Skincare products are a very broad subject that we can go on and on about. I am interested in knowing where and what’s in the products because most of the time, we don’t know what they put in them, which is scary.

With all the environmental changes, our skin has some challenges staying clean and healthy. Actually, It is not easy to know what to look for.

Also, each person has a different skin tone and needs, so we must be aware of our specificity.

What to look

Are they safe, pure, and efficient? What company makes them? We need to research the company and what they are using to make their products. In addition, people nowadays are looking for vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free, but it is up to us to decide regarding these criteria.

In addition, we may want to look for questionable chemicals and ingredients in our skin products.

This a summary list of free of:

  • Parabens
  • Phthalates
  • Propylene glycol
  • BHT – BHA
  • Sodium/ammonium lauryl sulphate
  • Mercury
  • Hydroquinone
  • Perfluorinated compounds
  • Mineral oil
  • Petrolatum
  • Synthetic colours
  • Synthetic fragrances
  • Benzalkonium chloride
  • Benzophenone
  • Cyclomethicone
  • Aluminum lakes
  • Petroleum-derived wawes
  • Methylisothiazolinone
  • Butoxyethanol  –   EDTA
  • Formaldehyde-donating preservatives

To name a few of them, but there is more.

The bottom line is when we start using new products, put a small amount on top of your hand so you won’t have your face red if you are allergic. Because we don’t know if we will have a reaction even for natural products, it is safer to start with your hand first.

Even if we use natural products, we may sometimes have a reaction. As for me, whatever natural brands that I am using, I have a problem with the eye treatment product no matter what. It is an uncomfortable feeling that I have in my eyes, and I cannot use it.

Ultimately, it is important to study the company and look for the ingredients in their products and go slowly in the beginning.

Most of all, you will find a company with safe products for you and your family.

I would love to hear from you,

To your healthy skin!
