Avoid Harmful Toxins in Commercial Skincare Products


There are many people who purchase skin care products as the result of an advertisement, friend’s recommendation or more.  After the purchase they make no effort to read the label and discover what type of substances they will be putting on their skin.  The toxins in commercial skincare products can be dangerous to a person’s skin and overall health.  Many of these substances are cancer causing carcinogens used by the cosmetic industry because they are more cost effective than using natural ingredients.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate (ALS)

When listed on some labels these substances will be described as “derived from coconut” to hide their toxic nature.  SLS and ALS can be found in body cleansers, toothpaste and more.  They have been proven to seriously irritate the skin and build up in the body.  This can cause problems with internal organs such as the heart and liver.

Propylene Glycol (PG) and Butylene Glycol

These two ingredients are so toxic that to handle them in a laboratory environment requires people to wear protective gloves, clothing as well as goggles.  The only way to legally get rid of Propylene Glycol (PG) and Butylene Glycolis is by following EPA guidelines for burying it.

Paraben Preservatives

This is a common ingredient found in skin care products as well as cosmetics and even baby products.  It is used to extend the shelf life of products.  Paraben is very toxic and has caused people to develop bad rashes and have allergic reactions.  According to a study from the UK, high level of parabens was found in 90 percent of breast tumors that were tested.


This is a mineral that can be found in most cosmetic powders.  Research has shown that regular use of talcum powder in the genital area increases the chances of developing ovarian cancer.  Using it regularly on other parts of the body can also cause health problems.
