INGREDIENTS TO AVOID IN SKIN CARE PRODUCTS

null

Do you apply mold inhibitors, coal tar and liquid paraffin to your face as part of your morning routine? You may not think you do, but you probably are if you are applying conventional moisturizers, sunscreens, lipsticks, mascaras and other skin care products. While these items masquerade as “beauty” products, there’s often a lot of ugliness in those little cosmetic bottles and jars. They include plasticizers (chemicals that keep concrete soft), degreasers (used to get grime off auto parts), and mold inhibitors (such as used in house paint). Researchers say that 1 in 8 of the 82,000 ingredients used in personal care products are industrial chemicals, including carcinogens, pesticides, reproductive toxins, and hormone disruptors.
