Is it dangerous or useful?
The perception of active ingredients in cosmetic products often differs among both professionals and users. Many ingredients have proven useful decades ago, but have now been replaced by more modern ones and, of course, there are active ingredients that have long been a good solution to certain problems. However, due to their preservative, foaming or water repellent effects, several substances that cause irritation in the sensitive are still included in the ingredients of everyday products. Over the years, the number of body care products and thus the chemicals that come into contact with our skin has also increased, therefore, skin sensitivity, rash, redness are also more common as unpleasant side effects.
Tinted lips, powder, foundation
Isopropyl myristate was one of the most successful cosmetic ingredients of the 1960s. Today it is not so modern, but due to its many favorable properties, it is still an important ingredient, for example in lipsticks: it provides the lubricity of creams and powders. It increases the penetration of the active ingredient into the skin, helps the substance applied to the skin to pass through the stratum corneum. Its disadvantage is that it has a comedogenic effect, so it contributes to the development of blackheads and acne. Therefore, a thorough skin cleansing is recommended in the evening after using a product containing such an ingredient!
High degree of foaming
The foaming of shampoos, bubble baths, toothpastes and face milks is provided by Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. Foaming is used in cosmetics in smaller amounts and in cleaning products in larger amounts to facilitate cleaning. Irritant, one of the most potent allergens. It is worth reading the list of ingredients in the products and using as few of the formulations that contain this active ingredient as possible.
Soft skin with lanolin
Lanolin is made from wool grease by refining and purification. It rains quickly, so it’s important to preserve it. Recently, the number of people allergic to lanolin has increased, which should be taken into account when using the products, and it is worth buying good quality preparations, as the problem can be caused mostly by improperly cleaned products containing harmful residues. Beneficial effects: it is easily and quickly absorbed into the skin, it replenishes the lost moisture of the skin, it helps to prevent dehydration, therefore it is also a common ingredient in baby creams.
Stick to unique and proven products!
Today, many products with natural or bio-labels are available, from cosmetics to household cleaners, so everyone can find the right one for them. It’s good to stick to a product that has been proven for a long time and doesn’t cause complaints, and in addition, personalized cosmetics that best suit your own skin type are the ideal solution to avoid unpleasant symptoms.
