Free Reports Explaining the Chemical Ingredients in Cosmetics and Skin Care Products.


Are you interested in chemical-free, natural and organic skin care? Would you like to reduce or even eliminate chemicals in the products you use on your body?

A little taste of the information in my email reports on Cosmetic Ingredients and Contaminants.

In the world of cosmetics and skin care products the choices are enormous. The most popular products seem to be the ones that are most heavily advertised and promoted.  They promise magical results almost instantly.

But what do they really contain? And are they safe for us?

This is the reason I compiled the reports, spaced a week apart, so you have the time to read and absorb the information.

The first report on Ingredients is delivered immediately … why wait around for bad news?!

We discuss:

  • The definitions such as “Clinically Proven” to find what this really means to you.
  • The way a label is listed is of importance if you are looking for potency in the active ingredients.
  • Beware of chemicals disguised as ‘natural’

The second report is delivered the next day. This subject is Contaminants, and maybe more important as Contamination of an ingredient is not intended, and as such is not listed on the label. Contamination often happens at the manufacturing stage where  the ingredient is contaminated with 1,4-dioxane.
There are also products that are contaminated during storage by the combination of 2 or more ingredients that react unfavourably with each other.
I will show you how to recognise them.

All the reports will now be delivered a day apart…  And in the 3rd report, we look closer at Cleansers, shampoo, body wash and personal care products that foam. Even the ‘natural’ ones contain chemicals that dehydrate the skin and scalp and lead to flakiness. Discover what chemicals to avoid in foaming and lathering products.

Moisturisers and Body Lotions are meant to improve the suppleness and smoothness of the skin. In this report I will examine the ingredients that can actually dehydrate and prematurely age the skin. You will be surprised how widely they are included in the most prestigious brands.

Sunscreens are email report number 5. There is a large amount of controversy, with skin cancer doctors and foundations advising us to avoid the sun or smear chemical laden creams onto our bodies, to the well documented findings that lack of sun causes vitamin D deficiency and why that can be a health problem. I research the chemicals found in the majority of sunscreen products, and discuss why they may be more dangerous than sun exposure.

Baby Care products are not exempt from chemical ingredients. This report highlights the type of toxins that are found in baby products. Small bodies are more susceptible to these toxins because of their weight ratio. Learn how to protect your children.

Cosmetic Products are a favourite report. Lead in lipstick? Mercury in mascara! Whether we want the full works of foundation, blush, shadow, liners: both eye and lip and lashings of mascara, or we are happy with just a little lipstick, the number of toxic chemicals in these products is enough to make your head spin! I help you to weed out the worst offenders and find safer alternatives.

Free reports from No Chemical Cosmetics will arm you with the knowledge to confidently shop for your skin care, personal care and cosmetics. You will be able to recognise and avoid toxic chemicals in the products you choose.
There are safer, more effective alternatives to the chemical concoctions on offer.
You will never again have to rely on the manufacturers claims that often fall short of the results you expect and deserve.

Chemical-free, Natural & Organic Skin Care Products & Cosmetics.

Why would you choose anything else?

There is a lot of Hype about no-chemical cosmetics & organic skin care and natural personal care products.
As consumers become aware of the huge amount of ingredients that are unassessed for safety in the many body products they use daily, manufacturers are going to great lengths to advertise and market their wares as ‘natural’ and even ‘organic’ to woo buyers.

A great number of these products do have valuable ingredients, but a closer look at the labels will reveal that they may also include contents in the formula that have not been tested for safety to the user, singularly, let alone in combination with other ingredients in the product.

Over the past few decades there have been a plethora of new chemicals introduced into the market and the safety research has had a difficult time keeping up with the testing. Much is made of not testing on animals, but the bunny logo recognised as the insignia of ‘not tested on animals’ is a little deceptive.

A manufacturer can make this claim if they or their agents have not undertaken animal testing for the past 5 years, outside that, all bets are off! You can be reasonably sure that chemicals used on humans have been tested on animals at some stage in their production or they would not be deemed safe enough to be included in products applied to the human body.

As there are no regulations or legal obligations for advertising organic or natural skincare products, it is reasonable to assume that companies actually lie to consumers when they proclaim ‘natural’ ‘organic’ and ‘chemical-free’.

They claim their range of products are natural but boldly list ingredients with names difficult to pronounce. I have the image of bubbling test tubes that are likely to be the result of concoctions from the mad professor’s laboratory.

Here is a list of toxic ingredients …

Natural is perceived as being close to nature and certified organic ingredients are those that have been raised, harvested, processed, stored and packaged with an audit trail through out the entire life of the substance. This method can be considered true green skin care as the manufacturers who have taken the trouble to certify their products, will be aware of energy and carbon foot print issues when developing their range.

A Certified Organic ingredient has a guarantee from an independent third party governing body ensuring such a claim. Natural, certified organic ingredients are extracted with little processing, no heat to destroy the beneficial and often healing properties and certainly would not use chemicals in the process.

The governing agencies, charged with the task of maintaining watch on ingredients used in cosmetics and skincare products appear to be overwhelmed. The ever-increasing number of products and wild claims of magical results are more often industry reviewed. A conflict of interest may well be suspected.

To be sure you are not exposed to chemicals that might cause harm, choose body products that are certified organic and carry a logo of a reputable governing body. At the very least we all need to learn to read the labels and recognise the most dangerous chemicals. Those that have been researched and have been shown to be toxic to laboratory animals could also have catastrophic consequences to human health.
