4 Dangerous Chemicals Found in Most Skin Care Products

There’s a big problem in the skin care industry.

Most of the products out there almost always contain several chemicals that have been proven to cause anything from acne, skin rashes and even cancer!

Some of them, like parabens, have been shown to maybe cause tumors and other problems. Even though it’s a maybe, it’s not a risk I want to take, do you?

The problem stems from greed. Skin care companies want to make more money, so they use cheap filler ingredients that extend the shelf life of their products.

Good for them. Not so good for you and me.

Why Most Skin Care Products Are Downright Dangerous

Like I mentioned above, most of the care products you see are filled with chemicals like parabens, mineral oil, fragrances, and dioxanes, just to name a few.

What do these chemicals actually do?

  • Parabens are widely used as a preservative in almost all skin care products. Studies suggest they may cause cancer and interfere with your body’s endocrine system. They may also cause rashes and allergic reactions. However, further studies are needed to form solid conclusions.
  • Mineral Oil coats your skin to keep in moisture. It clogs your pores, stops your body from eliminating toxins, which encourages acne and other skin problems. It can also cause photosensitivity, cancer, premature aging, and dryness.
  • Fragrances may smell nice, but did you know that the term ‘fragrance’ can refer to up to 4,000 separate chemicals and ingredients? Many of those have been shown to be toxic or even carcinogenic. They can cause a host of problems and most of them have not been proven safe, such as phthalataes.
  • Dioxanes (or 1,4-Dioxane) are widely used in our skin care products today. Did you know that this chemical is known to the state of California to cause cancer? That begs the question, why are skin care companies still using it in their products?

What to Do About It

The only thing you can do is educate yourself about what is going on. Learn to avoid the chemicals that are being put in not only our skin care products, but shampoos, soaps, and other household items.

There are a lot of great natural alternatives out there, so do your research. When everyone votes with their dollars and only buys what is safe and effective, the big cat skin care companies will have to adapt, or go bankrupt.

When you lessen the chemical load on your skin, your body will be able to breathe, which naturally means less acne, and fewer skin problems.

The only problem is that most people don’t know about what is going on.

That is what I am going to change.

Thanks for sharing these information. I’ve found it to be very helpful. I also want to share a tip on how to be acne free. One of the best treatment would be by making our liver healthy and stronger, our liver will be able to handle any amount of hormones or blood toxins that can cause acne. Just a tip to stay healthy while being acne free. Hope this helps.

It never fails to amaze me how the cosmetics & pharmaceutical industries continue to rip acne suffers off providing them with useless products in order to fuel cyclical consumption. Think how many billions are made from selling rubbish like Benzoyl Peroxide or using Tetracycline antibiotics. They can never cure the acne just provide temporary relief if it can even be called that.

Hello all !
I am new to forums that discuss Acne and other skin imperfections. I have been suffering for many years and sometimes almost given up on mingling with other people bacause of my looks. I can never talk to anyone unless I feel that the person is looking at my ugly blackheads, whiteheads and scars.
I write to day because I am stuck. I heard last week of a new formula that was so powerful that a person with my skin problems would get rid off the acne in just 2 or 3 months and could stay acne free by using the formula once a month. But the person that told me this had forgotten where this formula was obtained from. The only thing she remembered was “wonderful scandinavia”.
Has anyone of you people heard about this fomula ? I really would appreciate the info if this is as good as the story was.

I found this program around the middle of September 2011. My face had began to break out in May 2011 after I stopped taking birth control. It got really bad, and I had never in my life had to deal with anything this bad before. Of course there were the occasional breakouts, but nothing this drastic. It was horrible and embarrassing and just destroyed me. As soon as I found this program, I started to follow the tips. I ate organic & grass-fed meat, eggs, fish, butter, coconut oil, took cod liver oil, took epsom salt baths, did 2 coffee enemas, and followed many other suggestions on this website. I read the success stories to keep my hopeful. However, I saw little to no results after 3 months. After 4 months, still no major improvement. It was so hard for me to keep on going and stick with this, because I saw no real improvements. Finally, it is April 10, 2012 and my face is so incredibly clear I cannot believe it. After a little over 6 months, it was almost as if everything just turned around and over night my face cleared up! I just wanted to post this for other people who may be following the correct steps, and just not seeing any results so far. Hang in there! It does get better. It took me over 6 months, but my body finally corrected itself and the acne cleared up. Everyone is different, and it takes more or less time for certain people. But if you have hit a 3 month mark with no difference, please keep on going with it. It may take a lot of time – but in the end it will be worth it. Thanks for this website, and all the knowledge you’ve posted!!!

Hi,

thanks for the good info. I just found out about the consequences of dry skin in having Acne and it makes perfect sense. The body has its own mechanisms to fight back when something is wrong and, in case of dry skin, it is producing more skin oil than it should. This will lead to blocked pores, which leads to infections as the body cannot cleanse the skin.

Since learning this I have been much more aware of the components of any products I use to avoid having anything that tends to dry the skin.

How can i buy the book? I’m from the Philippines. Is it available in our country? If so, how much is it? Where specifically can I find it?
