Glossary - X


Xenoestogens are compounds found in both natural and synthetic products that mimic oestrogen activity within the body, potentially leading to hormone disruption and imbalance. Synthetic xenoestrogens are found in products such as cosmetics, plastics, cleaning products and fire retardants. It is worth trying to look for products that do not contain parabens, phthalates and PCBs (polychlorinated bisphenols).
