Did you know that there are many face skincare products on the market that contain ingredients that are suspect or dangerous. Sadly it is true and it’s not just restricted to face skin care creams. It is in fact the case that a wide range of cosmetics, personal and beauty products, shampoos and soaps contain ingredients that may not be good to your health or for your skin.
I give you a quick example. A recent study found lead in over 50% of big brand lipsticks tested in the study. I’m sure you know that lead is not at all good your health. It accumulates in your body and can have nasty consequences for your health. And yet major well-known worldwide big brand named companies are still using lead in their personal products such as lipsticks. Of course they argue that there is not much lead there however personally I would prefer to be none. The problem is serious enough that in many countries, particularly in the European Union, lead is now banned in lipsticks.
The same applies to many skincare products. There are suspect ingredients in many anti aging products that in some cases are “known to cause cancer”. It is not just restricted to lead.
How can it be that many face skincare products contain suspect ingredients? Doesn’t the FDA protect us against dangerous ingredients in products which we put on or into our body? No it doesn’t and it is not required to. It isn’t required to test personal products such as skincare products and it’s not required to satisfy itself that products are safe to use.
So if you’re looking to improve your skin and to find a range of face skincare products that are not only effective but are also safe to use on your skin how you do so? Fortunately there are niche skincare companies that produce natural face skincare products with an emphasis on safety as well as efficacy. They produced products that are made up a wide range of naturally occurring ingredients that are firstly known to be safe and are secondly known to be very effective at promoting optimum skin health.
He is an example of two of the ingredients that are used in such natural face skin care products.
1. Phytessence Wakame. Phytessence Wakame he is a seaweed found around the coast of Japan. It is packed with a very wide range of essential vitamin and minerals necessary for optimum skin health. It is no coincidence that Japanese women have the best skin in the world and that Phytessence Wakame is a big part of the Japanese diet.
2. Cynergy TK. This is a patented product made from the wool of New Zealand sheep. The principal benefit of using face skin care products that have Cynergy TK as an essential ingredient is in its ability to stimulate the skin to produce collagen and elastin. As your skin ages it loses it’s store of collagen and elastin which up to skin proteins essential for maintaining skin elasticity. A reduction in skin elasticity leads to skin sagging, fine lines around the mouth and eyes, wrinkles and other signs of poor skin health. This is because the skin gradually loses its ability to replace elastin and collagen which is lost with ageing because the skins ability to produce more collagen and elastin is degraded with age.
The traditional way that this problem is tackled in mainstream skincare products is to add collagen and elastin to the bottles that are found on the shelves of the department stores. But it has been known for some time that the molecule size of collagen and elastin molecules is too large to enter the skin and therefore these proteins just remain on the surface. So why would these companies put collagen and elastin in the bottles? Because they know that consumers who see this listed on the label will buy the bottles.
It’s a sad indictment on our corporate philosophy that major companies producing products that so many women use every day are prepared to put ingredients in their products that are suspect to the health of their customers. However we are fortunate that there are small companies that are prepared to tackle the problem and to produce products that are not only very effective but also very safe to use. It is possible to buy natural face skincare products that are safe to use, worked very effectively, and are cost competitive.
However these small niche companies cannot compete with the big brands in the normal way. They cannot compete against saturation television advertising because they do not have the marketing budget. Therefore these companies, one small niche skincare company in particular that manufactures excellent safe and effective face skincare products chooses to compete on product quality rather than on marketing budget.
And to prove their commitment to their own products they even offer a moneyback guarantee on all their face skincare range. Try getting that from one of the big brands.
