Beautify Natural Skin Care takes your health very seriously!  We strive to help your skin look its best and you to look younger.  However, we do so in a responsible and sensible manner.  Many skin care lines contain dangerous ingredients.  They have little regard on the long-term effects these harmful ingredients may have on you.  1 out of 3 women get cancer in the U.S.!!  Avoid being a statistic.  STOP putting dangerous chemicals on your body!

Some synthetic ingredients are safe on their own, but when mixed with other synthetic ingredients can become endocrine disruptors and even carcinogens, messing you your hormonal balance and possible giving you cancer.

What You Put On Your Skin...

Can Be More Dangerous Than WhatYou Eat!

Putting chemicals on your skin is actually worse than eating them.  When you eat something that may contain chemicals, the enzymes in your saliva and stomach help to break it down and flush it out of your body. However, when you chemicals on your skin, they are absorbed straight into your bloodstream without filtering of any kind, going directly to your delicate organs.

Once these chemicals find their way into your body, they tend to accumulate over time because you typically lack the necessary enzymes to break them down.  These chemicals cause Free-Radicals making you age and age prematurely!

 

 

There are literally thousands of chemicals used in personal skin care products, and the U. S. government does not require any mandatory testing for these products before they are sold.

Beautify had prepared a chart of dangerous ingredients you should avoid.  It shows the dangers of what they can do to your body.  Beautify has purposely removed these dangerous ingredients to help insure you get the best skin care products.

  

INGREDIENT

USE

DANGERS

Parabens

Heavily used as preservatives in the cosmetic industry and are in an estimated 13,200 cosmetic and skin care products.

Studies implicate their connection with cancer because their hormone-disrupting qualities mimic estrogen and could disrupt your body's endocrine system.

Mineral Oil, Paraffin, and Petrolatum

Used heavily used in the cosmetic industry as a skin conditioning agent or protectant.  It is used in an estimated 13,200 cosmetic and skin care products.

These petroleum products coat the skin like plastic – clogging pores, not allowing the skin to breathe and creating a build-up of toxins. They can slow cellular development, creating earlier signs of aging. They're implicated as a suspected cause of cancer. Plus, they can disrupt hormonal activity. When you think about black oil pumped from deep underground, ask yourself; Would I put this stuff on my skin!?

Sodium laurel or lauryl sulfate (SLS), also known as sodium laureth sulfate (SLES)

Found in over 90% of personal care products! They break down your skin's moisture barrier, potentially leading to dry skin with premature aging. And because they easily penetrate your skin, they can allow other chemicals easy access.

There have been 16,000 studies showing the negative effects of SLS.   

  • Irritation of the skin and eyes
  • Organ toxicity
  • Developmental/reproductive toxicity
  • Neurotoxicity, endocrine disruption, ecotoxicology, and biochemical or cellular changes
  • Possible mutations and cancer

 SLS combined with other chemicals may become a "nitrosamine" – a potent carcinogen.

Acrylamide

Found in many facial creams.

Linked to mammary tumors.

Propylene Glycol (PEG)

Common cosmetic Moisturizer and carrier for fragrance oils.

May cause dermatitis and skin irritation. May inhibit skin cell growth.  Linked to kidney and liver problems.

Phenol carbolic acid

Found in many lotions and skin creams.

Can cause circulatory collapse, paralysis, convulsions, coma, and even death from respiratory failure.

 Hydroquinone

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Used in skin creams for Skin
Bleaching; reducing/
removing brown age spots.

 

Banned in the UK, Asia, Japan, and Australia.  Since 2006, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has said should be banned.  Hydroquinone is a Carcinogen, immunotoxicant and developmental and reproductive toxicant.  There are serious concerns regarding the ingredient's risks for various organ systems, the endocrine system and neurotoxicity. A condition called ochronosis, which causes skin thickening and Hyperpigmentation is associated with hydroquinone.  Allergic dermatitis can also be caused by a sensitivity reaction to hydroquinone.

Some people say that a lower percetage of Hydroquinone is safe.  The bioaccumulation in your body over time may cause health issues.  If you smoke less cigarettes a day, does that make it safe!?

Phthalates

Its oily texture that makes skin feel soft, and its ability to make lotions penetrate deeper into the skin.

Phthalates are known as "endocrine disruptors" because they mimic the body's hormones and have, in laboratory animal tests, been shown to cause reproductive and neurological damage.  They have been linked to chronic conditions like asthma and diabetes, and even developmental disorders.  California banned the use of phthalates in toys and baby products in 2009. Known as; butyl ester, DBP, BBP, DEP, benzenedicarboxylic acid.

Dioxane also known as

1,3 - Dioxane

Hidden in ingredients such as PEG, polysorbates, laureth, ethoxylated alcohols. Very commonly in personal care products as a preservative.

These chemicals are often contaminated with high concentrations of highly volatile 1,4-dioxane that's easily absorbed through the skin.  Its carcinogenicity was first reported in 1965, and later confirmed in studies including one from the National Cancer Institute in 1978.  Nasal passages are considered extremely vulnerable, making it, in our opinion, a really bad idea to put on your face.

Toluene

 

 

 

 

 

Made from petroleum and coal tar… found in most synthetic fragrances & paint thinners, and nail polish.

 

Chronic exposure linked to anemia, lowered blood cell count, liver or kidney damage. Affects a developing fetus, even causing spontaneous abortion. Very poisonous, banned in the European Union! Found in most synthetic fragrances.

Chemical Sunscreens/Sun Blocks

 

 

 

 

 Tanning, laying in the sun, preventing sun burn.

Ingredients such as oxybenzone and OMC, known as  Octylmethoxycinnamate, have been shown to disrupt endocrine activity.  OMC was found to kill mouse cells even at low doses. Plus, it was also shown to be particularly toxic when exposed to sunshine.  OMC is present in 90 percent of sunscreen brands!

Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are safer alternatives.

Ureas

 

 

 A preservative used in skin care products

Urea’s, formally known as diazolidinyl urea, imidazolidinyl urea, or DMDM hydantoin and sodium hydroxymethylglycinate, are preservatives that have the potential to release formaldehyde in very small amounts and are a primary cause of contact dermatitis.

Siloxanes

 

 

 Look for ingredients ending in "-siloxane" or "-methicone." Used in a variety of cosmetics to soften, smooth and moisten.

Suspected endocrine disrupter and reproductive toxicant (cyclotetrasiloxane). Harmful to fish and other wildlife
