Skin protection from cosmetic chemicals
Minimize the amount of chemicals your skin absorbs from cosmetics
It is important to check the ingredients contained in your favorite cosmetics because you may not realize that what you put on your skin can be directly absorbed. It has been found that women can absorb up to five pounds of chemicals from their makeup alone each year. Skin protection from chemical ingredients in cosmetics can help decrease skin irritations and possibly decrease your risk of developing cancer. Some cosmetic ingredients, such as parabens, have been recently linked to cancer.
Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion strengthens the skin's natural barrier, blocking chemicals and irritants and increasing skin protection. When applied before makeup Skin MD Natural can help reduce the amount of chemicals your skin absorbs from cosmetic products.
Skin protection from these chemicals is important
- Benzyl Acetate is a solvent that is used in many cosmetics and personal care products. It is easily absorbed by the skin and has been linked to prostate cancer.
- Benzethonium Chloride is an anti-microbial agent that can be found in moisturizers. It can cause major health issues, as it is an immune system toxicant and possible organ system toxicant. It has also been linked to triggering asthma.
- Parabens are used as a preservative in a number of skin care products to extend their shelf life. They can cause allergic reactions to those with sensitive skin. Even worse, parabens have been linked to breast cancer.
- Petroleum is an inexpensive skin softener found in a number of facial and body care products. Research has shown that petroleum may contain cancer-causing contaminants.
