Have you ever looked at the ingredients listed on the label of your face cream
or shampoo and wondered what they are?
It’s difficult to even pronounce some of them let alone know what they are!
This is one of the reasons I like to use organic natural products and Neal’s Yard Organic have a huge range of wonderfully smelling, natural products. I love their frankincense intense range of face products.
Here’s a list of what they don’t use and what it means:
NO PARABENS – linked to oestrogen overproduction
NO SYNTHETIC FRAGRANCES – many contain synthetic chemicals that are harmful to health
NO GMO INGREDIENTS – not enough is known about the long-term implications
NO animal testing – unnecessary and cruel
NO SILICONES – coat the skin, impeding its natural function
NO PHTHALATES – reported to have toxic impact on human and animal life
NO NANO – not enough is known about the long-term implications
NO MINERAL OILS – derived from petroleum, have a tendency to block the skin
NO EDTA – doesn’t readily biodegrade
NO PROPYLENE GLYCOL – derived from petroleum
NO CARBOMER – derived from petroleum
NO DEA – associated with known carcinogens
NO ACRYLATES – derived from petroleum
NO BHT – linked to breathing and lung impairment
Have a look at the products you use and check the ingredients for any of the above. Now you have more of an idea of what it means.
