A Few Problems Caused by Toxic Ingredients

 

A reason for acne is often due to the ingredients in the beauty products that we apply on our face. Many natural oils can be some of the worst offenders and cause severely inflamed acne.

Collagen is responsible for improving skin elasticity which reduces visible wrinkles, and keeps your skin plump with a youthful glow. Methylparabens and its many synonym ingredients reduce both new collagen production and existing levels. This reduction of collagen speeds up cell aging and results in the production of more lines and wrinkles. Despite the problems it causes, methylparaben is used in moisturizers, face and body creams, foundations, primers and more.

Mineral acids, HCI, H2SO, Sulfuric Acid and others, can cause an irreversible change in the chemical bonds that hold collagen protein in your skin together, and cause these to break down, leading to sagging and wrinkling of the skin.

Phthalates, are synthetic ingredients used by cosmetic manufacturers to help the product last longer.

A study from Uppsala University suggests that this ingredient is linked to type-2 diabetes. This study found, among 1,000 participants, that those with higher levels of phthalates in their blood were twice as likely to develop diabetes.

It is not just about wrong eating, drinking and lack of exercise that can contribute to high blood pressure. Build-up of toxins leads to poisoning of systems and cause health problems like hypertension and many others. The World Health Organization (WHO), estimates that 82% of all chronic degenerative diseases are caused by environmental exposure to toxic metals.

Tests have shown that minor exposure to Cadmium targets blood vessels and heart tissue, as well as, the kidneys, lungs and brain, and results in heart disease, hypertension, liver damage, suppressed immune system and other problems. These tests have caused Canada to ban the use of it in all of their cosmetics, but it is still being used in America.
