Somehow I came across an article in a magazine about a healthy lifestyle. She was devoted to harmful components in the composition of cosmetics. Since then, I began to carefully study the labels when buying cosmetics. Today I want to talk about exactly what ingredients I avoid.
When I first heard this word, I thought about how it sounds good – pa-ra-be-ny. In fact, it turned out to be very harmful synthetic preservatives that help extend the life of cosmetics. But at the same time, parabens accelerate the aging of my skin. And I do not want to grow old before my cosmetics 🙂
Therefore, I now carefully study the label for these harmful substances. And recently, I learned that these same parabens can lead to oncology in the chest. No, I definitely do not need such happiness!
It is also a word to me unknown, but quite common in the composition of cosmetics. As I understand it, phthalates are solvents that help other ingredients to mix and make friends with each other.
And from the school chemistry class I know that all solvents are toxic. I do not want to poison with toxins, which can also lead to cancer. I buy cosmetics without phthalates.
3 Mineral oils.
The name is also beautiful, but in fact, as I read in the article and then independently studied, these are derivatives of petroleum products. In general, ordinary gasoline is added to cosmetics that I bought.
I now choose products without oil products, because they clog pores, suppress lung function and can lead to pneumonia.
four. Propylene glycol.
When I turned to a dermatologist about my problem skin, she immediately told me the reason for the appearance of acne. The doctor explained that now this makeup propylene glycol is being added to the cosmetics I buy.
You will now be in shock – it is added to household chemicals! This antifreeze serves us both in floor washing liquids and in facial wash, can you imagine? Do you know why? And all because he is a very good frother!
This is generally an antibiotic. I do not want to use drugs constantly, and even without the need. Therefore, I am looking for tools without triclosan. And the cunning manufacturers do not even think about the health of consumers; the main thing for them is that the expiration date of the product be longer.
And how do you choose cosmetics? What are you paying attention to?
