What are all the chemical not god for skin?
Hello, I have a very sensitive skin. If I use any kind of cosmetic product, I do get rashes. What are all the chemical not god for skin? Please put some light over this.
@pritam Many of the chemicals used today in various skincare and cosmetic products are gaining attention because of the negative effects it can have on our skin and health. Here is a list of the top 8 chemicals to avoid if possible. (Orgaid does not include any harmful chemicals or chemical preservatives for maximal safety of skin health, but has developed a way to naturally preserve the product and effectively deliver beneficial ingredients deeper into skin.)
Parabens: Parabens are used as chemical preservatives in wide array of personal care products such as moisturizers, shampoos, foundations and many more. Over the past few years there has been a huge debate whether parabens are safe to use or not. Some say excessive amount of exposure to parabens may lead to breast cancer, but some argue that daily cosmetic exposure to parabens does not cause you any harm. Basically, everyone’s skin reacts differently depending on various chemicals and skin type. If you would like to take caution, you can definitely find many products without parabens.
Sulfates: Again, one of the ingredients that is widely disputed whether it is safe to use or not. You probably are contacting with sulfates on a daily basis. Sulfates are also found in variety of products from toothpaste to cleansers to also help with foaming. There are a lot of different types of sulfates, but the ones that are used most commonly are sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and sodium laureth sulfate (SLES). Sulfates are known to strip away valuable moisture and protective barriers, irritating the skin more. Some say it causes no problem in small amounts, but others say it can cause cancer when combined with other substances or is heated.
