There is a way to tell if a skin care products company is committed to using safe ingredients.
I’ve talked quite a bit here about some of the ingredients that are used in cosmetics, skin care and anti aging products. And about how many of them are suspected of causing unwanted health effects to users, and how at least one of these cosmetics ingredients is listed as “known to cause cancer”.
So it’s pretty clear that there are some dangerous ingredients in skin care products and anti aging products and cosmetics.
If this is news to you then you need to read some more of my pages, starting with this one about natural skin care.
And you can find quite a few references to some suspect ingredients in Wikipedia too.
So if there are dangerous ingredients in some skin care products how do you know whether the company that makes your skin care and anti aging products is one committed to producing safe cosmetics or not?
Because some are, and some are not.
You need to know about the Campaign For Safe Cosmetics.
This is an organization committed to doing all it can to promote the use of safe ingredients in cosmetics. And they have a database of companies that have signed their campact for safe cosmetics.
Signing their compact for safe cosmetics pledges the company who signs “to not use chemicals that are known or strongly suspected of causing cancer, mutation or birth defects in their products and to implement substitution plans that replace hazardous materials with safer alternatives in every market they serve.”
You’ll know if you read regularly here that I consider the niche skin care company located in New Zealand called Xtend Life to be the best in the world for safe, and effective skin care and anti aging products for men and women.
So I just thought I’d let you know that Xtend Life is a signatory to the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics compact. As such it has pledged itself to producing cosmetics and skin care and anti aging product that are safe for consumers to use.
And that’s worth knowing.
Why don’t you see which company makes the skin care products or cosmetics that you use now by checking on the bottle.
Then see if they have signed the Campaign For Safe Cosmetics pledge? Read the rest of this entryWritten by - Natural Skin Health
