Industry development, exclusion of organic ingredients, their replacement with chemical substitutes... human race started to consume more and more toxins. Some consumers are aware they are exposed to many dangers, but most of them aren't! Have you ever came to think your powder, lipstick and cream might poison you?
Researches prove many chemicals, aproved by FDA, used in cosmetic industry pose a threat to (wo)man's health if using them on the long run. If you come to think how often you really use cosmetic products, this information becomes frightening! And years go by...
'Chemicals in cosmetic industry aren't dangerous, because their concentrations are too small to present a threat.'
How often do you really use those cosmetic products? Evenmore, how many different cosmetic products do you really use?
Average woman uses every single day:
- daily and night cream,
- some other makeup product,
- tonic to clean her face.
She uses five different cosmetic products every day!
What chemical concentrations do we actually take into out bodies?
You might still think 5 cosmetic products contain too small amount of chemicals that could threaten someone's health.
What if these chemical combinations and poisons deposit and store somewhere in your body? This is what they namely do! Human body stores artifical chemical combinations that cannot be unbluild natually. Thus, the longer you use some cosmetic product, the more chemicals will your body have to store.
Chemicals, stored in our bodies attain high concentrations with years of usage:
parabens: UK scientists have claimed preservative chemicals found in samples of breast tumours probably came from underarm deodorants. Their analysis of 20 breast tumours found high concentrations of para-hydroxybenzoic acids (parabens) in 18 samples. Parabens can mimic the
hormone estrogen, which is known to play a role in the development of breast cancers.
mineral oils: are sideproduct of rough naphtha distilation into benzine fuel; they clog pores and damage skin
artificial fragrances: can cause allergic reactions; especially in children
ftalat: chemicals, known to be most dangerous; they damage liver, kidney and reproductive organs.
Where can we find parabens?
The preservatives are used in many cosmetics and some foods to increase their shelf-life. We can find them in:
- facial make-up
- self-tanning lotions
- tanning lotions
- makeup removers
- hydrating creams
- underarm deodorants
and many other cosmetic products.
Parabens hide under names, like:
Creams and many othercosmetic products that contain natural ingredients are unrecognizable on the market. As long as consumers demand creams and other chemical cosmetic products, cosmetic industry will produce them and will sacrifice consumer's health for profit!
