Video: ❶ What Is Included In Cosmetics?
When buying cosmetics, the first thing you should pay attention to is the composition, which, as a rule, is indicated on the jar in very small print. Useful and harmful substances are there in the same row. You need to be able to distinguish one from the other, so that cosmetics ultimately benefit, not harm. Location: Location:
First, about the substances that are beneficial. Panthenol (or vitamin B5), propylene glycol helps to normalize skin moisture balance and tissue regeneration. Hyaluronic acid prevents skin aging, improves its elasticity and moisturizes, while potassium regulates water balance.
Collagen, wild yam and coenzyme Q-10 contribute to skin rejuvenation, accelerating cellular metabolism and accelerating the formation of antioxidants. Various oils that make up cosmetics have a number of beneficial properties. Jojoba, macadamia, coconut oils perfectly moisturize the skin, making it healthier and more beautiful.
Fruit acids help to eliminate hyperpigmentation, exfoliate the stratum corneum. Zinc has very strong antiseptic and antioxidant properties, eliminates oily sheen, normalizing the sebaceous glands. Various extracts that make up cosmetics also benefit the human body.
Now about those components of cosmetics that are harmful to the body. Parabens (butyl-, ethyl-, methylparaben) are now part of almost all cosmetic products and serve as a preservative, i.e. necessary for long-term storage of cosmetics. In humans, this substance can cause allergies and dermatitis, therefore it is dangerous for the category of people with sensitive skin.
Sodium laurel sulfate is used by most manufacturers in shampoos and hair conditioners. This substance promotes the formation of foam, but quickly penetrates the body, causes great harm to humans and can cause dandruff, hair loss, allergies, cataracts, blindness, and malignant tumors. Therefore, when using shampoo containing lauryl sulfate, you should moisten your head abundantly and apply shampoo only after five to ten minutes (after contact with water, the scalp practically does not let harmful substances inside).
In the composition of the product, in the first places there are substances that are in the highest concentration (this, as a rule, up to the seventh place in the list). The content of what is written after the seventh point is minimal and has practically no effect on the body (this applies to both harmful and useful substances).
