Following are some SKIN CARE ingredients to avoid:
Parabens (i.e. Propylparaben, Methylparaben etc.) - inexpensive preservatives widely used in cosmetics and skin care products. Studies show their presence in 18 out of 20 breast cancer tumors tested. Their hormone-disrupting qualities mimic estrogen, possibly disrupting our bodies endocrine system.
Mineral Oil, Paraffin, Petrolatum - petroleum products that clog pores and cause build up of toxins, slowing cellular development which leads to early signs of aging. Implicated as a suspected cause of cancer and disrupting normal homonal activity.
Propylene Glycol - common filler, carrier for fragarance in lotions and moisturizers. May inhibit skin cell growth leading to early signs of aging, can cause skin irritation and dermatitis, is liked to kidney and liver problems.
Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), Sodium Laurel or Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) -
found in over 90% of personal care products, they break down the skins protective moisture barrier, potentially leading to dry skin with premature aging. Their ability to easily penetrate skin allows other chemicals access, combined they can become a nitrosamine, a potent carcinogen.
Acrylamide - found in many lotions and creams, linked to mammary tumors.
Toluene - petroleum / coal tar product found in most synthetic fragrances. Exposure is linked to anemia, lowered blood cell count, liver or kidney damage and may affect a developing fetus.
Dioxane - present in PEG, polysorbates, laureth, ethoxylated alcohols, very common in personal care products. These chemicals are often contaminated with high concentrations of highly volatile 1,4-dioxane that's easily absorbed through the skin. It's carcinogenicity was first reported in 1965 and later confirmed by the National Cancer Institute in 1978.
Phenol Carbolic Acid - used in many lotions and skin creams, can cause circulatory collapse, paralysis, convulsions, coma and even death from respiratory failure.
Retinyl Palmitate - used widely in skin creams, foundations and sunscreens. Was featured on the News early 2012 as being a carcinogen - specifically when combined with UV exposure.
Oxybenzone - used in almost every sunscreen product. Was featured in the same News report as Retinyl Palmitate, warning consumers of carcinogenic effect. Skin cancer has increased by 690 percent since the 1970's start of promoted use of heavy chemicals in sunscreen products.
We update this list as new research becomes available and there are many additional hazardous chemicals out there. Therefore we don't use any chemicals in our skin care products, unless they are registered to be perfectly safe and will not compromise the quality of our pure organic ingredients.
LESS CELL REGENERATION MEANS MORE AGING...
Healthy skin at age 20 grows a new layer of plump cells every 21 - 28 days. These cells contain collagen and elastin fibers, the two ingredients responsible for tight, plump and wrinkle free, healthy skin. As aging progresses cell regeneration slows, collagen and elastin content is reduced - resulting in thinning, wrinkling, sagging and formation of unhealthy skin cells.
STIMULATING CELL PRODUCTION IS THE ONLY TRUE REVERSAL OF AGING...
Introducing Dr. Yoies combination of pure organic ingredients to skin at any age will energize it on a cellular level, activating cell regeneration and increased collagen and elastin growth, resulting in smoother, firmer, plumper, clearer, more even colored, refined, beautiful, healthy complexion.
