Dangers of non-organic cosmetics

•    Artificial, harmful and dangerous ingredients
•    Denaturalizing your beauty
•    Short-term beauty, lifelong regret

SAYING YES TO CERTIFIED ORGANIC PRODUCTS MEANS SAYING NO TO:

DEA and MEA
•    Most commonly found in body washes, shampoos, soaps and facial cleansers.
•    These are hormone-disrupting chemicals and are known to form cancer-causing nitrates.
•    They are easily absorbed through the skin and are significantly even more dangerous for children.

Formaldehyde
•    Most commonly found in nail polishes, baby soaps and body washes.
•    Easily absorbed by the human skin and has been previously linked as a cause of skin sensitivity and cancer.
•    It is included in the manufacture of water-based consumer products to prevent bacterial growth.

Isopropyl Alcohol
•    Most commonly found in hair color rinses, body rubs, hand lotions, after-shave lotions and fragrances.
•    It is a solvent and a denaturant (poisonous substance that changes another substance's natural qualities).
•    Inhalation or ingestion of the vapor may cause headaches, dizziness, mental depression, vomiting and coma.

Mineral Oil
•    Most commonly found in baby lotions, cold creams, ointments and cosmetics.
•    The skin's natural immune barrier is disrupted as the oil inhibits its ability to breathe and absorb moisture and nutrition.
•    The skin's ability to release toxins is impeded by this oil which can promote acne and other disorders, and slow down normal cell development causing the skin to prematurely age.

Parabens
•    Most commonly found in shampoos, conditioners, facial cleansers and scrubs.
•    They are easily absorbed by the skin and enter the bloodstream and the digestive system. Evidences of their concentrations were found in breast tumor biopsy results.

Polyethylene glycol
•    Most commonly found in cleansers, skin creams and toothpastes.
•    Used to dissolve oil and grease.
•    It strips the natural moisture factor from the skin, leaving the immune system vulnerable, and is a potential cause of cancer.

Propylene Glycol
•    Most commonly found in make-up products, hair products, lotions, after-shaves, deodorants, mouthwashes and toothpastes.
•    Upon skin contact, it has systemic consequences such as brain, liver and kidney abnormalities.

Sodium lauryl sulfate
•    Most commonly found in facial cleansers, toothpastes, shampoos and products that foam.
•    It can cause eye damage, labored breathing, diarrhea and severe skin irritation.
