrist for 30-45 seconds, then place tape or a band-aid over the area then wait.
- Within 10 minutes you will taste the garlic in your mouth.
