(And the best olive oil moisturizer isn’t even a moisturizer)

Olive oil moisturizers aren’t all that common, because many of the major skin care brands use cheaper oils for their moisturizing properties. One of the cheap oils that is commonly used in many anti aging skin products is mineral oil. Mineral oil is a petrochemical product made from crude oil, and is commonly used in anti aging skin products because it is extremely cheap. Olive oil is much more expensive. Lets look at what and olive oil moisturizer is and why you should be using olive oil rather than mineral oil to moisturize your skin.

The moisturizing properties of olive oil have been known for centuries. Whilst very good for the health when eaten olive oil is also extremely good for your skin. It is very high in minerals, anti oxidants and vitamins and in particular in vitamin E as well as vitamin A.

Using olive oil on the skin helps protect the skin from the operation of free radicals which damage the cells in the skin. Olive oil helps regulate the skin’s natural oils and also helps protect the skin from external ravages such as pollution. As a moisturizer it is very effective in helping produce soft supple skin.olive oil moisturizers

It is also of particular benefit from people who suffer from particularly dry skin or some conditions such as rashes, psoriasis or eczema.

As already mentioned you’re more likely to find mineral oil in your anti aging products than you are to find olive oil however. The reason is simple, mineral oil is cheap and olive oil is expensive. Most companies that produce skin care products prefer to direct as much money as possible towards marketing and advertising, particularly on television and in magazines, and to keep the price of the product competitive by using cheaper ingredients.

Mineral oil has no direct moisturizing properties of it’s own. The intention is that it will help keep your skin better hydrated by forming a thin layer of oil over the skin thereby helping prevent moisture loss. It does this, however it also clogs pores which can lead to acne, and there are suggestions that mineral oil is also not good your health. It produces an oily feel to the skin.

If you prefer skin care products with olive oil rather than mineral oil then you’ll find to get a much better result. But you’re less likely to find olive oil in most of the big name brands on the shelves of your supermarket.

Olive oil moisturizers do exist, however the skin care products which we consider to be the best anti aging skin products on the market, whilst using olive oil in their products, do not actually produce a moisturizer.

There is a simple reason for this. All their products moisturize successfully and there is no need to produce a dedicated moisturizer. Using their regular skin care products moisturiszs very well.

This is achieved not just by adding olive oil to the products but also a range of other natural moisturizers such as Shea butter, Grapeseed oil and others such as Babassu, Maracuja and more. Babassu is a natural waxy substance extracted from the fruit of the Babassu tree found in Brazil. It moisturizes the skin without producing any oily residue and is effective on dry and itchy skin in particular.

Maracuja is an extract of passionfruit and is high in fatty acids helping to nourish your skin and make it feels softer.

It’s not necessary to buy a dedicated moisturizer because all of their excellent skin care productscontain these ingredients, and so work very effectively at moisturizing.

So if you’ve been looking for an olive oil moisturizer the good news is that olive oil does moisturize very effectively, and that there are excellent natural skin care products available which use olive oil as well as many other natural ingredients to produce a high quality moisturizing effect.

Not only that but these products are backed up with a full 100 percent money back guarantee, and that is extremely rare for any skin care products.

Extremely rare.

Therefore if you understand the benefits of using natural ingredients such as olive oil for your skin care it is well worth giving the skin care products of Xtend Life a try, fully guaranteed, to see how effectively they can work for you.



The best nature skin care products are safe to use and fully guaranteed

Did you realise that in the US there is almost no regulation governing what ingredients go into skin care products? Did you realise that the FDA is not required to approve skin care products before they go on the market, and that any company that manufactures products that go on your skin, including cosmetics, can put virtually any ingredient that they want into the product?

And given the history of big business in the US, are you confident that these companies would only use safe ingredients in their products, despite the fact that there are many extremely hazardous ingredients which may be put into skin care products legally?

No we have no confidence either that the massive companies producing so many of the skin care products you see on the shelves today have a sufficient commitment to their customers that they wouldn’t do anything that might endanger their health.

That’s why we are so keen suggest that you use high quality nature skin care products rather than the big brands. That’s because there is ample evidence that there are some toxic ingredients in so many of the big brands. Just have a look at several of those toxic ingredients, though there’s many many examples, and if you’d like to find out more go to the Cosmetic Safety Database where you can spend some time reading more, or even searching out individual products or manufacturers to find out exactly what’s in those products and what the risk is to your health.nature skin care products

Lets look at a few examples.

1. Fragrances are wonderful things. Everybody likes to smell good, and what’s wrong with smelling good? Everyone assumes that a nice fragrance is distilled from roses or something like that. Sadly that is far from the truth. Most fragrances are simply synthetic chemicals manufactured in a laboratory, and many contain ingredients which can damage your health.

Lets do a search at the Cosmetic Safety Database and see what it tells us about fragrances. You’ll see that fragrance is listed with a hazard score of 8 on a scale of 8 to 10 of hazard.

As you can see from the page fragrances can be linked to neurotoxicity, allergies, immunotoxicity and more. And you will see that there are 934 studies in the Pubmed science library referencing the toxicity of fragrances.

Unfortunately a fragrance is just a chemical, sometimes completely harmless, sometimes not. And sadly there are no regulations requiring companies that manufacture skin care products, or many other products that contain fragrances, to list the chemical ingredients of a fragrance. Usually all you see is “fragrance” on the label.

2. 1,4 Dioxane. This is a known carcinogen and is a byproduct of various industrial processes, and may, or may not, be found in many products. Use the search at the Cosmetic Database we you can see the risks from 1,4 Dioxane. They include the risk of cancer as well as much more. And you can see the link to products which may contain 1,4 Dioxane.

3. Parabens. Parabens are a class of preservative that are used in many skin care products. Search at the Cosmetics Database.  Click on Propylparaben and you’ll see that it is linked to cancer, developmental and reproductive toxicity and immunotoxicity. It can be found in more than 8000 products. Sadly although there are many natural preservatives which work effectively parabens are much cheaper than the natural alternatives, and so are more commonly used.

Hopefully you’re beginning to get the picture, namely that the cosmetics and skin care industries are not regulated, and the companies that manufacture the products can put pretty much whatever they want into those products, and they do, notwithstanding that many of these ingredients are dangerous.

Nature skin care products, or at least the very best nature skin care products, are manufactured only with ingredients sourced from natural sources such as plants, and which are known to be safe to people.

The company that makes the best natural skin care products demonstrates its commitment to the safety of it’s customers by undertaking to only use ingredients which are “safe enough to eat”. In other words they put the health of their customers first.

If all of the above comes as a bit of a shock to you then it’s time for you to spend a little time researching, there’s plenty of information on the Internet about the dangers of many mainstream brands of skin care products, cosmetics and much much more.

And make sure you use high quality nature skin care products the next time you buy your skin care products. Not only are they much safer they are also more effective than the big brand names, and they are backed up with a full money back guarantee so you can try the products risk free and satisfy yourself about the quality of the products yourself.

Do yourself a favor, give the products a try, stay healthy and see how well they work.



But beware, mens skin care products can be as dangerous as womens skin care products

In the bad old days in the past skin care for men, if anyone was interested, was rarely discussed. Hair care, cosmetics, skin care products and so on were women’s business. But no longer. Skin products for men are mainstream now, and there is a burgeoning market for natural men’s skin care products.

Men, like women, are now beginning to understand that good skin care is about health as much as it is about looks. That’s because there is a gradual realisation that staying healthy is all about being healthy on the inside, or in other words exercising, eating right and doing everything else that we know we should be doing to keep ourselves healthy.

And although our skin is on the outside it is also an important organ of the body, and keeping your skin healthy is one of the important steps to keeping your body healthy.

I’ll give you an example. Depending on which country you live in melanoma, or what is commonly called skin cancer, is now one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers, and also kills many people. Melanoma, according to the scientists, is triggered by excess exposure to the sun, in other words too much sunburn and too much UV radiation. And whilst there are other factors one of the biggest things we can do to protect our health and our skin is to avoid sunburn.

So keeping our skin healthy can affect our overall health.

Not only that but men are also becoming more aware of their looks and more understanding of the fact that good skin care can keep the visible signs of ageing at bay.

However all the same risks and warnings apply to skin products for men as apply to skin products for women. Many of the mainstream men’s skincare products have a range of chemical and petrochemical ingredients, many of which are known to be unhealthy. Women’s skin care products are suspect for this reason, but men’s skin care products contain many of the same ingredients. To find out more about some of these specific ingredients read our categories on the right.

This is why natural men’s skin care products are now becoming big sellers, just as natural women’s skin care products are and have been for years.

That’s because the best natural men’s skin care products use only natural ingredients taken from natural sources such as plants, seaweeds and the wool of sheep, and which are known to pose no risks to either the skin or the health.

There’s just as many reasons why men should take care of their skin and stay healthy. And there’s also good reasons why men should feel good about looking as young as possible.

But if you’re looking for skin products for men remember, many of the mainstream brands that you see on the shelves of your local store contain potentially dangerous ingredients which may harm your health and your skin. Read more of our website if this comes as news to you.

So men, go for it. Use high quality natural men’s skin care products, keep your skin healthier and look better.

Women have been doing it for years, now it’s your turn. Feel good about yourself.
