Natural is the new GMO in cosmetics. Companies use the word natural to market and sell their entire product line when in fact these products are anything but natural.

Methylparaben, Propylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Imidazalidol Urea, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Octyl Stearate, and Fragrance…It is not natural.

So what should you do to protect yourself from dangerous unnatural skin care products? Always read and research the ingredients. One good way to do this is via a website called Skin Deep.

Federal law allows the cosmetics industry to put unlimited amounts of chemicals into personal care products with no required testing, no monitoring of health effects, and inadequate labeling requirements. So don’t bee fooled by the word “Natural” on the front of a product. Always read and research the ingredients on the label.
