Dangerous synthetic chemicals in cosmetics that we must AVOID!!!

"Most of the synthetic chemicals around us are toxic. We hear the word "toxic" so often that it has lost its meaning. But "toxic" means poisonous. Anything that is "capable of destroying life".

"Surrounded as we are with toxic products, it is important to study the labels, take into account the consequences they have on our health and throw them away, preferring other safer products". Nina Silver PhD

By law (1/11/98) all cosmetics must list all the ingredients they contain on their label. Most consumers have no idea what the ingredients of various products mean and where they come from, which are only herbal and innocent ...Among the 10,000 chemicals that are used in cosmetics without breaking the law, there are plenty of highly toxic and dangerous substances.

Start reading the labels - avoid the real petrochemicals:

They are used to inhibit microbes and increase the shelf life of a product. Although they are known to be very toxic, they are widely used. They have caused allergies and dermatitis. Brunel University scientific research has proven that they can be absorbed through the skin. Inside the body they act like a foreign female hormone causing a decrease in sperm strength, testicular cancer, penile deformities and other disorders in the reproductive system in men and breast cancer in women.

Nylon12 (Polyamide) - Nylon 12 - Polyamide

It causes dermatitis, irritations, eye burns and chronic vision problems. It is among the ingredients that can cause carcinogenesis.

Paraffiniun Liquidium - Paraffin - Petroleum Derivative

It is used in many cosmetics, lipsticks, creams, etc. Extremely toxic. It causes eye irritation, in contact with the skin it causes skin problems such as dermatitis. It also causes headaches, dizziness, anesthesia. Similar symptoms to mineral oil.

Petrolatum - Petroleum - Mineral oil

It is a mineral oil that causes many problems when used on the skin. It causes photosensitivity, tends to hinder the functioning of the body's natural mechanism and leads to dehydration and peeling of the skin. We buy a product that causes negative reactions, which it purports to relieve. It is used because of the very low cost and has similar symptoms to mineral oil.

Polyvinyl Purrolidone (PVP) - Polyvinylpyrrolidone

Harmful by inhalation or by absorption through the skin. Causes eye irritation. It irritates the mucous membranes and the upper respiratory system. It belongs to category C with indication of teratogenicity in animals. It is included among the components that can cause carcinogenesis. Avoid contact with the product and inhalation.

Propylene Glycol - Propylene glycol

A complex petrochemical mixture used as a humectant. It is a cheap and widely available ingredient. It is known to cause allergic reactions. It is a primary skin irritant even in a very small percentage of concentration. Its function is to absorb moisture from the skin by "stealing" it from the lower layer of the skin. It is widely used in industrial products such as brake fluid and car antifreeze. This particular product is reported to cause liver abnormality or even kidney damage.

Propyl Gallate - Propyl - Ester of gallic acid

Antioxidant that causes allergic reactions. It is toxic.
PUP/VA Copolymer PUP/VA- Copolymer.
A petroleum chemical, used in hair spray, gels and other cosmetics. It is considered toxic because molecules of this component have been found in people with lung sensitivity.

Quaternium - Poly - Quaternium

It is an ammonia derivative used in cosmetics. Causes eye irritation, hair loss, skin peeling and severe allergic reactions. It is toxic.

Sodium C14-16 Oletin Sulfonate - Olefin Sulfide

They are used in shampoos and other cosmetics as moisturizers. They are petroleum derivatives and are toxic.

Stearalkonium Chloride - Stearatic Chloride

A chemical used in hair conditioner and face creams. Originally created by the fabric softener industry. It is much cheaper than herbal extracts that really help hair and skin. It is toxic.

Sodium Hydroxide - Caustic Sodium

It is contained in powders, soaps, shampoos, hair straighteners, shaving foams, aqueous creams, etc. Absorbs water quickly. It is used for cleaning drains. Its use for cleaning drains in concentrations above 10% has been banned in America. It causes dermatitis while its introduction into the body causes vomiting, physical exhaustion and collapse of the body. Inhaling it causes damage to the lungs.

Sodium Lauryl Sulphate

It can be synthetic (from petroleum) or of plant origin (from coconut), depending on the company's philosophy. It is used in shampoos and other cosmetics as a cleanser. The chemical causes eye irritation, skin rashes and itching, hair loss, dandruff and allergic reactions.

Triethanolamine (TEA) - Triethanolamine

It is often used in cosmetics as a PH balancer. It is also used in many fatty acids in salt (stearate) which is then used as a base for emulsion. This ingredient causes allergic reactions, eye problems, hair and skin dehydration. It can be toxic if used over a long period of time.

Fragnance - Parfum - Synthetic fragrances

Synthetic fragrances used to make a beautiful product should be avoided at all costs, as should hair dyes. Listed as FD&C or D&C or CI 77496. Usually derived from tar. According to the World Health Organization, they are factors that cause cancer. They also cause skin diseases and decrease oxygen levels in the body. If they are contained in a cosmetic we should not use it.

Carbomer - Carbomer

A resin used to stabilize and thicken cosmetics. It is toxic and causes allergic reactions

Tallow (Sodium Tallowed Tallow Amine Oxide)

Fat from fatty tissues of cattle and sheep. It is widely used in common soaps, shaving foams, lipsticks, shampoos, etc. It is a tasteless and odorless ingredient and can cause irritation and eczema. It is noted that toxins and dioxins accumulate in large quantities in the fatty tissues of animals, with the result that the use of this ingredient in the various products poses a risk of transferring the dangerous chemicals to the human body.

The above facts, validly proven and scientifically accredited, constitute a very small part of our wrong choices regarding the care of the human body, which of course concerns both sexes. The aforementioned substances are components of products with wide daily use by the whole family. We accumulate in our body substances that are highly toxic and incompatible with the nature of the human body, which of course has harmful consequences (direct as well as indirect...) on it. Having been informed of such information as the above, we have no justification for using cosmetics with the most dangerous synthetic chemical ingredients. We must love our body, believe in its potential and take care of it with products that are perfectly compatible with it, with products made of plant ingredients, which nature provides us in abundance.

Don't put anything on your skin that you would be afraid to consume, because the result is the same.

Let's take a closer look at the most known toxic ingredients and their side effects:

Acetone - Acetone

The well-known acetone, which is used as a solvent for nail polishes, is included in lists of dangerous substances. It causes dry mouth, dizziness, nausea, difficulty speaking and in extreme cases coma. It acts as a central nervous system depressant

Aluminum Allantoinate, Aluminum Carbonate, Aluminum Chloride - Aluminum Compositions

A very common ingredient used in deodorants and antiperspirants. Aluminum formulations can literally stop the body's natural exfoliation process. They can shrink sweat glands and block pores. They can cause allergic reactions and are blamed for Alzheimer's disease. We must avoid them and especially women where the chemicals they put in the armpits reach through the glands in the chest and accumulate.

Ammonium Hydrohide Compounds - Ammonia compositions

Many ammonia compositions are used in cosmetics. They are toxic and cause allergic reactions in many people. Long-term contact can cause coughing, respiratory arrest resulting in pulmonary edema.. We must avoid them..

Benzophenone - Benzene, Benzylphenyl, Ketone

It is widely used in sunscreens, shampoos, cleaners and perfumes. Irritating to eyes, skin and respiratory system. Harmful by inhalation, ingestion and absorption through the skin. It is included in the list of dangerous chemical substances recently published by the world organization for nature WWF and its residues were found in breast milk...

There are serious indications that it is a carcinogenic substance (pancreatic cancer). Causes eye and respiratory irritation, coughing and systemic reactions. Toxic.

Benzyl Alcohol - Benzyl Alcohol

Petrochemical ingredient used in cosmetics. It is absorbed by the skin very easily. It can cause eye irritation, headaches, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, drop in blood pressure, CNS depression and in extreme cases respiratory arrest and death.

BHT: Butulated Hydroxytoluene

It is a synthetic component (from petroleum). It is contained in water creams, moisturizing serums and generally in cosmetics as an antioxidant. It is extremely photosensitive and causes great irritation with exposure to the sun. It causes eye and skin irritations, disorders and irritations in the digestive and respiratory systems and by extension in the heart. It can also cause reproductive problems and disorders in the fetus. Its large accumulation causes gastroenteritis, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea and general extreme health problems. Suspected of carcinogenicity at risk level 3. Contains the dangerous ingredients Cresol and Phenol, ingredients blamed for many health problems and environmental pollution.

Cocamide DEA - Cocamide Hydroxycthyl

A blend of ethanolamines from coconut acids used for sudsing and to thicken cosmetics or shampoos. But because it is mixed with synthetic chemicals it can cause allergic reactions and dryness in the skin and hair. It is toxic.

Diethanolamine (DEA) - Diethanolamine

Often used in cosmetics to balance PH. It is also used in many fatty acids to treat the acid, which is then used as a base in the emulsion. Causes allergic reactions, eye and skin irritations. Toxic if used over a long period of time. Possible carcinogen.

DMDM Hydantoin

Used in skin and nail care products, causing allergies, severe pain and cancer.

EDTA Ethylenedinitrilo - Edetic Acid

Synthetic chemical used as a water softener and as an antioxidant. It causes allergic reactions and is toxic. In fact, the World Health Organization classifies it as a teratogenic substance.

Fluoride - Fluoride

It's poison. Decades ago fluoride was used as a poison for mice and rats. It destroys acetylcholine (a substance that is responsible for the transmission of the nervous system) so that the feeling of pain is not transmitted from the teeth to the brain. The less acetylcholine there is in the body, the less memory capacity results. Alzheimer's disease is due to reduced production of acetylcholine. 50% of the fluoride is absorbed by the blood vessels in the mouth and accumulates mainly in the bones and teeth. Its effect on the bones is immediate and leads to osteoporosis and arthritis. In World War 2 it was used by the Germans on prisoners with the intention of having reduced perception, reactions and thinking. Since 1990 fluoride has been listed as a carcinogen by the US National Cancer Institute with evidence of bone cancer and osteosarcoma. The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology has classified fluoride as an unacceptable dental drug due to its high toxicity. Research has shown that if a child consumes 50ml of toothpaste containing fluoride they can die.

Formaldehyde

It is used as a preservative and germicide. Its derivatives are usually used in cosmetics because it smells very strong. (Used in embalming dead birds and animals). It causes allergic reactions, is definitely toxic, possibly carcinogenic.

Imidazolidinyl Urea - Diazolidinyl Urea – Imidazolinate Urea

These are the most commonly used preservatives after Parabens. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, they cause dermatitis while at temperatures above 10 degrees Celsius they release formalin (see above). These chemicals are toxic.

Isopropyl Alcohol - Propyl Alcohol - Propanol

Petroleum chemical. It is used in face creams. It irritates the eyes, affects the central nervous system, irritates the skin, causes redness and pain. By breathing this substance we have symptoms of dizziness, headaches, anesthesia and even death. People with skin sensitivities, kidney, liver, heart and circulatory problems are more vulnerable toxic. May cause teratogenesis.

Magnesium Nitrate - Magnesium Sodium Salt

Hazardous flammable material. Causes irritation and burns to the skin. With breathing we have a strong cough and weak breathing. It causes eye irritation and even temporary vision problems. Chronic exposure can cause weakness, depression, headaches and mental problems. It reduces the ability of the blood to carry oxygen to the various organs of the body.

Mineral Oil - Mineral Oil

It is found in lip, eye, hand, body creams, water creams, make-up, hair products, etc. It covers the skin with a thin layer, preventing the ability to breathe, eliminate toxic substances, hydrate and create new healthy cells. Common reactions are black spots, pimples, dehydration, photosensitivity (hypersensitivity to the sun, creating freckles) and premature aging of the skin. It also causes cardiac disorders, allergic disorders, immune system disorders, kidney damage and breathing difficulties.
