Question by Simplygreat: Herbal skin products entering the bloodstream?
Do herbal skin care product ingredients enter the bloodstream? I’m prone to irregular fast heart beats and they could be triggered by cold remedies and herbal supplements. But I want to use a herbal skin care product. Since it’s just on the skin, I’m hoping it’s okay. But the ingredients would still go inside my body through the skin, right?

What are the chances of stuff goin thru the skin causing systemic problems? Thanks.

You should see the doctor or a pharmacist might be able to assist you. I would imagine it would get into your system no matter how it was used. If you have reactions to that kind of stuff you should not use it without knowing first. Better safe than sorry.
