Organic Chemical Free Cosmetics & Perfumes Weybridge Surrey Why does what we put on our skin effect our health?


Putting chemicals on your body

“Makeup is a part of our culture, if you are going to use it, realise that you are putting chemicals on your body.” Dr Janet Gray.
Vassar College. US Jan 07.


On average

“On average, we use 9 cosmetic products a day, containing an aggregate 126 unique ingredients. A woman may use up to 20 different products as part of her daily routine”


High levels of absorption

60% of what we put on our skin is absorbed into our bodies.

90% is absorbed from our lips and mouth.

Is it really organic?

“Understanding the ingredients list on a toiletries product requires a degree in pharmacy. See the word ‘Organic’ or ‘Natural’ on the label and you’d be forgiven for assuming that it is Organic or Natural. Rule no. 1, don’t assume. Be a smart cosmetics consumer and always read the label.”

Other Products As little as 1%

“Organic Food requires a minimum of 95% of ingredients to be of organic origin. Organic Cosmetics however, require as little as 1%! The industrial chemicals that go into shampoos and creams are not trace contaminants. They are basic ingredients used in percentage amounts: the analogy used by EWG is that they are like the flour used in making bread.”
EWG – Environmental Working Group 2004

Beware – Parabens can be present in products labelled as ‘hypoallergenic’ ! WEN (Women’s Environmental Network) Dec. 03


What's In Baby Oil?

Mineral Oil or liquid paraffin – can be found in most body oils including baby products. Well known baby oil products contain 100% Mineral Oil!

Eczema affects 1 in 5 children

Eczema or Contact Dermatitis – affects 1 in 5 children today. Preservatives in cosmetics and skin care products are the second most common cause of skin reactions.


Cancer

"More research leads to more cancer. “Paradoxically, it seems the more we spend on cancer research, the more cancer we get” How can we be spending more and still losing ground ?

 Cancer establishments focus on damage control – screening, diagnosis, treatment and related basic research – rather than preventing it in the first place.”
Samuel Epstein – Chairman of the Cancer Prevention Coalition (LA Times Aug. 2003.)

Did You Know?

The skin is the largest organ of the human body. It is our most important immune defence barrier and our largest organ for eliminating waste. Substances applied to the skin can get absorbed into the blood stream, (this is how HRT and Nicotine patches work). Some experts say that up to 60% of substances applied to the skin can be absorbed into the blood stream.

Huge increase in children diagnosed with Eczema

“In 1951 only 1 in 33 children were diagnosed with Eczema – today its 1 in 5! Strong accumulating evidence suggests that the rise in eczema and the increased use of such products (bubble-baths, lotions oils, talcs, wipes etc.) are linked. Some detergents can break down the skin’s natural barrier, so that it allows other irritants and allergens – such as house dust mites – to penetrate the skin” Dr Michael Cork – Consultant Dermatologist, Sheffield Children’s Hospital

33% of all products contain ingredients linked to cancer

“In nearly 7,500 widely available toiletries and cosmetics, 33% of all products contain ingredients linked to cancer, 70% may be contaminated with harmful impurities and more than 50% contain penetration enhancers (harsh solvents & new nanoparticle technology) that drive ingredients deeper into the skin and blood vessels. The health risks are yet to be established.” EWG – Environmental Working Group 2004

81 per cent increase in Breast Cancer

“The incidence of Breast Cancer has risen by 81 per cent in England from 1971 to 2004. Mastectomy rates have jumped 44 per cent in 15 years. Fewer than 50 percent of breast cancer cases can be linked to age, genetic inheritance, early puberty, late menopause, excessive alcohol and late or no pregnancy choices.” Clare Dimmer. No More Breast Cancer Campaign. Dec 06

In 30 years, only 9 ingredients in cosmetics banned

“In its near 30 year history, the Cosmetics Ingredient Review panel has reviewed just 11% of the 10,500 cosmetic catalogued by the FDA (Food & Drugs Administration.) In 3 decades, only 9 ingredients have been banned from use in cosmetics.”

Asthma & Allergies

“Out of 54 countries UK is 5th highest with 5.1 million people being treated. More women are diagnosed with asthma than men.” “No body knows for sure why Asthma is becoming so common, but it is thought to be due to a complex combination of genetic and environmental factors. The rate of decline is higher in males than in females, leading to a higher prevalence of diagnosed asthma in women in adult life than in men. ”
“One factor to consider is this – 93% of British women use cosmetics in some shape of form making us the highest users in Europe . Fragrance is the number one cause of allergies and asthma.” 2002 Asthma Audit UK

Polluting our waterways

“Along with pharmaceuticals, personal care products are now some of the most ubiquitous pollutants in our waterways.”

Beware of other so called 'natural' cosmetics

By reading the list of ingredients in food products, (now required by law) we can make an informed choice on the foods and drinks we purchase. Unfortunately the same does not apply to the cosmetics industry. Up to 2000 - yes 2000! - synthetic chemicals can be used to create that wonderful smelling aroma we love in so many of those gorgeous creams, lotions and perfumes.
Many of the skincare products on the market call themselves natural but they can be full of chemicals. Unlike food, which requires a minimum of 95% natural ingredients, skincare products only need 1% of natural ingredients to call themselves natural! It is a misleading marketing trick but it sells and at the moment, it is not illegal.
 

Cosmetics & perfumes are part of our culture.
Pure Girl Organics offer quality organic alternatives
so you & your family can enjoy beauty products without
the risks from conventional chemical based products.

 

The Hazards Of Petrochemical Based Cosmetics

There are thousands of petroleum based chemicals used in the cosmetics industry - mineral oils and mineral emulsifiers, artificial colours, perfumes and preservatives. Many of them are highly toxic and they can cause all kinds of health problems. Some of them can be absorbed into the skin and even into the blood stream. They can cause all kinds of health problems such as respiratory problems, skin rashes, premature ageing, headaches, cancer etc.
The following is a list of some of the nasties you will find on many skin care products. Be aware of them and try to avoid using them. Our products do not contain any of these ingredients:
Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS)
Sodium Laureth Sufate (SLES)
Ammonium Laureth Sulphate (family of SLS)
Aluminium
Animal fat
Animal Derived Collagen
DEA, MEA, TEA
Dioxins
Elastin
Formaldehyde
Fragrance
Flourocarbons
Mineral Oil
Parabens - methly, isobutyl, butyl, ethyl, propyl
Paraffin
Propylene Glycol
Petrolatum
PE-40, PEG-150
Padimate-0
Imidazolidiny Urea and DMDM Hydantoin
PVP/VA Copolymer
Synthetic Colours FD&C or D&C followed by a number
Urea

Mineral Oils, Emulsifiers and Waxes

Mineral oils are detrimental to the skin, they coat the skin like plastic, interfering with the bodies healthy functioning, blocking pores and inhibiting the skins ability to eliminate toxins. Some of them sit on the surface of the skin, clogging the pores and making germs more likely to get in and toxins less likely to get out of your body. Mineral oils do not give any nourishment to the skin because they do not contain fatty acids and therefore have no affinity with the skin and cannot be absorbed by the skin.
We do not sell any products which contain mineral oils, waxes or mineral emulsifiers. We only sell products which contain cold pressed vegetable oils and fats such as shea nut butter and cocoa butter, and natural emulsifiers from plant sources
These natural plant oils have an affinity with the skin. They can be absorbed into the deeper layers of the skin. They contain fatty acids which are deeply moisturizing, and have an abundance of healing, revitalizing properties and natural vitamins.

SLS/SLES (Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulphate)

Used to make lather/bubbles - also found in industrial cleaners - both are cancer-causing, hormone disrupting chemicals - found in 90% of all commercial shampoos, skin creams and toothpaste. SLS/SLES strips the skin of its natural protective lipids. It is readily absorbed into the cells of the eyes (through the roots of the hair, not direct eye contact) It is corrosive to skin and will build up in the heart, liver, brain and eyes. Eugenie Reidy, The Ecologist Oct. 2003

Parabens – (methyl, ethyl, propyl, butyl and isobutyl)

Preservatives to prolong shelf life – Parabens have been detected in human breast tissue and, although they cannot yet be conclusively linked to breast cancer, evidence now suggests they can act as oestrogen mimics and have been shown to affect the growth of breast tumours. Parabens are all synthetic preservatives - up to 5 can be found in almost all our daily toiletries and cosmetics.

Methylparaben

Methylparaben is a common antiseptic found in more than 3,559 cosmetic products may cause skin to age prematurely when exposed to UV rays.

Propylparaben

Propylparaben has been found to adversely affect male reproductive functions.

Propylene Glycol

Propylene Glycol is a petrochemical, also a major ingredient in Brake Fluid and Anti-Freeze – it is a skin irritant shown to cause dermatitis. Found in hair products, makeup, baby products and mascara. The Ecologist October 03

Parfum (Fragrance)

Parfum (Fragrance) – a cocktail of synthetic petrochemicals used to hide the smell of other petrochemicals and preservatives – the number one cause of allergies and asthma.
A typical single listing of Parfum or Fragrance on cosmetic packaging means the product may contain between 50 and 100 fragrances. Parfum can also be found in ‘Fragrance Free’ and ‘Unscented’ products. Ethical Consumer Jun/Jul 1997

Formaldehyde, Toluene, Acetone and Phthalates

This mixture of toxic chemicals is found in Nail Polish and polish removers. It is a hazardous, reproductive toxicant found to cause health problems including occupational asthma. Phthalates are often omitted from labels. WEN (Women’s Environmental Network) May 2005
