Skin Care is important because your skin, (the largest organ in the body), is your body’s first and primary line of defense against germs, bacteria, viruses, disease, and environmental intruders.

- Phthalates: These are chemicals produced from oil to make plastic. They are also used as solvents in cosmetic products like nail polishes, perfumes, and hair sprays.
- Parabens: Watch out for these preservatives that are used in a variety of personal-care products. They have been found in breast tumors by scientists, and are known to disrupt normal hormone function in the body. Avoid words like “methyl,” “propyl,” “butyl,” and “ethyl” parabens.
- Talc: This is found in baby powders, talcum powders, and genital deodorant sprays, talc has been linked with ovarian cancer.
- Solvent violet 13, a colourant found in a wide range of consumer products including cosmetics and toys, is harmful to human health at current levels of exposure, according to a draft conclusion from the Canadian government.
- Lead: This was found in more than 60% of popular lipsticks investigated by the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA). While mercury has been an issue with cosmetics manufactured in China, the FDA findings shine a bright light on “trusted” companies such as Revlon, L’Oreal, and Maybelline – bringing cancer-causing ingredients that “weren’t our problem” directly into our local stores.
- Fragrance: These are synthetic fragrances that include 200 unknown chemicals. Companies aren’t required to list those chemicals. Therefore, you have no way of knowing what you’re putting on your skin. According to a 1986 report, 99% of the chemicals used in fragrances are synthetic compounds derived from petroleum, including benzene derivatives, aldehydes and other known toxic ingredients capable of causing cancer.
- Formaldehyde: This is a colorless gas, this is listed by the U.S. National Toxicology Program as “reasonably anticipated to cause cancer.” It can cause allergic reactions, contact dermatitis, and headaches, and is listed in the European Union as toxic and carcinogenic.
- Petrolatum: Listed as mineral oil, liquid paraffin, toluene, or petroleum, petro products have been banned or restricted for use in cosmetics in other countries. Researchers conducting animal studies have theorized that petroleum-derived ingredients in moisturizers may promote skin-cancer tumor growth.
- 1,4 dioxane: The Environmental Working Group found that 43% of body-firming lotions, 36% of facial moisturizers, and 34% of body lotions contain 1,4-dioxane-a chemical by-product produced in cosmetics manufacturing and a known carcinogen. To avoid it, watch for words like “PEG,” “xynol,” “ceterareth,” and “oleth.”
