How important is it to you that you can actually pronounce the ingredients in your skincare?
When was the last time you checked out the ingredient list on your lotion, foundation, face wash?
Ethoxylated Surfactants, Polyethylene Glycol, Oxybenzone, Benzophenone… what in the world are those ingredients?!
Entering into a more natural way of living has changed how I view these ingredients. Once upon a time, I never even thought about the ingredients in my skincare products. I never realized what an impact they can have on my body or the environment. Take parabens for example. You can find parabens in everything from sunscreen to lip stick! What's wrong with parabens? Turns out they are endocrine disruptors and can mimic hormones in your body. Anything that messes with your body like that is bad news!
Realizing that most of the hard to pronounce ingredients came with safety and health concerns pushed me to the “if you can't pronounce it, don't buy it” line of thought. Using this philosophy is a great and simple way to choosing safe skincare products. Be honest, those ingredients that I listed just a bit ago took you a long time to pronounce, am I right? Either that or you skimmed over them and abbreviated them (poly-something, oxyb…. bento-what?).
Cocoa Butter, Beeswax, Coconut Oil, Lavender… Bet you can pronounce those!
It can be hard to find skincare products that fit the pronounceable ingredient requirement. Many brands boast that they are made with aloe, or shea butter, or other natural ingredients but then they still have many of the sneaky toxic ingredients as well. It can be overwhelming to find a great brand that is transparent in it's ingredients and amazing quality.
