People who select natural skin care
products are making the right choice for their health, according to a beauty website.
Best Anti Aging Creams suggested that natural skin care
products would be less likely to cause irritation and dryness than their conventional counterparts.
It said many cosmetics manufacturers put synthetic ingredients such as parabens in their creams and body lotions, which can cause reactions in some people.
The website also advised consumers to steer clear of products containing dioxane, which is thought to be a carcinogen, or alcohols.
Instead it suggested: "You should be looking for the best organic skin care products that are safe to use on any type of skin and that are proven in clinical trials to improve the skin."
However, it acknowledged that it can be difficult to choose true natural skin care
products because some manufacturers use both organic and synthetic ingredients.
To be certain of getting the right products, the website recommended staying with brands that only ever use natural ingredients, such as Burt's Bees
. Natural skin care
products can also have some benefits not related to the skin. Jenn Brockman recently told the Examiner that a natural exfoliating facial scrub can help people to wake up in the morning.
