Anti Aging Skin Products containing fragrances can damage your health

Everyone likes to smell nice. There’s nothing wrong with that is there? That’s why so many of our personal products such as soaps, shampoos, deodorants, skin care products are much more contain fragrances.

What could possibly be wrong with smelling good?

Stay with us here and keep reading. You see a fragrance is nothing more than a chemical that smells good. Whilst we would all like to think that wonderful perfumes are made from essence of rosehip or something like that nothing could be further from the truth.

Fragrances are chemicals produced in a laboratory that smell nice. There are thousands of them, and most of them have never been tested to find out if they are safe for people to put on their skin.

Did you know that the European Union Scientific Committee on Cosmetic Products and Non-Food Products estimates that somewhere around 2 percent of all people can be allergic or hypersensitive to chemical fragrances?anti aging tips

Did you know that chemical fragrances are one of the top 5 allergens causing allergic reactions, and that includes asthma?

Did you know that in 1986 the US National Academy of Sciences recognized chemical fragrances as potentially leading to brain damage, because they were a potential neurotoxin?

So many anti aging skin products that you may use now contain fragrances. Everyone assumes that this is okay, no one questions it.

One of the most common fragrances synthetic musk. Studies have shown that people who use large quantities of personal products with fragrances will commonly have high levels of synthetic musk in their bodies. And new studies are showing that chemical fragrances are even to be found in the cord blood of our newborn babies.

Perhaps now you’re beginning to wonder if you should be putting those anti aging products on your skin at all? Good. You see chemical fragrances are only the start of the problem. There are so many other potentially harmful chemical ingredients in many anti aging products, as well as other chemical ingredients that have been clearly demonstrated to be dangerous to our health, including carcinogenic.

This is a scandal that the US government is now beginning to recognise with proposed legislation before the Congress now.

However our best anti aging tip is to avoid big brand-name anti aging skin care products. As well as being potentially dangerous to your health they are also relatively ineffective.

The best natural anti aging products do not contain any chemical fragrances at all. This is for all the reasons outlined above. They contain ingredients which are known to be safe and effective, and which work extremely well at producing the result that a consumer wants, namely high quality skin care.

And the best natural anti aging skin care productscome with a money back guarantee.

Oh and by the way, what do you do if you like wearing perfume? After all perfume is just another chemical fragrance.

What you do is this. Rather than putting the perfume on your skin just deb a little on the outside of your clothes.

That way you smell good without the fragrance chemical getting into your bloodstream.

There you have our best anti aging tip. Avoid fragrances.



Jojoba oil moisturizers are better for your skin, moisturize well and don’t risk your skin health.

Jojoba oil is a natural oil used in the best jojoba moisturizers. There are a number of uses of jojoba oil, including in skin care products, and we are going to answer some readers questions about using jojoba oil as a moisturizer.

If you’ve read this website before you will know that we attempt to highlight the use of unnatural chemicals and irritating substances such as petrochemicals in so many of the mainstream skin care products, health products and cosmetics that are so commonly in use today.

And we also seek to tell you about natural alternatives that work as effectively, and often more effectively, then their chemical alternatives. Jojoba oil moisturizers are a fine example of high quality natural anti aging products that use safe natural ingredients.

So let’s see why the oil from the seed of the jojoba plant is good for your skin and is safe when used as an ingredient in skin care products.

Unfortunately, as we have highlighted before, many anti ageing products use petrochemical ingredients to moisturize. We have written recently about the risks of petrolatum (a petrochemical oil) used in many skin care products, and have also explained that petrolatum does nothing to moisturize your skin other than to coat it in oil.Jojoba Moisturizers

And there are other examples of petrochemical and chemical ingredients used in skin care products, including moisturisers, that do not actively moisturize and which may put your skin and your health at risk. These ingredients are used because they are extremely cheap.

There are many excellent natural ingredients which can be used in top shelf natural skin care products which are known for their excellent moisturizing properties, which are entirely safe to use on your skin and many of which have been used as a food for centuries. Olive oil is a good example.

Jojoba oil is another example of a natural oil which is safe to use on your skin and has excellent moisturising properties.

The oil is chemically extremely similar to the oil produced in human skin, called sebum, which is produced in the sebaceous glands. In fact technically the oil is more a liquid wax then an oil. It has been shown to be beneficial in treating acne, also has healing properties against other skin diseases like psoriasis and eczema and also has excellent skin moisturizing properties.

Unlike many of the chemical and petrochemical ingredients used in regular moisturizers it is able to penetrate the skin very effectively and it’s use does not result in a film of oil being left on the surface of the skin and face. (Though there are excellent moisturizers around).

It does not create skin irritation or allergies because it’s chemical make up is so similar to the makeup of sebum. It actually helps balance the skin’s production of sebum which means that it is perfect for those with oily skin, helping reduce the production of oil.

It helps reduce wrinkles and stretchmarks.
Jojoba Moisturizers

And also unlike many regular moisturizers it does not block the pores, which is also good news for acne sufferers. In fact it helps clean the pores.

Because it has such beneficial effects it is used in a range of products including soaps and hair conditioners as well as lip balms. A few drops of jojoba oil very effectively helps remove eye makeup.

So why would you use regular moisturizers when jojoba oil does the job better? That’s a good question, however so many women still choose to use mainstream moisturisers containing the chemical and petrochemical ingredients.

If jojoba oil is so good at moisturizing then why not just use it on its own each day? Well of course you can however is always better to use skin care products which contain jojoba oil as an ingredient but also contain a range of other natural oils including olive oil and Shea butter, all of which have their own slightly different moisturizing properties.

Combine a range of such ingredients into high quality natural skin care products and you have the recipe for an outstandingly effective (and safe) range of skin care products. Jojoba oil moisturizers which combine a range of such natural ingredients are very effective.

The best jojoba moisturiser is not a moisturiser. That is because the company that makes what we consider to be the best natural skin care products available offer a range of products all of which moisturize very effectively and which use many such natural ingredients together. Because all the products moisturize effectively there is no need for a dedicated moisturiser.

And they are so confident of the quality of their products that they even offer a money back guarantee, which is something extremely rare in the skin care industry.

So if you’re beginning to learn about the benefits of natural oils to your skin, and the risks of the chemical and petrochemical ingredients used in the big brand names then you may prefer to try a jojoba moisturizer from a company which makes the best in care products in the world.

We know you won’t be disappointed. And remember, pay attention to general lifestyle factors, this also benefits your skin and your health generally.



Want to know more about the down side of anti aging skin creams? (And the upside)?

If you’re worried about your gradual ageing then you may be much more interested in anti aging skin creams than you were when you were in your 20s. The more you see the visible effects of ageing on your skin the more you begin to think about your aging skin and what to do about it.

Chances are you’ve spent hours reading the advertisements, browsing the shelves of your department store and reading women’s magazines to try and determine whether any of the anti aging skin cremes on the market actually work. There are hundreds or even thousands of aging skin care products that make all sorts of promises about reversing the effects of ageing on your skin, and the reality is that many do very little.

Unfortunately the problem is that the market for antiaging products is enormous and is worth billions of dollars. In any industry where there is that much money to be made there will be companies, often the biggest and most profitable companies, who focus on the profit rather than the product. That’s true in the anti aging and skin care industry just as it is in many other industries.

The result is a plethora of new and supposedly wonderful skin care products which are advertised to reverse premature skin aging and make you look 30 years younger. The reality is in many cases they do very little. (Though this isn’t true for all of them)

The reason is that it is very easy to make huge amounts of money by making a poor quality product that costs very little and then spending big dollars advertising it. Advertising of skin care products, particularly on television using big name stars, is highly effective and sells millions of dollars worth of products, many of which are worthless.
Anti Aging Skin Creams

That’s the bad about the skincare and anti-aging industry. Most of the big players are prepared to spend as little as possible on product quality and as much as possible on advertising because it works to make big dollars.

Now for the ugly. Not only do many of the glitzy anti aging skin creams that you see advertised do very little for your skin, they can also be damaging to your health and your skin as well.

There are many products that contain chemical ingredients which are known to cause cancer and a range of other health problems and which are also known to irritate your skin. There are petrochemical products such as mineral oil and petrolatum in anti aging skin creams and these are known to be dangerous when applied to the skin and in some cases are banned in Europe for this reason.

The reason for this is the same. These ingredients are extremely cheap to use whereas safer alternatives which are known to be effective at promoting better skin health are much more expensive. If you’d like to find out more read some of the articles listed under the categories at the right.

Now to the good news. What I said above does not apply to all anti aging products. There are companies that seek to produce high quality products and which have a different business philosophy to most of the big players. These companies, one small one in particular, seek to produce high quality products with ingredients which are known to be extremely effective at promoting skin health and which are also known to be safe.

The products that these companies make are much more expensive to produce. However they are cost competitive to buy for one reason.

These companies rarely advertise. If these companies were to produce expensive products and also to engage in television advertising to compete with the big players they would be unable to market their products at a price that was competitive in the market place. However by saving the money they would have spent on advertising and applying that to product quality they are able to produce a much higher quality product and still sell it at a comparable price.

But of course because these companies don’t advertise you won’t see anything about their products in the magazines or on the television and so chances are you won’t know them.

These companies rely on their products doing the talking. The companies understand that slow organic growth of customers who buy the products and who use them for life is still an effective long-term business strategy.

One company in particular takes this to the extreme and even offers a 100 percent money back guarantee on all of their natural anti aging skin creams (all of which are highly effective and safe to use) which allows a potential customer to try the products knowing that they have the money back guarantee to rely on if they wish.

This company honors it’s guarantee in full but is rarely called on to refund any money as customers are invariably extremely happy with the products.

I believe this company makes the finest anti aging skin creams in the world however it’s unlikely that most people will be using them any time soon because they don’t advertise.

That’s the good, the bad and the ugly of anti aging skin creams.

Certainly there is bad news but there is also good news, there are safe and effective anti aging skin creams available, you just have to know where to find them.
