Dangerous ingredients hidden in cosmetics

Although they promise to restore our youthful appearance, tighten our skin, erase wrinkles, the fact is that certain substances from comet products do us more harm than good. Here’s what you need to pay special attention to.

At the end of the story, large corporations that produce cosmetics want only good earnings, so instead of working on development and research, they often sell products that contain cheap substances whose impact on health is very questionable.

The next time you buy your favorite face cream, body milk or something else, read the composition well and if you find only one of the five ingredients we will list, put it back on the shelf and try something new.

Parabens are used in cosmetics as a preservative to prevent the formation of bacteria. Controversy over their use has arisen because these same parabens have been found in breast cancer tumors and have shown poor ability to mimic estrogen, which plays a major role in the development of breast cancer. Parabens have been shown to accelerate aging and damage DNA.

Phthalates are used in cosmetics as a means of helping other substances to dissolve. Phthalates are known to cause reproductive and developmental toxicities which can increase the possibility of health problems and lead to cancer.

Triclosan is used as an antibacterial agent, and is believed to affect hormone function, and may cause an allergic reaction such as skin irritation. Triclosan can also have a detrimental effect on living organisms in water, because it reaches rivers, lakes and the sea through drainage. This substance increases resistance to antibiotics.

Mineral oil or kerosene is used as a moisturizer and is a very common ingredient in perfumes. Petroleum is a bioproduct obtained by distilling gasoline from crude oil. Since kerosene is a waste in this process, it is much more expensive to dispose of it than to buy it, which is why it has found its purpose in the cosmetics industry. It has been shown to potentially close pores and reduce lung function which can lead to inflammation.

If we pay attention to labels and stop buying products that contain harmful substances instead of succumbing to cheap marketing tricks, even large companies will not have much choice and will have to change something. Start on your own, tell your friends and mom, start a little revolution.
