Going GreenIt is easy today for going green with your make-up. Because of consumer awareness, the companies that manufacture make-up and other beauty products realize the need to create products that are organic and not chemical laden.

What consumers are going green, they need to look for in the list of ingredients on packaging of beauty products and make-up with organic ingredients listed first and minimal amount of chemicals listed next.  Many times ingredients are synthetic by-products and can cause more harm to the skin.

Such as mineral oil is a by-product of gasoline distillation and while it has an instant effect against dry skin, a period of consistent use can make the skin reliant upon it. Most chemicals have some sort of side effect, such as allergies, skin irritations and some cases have been found to cause cancer. So in what may seem use of mineral oil as going green is really a chemical laden product.

As a consumer that is making efforts of going green in all areas of your life, look for beauty products that offer organic ingredients such as these which are powerful naturally:

Cynergy TK (TM) – This product stimulates skin protein production like Collagen and Elastin, keeping skin’s elasticity, firmness and smooth.

Extrapone Nutgrass – This product inhibits skin protein production like Melanin and maintains the skin from age spots.

Phytessence Wakame – This product protects against the sun’s harmful rays to the skin and prevents age spots from happening.

Avocado Oil – This ingredient penetrates into the skin to hydrate, nourish and rejuvenates from deep inside for a natural healthy skin.

Maracuja – this is a natural emollient that nourishes the skin and revitalizes the softness. It also aids in regulating the sebum level that prevents skin from either drying out or getting too oily.

These are natural ingredients found in organic beauty products that will help get your skin healthy and keep it healthy while going green with your beauty and make-up regimen. And even better, they do not have any side effects.

Once you begin reading labels more closely, it is frightening how many chemicals are found in beauty product and cosmetics. The harmful chemicals like parabens which have been linked to cancer. This ingredient is listed as butylparaben, methylparaben and propylparaben.  Another chemical that is frequently found in the fragrance that is used in beauty products and cosmetics is phthalates that can have side effects over time.
