Disclaimer: This is NOT a brand endorsement post.
We all are tempted by the overnight miracle various Skincare products claim.Aren’t we??
So far as a beauty enthusiastic I have tried all sorts of brands and their so called Miracle products ,but trust me all in vein.I have now stopped this cruelty towards my skin and use and endorse only and only Natural,vegan and chemical free products.
But many of us wonder what to check before buying any skincare products.Well to help everyone out here I am sharing few Ingredients you must must check before buying any skincare products.
Parabens: Causes hormonal imbalance.
Phthalates: Present as a major component in fragrances,this interfers with male reproduction system and causes breast cancer in women.
BHA/BHT : Used in skin lightening products.Causes stomach and liver cancer.
Aminophenol/Diaminobenzene/ Phenylenediamine: Used in dyes and anti-dandruff products.Known to cause Cancer.
DMDM Hydantoin/ Diazolidinyl urea/Imidazolidinyl urea/Methenamine/quaternium-15 Common name Formaldehyde.
Propylene glycol/Polyethylene glycols/Polyoxyethylene all petroleum-based compounds very commonly known as PEG.
Sulphates: Present in products by name carcinogen, and ethylene oxide they damage nervous system.Present in maximum soaps and shampoo.This increases the lathering power.

Fragrance: Very common ingredient present in almost all products I have seen.They are known to cause allergic reactions, asthma, and breathing difficulties and also cancer.
Methicones: Compound derivative of Siloxanes they are present in almost all products which claim smooth skin in a giffy.Known to cause fertility issues.
Nanoparticles: This is very frequently used in face washes that contain minutes beads which help in face exfoliation .Many such products had been banned in India too.Always avoid soaps and facewashes which contain these small particles .
Triclosan: Very active ingredient in sanitizers ,anti-bacterial soaps,cleansers,deos and toothpaste.They harm thyroid gland and reproductive system.
