Beauty can be “Poisonous”


Commonly used chemicals in cosmetics are harmful to human skin:

  • Preservatives (PARABEN): Clog pores, estrogen led breast cancer
  • Mineral Oil: Interferes with the skin’s natural barrier function and damages hydrolipidic film, prevents skin from breathing, slows circulatory function, affects cell generation, accumulates toxins
  • Colour Additives / Synthetic Fragrances: Causes skin allergies, affects central nervous system, leads to headaches and cancer
  • Steroids Hormones: Causes eczema, dermatitis, melanin deposits, roughness, damaged blood capillaries
  • Polyethylene glycol (PEG), mercury, lead, arsenic, nickel and various forms of metals are commonly used in emulsions, moisturisers and whitening products: leads to melanin deposits, brown spots, cancer, can cause liver/kidney deficiencies, anaemia and hair loss, infant deformity
  • Chemical UV Filter: Increases the death rate of skin cells under the sun
  • Common exfoliators and anti-pigmentation products (salicylic acid, chemical peeling, etc): Speeds up aging of skin, lower immunity and resistance towards UV rays/radiation
  • Alcohol: Dry skin, keratin denaturation, fragile and sensitive skin

 

From a TCM perspective, we generally advise users to take note of the above information so as to reduce the detrimental effects caused by prevalent chemical based skincare products in the market.
