What It’s About
Chemical-Free Skin Health® is a book written by Bob Root that is a compilation of all his experiences being on the road with Keys customers. Bob features information about the Human Microbiome Project and the National Institutes of Health, a spin-off of the human genome project. The book answers the most commonly asked questions and proposes some radical ideas about skin health.
Of all the points Bob makes in the book, the one that drives his continued passion is his deep concern that the chemical bactericides used as a preservative in most skin care and household products are destroying the natural Ecosystem on our skin. Parabens and Triclosan are used as preservatives, and antibacterial agents are undiscriminating killers of the probiotics on our skin. This subject is so important to Bob that he made it the focal point of his book tour. Because of this book and the constant talking, Bob was a part of having Triclosan banned by the FDA in any form. This chapter alone is worth the books $19.95 price.
Below is the press briefing announcement Chemical-Free Skin Health® and a pointed lesson from the book.
Are We Killing Our Skin’s Ecosystem?
Are Everyday Products Destroying The Probiotics of our Skin?
The National Institutes of Health, The National Cancer Institute, and The Human Microbiome Project. These institutions are about 60 miles away from a guy named Jake. Jake’s microbiome on his skin is dead.
Jake was a 14-year-old boy who struggled with acute Eczema. Since just after birth, Jake has been covered with red rashes inside his elbows, behind his knees, and the back of his neck. He travels nearly 60 miles to the National Institutes of Health after waiting 24 hours each trip without bathing, without medication, and without his eczema treatment so that doctors can painfully scrape his rashes to try and determine what is causing his lifelong struggle with this disease that attacks millions of people. Jake endures this agony so that he might find relief and help others like him by enabling scientists and doctors to understand what causes Eczema.
Bob Root is Keys founder and lead scientist. He is not a chemist! He is a former high-tech CEO from Silicon Valley specializing in micromachines found in computer hard disks and optical storage devices. Some say that he is one of the founding fathers of the data storage industry as we know it today. He claims that he is curious and always starts a project by understanding the problem first. Conventional thinking is not his way. This is called First Principle Thinking.
A feature article in Popular Science Magazine inspired Bob to intervene on Jake’s behalf, offering a contrarian position of why Jake may be suffering.
The Human Microbiome Project, funded by the National Institutes of Health and Congress, connects the probiotic bacteria that live on our skin with disorders like that afflicts Jake. Bob talked about this interaction long before the project began because he experienced hundreds of others like Jake when he developed chemical-free skin health products for Keys.
Bob has proposed to the writers of the article and the Human Microbiome Project that the cumulative use of skincare, household products like detergents, and even prescription products containing bactericide preservatives are probably the cause of Jake’s affliction.
Bob’s book Chemical-Free Skin Health®, he dedicated a chapter explaining that 95%+ of all the products that come into contact with our skin contain chemicals like parabens and Triclosan, which are designed to kill harmful bacteria in products to preserve then are killing the probiotic bacteria on our skin. This destruction of the flora of what makes up the Ecosystem of our skin permits disorders like Jakes, Staph, MRSA, and E-Coli to flourish on the unprotected skin.
During Bob’s talks around the world, he explains:
- How the Ecosystem of our skin works
- How everyday preservatives used in everyday products are destroying that Ecosystem
- How the friendly bacteria on our skin protects us from bad bacteria like MRSA
- How antibacterial sanitizers are destroying our skin’s Ecosystem?
- How our quest to be cleaner may be destroying our children’s youth and effecting their psyche for the rest of their lives.
- What we can do to reverse the trend toward Skin Health by stop what we use, challenging everyday thinking and choose a safer, smarter path.
Bob offers that it is “Time To Get Wise about our skin health. It is not normal for as many children to be suffering from skin diseases normally associated with aging skin. In our desire to protect our children, we are hurting them. In our desire to be an antibacterial society, we are affecting ourselves, our loved ones, our pets and our planet!”
New Book & Keys Speaking Series: What you put on your body is as important as what you put in it!
Speaker & Author: Bob Root
Title: CTO (Chief Technology Officer) Keys®.
The diagnosis of Eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and contact dermatitis may just be caused by personal care or household products you are using. Keys CTO, Bob Root, believes that over 50% of all skin disorders for people and their pets have been misdiagnosed and are actually caused by chemicals in the products we use on our skin and in our homes.
It is commonly accepted that what we put in our bodies affects our outside appearance. What is not discussed is that what we put on our body not only affects how we look and the condition of our skin health, but also our physical health. The skin is our largest organ, and what we put on it affects the rest of us.
This topic serves as the foundation for the book Bob has written and published by M42 Publishing, titled Chemical-Free Skin Health®. The book outlines chemicals used in everyday products are hazardous to humans and their pets. The speech covers the “Dirty Thirty” chemicals that are in over 90% of all personal care, household products, and pet care products that have been linked to elevated cancer rates.
Root Bio: Bob Root is a former High Tech CEO from Silicon Valley (San Jose, California). After his wife and Keys co-founder, Wendy Steele, a former Coca-Cola Vice President, was struck with Melanoma, Bob began to research and study skin conditions, not as a chemist but as a concerned engineer and scientist. When Wendy exhibited Eczema, adult acne, rosacea, and psoriasis, he turned to his engineering background to look for ancient remedies using modern technologies to improve on these tried and true natural medicines. Later, when the prescriptions for creams and sunscreens made Wendy’s skin worse, he began to develop products for her that were chemical-free and therapeutic. These remedies became the foundation of today, Keys®.
Bob is the Chief Scientist for Keys®. He holds numerous patents associated with his work in high technology. His background is mechanical engineering and quantum physics, with most studies in nano-machines and nanotechnology. He is responsible for the design, development, and manufacturing of Keys products.
Keys develop and manufacture natural skin medicines that are chemical-free, vegan, gluten-free, and therapeutic for people and dogs. Keys products follow an algorithm of pharmaceutical-grade natural ingredients in therapeutic proportions. These are ancient remedies employing modern process technologies.
Keys products carry the best safest product ratings by the EWG Skin Deep Report, and their Solar Rx sunblock was ranked the most effective by Consumer reports Magazine (July 2007). Bob is affiliated with The University of Maryland School of Medicine, Ohio State University, San Diego State University, and Los Alamos National Labs. He is a member of the Safe Cosmetics Campaign, and Keys is a SafeCosmetics.org compact signer. Bob is affiliated with the Natural Products Manufacturers Association and numerous industry associations. He is the author of the book “Defining Moments.” Bob has spoken at The Natural Products Expo trade shows, The Environmental Working Group, Cambridge Nano-Pharmacology Conference, and many local events.
