Have you been taking good care of your skin for years, but think that you do not look as young as you should? Do you worry about what is in your face cream? Women on television with beautiful, smooth complexions advertise these products and say they could not do without them—do you wonder what they would look like if they washed off their makeup?
People who have been big users of chemical-laden face creams over many years can age faster in appearance than those who have used other products. As they gain more wrinkles and blemishes, they use more chemical-laden face creams. Do you know what is in these face cream products?
Mineral oil is a commonly used ingredient because it is plentiful and cheap. It is a by-product of the distillation of petroleum and can be called baby oil or paraffin wax. Mineral oil can suffocate and clog your pores and prevent your skin from eliminating toxins. It also hinders normal perspiration.
iooi’s All-Natural Face Moisturiser does not contain mineral oils.
Parabens are used because they give face cream a long shelf life. Do you want your skin preserved as though you were aging rapidly? Parabens are synthetic chemicals and probably carcinogenic. They can interfere with the endocrine system and can cause allergic reactions. Alcohol in the form of ethyl alcohol and isopropyl alcohol dries the skin and is an irritant; it strips the skin of its natural oils and leaves it vulnerable to viruses, bacteria and mold. It has no place in a product that claims to moisturise.
iooi’s All-Natural Face Moisturiser does not contain parabens.
Dioxane is commonly found in skin care products and can contain high levels of 1,4-dioxane, which is readily absorbed through the skin and is known to cause cancer. Hundreds of synthetic fragrances, which are derived from petrochemicals, are also used in cosmetics. These synthetic substances are known toxins and carcinogens, and they are toxic to the brain.
iooi’s All-Natural Face Moisturiser does not contain dioxane.
Clever advertising and societal pressure try to make you believe that chemical-laden skin care products will make you look like the celebrities that are used to sell the products. Yet no chemical product that clogs your skin, preserves it, dries it out or causes cancer can make you look like the people who are paid to extol the product’s virtues.
Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and while it is very good at keeping a lot of stuff out of the body, it is not designed to keep out modern-day chemical cocktails. You must be careful when choosing a face cream because many of them contain chemicals. However, it is becoming easier to buy better, natural face creams that are well made and provide value for money. It is up to you to make the right choice.
iooi’s All-Natural Face Moisturiser is a clear and inexpensive solution.
