THE EVIL 12 INGREDIENTS TO AVOID IN YOUR SKINCARE


The skin is the largest and also one of the most important organs on our body. It performs several vital functions for the body including protecting the other vital organs, bones, muscles, ligaments, and nerves. It only makes sense to be extremely mindful of what we are putting on our skin.


WHY SHOULD IT MAKE SENSE 


Up to 60% of what we put on our skin gets absorbed. That means that the products we put onto our bodies affects our health and overall well being, either negatively or positively. 


A lot of ingredients found in traditional skincare products (face washes, lotions, sunscreen, etc) have now been linked to health issues such as allergies, eczema, cancer, hormonal disruption, and reproductive problems. So yes your skincare can make you very sick!


Say yes to Nutrients and No to Poison


Feed your skin nutrients, not poison it. 


Avoid these:  


  1. ALUMINUM

Toxic metal that can have oestrogen-like effects in our systems, disrupting the healthy functioning of the endocrine system.


Usually found in almost every personal care product, especially antiperspirant deodorants.


 


  1. DEA (diethanolamine), MEA (Monoethanolamine), and TEA (triethanolamine)

Clear, colorless, viscous liquids with ammonia-like odors.


Usually found in products that foam like facial cleansers and soaps. They are also found in eye makeup , fragrances, hair products, and sunscreens.


 

  1. DMDM HYDANTOIN & UREA (Imidazolidinyl)

Preservatives that often release formaldehyde which may cause joint pain, skin allergies, headaches, and loss of sleep.


Usually found in skincare products, cosmetics, shampoos and conditioners, and detergents.


 


  1. MINERAL OIL

A petroleum by-product that coats the skin like plastic, clogging its pores. This is incredibly harmful because it interferes with skin’s ability to eliminate toxins, therefore increasing likelihood of acne and other disorders.


Usually found in creams, lotions, ointments, and cosmetics.


 

  1. PARABENS (Methyl, Butyl, Ethyl, Propyl)

Not always labeled, used as preservatives, and may contribute to hormone imbalance.


Usually found almost everywhere including skincare products such as moisturizers and deodorants.



  1. PEG (Polyethylene glycol)

Ingredient that can alter and reduce the skin’s natural moisture factor. It adjusts the melting point and thickens products.


Usually found in cleansers to dissolve oil and grease.



  1. PHTHALATES

Chemicals used to increase flexibility and strength of plastics, and not often listed among the ingredients on products.


Usually found in cosmetics such as fragrance oils and listed under the term “fragrance".

 


  1. PROPYLENE GLYCOL (PG) & BUTYLENE GLYCOL

Gaseous hydrocarbons which in a liquid state act as “surfactant”. They penetrate the skin so quickly and can weaken the protein and cellular structure.


Usually used to make extracts from herbs.



  1. SILOXANES

Look for ingredients ending in "-siloxane" or "-methicone." Used in a variety of cosmetics to soften, smooth and moisten. Suspected endocrine disrupter and reproductive toxicant (cyclotetrasiloxane). Harmful to fish and other wildlife.



  1. SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE (SLS) & SODIUM LAURETH SULFATE (SLES)

Detergent that makes products foam, lather, and bubble.


Usually found in 90% of personal-care products that foam!

 


  1. SYNTHETIC FRAGRANCES

Anything that is synthetic or artificial should always raise a red flag. These are made up of hundreds to thousands of different ingredients not listed on the label, so you are never sure what you are actually being exposed to.


Usually found in cosmetic and skincare products but also many household products such as candles, air fresheners, and scented trash bags.



  1. TRICLOSAN

A synthetic antibacterial agent that may disrupt thyroid function and can degrade into a form of dioxin, a class of chemicals linked to a broad range of toxicities including cancer.


Usually found in soaps, mouthwash, shaving cream, deodorants, toothpastes, etc.


 

Taking all of these into consideration the next time you are shopping for skincare products, would you read the  the ingredient lists thoroughly and not skim over words, especially the ones you can’t pronounce. Your skincare products should be made with pure, organic ingredients and should not contain any toxins that could affect your health.


Leaving you with a thought here.. Question what is in your facial mist, toner, cleanser or pillow mist. 

Made of pure Rose Damescena water.. sounds amazing… but hey it is a water hydrosol. Ask if it is preserved … if it is not, are you happy to spray something that is a breeding ground of microbes on your face..? 

Here is a little problem for you to research and solve: 


Is this fully natural? Is this what you spray on your face and body? According to me this is not fully natural.. But then why is it advertised as fully natural? Is this what you deserve. 


Rosa Damascena Floral Water


Banding  INCI Name

99.97% Rosa Damascena Distillate / Rosa Damascena Flower Water

0.1%     Potassium Sorbate

0.1% Sodium Benzoate

0.1% Citric Acid
