Skin care products that are all natural, but have not gone under extensive lab testing by the FDA... or skincare products with chemical ingredients that have been tested?
Could you please name a few truly "all natural" products that are potentially dangerous? I'm not talking about products that claim "all natural" on their packaging, but products that are truly "non-synthetic". The worst issue I have ever seen is an allergic reaction to an essential oil in "all natural" products. Allergic reactions can also occur in conventional skin care.I'd choose the ones with chemical ingredients that have gone testing. There are some all natural products that are potentially dangerous.
Thanks for your post. I think there is a common misconception that the FDA approves/tests conventional skin care, but "all natural" skin care products are somehow exempt. The truth is that no cosmetics and/or skin care product is being tested or approved by the FDA. The FDA has a list of certain ingredients that are NOT allowed in skin care. Everything else is fair game. Usually an ingredient has to cause serious harm before the FDA puts in on that prohibited list.I don't need lab tests or FDA ruling what is good or not (especially when I know the FDA isn't about health but more like lining their pockets with $$$)
Give me something natural instead! Besides chemical/synthetics often end up having side effects.
Thanks for the clarification. Again, this is the skin care forum and not weight loss/internal application forum. I'm not aware of any skin care product that uses ephedera as an ingredient.There are all natural some herbs that are dangerous.
Ephedera is an all natural herb that was found to be potentially dangerous. The FDA had to regulate ephedera as a result.
Im prety sure vtoodler was just giving an example of how natural ingredients can stil be dangerous. A lot of people just assume that because its natural, it can't do any real damage to you. There are TONS of natural skin care ingredients that are damaging to the skin & body.. some more than their chemical substitutes. Even stuff like Licorice in skin creams has estrogen properties which have not been fully studied.Thanks for the clarification. Again, this is the skin care forum and not weight loss/internal application forum. I'm not aware of any skin care product that uses ephedera as an ingredient.
You are absolutely right, "all natural" ingredients can be potentially harmful as well when taken internally.
I have seen some places that say they use natural preservatives for their products. Are natural preservatives effective?theres nothing we can call it a natural products in the skin care industry
coz they have to put some chemical ingredients to prevent it from expir
unless u made it at home u then call it natural products
i totally agree with vtoodler
