A Guide to Selecting Safe Beauty Products

»Posted by on Oct 14, 2020 in Skin Care Services | 0 comments

The largest organ a human being has is the skin. Beauty products that are used to the skin are penetrated directly into the bloodstream preventing the liver’s detoxifying abilities. Food is processed and transmitted to the liver to cleanse and the byproducts are distributed all over your body through the bloodstream. Hence, skincare products that contain harmful ingredients are way beyond toxic compared to any food. When you are purchasing organic food, you need to be using safe personal care products as well. To help you choose safe personal and beauty products, check out the tips below:

Tip #1:

Make sure to personally research the products. The beauty industry now is ultimately unregulated. Hence, it is your responsibility to research and looks for the safest products you can use. Know that personal care products that are claimed to be “organic,” “natural,” or “pure” have no legal standards. Thus, make sure to carefully read the labels and look beyond the marketing claims.

Tip #2:

Other personal care products can easily be made by yourself. You can use this as a good project for a party. Enjoy making your own body oils, salt scrubs, or sugar today. But, see to it that you’ll only use organic and simple ingredients.

Tip #3:

Never forget to inspect the ingredients of your significant other as well. This trip doesn’t only apply to makeup. All personal products are included here like toothpaste, body wash, deodorant, body lotion, shaving cream, shampoo, etc.

Tip #4:

Print, cut, laminate, and always bring with you a list and a guide of ingredients especially if you’re planning to shop for personal products. The listed ingredients in your guide must not be included in any of the beauty or personal products you purchase. In the end, It’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Tip #5:

Make sure to inspect your ingredients and/or products on a database of personal products. The environmental working group has been updating this database that comprises more than 72,00 items as of now, which are rated from 0-10. 0 means that it’s extremely safe to use and 10 means that you need to throw that to your trash bin right away. When your product isn’t listed in this database, it is either because the company hasn’t approved to get their products listed or the EWG hasn’t reached there yet. This is something you should think about if you can’t see your brand on the list.

Tip #6:

Do not use products with fragrance. If you can see any product with “fragrance” as one of the ingredients, then make sure not to consider buying it. By law, “fragrance” is a term by law that’s trade secret. Hence, companies don’t need to expose the ingredients used for this. There may be 1, 3, 10, or even 1,500 ingredients that are hidden behind that word. Instead, only opt for the best vegan face moisturizer or any vegan products to guarantee that it’s 100 percent safe to use.

If you’re unsure about a particular ingredient, do not hesitate to consult your doctor about it right away.
