OH DEAR!!!!!!


In common use in todays cosmetics there are 5 principal ingredients that cause wrinkles. That’s right research has shown the danger of using these ingredients but they are cheap and add to the smooth texture and shelf life of the product. We often talk about how many manufacturers use ingredients which fail to nourish and soothe the skin but to actually damage the skin is another thing altogether. But when you think about it how many food products are given long and satisfying shelf life by destroying their nutritional content?? Believe it or not it could be as high as 80% of foods which are processed in any way. So these ingredients actually create fine lines leading to more wrinkles and dryness in the future. When you are trying to look better and younger.

To help you avoid those products that will only derail your anti-aging efforts, we’ve nominated five key ingredients that you need to avoid if you want to care to your skin.

Sulfates: These are harsh, corrosive, and drying ingredients used in floor scrubbing solutions, engine degreasers, and car-wash soaps. They cause skin irritation and corrosion, and over time, lead to increased dryness.You will find them in your cleansers, body washes, shampoos, and even in your toothpastes. So avoid sodium laureth sulfate and sodium lauryl sulfate.

Alcohols also are used as a drying ingredient as they evaporate quickly when exposed to the air. They strip away the skins natural oils which leads to irritation and premature ageing. Found in most mass production anti-aging skin products you may find ingredients like SD alcohol, ethanol, methanol, benzyl alcohol, isopropyl alcohol, and ethyl alcohol.

Mineral oil sounds ok but it comes from petroleum and clogs the pores of the skin, hindering the skin’s natural ability to get rid of toxins. With extended use, it can encourage acne and also irritate and inflame skin.

Actually linked by many studies to cancer you will also find many Ammonia compounds such as DEA, MEA, TEA. These ingredients are drying to the skin and hair causing allergic reactions including redness and inflammation. All of these results produce an overall ageing effect.

Last but not least are the chemical sunscreens which actually block the absorbance of vitamin D. The government and media promotion in almost every country is almost fraudulent but generates income. It is true of course that the human skin was not designed to be burnt. But when it was designed there were trees everywhere so average sun exposure was unlikely to burn and also they did not wear sunglasses. Sunglasses look great but it is the eyes job to prepare the skin for expected damage from the sun. so we go out into the full sun now and our skin thinks it is going to rain!!.

Oxybenzone, benzophenone-3, and octyl methoxycinnamate often actually encourage free radical damage when exposed to suns rays. We will follow up with much more detailed information on sun screens sometime in the near future.

This information has come from a study of talks by the top medical research and treatment teams in the world. Sorry again but the only way is to go straight to the cosmetics cupboard and throw it all out. Well if you have the occasional bottle of essential oil you can leave that but the rest has to go. Then go to organic markets and find the suppliers. Now we will list suppliers in these pages in the next weeks from all around the world. But what you need is organic and natural. Then give it some time to detoxify the skin and allow the normal flow of nutrients to flow in and out of the skin for a few weeks. Then you are starting to look beautiful.


All the fuss about organic is largely money making But it is doing the world a big favour. Without organic the big money makers in industries such as chemicals and drugs and junk food would run amok with no constraints. Although organic is appealing to a small percentage of the people, it is everybody’s face every day and slowly but surely more people are at least aware of what it means. It is reminding people of the massive degree to which the quality of consumables and cosmetics have sunk in their reference to real health markers. So lets all support organic by buying organic at least occasionally where it applies to products we are particularly concerned about.

In the world of cosmetics it is critical because those chemicals are destroying your beauty and your brain and your reproductive parts every time you use them. Also include suntan lotion and sun blockers here as very dangerous. Ok the skeptics need to wait until they see the damage while most readers here are at least convinced that there is a problem and it is time to do something about it.

In the upcoming article we will describe the organic regulations and the organic experience!
