Harmful Cosmetic Ingredients

Commonly sold and used face creams are loaded with hidden chemicals and there are a number of health risks surrounding them. We look through the aisles in our stores searching for creams that will assist us in having healthier skin but instead we are stuck with a number of options only that work to poison us for a profit. The key to healthy and natural beauty care is knowing exactly what is going into your skin. Use all-natural organic products that list exactly what ingredients they have used. The cosmetics we use should only have a few ingredients and they should all be words we are able to read. Once you know what to look for you can join other empowered shoppers taking the care to engage in conscious skin care habits.


  • The most commonly used preservative
  • Also used to prevent molds and fungus and parasites in the creams but can be absorbed through the skin and are often found in BREAST CANCER tumors

On labels they will appear in different forms therefore you will want to look out for the following names:
• benzylparaben
• butyiparaben
• propylparaben
• methylparaben
• ethylparaben
• isobutylparaben
