Safe Сosmetics: Truth and Myths

Safe Сosmetics: Truth and Myths

When choosing cosmetics consumers carefully examine the product’s package to get the detailed information about its content. All skincare products come with product description that is designed to pique an interest in the particular product and is part of manufacturer’s marketing strategy. However, sometimes data you see on the product label can be misleading. How to figure out whether the cosmetics is natural, what organic cosmetics is bad for your skin and in what cases cosmetics with chemical ingredients is safer than eco cosmetics?

Our team has been researching these issues for a while. Let’s a look into some of the most popular statements about natural personal care and skin care products to figure out what is true and what is just a myth.

Statement №1. Natural, organic and vegan cosmetics are absolute synonyms.

It is a myth. All so called natural cosmetic products do contain synthetic ingredients. The difference is in their concentration. A beauty product that has at least one natural ingredient can be called natural. Products are called organic if they contain at least 95% of certified natural ingredients. Vegan cosmetics may include both natural and organic beauty items that do not contain products of animal origin.

Statement №2. Organic beauty products are not as effective as cosmetics with chemical ingredients added.

This is a myth. Modern organic cosmetics has greatly improved lately. Today organic shampoos foam well and the color palette of decorative cosmetics has become wider (even though there is still a greater selection of beauty products with synthetic ingredients on the market). It should be noted that everything depends on the particular product. Both eco and mass market brands may have products that work just great and those that fail to meet customer expectations. Another factor to consider is individual sensitivity for the particular ingredient. Plant extracts may work better for some people while others achieve the best results thanks to synthetic ingredients. Anyway it would be wrong to underestimate the effectiveness of organic beauty products.

Statement №3. Organic cosmetics can’t cause harm.

This is a myth. The most common misbelief is that all organic beauty products are hypoallergenic. People prone to allergic reactions may have rash, redness and itching of the skin caused by any cosmetics, including organic. Very often vegan beauty products may cause allergic reaction as they contain natural extracts and oils. Nuts, citrus fruit, honey, spices, pollens and specific plants are most common allergens.

Pay special attention to products you use around your eyes, such as Natural & Organic Eyeshadows, as the skin around our eyes is more sensitive and thinner. Make sure you test the new product before applying it on your skin even though you may have had no allergic reactions in the past.

Statement №4. Organic beauty products can replace regular cosmetics in your daily routine.

This is true. Why not? These days there is a great variety of body care products, makeup products, hair and nail care products available for sale, all you need to do is find the products that suit you best. Of course, organic decorative cosmetics won’t impress with such a great variety of shades and textures, but the selection of beauty products offered by the manufacturers is generally enough for everyday makeup.

It is up to you to decide whether you will replace all your beauty products by organic substitutes or combine them in your beauty routine. There is no universal solution for everyone. If you see that the particular product works good why not continue using it.

Statement №5. Good organic cosmetics are not cheap.

It is true. Of course, quality cosmetics are quite expensive and you shouldn’t risk purchasing cheap beauty products as well. Many people think that manufacturers producing organic cosmetics charge for their products too much. But the plant extracts many organic beauty products contain are grown in special ecologically clean conditions that eliminate negative impact of exhaust fumes and other harmful factors. Organic cosmetics are considered to be the premium quality and can’t be cheap because the cost of production of pure organic personal care products is high.

Statement №6. Homemade beauty products are the best alternative to organic cosmetics.

It is a myth. The main difference of organic cosmetics from handmade beauty products is in the ingredients used. If the product is organic it means that the ingredients used in it were grown in ecologically safe condition. But when you buy ingredients for your handmade mask in the store you can’t be sure if they were grown without using pesticides.

Another difference is in the production process. Few people have special tools, a mixer, spatulas and sterile workplace while major manufacturers can guarantee sterile conditions during the production process. In addition, it is hard to measure the ingredients without special tools and get the proportions right.

If you want to make a homemade clay mask or some other DIY beauty product –why not? But when it comes to dealing with more elaborate formulas you had better leave it to the professionals.

How to Choose Quality Beauty Products?

Make sure you carefully read the information provided by the manufacturer about the product before making a purchase. People may have different reaction on various beauty products so you may trust the professional who will help you choose the right product for you.

Every woman wants to become even more beautiful than she is and this is the reason why lots of women have so many beauty products in their bathroom cabinet to look better. But to look good you don’t need to spend much money on personal care and beauty products!

There is no need to purchase all beauty products in expensive beauty stores. The most expensive luxury cosmetics from the leading cosmetic companies may often have the same ingredients as those found in the cheaper brands. Advanced technologies have made it possible to enrich beauty products with the same vitamins, coenzymes and other substances that can help us stay young longer. These days most beauty products can be purchased at affordable price in supermarkets and drugstores that offer a wide selection of certified products.

Do remember - taking care of your body make sure you begin with taking care of your soul and heart. Otherwise no beauty product will work. Be beautiful!
