Healing Properties of Ingredients Contained in Our Products

Going Green with Natural Skin Care

Awareness of the beneficial effects of green living is on the rise, and consequently many of us are focusing on areas of our lives where we can make changes that are better for us as individuals as well as the environment as a whole.

We tend to apply an assortment of products to our skin on a daily basis to hydrate or treat skin ailments. However, many of these products contain synthetic emulsifiers, plastics, preservatives, dyes, fragrances, silicones, or other miscellaneous chemicals and petroleum products that do not contribute significantly to healthy skin. And since the skin cannot differentiate between benign and harmful chemicals, it indiscriminately absorbs whatever chemicals we put on it, a fact that should concern us because many of these products may be detrimental to our overall health.

Interestingly, in Europe, more than 1,110 of these personal care product ingredients that we use here are banned for use in cosmetic products by the European Union because of concerns that they could cause birth defects, reproductive complications, cancer, or other adverse health issues. The U.S., in contrast, has banned only 10 of these same ingredients. That leaves 1,000, or more, chemicals and other components that our bodies are absorbing through our skin with potential for side effects. Moreover, beyond the fact that they aren't banned, many of these complex chemicals used in cosmetics have not even been tested by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review, FDA, or any other institution to verify that they are truly safe to use, leaving us no way to even know what the potential effects of using them may be.

Natural organic skin care products have none of these dangers, and are just as effective, or more so, in hydrating and treating skin conditions. This has made many of us start to realize the need to use more healthy skin products in our daily skin regiment.
