Our skin is our largest organ – don’t poison yourself with chemical based artificial ingredients. Especially when there are plant based solutions in most situations.
Bye bye Parabens
The scary part about this commonly used preservative is that it can mimic estrogen in the body, totally throwing off hormonal balance.
If that isn’t bad enough, Parabens have also been linked to breast cancer.
Instead, look for oil-based products.
They generally have a longer shelf life, naturally. Vitamin E, vitamin C, grapeseed oil, and jojoba oil have all been used as natural anti-oxidizers -to preserve shelf life. These vitamins and oils are natural antioxidants, meaning they prevent the oxidation, thereby preserving them and extending shelf life.
These engineered ingredients–also known as fragrance oils–come from more than 3,000 types of chemicals, including ones that can disrupt your hormones and trigger allergies.
Artificial fragrances can also be drying and irritating to the skin.
The most worrisome part is that there are no restrictions on the use of artificial fragrance, and since scents are protected by trade law, they can remain undisclosed.
Organic essential oils offer a fantastic alternative to artificial scents.
They are steam distilled using pure plant extracts rather than synthetic compounds. Essential oils offer scent satisfaction on a deeper level, according to many people. Most even contain additional medicinal benefits including anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and antifungal properties.
Be safe out there.
