It's Good to Know about Natural Skin Care
It's so crazy that my moisturizer has petrolatum in it. Check yours, I bet it has it, too. It's not that it's so hazardous for you, in fact EWG gives it a "2" (low numbers are good). What's crazy is that it's petroleum-based, meaning it's coming from the same stuff that goes into our cars and the stuff we go to war over.
I also see ingredients with "paraben" in the word, like propylparaben. It's a potential hormone disruptor and causes harm to the environment.
And here I thought I was doing so well by buying "fragrance free" moisturizer. It's just not that easy.
To help sort out what I do need and don't need in a moisturizer, I went to "No More Dirty Looks," by Siobhan O'Conner and Alexandra Spunt. When checking your labels, they suggest looking for: Shea butter, olive or coconut oil - something that'll moisturize Vegetable based glycerin - which locks the moisture in Grapeseed extract or green tea catechins - for anti aging.
Stop a second here. I realize you don't have all day to read labels. I read labels like crazy, and when I'm done I feel like I've eaten a single M&M (totally unsatisfied and a little frustrated). Labels are difficult to read, even if you are slightly educated about it. It helps to find a company that does the reading for you, like Beautorium.com or Mothernature.com. If you want to give some new products a try, check out these trial sizes. I've read the labels and feel fairly good about them, and they're all from Beautorium, and there's one for babies. And they're not crazy-expensive.
