WHAT ARE THE GREEN ALTERNATIVES?

Pick out a controversial ingredient and discover the green alternative used at Melvita!

Mineral oils

Mineral oils

Derived from petrochemicals, mineral oils form an occlusive film that prevents the skin from breathing and alters its balance.

Green alternatives :

Natural and organic plant oils harvested through nut pressing and flower maceration, rich in active ingredients and easier for the skin to absorb.

Parabens

Parabens

These anti-microbial preservatives, classified as endocrine disruptors, are quickly absorbed by the skin.

Green alternatives :

The natural anti-oxidant, vitamin E that is found in some oils, and in small amounts the alcohol can be used as a preservative.

Triclosan

Triclosan

Triclosan is a prevalent and dangerous preservative as it is present in some toothpaste products and therefore, directly ingested. It is suspected to compromise the skin’s natural flora and to affect oestrogen hormone levels as well as thyroid function.

Green alternatives :

Essential oils, other natural anti-microbial preservatives and those authorized in organic cosmetics.

Silicones

Silicone

Mainly found in shampoos, conditioners and creams, silicone is used to form a film on the surface of the skin or hair, to create a coating. It prevents the skin or hair from breathing and is likely to contain toxic residues which are non-biodegradable.

Green alternatives :

Beeswax, natural gums and resins.

Sulphated surfactants

Sulphated surfactants

Mainly found in washing solutions to enable them to foam, they are also used as a cleanser, emulsifier and stabilizer. Some of them are aggressive on the skin and can cause skin irritation. The majority are non-biodegradable.

Green alternatives :

Plant-based non-sulphated surfactants which are kinder to nature (such as sunflower oil, algae and sugar derivatives) or mild synthetic-based products that are authorized for use in organic cosmetics.

Sels d’aluminium

Aluminium salts

Used in deodorants and antiperspirants, they tighten pores and limit the natural perspiration process. They are suspected of being harmful to health and potentially carcinogenic.

Green alternatives :

Alcohol, naturally absorbent powders and essential oils.
