Does organic cosmetics safer than non-organic cosmetics
Does the all organic cosmetic’s safe? The answer is no. When shopping for organic cosmetics there are specific ingredients that should not be on the label. These are:
1. Grapefruit Seed Extract. It derives its antimicrobial properties not from grapefruit seed, but from toxic chemicals, primarily benzethonium chloride, and to a lesser extent from triclosan and parabens.
2. Cocamidopropyl Betaine. It is toxic to the immune system and can cause dermatitis and other allergic reactions.
3. Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein. Anytime you see something that is hydrolyzed there is a hidden source of MSG that is absorbed into your bloodstream when it comes in contact with your skin.
It’s most important that you read the labels, and here are some ingredients that you do not want to see in your organic.
