At Simply Nontoxic Cosmetics, when we say “nothing toxic” we mean it.
Many cosmetics and skincare companies use organic and natural ingredients, but still add toxic chemical and filler ingredients to their product line. Our extensive research found to have a non-irritating, nourishing product - all toxic chemicals and non-natural oils must be taken out of skincare and cosmetics.
We Care About Your Safety And Health
We are concerned about dangerous level of chemical exposure you have exposure to just by using seemingly “safe” beauty products. The full effects of many of the chemicals commonly used in cosmetics are not fully understood, and we don’t want to put your skin and health at risk. Our mission is carry nontoxic skincare and cosmetics to everyone to reduce any exposure to hazardous.
Our choice of ingredients and formulations are based on research that examines both sides, takes into account medical knowledge, and aligns with our core philosophy. We are confident about the products we develop, and we are pleased to offer what we believe are the safest and most effective cosmetics and skin care products on the market today. Of course we know anyone can react to mainstream or natural and organic ingredients. Because of this we also encourage test spotting all our products just as an added safety measure.
Ingredients Not in Our Products:
Parabens, petroleum and petroleum products, formaldehyde or formaldehyde releasing preservatives, Germall, Phthalates, BHT, Ureas,, Suttocide A, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Hydroxy Methy lGlycinate ,Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, or Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate are just some of the ingredients you will not find in our products.
We want you to make an informed choice the next time you purchase skincare or cosmetics. To begin, we put together a small list of common ingredients you will find in skincare and cosmetics.
Butylated hydroxytoleune (BHT): A preservative and antioxidant found in food and personal care products that has been linked to cancer, developmental reproductive problems, and skin and eye allergic reactions.
Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate: A foaming agent used in cosmetics. There is contamination concerns in the processing with this ingredient that may produce Ethylene dioxide and 1,4-dioxane — highly toxic, and a known carcinogen.
Formaldehyde: In its pure form, it is a colorless gas. In cosmetics, it is a liquid used as a preservative. Formaldehyde has been involved in quite a bit of controversy in recent years. Mainly it has been found to be extremely toxic and linked to skin irritation, cancer, reproductive problems, and many other disorders.
Germall (Imidazolindyl Urea and Diazolindyl Urea): A cosmetic preservative that has the potential to release formaldehyde at just over 10 degrees. It has a high potential to cause contact dermatitis.
Parabens: (Ethyl Paraben, Methyl Paraben, Butyl Paraben, and Propyl Paraben)
Found in almost all skin care and cosmetic products including shampoos, toothpaste, and baby products. It is used as a preservative in products, and more than one type of Paraben is common to preserve a single product. There is a high probability of causing a reaction and high suspicion that it is linked to cancer. Parabens can mimic the hormone estrogen- known to play a role in the development of breast cancer- and some studies have found Parabens in breast tumors. There is also research showing Parabens affect the secretion of testosterone and the function of the male reproductive system.
Petroleum: Petroleum creates a seal over the skin, not allowing it to breathe, interferes with the body’s own natural moisturizing mechanism- drying the skin, and causes inflammatory reactions, damaging skin cells, and enhances sun damage.
SodiumHydroxyMethylGlycinate (Suttocide A): A chemical preservative that decomposes to sodium glycerinate, and then to formaldehyde. It is found in many cosmetics, is a known skin irritant more irritating than Paraben containing products.
Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS): A detergent, degreaser, and foaming agent found in many soaps, shampoos, and toothpastes. Stripping the skin and hair of its own natural oils SLS leads to dryness and/or overproduction of oil of the skin. It has been shown to cause eye and skin irritation, and some research indicates that it could damage the hair follicle, contributing to hair loss. Some of the products have been shown to have low levels of the carcinogen 1,4 dioxane.
Here’s What We Think About All Of This:
The FDA does not closely regulate the cosmetic industry and many chemicals found in cosmetics are considered “safe” in low quantities. For example, per the FDA, Parabens are safe for use in cosmetic products, up to levels of 25%. But — how many people use one beauty product a day? Not many! The typical female consumer uses 10-15 products on her hair, body, and face. If you use one product with “minimal” chemicals, keep in mind you are multiplying your chemical exposure 10 – 15 times when you account all of the chemicals you use in products daily.
Similar to pharmaceuticals, it’s impossible to test the interaction and potential toxicity of all products the average consumer uses daily. Even with close monitoring and research, what seems “safe” at first can be found to be hazardous after more testing.
