Vellumay Advises On Parabens In Facial Moisturizers
Understanding Which Ingredients Could Be Harmful Can Be Confusing, But Worth The Effort.
Out of all the ingredients listed in most facial moisturizers, it can be confusing at best and nearly impossible at worst to figure what is good for you and what could potentially be harmful.
Among the humectants, emollients and plant based extracts and other ingredients, it can be difficult to tell which ingredients not only are best for your skin type, but also which ingredients are considered parabens that can have an adverse effect on your health and the environment.
Parabens have been linked to breast cancer, and they're banned in cosmetics in Europe [source: National Geographic Green Guide]. They include ingredients such as methyl ethyl ketone, methyl isobtyl ketone, ethyl alcohol, and methylene and are generally used as preservatives.
Boyce Henry, director of product and brand development for Savy Industries, the producers of the Vellumay line, commented on the use of parabens and other ingredients in face and eye creams, "Ingredients considered parabens are preservatives that should be avoided when selecting a proper moisturizer. It can be confusing for anyone but a chemist to decipher. However, the list previously indicated is good to keep handy when comparing products. Also, products containing diethanolamine, 1,4-dioxane, coal tar and toluene can have a harmful effect on the environment."
Henry added, "Adding to the complexity, many ingredients with chemically complex names are actually healthy additives. Ingredients such as glycerin, alpha hydroxy acids and dimethicone are actually healthy humectants, drawing moisture to the skin. The key point is to do a little homework and maybe spend a little more money to obtain a high quality moisturizer that works for your skin type. With just a minimal amount of research, one can easily ascertain the quality of ingredients in a good face moisturizer."
