Our daily lives are full of products that come into contact with our skin. From clothes to moisturizers to fragrances and so much more, our skin is constantly bombarded with products, conditioners, and – frequently – chemicals. These chemicals can be easily absorbed into our skin, bringing a number of toxins along the way. Cosmetics companies and the FDA maintain that these chemicals are safe, and many of them are – in small doses at least.
The truth, however, is that almost 90 percent of the 10,500 cosmetics and skin care ingredients known to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have not been evaluated for safety by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review, the FDA, or any other publicly accountable institution, according to the Environmental Working Group. Although these products continue to be manufactured and do not present an immediate threat, people are begging to see that these chemicals can have a dangerous potential to unknown side effects. In fact, roughly 1,328 personal-product ingredients have been banned for use in cosmetics in the European Union because of concerns that they may cause cancer, birth defects, or reproductive ills. The United States, on the other hand, has only banned 11 chemicals from cosmetics.
Going organic and natural with your skin care products will help keep your skin and body free of extra toxins. A recent study suggests using natural ingredients for skin care can help treat hyperpigmentation and inflammation, while another suggests it can help with skin damage caused by the sun over our lifetimes. When choosing your skin care products, make sure to only use the safest, nontoxic product on the shelves.
Watch for Labels
Toxic synthetic chemicals found in skin care products are a growing concern to users. And although the words “natural” and “all-natural” may be used within the beauty industry, these are not regulated terms. Basically, any company can use these terms – even if their products are far from natural. Pay close attention when examining product labels and mainly focus on the ingredients rather than eye-catching phrases and promises.
Artificial fragrances can trigger allergic reactions and other health problems. Often times, these fragrances are used to cover up the odor of chemicals in beauty products. In other words, companies will use a chemical to mask the smell of other chemicals. Natural health and beauty products smell like their natural ingredients. Some products are even scented with natural essential oils that can even provide aromatherapy.
Benefits of Natural and Organic Products
Organic and natural ingredients are those grown without synthetic fertilizers or pesticides, which is environmentally friendly and healthier for our bodies. Because they are so pure, these products have the ability to heal internally and externally. Organic ingredients that are absorbed through the skin can increase collagen production, repair free radical damage, and improve oxygen and blood flow to the skin. Externally, natural products tighten skin, diminish lines and wrinkles, repair discoloration, and protect the skin from environmental elements.
