Not all skin care products are good for your skin. Well written body moisturizer reviews should tell you the bad along with the good, but I think you’ll find a lot of them missing some important information.
If more body moisturizer reviews would tell you what I am about to write, you would be getting health information along with facts about how to look nice. I believe your health needs to be your first concern. If you loose your health, you have a much bigger issue to worry about than what moisturizing lotion to use, so read the reviews carefully and check them out for health concerns also.
Your skin care products need to be free from parabens. You’ll find this ingredient listed on many body moisturizers, even the supposedly all-natural brands. Check your labels. If parabens are listed don’t use the product.
You’ll see it listed as methyl, propyl, butyl, and ethyl parbens. They are used as preservatives in skin care products everywhere – body and hand creams, lotions, shampoos, and conditioners to name a few. Using them on your skin can cause skin irritations, but worse they can cause cancer.
Studies show parabens interfere with the bodies endocrine system. They mimic the estrogen in the body causing havoc with our hormonal system. Using products with parabens in them can put you more at risk for developing breast cancer and diseases of the reproductive system. You won’t find that information in many body moisturizer reviews you read.
I don’t know about you, but I would rather not use skin care products that will put me at risk for major diseases. Especially when vitamin E is a natural preservative that is safe and healthy for your skin. Vitamin E also is an antioxidant that has been shown in scientific studies to reverse the signs of skin anti aging problems.
Why wouldn’t companies want to add something to their product to benefit your skin, instead of potentially causing you health problems? It is as simple as economics – parabens are cheap. That is the main reason why you find them in most cosmetic products. The manufacturers are making more money, and causing you more health problems, which in the long run will certainly cost you a whole bunch more money.
You won’t find this information in most body moisturizer reviews because the reviews are written by people paid by the manufacturers that make products with parabens in them. And they certainly don’t want you to learn about the dangers.
When shopping for skin care products, check the labels to see if they contain parabens. Don’t just read the body moisturizer reviews to decide what products to use – read the labels on the products also. There are good excellent products out there that are not expensive and are paraben free.
Now that you know one ingredient that can cause health problems, shop carefully. Check out my website to find the products I’ve found that are safe to use. The company I buy from cares about your skin and helping you look good, but they also care about the most important factor of helping you stay healthy.
