HIGH ESSENTIAL OIL RATIOS
Essential oils have many known benefits. However, it is known that they are irritating, drying and corrosive to the skin when applied in disproportionate amounts.
They are products derived from petroleum. The cosmetic industry uses over one hundred petrochemical products as both preservative and moisturizing products.
Parabens are used as preservatives to extend the shelf life of skin and cosmetic products. According to scientific research, parabens have the ability to mimic estrogen- the female hormone. For this reason, it has been proven that it can cause health problems in both men and women, such as reproductive problems, hormonal disorders and breast cancer.
Phthalates are used in the cosmetics and care industry to increase the elasticity of an ingredient. This substance can cause disorders in the endocrine system, also known as the reproductive system. The use of phthalates has been banned in the European Union due to its harmful effects on health, but it is still common in many countries.
Also known as sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laurate sulfate, the substance is used as a cleansing and foaming ingredient in skin care, cosmetics and cleansing products. These harsh and synthetic cleansers have irritating properties to the skin and eyes. Regular use of sulfates on the skin can deprive the skin of its natural oils and cause more oil formation.
Palm oil is a widely used vegetable oil in the cosmetic industry due to its cheap price. This oil has come to the fore with the risk of cancer many times in the past. In addition, today rain forests are being destroyed to convert land into palm oil nurseries.With this, many wild animals are becoming extinct or are forced out of their natural habitats.
