All natural skin care products and cosmetics have come in the spot light lately. Do you know why? Have you read the labels of the skin care products you use? You might want to! Some of those ingredients are extremely harmful to your health. In fact,Guest Posting some of the ingredients are linked to cancer! Surprised? It might pay you to look into the skin care products that you use on a daily basis. Then, you will see what the push for all natural skin care products is all about.

I know that you thinking that the U.S. government has put into place an agency that watches over the skin care and cosmetic industry. But, did you also know that this agency is poorly regulated and is given very broad outlines for what they enforce (or don't enforce)?

Now that you are aware how poorly managed skin care companies are, you definitely need to check out your skin care and cosmetics? Are you willing to bet your life on it? Are you sure? Read further if you have doubts that the skin care products you use are safe.

By renewing their campaign for safe skin care products, you will have more choices than ever before when it comes to all natural skin care and cosmetics. But, did you realize that there are companies out there that are not selling true all natural skin care and cosmetics? How can you protect yourself from these harmful effects?

Protecting Yourself

Before continuing to use any makeup or skin care, you should check first to see if any hazardous or possible carcinogenic ingredients are included in the formula. Every company is required to list the all the ingredients that are in the product on the label. If you are concerned about your health or the health of your loved ones, then please check out the ingredients of your cosmetics and skin care - even the natural ones. Check to see if all the ingredients are on the safe list developed by the Safer Cosmetic Organization.

Safer Cosmetic Organization

This group has a free website for your protection. Over the years science has been good to us. They are constantly researching and testing all of the products we use on a daily basis. This website puts all of science and a great database at your finger tips. Some of the products you use are already in the database and others have not been included. After looking in Safer Cosmetics' database you find that your skin care product is not listed; you will have to enter the listed ingredients on that products label to find out if they have added toxic chemicals to their formula.

After going to this site myself, I made the decision to throw away all the products I was using that had adverse effects. The makeup that I thought was good, safe and harmless, was rated 7. I was deeply troubled when I found out that my makeup contained harmful materials and possible carcinogens. I had been using a product on my skin (which absorbs over 60% of everything put on it) that included possible carcinogens and hazardous ingredients. Do I really want cancer? Not me. And, neither do you!

All Natural Skin Care Products and Cosmetics

Are you ready to make the switch to all natural cosmetics and skin care? These products are made with ingredients from nature. Most natural skin care products contain only phyto-collagen products. These phyto-collagen products are derived from plants and are the best products to use to combat acne, aging skin, skin allergies and rashes. They provide for a more radiant glow and tighter, firmer, more youthful skin.

All Natural Skin Care & Cosmetics for Problem Skin

If you are having problems with your skin, it could be the products that you are using. Try using all natural cosmetics and skin care and see if you can tell the difference. I am betting within two weeks, you will be able to see and feel the difference. I have found some products that actually improve the skin after just one application.

More Youthful Appearance

If you are interested in a more youthful appearance, then all natural cosmetics are the only route to take. And on top of the firm, smooth skin you will be getting, these products are completely safe and toxin free.

All Natural Skin Care and Cosmetics

There are many companies that offer natural cosmetics and skin care. Some products are better than others so read and research before you purchase them. Remember that plant based products are better and your skin absorbs them more readily. Another ingredient that you may want to look for is glycerin. Many things dissolve better in glycerin so the absorption rate is much higher.


After using natural cosmetics for a short time, I know that you too will be as impressed as I am. I have noticed a radiance and glow that was not on my face before. You will certainly reap wonderful, healthy benefits by going all natural!
