INGREDIENTS ARE EVERYTHING
IN A PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS

Are you tired of synthetic and toxic chemicals being ingredients in the skin care products you buy? Are you wondering what all those mysterious chemical ingredients are in the creams you buy? Are you sick of the promises the mass-marketed skin care products make and then never deliver? Are you tired of buying products that just donít work? Are you wondering, exactly what ingredient in this product makes it work? What makes it an astringent or what makes it healing and moisturizing? If you answer yes to any of the above questions, you are not alone.

There is a quiet revolution going on in the minds of women all over America. They are beginning to question all of those chemical ingredients and trying to figure out how they are suppose to protect, heal, and moisturize the skin. How do chemical ingredients promote beautiful skin? How do chemical ingredients that are known carcinogens be stated as being, ďanti-aging?Ē

There are questions to ask yourself as you try to decide which skin care products to use. What is the ingredient that makes the product function? If it is an astringent, does it have herbs in it that are high in tannic acid? Does it contain witch hazel? Does it contain essential oil of lavender, which balances any skin type? What specifically are the astringent ingredients?

If itís a moisturizer, what are the moisturizing ingredients? Does it contain humectants such as honey or vegetable glycerin that helps bring moisture from the air to your skin? How about high quality oils for lubrication? If you are using a moisturizer to help prevent wrinkles, does it have an ingredient that reputedly helps your skin regenerate itself such as horsetail, chestnut, comfrey, or rosehip seed oil? If you are using a lotion to sooth your skin, does it contain ingredients like calendula or chamomile that are anti-inflammatory and skin-conditioning?

Assuming that the product you have decided on has the desirable ingredients to perform its designated function, now you need to look at possible undesirable ingredients. These, can undo any good the desirable ingredients do.

In fact, A report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta said that, ďmany adults have high level of toxic chemicals in their bodies because of synthetic ingredients in many mass-market personal care products.Ē How can synthetic chemicals improve your skin?

What is a consumer to do? Make your own; there are many great books available at Vitamin Cottage. Making your own products at home is a fun and easy way to control the ingredients and quality of your skin care. If you arenít up for making your own, look for products that are not only Organic, but look for synthetic chemical-free products. Buy products that have ingredients that are healing, healthful and skin regenerative from Mother Nature, like comfrey, calendula, and rosehip seed oil, primrose oil, and pure essential oils. Check in the chemical dictionary books for synthetic ingredients and fragrances and avoid them. Only buy skin care products at you natural food store. Get on the internet and learn more about dangerous chemical ingredients, including websites like the Center for Disease Control.
