Harmful chemicals are everywhere in life! Many of the products produced in every field from food to cosmetics contain components that threaten health. These harmful substances in the contents of cosmetics and care products seriously harm both skin health and general health. For this reason, checking the ingredient list while purchasing a product is no longer a necessity but a necessity.
Purchasing by reading the ingredient lists of daily care products is a topic that has spread rapidly in recent years. However, many people have not yet gotten into the habit of looking at the ingredient list. So what are these synthetic and petroleum-derived harmful chemicals that should not be on the ingredient lists of skin care products?
Harmful Ingredients Used in Skin Care Products
Developments in the beauty and care industry have also changed product contents. Many manufacturers move away from natural ingredients in production in order to extend the shelf life of products, improve their physical properties such as smell, color and consistency, or reduce costs. As such, it has become difficult both to obtain the promised benefit from cosmetic products and to reach healthy and natural care in terms of care. It has become very difficult to find products such as herbal creams, natural moisturizing creams and moisturizing lotions.
Harmful ingredients to be avoided when choosing skin care products can be listed as follows:
- Sodium Sulphate
- Cetyl Alcohol
- Mineral Oils
- Liquid Paraffins
Many of these substances prevent molding and deterioration of the products in which they are added, thus extending the shelf life and protecting the formulation of the products for a long time. For this reason, it is preferred by many manufacturers for the ingredients of products included in their daily care routine, such as moisturizing lotions. However, most of these harmful chemicals, synthetic and petroleum-derived, have a carcinogenic effect. Products such as natural moisturizing cream and natural moisturizing lotion heal the skin. On the other hand, those with chemical content can lead to situations such as disrupting the natural balance of the skin in the long term, causing various skin problems and hormonal imbalances.
What is Natural Ingredient?
The use of skin care products dates back to ancient times. In the times when the cosmetics industry was not as developed as it is today, the answers to all the questions asked for the solution of skin problems were found in nature. Valuable oils and elements in nature were processed and used as a skin care product. However, with the cosmetics industry taking its share from the developing technology, these pure ingredients were filled with chemicals. It has become more valuable to reach natural ingredients to protect both skin health and general health.
Natural ingredients are all valuable vitamins, ingredients and extracts that already exist in nature and human nature. Sometimes the seed of a fruit and sometimes the oil of a seed can be included in the content of a herbal cream produced for cosmetic purposes. These ingredients from nature protect the world we live in as well as our skin. Herbal creams are nature-friendly thanks to the valuable extracts they contain.
What are the natural ingredients used in cosmetics?
Our skin deserves special sensitivity and attention. Valuable ingredients are our biggest supporters in repairing, caring for and fighting skin problems. The ingredients of herbal products whose source is based on nature can be enriched as much as nature.
The content of many care products such as natural moisturizing creams and soaps can be diversified with vegetable oils, valuable flower and fruit extracts, special elements in nature and ingredients naturally found in our skin structure. Macadamia oil, blueberry extract, squalene from olives, niacinamide, which is found in the extracts of many plants, are some of the valuable herbal ingredients.
