Avoid Chemicals In Your Skin Care

Preservatives are a priority ingredient for the product and consumers well-being.

When reading the ingredient list of your skincare products you may find chemical and petro-chemical agents listed alongside natural ingredients. Parabens - Parabens are a class of petro-chemicals widely used as preservatives in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. Parabens are effective preservatives in many types of formulas. Grapefruit Seed Extract - Grapefruit seed extract (GSE), also known as citrus seed extract, is a liquid derived from the seeds, pulp, and white membranes of grapefruit. Some marketers of GSE affirm this extract to be a safe, natural, and an effective preservative. Vitamin E is oil soluble. There are 2 types of vitamin E oil available: natural (d-tocopherol) and synthetic (dl-tocopherol). Only the natural vitamin E has antioxidant value.

Rosemary Oleoresin - Rosemary Oleoresin, also known as Rosemary Oil Extract or ROE is an oil soluble, natural extract used to prevent oxidation and delay rancidity in natural oils and products that contain oils. Black Willow Bark - Black Willow Bark has been shown to possess potent antimicrobial properties. When combined together in proper proportions, the natural ingredients listed above, particularly Vitamin E, Neem Oil, Rooibos Tea Extract, ROE, and Black Willow Bark can provide a natural preservation system that allows your anti ageing care products to have a shelf life of up to 18 months.

Now though, you have access to a fairly nice variety of chemical free products either with the click of a button online, or in your local grocery store since most grocers now have a whole separate section dedicated to organic or natural body care products.

It may contain other words if it is listed on the label, but if it has the word aluminum in the listing of ingredients, I would avoid it.
