Health Hazards behind Skincare Products

Beauty and wellness matter. In fact, some people are willing to spend lots of money just to attain the beauty they aspire. Unfortunately, most of us are not fully educated with the hazards of those personal care products that we often use to achieve the utmost beauty and well-being we dream of.

Almost all of those beauty and personal care products are composed of synthetic ingredients that are harmful to our body. Worst, focusing on those products that we think might give us the best version of ourselves in terms of appearance are the same products that would likewise be the cause of illnesses pertaining to cardiovascular ailments, reproductive and respiratory diseases even cancer to some extent.

For instance, a research study on permanent hair dye could cause women to have a bladder cancer due to the presence of coal tar on such products.

Alpha Hydroxy Acids are known as AHA and Beta Hydroxy Acids were found on skin care products to eliminate wrinkles, blemishes, blotches and acne scars. However, records would show that the use those products mentioned, would cause burning, swelling and pain.

Similarly, the Phthalates commonly use in most personal care products could cause birth defects and long-term reproductive malady affecting every organ in the male reproductive system and leading issues like low sperm count, major genital deformities and eventually might trigger cancer.

Although there are government agencies administering the safety and health of the products we commonly use in our daily lives like shampoos, lotions, creams, nail polish, hair dyes to name a few, their authority is limited that they cannot even oblige manufacturers to actually reveal all the chemical ingredients of their products.

The risk of using cosmetics, beauty care and personal products actually lie on the consumers. We have to keep in mind that most of those products we apply on our skin are intended to penetrate deep into the skin to get the maximum results. We can say that for the manufacturer it is pure business. The discretion is ours to take.  

That's why we, at Prescribd, put a lot of thought into what ingredients we used for our formulations. Drawing from nature, we stuck to the basics, harnessing the power of Aloe, Honey, Oatmeal, Apple and other natural ingredients.
