Natural Skin Care Products, Natural Personal Care Products, Natural Beauty Products and Cosmetics
Personal care products and cosmetics do not need to be approved or reviewed by the FDA before being sold to consumers. The FDA limits its regulations of cosmetics to only the colors that can be used in these products. Cosmetic companies have resisted regulation by the FDA (and other government agencies) and as a result, do not have to report injuries or recalls of their products, other than by voluntary means.
Ingredients found in many cosmetics, beauty, skin and personal care products are harmful and toxic industrial chemicals, including carcinogens, pesticides, reproductive toxins, plasticizers, degreasers, surfactants and hormone disruptors. Much criticism has been aimed at cosmetic companies for misleading consumers by making pseudo-scientific assertions about their products that arenít authenticated by any scientific proof.
As a result of this, there is an increasing awareness of the toxicity of cosmetics, personal and skin care products and a growing consumer demand for those containing natural and environmentally friendly ingredients as opposed to those with harmful and toxic chemicals such as sodium lauryl sulfate, petroleum based products and parabens.
Parabens are a type of preservative widely used in both cosmetics and food products though their use is becoming a more disputed topic because they have slight estrogenic activity, meaning they mimic the effects of estrogen and have been found in breast cancer tumors and are believed to have the ability to cause early puberty in females.
We are in the process of redesigning the packaging for our personal care products and will update this page when we re-launch.
