The reason I started making natural skincare products in my own kitchen was to avoid harmful and toxic chemicals in mainstream and ‘natural’ skincare products (ie. parfum/fragrance, SLS, propylene glycol and triclosan) triggering everything from migraines to skin rashes to eczema. After I became a better label reader (you know those long and wordy ingredients labels on your skincare bottles), I started to research and take a deep dive into what those ingredients actually were. Shocking to say the least, I soon became inspired to create my own super clean, fragrance-free and non-toxic skincare, using the just the bare minimum “raw” ingredients for what I needed for my sensitive skin. My passion quickly turned from a hobby to a full fledged skincare brand. I left corporate marketing after 20 years and started living the change I wanted to see in the beauty industry.
A really good place for you folks to read up and research toxic chemical ingredients in skincare products is called The Dirty Dozen 12 cosmetic chemicals to avoid by the David Suzuki Foundation. Did you know that one in eight of the 82,000 ingredients used in personal care products are industrial chemicals including carcinogens, pesticides, reproductive toxins, and hormone disruptors. Many products include plasticizers (chemicals that keep concrete soft), degreasers (used to get grime off auto parts), and surfactants (they reduce surface tension in water, like in paint and inks). Imagine what that does to your skin, and to the environment. The term “fragrance” or “parfum” on a product label usually represents a complex mixture of dozens of chemicals and individual fragrance ingredients that have been associated with cancer and neurotoxicity among other adverse health effects including headaches, migranes, skin irritations and asthma. Some 3,000 chemicals are used as ‘fragrances/parfum’ and many of these unlisted ingredients are carcinogens, and manufacturers are not required to list all of the chemicals in their fragrance because it’s considered trade secrets.” At Nuworld Botanicals we avoid synthetic fragrance entirely, and use strictly pure thereapeutic-grade essential oils.
