If you look at the ingredients of most skin-care products you own or
almost all "healthy" and expensive skin-care products sold in any store,
you will find a combination of the following dangerous, chemical and
synthetic ingredients. Please
keep in mind that when you use ANYTHING on your skin or hair, ALL of
the ingredients absorb into your body. Skin absorption is so potent
that an increasing number of medicines are in patch form.
Applying creams and oils is NO DIFFERENT
from eating them, because they enter the blood-stream regardless if
they are ingested in the mouth or absorbed through the skin!
1) Methyl, Propyl, Butyl, and Ethyl Paraben-
combination of these synthetic ingredients are in almost EVERY skin
and hair product made today. Widely known to be highly toxic and cause
allergic/skin reactions. Companies use this dangerous ingredient,
because it is extremely cheap and extends the shelf life of the product
by inhibiting microbial growth.
2) Propylene Glycol-
Petroleum by-product is a synthetic ingredient used as a humectant.
Also used as an INDUSTRIAL ANTI-FREEZE to de-ice airplanes!!! This
toxic ingredient causes many allergic reactions. Research data states
that through skin contact it can cause "liver abnormalities and kidney
3) DMDM Hydrantoin-
A Petro-chemical used as an ANTI-FREEZE in cars.
4) Sodium Laurel Sulfate-
highly toxic synthetic substance (used for foaming abilities) causes
urinary tract, bladder and kidney infections, genital disorders, eye
irritations, skin rashes, hair loss, scalp scurf similar to dandruff,
and allergic reactions.
5) Synthetic Colors-
as FD&C or D&C, followed by a color number such as FD&C Red
6. These highly toxic substances are usually coal-tar based and have
been linked as cancer causing agents.
6) Triethanolamine (TEA)/Diethanolamine (DEA)-
to adjust the pH balance, but toxic and causes eye problems, and
dryness of skin and hair. DEA has been linked with kidney, liver and
other organ damage according to several government-funded research. One
study found that the topical application of DEA in rodents resulted in
anemia, kidney degeneration, and nerve damage to the brain and spinal
cord. (Melnick et al., 1994) Even more disturbing was that several
animals died before the study ended. Approximately 200 million pounds
of DEA are produced annually in the U.S., most of which goes into
personal care products. (USITC, 1990).
7) Imidazolidinyl Urea and Diazolidinyl Urea-
as a a preservative, but a primary cause of contact dermatitis. You
might see these toxic chemicals under the names Germall II and Germall
115, which release formaldehyde at just over 10°.
8) Behentrimonium Chloride-
ammonia compound. Ingestion can be fatal. Concentrations as low
as0.1% can be irritating to the eyes and cause necrosis (tissue death)
of mucus membranes.
9) Titanium, Zirconium, Benzalkonium, Bismuth, Antimony (*1), Barium (*2), Aluminum, Tin, Chromium, Benzene & PCBs-
to Dr. Hulda Reghi Clark, all of these ingredients are extremely
dangerous. *1 - Breast cancer cases show Titanium, Zirconium,
Benzalkonium, Bismuth, Antimony, and Aluminum accumulation in the
breast. *2 -Barium is described in the Merck Index as a "caution". ALL
water or acid soluble Barium is POISONOUS! 10ed. P.139, 1983.
