A new study out of the United Kingdom found the average British woman wears 515 chemicals a day on her body.

Most of those chemicals include deodorant, moisturizer, make-up, hair spray and perfume.

Moisturizer alone can contain over 30 different chemicals. Perfumes have up to 400 chemicals in them.

The survey was conducted by deodorant maker Bionsen. It also found more than 70 percent of the women interviewed were not concerned about the chemicals they put on their skin each day.
