Dirty Secrets of the Cosmetic Industry Exposed

Some of the ingredients in beauty products aren’t that pretty and can actually cause skin problems and even ill health!

Did you know that US researchers report that one in eight of the 82,000 ingredients used in personal care products are industrial chemicals, including carcinogens, pesticides, reproductive toxins, and hormone disruptors. Many products include plasticizers (chemicals that keep concrete soft), degreasers (used to get grime off auto parts), and surfactants (they reduce surface tension in water, like in paint and inks). Imagine what that does to your skin, your health and to the environment!

Body care products are not required to comply to the same stringent labelling standards that govern organic foods, so it’s easy for some companies to label their products ‘organic’. But once you look at the ingredients, some ‘organic’ products are a far cry from being truly organic, healthy or environmentally friendly at all!

For example, water is the primary ingredient in many cosmetics, so some manufacturers use ‘organic aqueous infusions’ (just very watered down teas) to mislead customers into thinking they’re organic, while still using the same synthetic toxic ingredients that would NEVER be allowed in organic food products.

There are thousands of chemicals in your products, many of which are being absorbed into your body. Companies have cart blanche to use any ingredient or raw material without government review or approval.

The industry is highly unregulated. There is no pre-product approval before a product is released in to the market place and you purchase it. A minuscule approval process exists, but only for color additives and ingredients classified as over-the-counter drugs.

Many of these synthetic chemicals are skin penetrators, irritants, endocrine disrupters and carcinogenic.

Do you know the difference between the claims of natural, organic and certified organic and how do you find out the actual truth?

Learning vital information on ‘How to Become an Ingredient Detective’ is imperative in order to make healthier choices for yourself and your loved ones.

We must become very aware of the negative impact of greed, manipulation and flagrant disregard for our individual, collective and planetary health. As our species evolves, clearly sustainability must be a cornerstone for all commercial endeavours.

“The nauseating stream of candy-coated offerings that engulf us on a daily basis, from hype-driven tabloids and women’s magazines, manipulative commercials and unconscious television shows, need not be overwhelming or depressing!”

We simply need to see through the pull of big-business propaganda, and commit to educating ourselves about the facts and falsities of ‘natural’ consumer products, then act responsibly based upon that new knowledge, for our own lives and for those of our family, friends, community and the world.

Get the facts, be healthier and have more radiant, youthful looking skin and hair.
