Beyond Skin Deep: Facts Now Faced About Beauty Products
Scientist Recently Unveiled The Ugly Truth
Dr. Joseph Mercola, alternative health guru held a press conference announcing that one woman alone can absorb close to 5 pounds of chemicals per year solely by the daily use of make-up. "That doesn't include other skin products such as anti-aging cream, deodorant, and body lotion," he stated.
Mercola explained further that in order to fully understand the process, it is important to learn the science behind it all. When a damaged cell breaks off, it loses an electron and becomes what is known as a free radical, or an unpaired cell. The damaged cell sets out on a mission to find a mate. This is where the nightmare begins.
The free radical will steal an electron off another molecule which will, in turn, make that molecule a free. Thus, the destructive cycle. When the free radical pulls an electron, if it does so from an oxidant, or bad mate, and it becomes a bad guy as well. If it pulls a good electron, however, it becomes good.
Chemicals and toxins provide a breeding ground for free radicals to latch on to bad mates. Smoking, polluted drinking water and chemicals in beauty products are all examples of things that set the stage for destruction. When the bad guys take over it is called oxidation. A shiny new bicycle that is left outside in the weather to rust does so due to oxidation.
The same is true of the skin. Oxidation causes skin to wrinkle, sag and thin. That women everywhere are paying a nice chunk of change to look younger when in fact, those very products are doing the exact opposite.
Scientist determined that there are over 10,000 ingredients found in toiletries such as toothpaste, nail polish, make-up and face creams. Of those, only 13% have been reviewed and when they were, it was only by the Cosmetics Ingredients Review.
Furthermore, with the exception of color additives, cosmetic products and the ingredients therein do not have to be approved by the FDA. By law, cosmetic companies are not required to list all the product's ingredients on the label.
Paraben found in deodorants, shampoos and lotions and is a female hormone is harmful. Mineral oil and paraffin clog pores and also make the skin look older. They also cause cancer.
Sodium lauryl sulfate is another to watch for. It is often used in shampoo, hair color, foundation make-ups, toothpastes, facial cleansers and lotions. It's used in cleaning solutions. The real problem with sodium lauryl sulfate is what happens in the processing. In the mixing of compounds, 1,4-dioxane, a carcinogen that causes toxicity in organs is formed. The ingredient is not found on any label since it is created by the reaction of chemicals, not an added ingredient.
There are a myriad of other harmful ingredients found in popular beauty products that are rubbed right onto the skin. While no one would eat these chemicals, it is actually worse to apply them topically as they go directly into the bloodstream.
Facing the facts is not always a pleasant thing to do. Women like their beauty products. But, it is imperative to know a product's ingredients and to weight the consequences.
While no woman is excited about possibly parting with her favorite beauty regiment, the good news is that there are plenty of organic solutions available.
All-natural and organic solutions are earth-friendly and animal-friendly ones. Often it is the added ingredients that are harmful. Containers can be detrimental too but BHP free plastics or bottled products are available.
Due to scientists and their research, Many women are becoming more informed about beauty products. In turn they are using products containing quality ingredients. Ignorance is bliss but knowledge is power.
