Product description

Review

“Be hyper-aware of product ingredient lists and skeptical of the beauty industry. Dr. Skotnicki’s advice rings true to me! Beyond Soap is fabulous and important—read it and share.” GILLIAN DEACON, bestselling author of There’s Lead in Your Lipstick and host of CBC Radio Hear and Now
 
“Sandy Skotnicki’s masterpiece breathes oxygen into scientific concepts challenging assumptions and bringing characters to life in a fast-paced narrative explaining the dermato-social epidemic tipping point that has occurred surrounding the global issue of contact allergy. Dr. Skotnicki addresses the consequences, offering sage advice geared at simplicity and allowing nature to do the restoring.” DR. SHARON JACOB, Founder and CEO, Dermatitis Academy and President, American Contact Dermatitis Society
 
“If you’re like me, you have a collection of soaps, shampoos, creams and cosmetics all claiming to keep your skin clean, soft and young-looking. But, after reading Dr. Skotnicki’s fascinating exploration of the chemicals contained in these products and what they do to your skin and microbe, you may wish you saved your money. Skotnicki’s common sense approach to skin health is refreshing and her advice for healthy skin is easy to understand and adopt.” JASON TETRO, author of The Germ Code and The Germ Files
 
“Although cleanliness may be claimed by some to be next to Godliness, dermatologist Dr. Sandy Skotnicki thoroughly debunks this idea, and explains all the damage we do to our skin, and especially our skin microbes. We (and our skin microbes) did not evolve with regular bathing and all the beauty products we now use. This easy-to-read book provides compelling arguments that this really isn’t good for our skin, and suggests what we can do about it.” DR. B. BRETT FINLAY, co-author of Let Them Eat Dirt
 
“Our skin is one of our most vital organs, yet few books have highlighted with such clarity the impact of so called skincare regimes on its health. Dr. Skotnicki has created a compelling narrative that illuminates our understanding of our skin, and provides evidence-based alternatives to skin care.” PROFESSOR JACK A. GILBERT, University of Chicago and author of Dirt Is Good

“Intuitive, and science-backed.”Toronto Storeys

“Gives readers a clear plan — complete with product recommendations — on how to deal with sensitive skin.” Chatelaine
