10 Dangerous Ingredients to Avoid In Skin Care

  1. 1. 10 Dangerous Ingredients To Avoid in Skin Care Products<br />
  2. 2. Ureas<br />Ureas are preservatives that have the potential to release formaldehyde in very small amounts and are a primary cause of contact dermatitis. <br />Formally known as diazolidinyl urea, imidazolidinyl urea, or DMDM hydantoin and sodium hydroxymethylglycinate<br />
  3. 3. Parabens<br />Parabens, found in breast cancer tissue, are a suspected carcinogen.<br />The particular parbens were found in relative concentrations that closely parallel their use in the synthesis of cosmetic products." <br />Many manufacturers argue the jury is still out on this chemical, but--do you really want to risk it?<br />
  4. 4. Synthetic Fragrances<br />Since they are considered secret, guess what, none of the at times hundreds of chemicals in a fragrance are actually listed on that bottle. <br />Fragrances can contain neurotoxinsand are among the top five allergens in the world," reports Cosmetics Database.<br />
  5. 5. Phthalates<br />Male reproductive development is acutely sensitive to some phthalates.<br />Banned from personal care products in Europe!<br /> About a billion pounds per year are still produced and sold worldwide.<br />
  6. 6. Petrochemicals<br />These are derived from crude oil. Petroleum-based ingredients such as petrolatum, mineral oil, and paraffin (derived from nonrenewable sources)<br />Tend to form a barrier when applied to the skin that does not allow it to breathe and can clog pores. <br />
  7. 7. Chemical Sunscreens<br /> Chemical sunscreens, such as oxybenzone and octylmethoxycinnamate, have been shown to disrupt endocrine activity. Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are safer alternatives. <br />
  8. 8. Propylene Glycol<br />This cosmetic form of mineral oil is commonly found in skin and personal care products. It is an eye irritant, experimental teratogen, has dangerous reproductive effects and is ingestible poison. <br />Also commonly used in cleaning products<br />
  9. 9. Sodium Lauryl Sulphate(SLS)<br />Used as a surfactant (foaming agent) in body washes, bubble baths, foaming cleansers, cream cleansers, shampoos and toothpaste it is a common skin irritant and is rapidly absorbed and retained in the eyes, brain, heart and liver.<br />
  10. 10. Synthetic Colors<br /> Synthetic colors are made from coal tar. <br />They contain heavy metal salts that may deposit toxins onto the skin, causing skin sensitivity and irritation.<br />Animal studies have shown almost all of them to be carcinogenic. <br />They will be labeled as FD&C or D&C, followed by a color and a number. <br />
  11. 11. Nanos<br /> Nanos are a new technology with inconclusive but potentially hazardous study results. <br />Research suggests that when tiny nano particles penetrates the skin, they may cause cell damage. <br />
