The New York Times has recently published a rather cautious article on harmful substances hidden in cosmetics and personal hygiene products - due to a lack of legal obligations and regulations in the cosmetics industry.
Why is it important to be aware of ingredients and promote an organic / natural brand?
Make-up is increasingly concerned about the use of industrial chemicals, including carcinogens, pesticides, toxins, and hormone disruptors. At FEY we thought it was important to share useful tips on what to look for and what to explain about the ingredients. Information is a power. If all users have the potential to detect and avoid potential toxic ingredients, the cosmetics industry will have no choice but to destroy it.
1. Read the label.
Although Paraben-free is now commonly used in packaging, it is not considered pure. Parabens have been shown to be endocrine disruptors and interfere with the reproductive system, but are trees that hide the forest. Traders can think of sophisticated tricks to let consumers know about buying natural products without having to look at the whole INCI list.
2. Keep a list of ingredients to avoid.
Parabens, perfume, sodium laurethane sulfate (SLS), triclosan, petroleum, PEGS, formaldehyde, siloxane preservatives, DBB dibutyl phthalate, DEA and lauramide DEAM, BHA and BHT, coal dyes.
Add extra propylene crystal, butylene glycol, GMO, ethanolamin, aluminum, mineral oil, chemical sunscreen (retinyl palmitate, titanium dioxide, oxybenzone, methoxycinnamate octyl) and others.
The risks associated with the above components differ from premature aging, changes in DNA, skin allergies, inflammation, loss of immunity, hormonal problems, birth defects, and cancer cases.
We have driven all the above ingredients out of the FEY cosmetics and we are always striving to bring you safe results for your skin and environment.
3. Science and skin care are fully compatible.
Indeed, the organic components can be used to form effective and effective bio-formulations. We value ingredients at FEY, and most of our ingredients are ecologically certified by Ecocert or USDA / NOP (National Organic Program). Both are recognized and respected internationally. Certified products are therefore subject to rigorous microbiological testing and storage.
4. If in doubt, contact your organic care donor.
Is it difficult to identify problematic components? Unplug material using a program like ThinkDirty or an online resource such as EWG. Also, please feel free to contact the brand if you have questions about their products. A trusted brand does not delay answering questions associated with components. Transparency and communication are the best tools for teaching ecological skin care and natural skin care.
