The Dangers of Modern Cosmetics Exposed

Jul 18, 2008
The dangers of modern skin care are under recognized. Each day millions of people are putting stuff on their skin that is so toxic, it has disposal regulations keeping it out of landfills. Yet the government has absolutely no regulation on what is put into skin care, where it comes from, or even if all the ingredients are placed on the label.

That is why it is important to look for all natural, plant based, organic certified products. These are the very same organic food products that have passed local or federal regulations. That's right, if you wouldn't eat it, then why are you putting it directly on the biggest organ in your body? Organic skin care products have to be guaranteed to be safe even if ingested.

Think about what you are putting onto your skin

Right now there is a lot of talk about organic foods and clothing in the media and on people's minds. Look anywhere and you can see companies trying to get in on the bandwagon. Grocery stores across the nation are sporting organic foods sections. Some even offer a couple of selections of organic skin care products such as bar soap and toothpaste.

Forget buying so called natural products from chain stores. Sure, they might have botanical essences or fruit extracts, but that does not mean they are really natural. It's akin to making stew with toxic wastes and then adding a carrot to the pot and calling it healthy. Would you eat it? Would you put it on your baby? Would you wash your clothes with it? And what about your beloved pets? Yet every day millions of unwary buyers are applying death dealing toxins right onto their skin.

The Exposed Truth: Dangers of Modern Skin Care

For the most part, people pay no attention to what they put onto their skin other than if it smells nice or they like how the package looks. Unknowingly, many people are overloading one of the most valuable parts of their body with noxious chemicals that cause cancer, brain damage, and other major health concerns such as aging, hair loss, impotency, and skin disorders.

Gasoline by-products, fish scales, road kill, parts from dead animals, beetles and a ton of other toxic chemicals are being put on the skin unbeknownst to consumers. Alcohol, Formaldehyde, Padimate-O, Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Petrolatum, Propane, Animal Fat (Tallow) and many others are also death and cancer causing as well as skin drying and killing ingredients.

Make-up companies are allowed to put the majority of these into the items they sell and are not required to list them anywhere on the labelling.

Organic is the Answer

The damage can be reversed by the use of organically certified products. The skin is fed with these. The amount of toxins from the environment that is put into the body can be cut down by using organic skin care products in place of the usual skin care products. The damage from highly toxic chemicals can be undone. You won't burn as quickly in the sun because organic skin care products are not based on gasoline. The skin can now breathe. There are fewer issues with reproductive health and fewer birth defects.

For many years the skin was not thought of as an organ. Now it is know that it is one of the largest organs of the body. It regulates temperature, regulates moisture content and protects us from disease. Additionally, it breathes, it eliminates toxins and wastes from the body, and it absorbs nutrients and information from its surroundings. It is a semi-permeable covering that keeps us healthy.

You will feed the skin by using organically certified skin care products that do not contain toxins. Feeding the skin with organic products will reverse the growth of cancer cells, renew the skin's elasticity, stop aging and get rid of the dead weight of chemical skin care products so the skin can breathe again.
