The answer is rooted in how almost all the skin care products are manufactured. All these pure white so-called natural skin care products, or the ingredients used in them are highly processed with the use of chemicals and bleaching agents. We already know that white bleached flour is chemically processed, stripped off its nutrients and should be avoided. Isn’t the same valid for skin care products as well? Especially when we know that over 60% of what we put on our skin gets absorbed and ends up in our blood stream!
Wouldn't it be great for
consumers if FDA required a total transparency and a real distinction on
the label - distinguishing them as "Truly Natural" or "Naturally derived but chemically processed" products! Although that still seems fairly far from a dream as the nightmarish free handedness of the skin care product manufacturers continue in selecting what ever ingredients the deem necessary to create their quick fixes while inflicting long term damage.
So the next time you find yourself staring at a perfectly white and silky cream, that claims to be all natural, ask yourself if the product matches the claim.
