As much as there are many helpful and soothing natural ingredients in skin care products, there are dangerous artificial ingredients used in some as well. The presence of these harmful artificial ingredients in skin care products does you more harm than good. It is then very important for you to always check the label of the products that you buy. You definitely do not want to see the four dangerous ingredients in skin care products featured below.
Dangerous Ingredients in Skin Care
Many skin care companies use parabens to prevent the growth of yeast, mold, and bacteria in their products. But while parabens protect their skin care products, it does not do anything good for your skin. On the contrary, it brings a lot of harm.
Parabens put women at a heightened risk of breast cancer because of its estrogen-mimicking properties. The skin absorbs parabens easily. Studies show that this chemical is always present in the biopsy samples of breast tumors.
Fortunately, all Gold Elements products are paraben-free. All of the moisturizing creams from Gold Elements, starting from our basic products to the very luxurious Gold Elements Mega Line collection, don’t contain this harmful ingredient. Gold Elements does not use artificial ingredients in skin care products.
2. Sodium Laureth Sulfate or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
This ingredient is very common among facial washes. Sodium Laureth Sulfate or SLES is responsible for the suds or foams that soaps, cleansers, shampoos, and body washes produce. SLES is never present in the Aurarius Professional Cleansing Foam or the Gold Elements Intensive Multi Task Facial Cleanser.
Instead of the harmful Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Gold Elements uses the more natural alternative, which is Sodium Coceth Sulfate. Sodium Coceth Sulfate comes from coconut fatty acids that won’t harm your skin.
Formaldehyde is one of the most dangerous ingredients in skin care. It is used as a preservative in cosmetic products in order to prevent bacterial growth. Unfortunately, it has been deemed carcinogenic by the International Agency of Research on Carcinogens or IARC. Most body washes, cleansers, and nail polish treatments contain this dangerous chemical.
None of the products in our nail products contains formaldehyde. The Gold Elements hand and nail cream, as well as the cuticle oil, is made only with the most natural ingredients in skin care. You need not worry about formaldehyde or any other carcinogen whenever you use Gold Elements products.
Phthalates are common plastic products. When added to its production, it increases the flexibility and softness of plastics. Eventually, it found its way to cosmetic products, more particularly in lotions and hair sprays. Like parabens, phthalates increases the risks of breast cancer. It also contributes to heightened chances of reproductive birth defects among males and females.
Again, none of Gold Elements’ creams and lotions contains phthalates. Whether you are using the Intensive Cleaning and Softening Lotion or any one of the dozens of facial creams in the Gold Elements collections, you can be assured that only the most natural ingredients in skin care are used to treat and pamper your skin.
How to Avoid Artificial Ingredients
A very good way to avoid these artificial ingredients in skin care is to stick to using organic and natural skin care products. If in any case you doubt the contents of the product that you would like to buy, read the label. The ingredients list contains everything that you need to know about the cream, moisturizer, lotion, or serum that you want to use.
Scan through the skin care product’s ingredients list and see if it contains any one of the four dangerous ingredients listed above. If it does, then it’s not a natural product and you’re better off not using them. Don’t do anything with products that will harm your body instead of treating or nourishing it.
Another sure-fire way to avoid the artificial ingredient in skin care is to go for luxury products. Luxury skin care products contain top-class ingredients that are backed up with years of studies and research. These products are very different from your drugstore brand. Drugstore brands contain low-end ingredients. Luxury skin care products, on the other hand, have premium contents such as 24k gold, truffles, and white pearls. These are the ingredients that you’ll find in every Gold Element skin care product that you’ll buy.
