skincare products

What are the ingredients to avoid in skincare products?   I suffered with acne for more than twenty years.  We tried all the special soaps, drugs, facials and even going to a special holistic practitioner in order to clear up the acne.   My skin would clear up but in time the acne would come right back.   The part that was the most difficult is that the acne was painful and you wanted to itch it.

At the age of 38, I finally found skincare products along with vitamins that cleared my skin up for good.   When my skin finally cleared up, I started to really look at the actual ingredients that go into a product line.   What are the best ingredients for your skin and what products in skincare products should you avoid?

This is one of the softest known minerals.  This mineral is not soluble in water.   Talc has a greasy feel and is used in baby powder.   Pediatricians usually recommend that parents not use baby powder but instead use an ointment that is zinc based.    Inhaling talc is not healthy for an infant.   This would be a reason not to use skincare products that have this mineral in their chemical makeup.  If it’s not safe for a baby to inhale, then you should not be putting it on your skin, directly or indirectly.

As a mineral, talc is used for stoves, sinks, electrical switchboards, crayons, soaps.   It is also used for countertops.


Carbon Black
Carbon black is a material produced by a process with heavy petroleum products such as FCC tar, coal tar, ethylene cracking tar, and a small amount from vegetable oil.  The main use for carbon black is as a reinforcing filler in tires and other rubber products.

Carbon black is also used in plastics, paints, and inks.   This compound is used as a color pigment in plastics, paints and inks.[2]

This product is also used in skincare products.  Because this product is used as a filler for tires and other rubber products, it is probably not the best to use skincare products that have this compound in their chemical makeup.

Animal Products
An animal product is any type of material that is from the body of an animal.   This could be fat, flesh, blood, milk eggs and other products.  Many skincare products use animal products in their chemical makeup.

Animal By-Products
Animal by products would include feed ingredients that are derived from any unused parts of an animal.   By products could include meat, bone meal, feather meal and/or manure, eggs and hatchery waste.  Using skincare products that are made from the waste or leftover of an animal

Parabens are chemical compounds that are used as a preservative in cosmetics.  Parabens are effective in compounds because of their ability to preserve.  Parabens and their salts are used because they prevent the spread of bacteria.

Parabens are used in shampoos, commercial moisturizers, shaving gels, personal lubricants,  topical pharmaceuticals, spray tanning solution, makeup,[1] and toothpaste.  This compound is also used as a food additive.

So, remember when purchasing skin care products, start reading the labels and look for products that don’t have this ingredients.
