it s become common knowledge that skincare
It’s become common knowledge that skincare products contain harmful chemicals or toxins. These toxins can cause major health issues, worsen the skin conditions they’re formulated to treat, and even cause new skin conditions. Because of this, many people are switching to natural products, and many manufacturers are removing common toxins from their products. If you’re switching to natural, you’ll need to know what to look for or what products are actually natural and safe. Below are some tips to help you find natural and safe skincare products.
read the ingredients
Read the Ingredients

Reading the ingredients is one of the quickest ways to check if a skincare product is safe and natural. Even “natural” products can contain sulfates, or the most common toxic chemicals found in skincare products. Truly natural skin care products only contain natural and safe ingredients.

to figure out if a product is safe start

To figure out if a product is safe, start by looking for the ingredients it doesn’t contain – toxic ingredients. Toxins to look out for include:

• Ethanolamine compounds or polysorbates like diethanolamine (DEA/MEA) and triethanolamine (TEA). Skincare labels might list these ingredients as: cocamide MEA or DEA, TEA-lauryl sulfate, DEA oleth-3 phosphate, and more. Basically, just look out for any products that contain DEA, MEA, or TEA.

check out the preservatives
Check Out the Preservatives

Natural or not, skincare products need preservatives to extend their shelf life. These preservatives can be either natural or synthetic. However, preservatives in conventional and natural products have been known to be potentially harmful. But, all you need to know is what to look out for.

products with preservatives like parabens benzyl

Products with preservatives like parabens, benzyl alcohol, and phenoxyethanol, should be avoided at all costs. Parabens (butylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, methylparaben, etc.) are related to issues in the endocrine system (endocrine or hormone disruptors) and can possibly cause tumour formation in the skin or breasts.Benzyl Alcohol is often found in major natural products and has been linked to allergies and severe allergic reactions. Phenoxyethanol is also found in natural products and is linked to depression of the central nervous system.

understand the claims
Understand the Claims

Many skincare products come with claims of being natural and safe. Some of the most common claims include: “Natural,” Sulfate-Free,” “Hypoallergenic,” “Organic,” and “Fragrance-free.”

however these claims may not be substantiated

However, these claims may not be substantiated, investigated, or regulated by the proper channels. This means that these claims may be false, which means that consumers may be using skincare products that aren’t actually “natural” or “organic.” These issues are the major reason why you should always check the ingredient list, as this list can’t be falsified. However, sites like Living Zest only sell verified natural products including products from top brands like Alter Eco USA.
