Is it true stuff you baith in, or rub on your skin is absorbed into your organs?

a science teacher once told me that you need to read what body shampoos/conditioners you use, and look up ingredients, because its absorbed into your body and organs in 15 minutes, and some things can be bad.

I use Burt's Bees Baby Shampoo and Wash for my hair and the rest of me--all natural, does a good job, and smells great, too! If you don't like scents, there is an unscented version.
Your skin, which is, in fact, the largest organ of your body, does indeed absorb what you put on it, to varying degrees. So to be on the safe side, keep your cosmetics and other personal-care products as simple and natural as possible.

To be sure, I should have put the info about the Burt's Bees stuff AFTER the stuff about skin; but it really isn't off-topic, it was more by way of being a suggestion for a safer product to use.

It is very true that stuff you bathe in or rub on your skin is normally absorbed in your organs. According to medical research, significant amounts of cosmetic ingredients penetrate the skin and ends up in your bloodstream. Many chemicals in those cosmetics don't cause the obvious signs of toxicity but slowly poisons us thorough their repeated use.

Well, if it's absorbed into your skin, by definition, it's absorbed into the largest organ of the body--your skin.
