Dirty Secrets Cosmetic Companies Don’t Want You to Know About Most Skin Care Anti Wrinkle Creams
They say ignorance is bliss, however when it comes to skin care anti wrinkle cream and lotions and many other cosmetic products, the road of ignorance is littered with stories of regret and bad skin.
Ok, let me get the point.
Most of the anti wrinkle creams and lotions we use are made from very dangerous chemicals; some of which have the possibility of being classified as fatal. The shocking thing is that the cosmetic companies never ever warn you about some of the side effects the ingredients they use in their products could have on your skin.
For instance did you know that mineral oil, which is a by-product of petroleum, is used in many anti aging cream and lotions despite the fact that it can cause premature aging, skin dryness and chapping. I know for sure that i have used many skin care anti wrinkle cream that contained mineral oil in the past.
And nines times out of ten those same products that i was using with the intention to look much younger actually accelerated the rate at which my skin aged. Ironic isn’t it!?
You’re probably wondering why is that cosmetic companies use such harmful chemicals in the products they sell us?
Most of the motive is profit based. For instance, mineral oil is used because it is cheap.
Other cheap chemicals that are used include parabens, toluene and Phenol carbonic acid. There are however thousand more!
How to protect yourself
The best way to protect yourself from the possible dangers we face when we use skin care products, is to research better alternative ingredients to look for in the anti wrinkle creams and lotions that we use. Most of the safer and more effective anti aging ingredients are natural, so going organic is a good start.
