Advantages of the Dead Sea mineral salts on your skin

Organic Aloe Skin Care cream contains, among other things, Dead Sea mineral salts.  It’s effect on the skin is quite amazing.

I found an interesting article online about the advantages of the Dead Sea mineral salts.

“The treatment of psoriasis on the shores of the Dead Sea is a typical example of a specific cure. It has been proved that the vast majority of psoriasis sufferers are cured, or their condition improves, after being in the sun and climate of the area and taking hot mineral baths, as well as bathing in the sea.”

History of Aloe Vera.

I stumbled across an old youtube documentory for Aloe Vera.

“Aloe’s first medicinal use is recorded on 4000 year old clay tablets by early sumarian pharmacists. The other great civilizations of Biblical times are also known to have valued aloe.  Traders promoted the use of aloe and were largely responsible for it’s spread across Africa, India and into the far east.”

What makes skin care cream USEFUL – The effects of mineral oil

Last week we touched on the perils of anti-freeze, (propylene glycol), being used for body care products from skin care to toothpaste.  Let’s look at another petroleum distillate that is used in a vast majority of skin care products – mineral oil.

Well, what about mineral oil you may ask?  Have you ever looked at the ingredients in baby oil?  It has only two ingredients, mineral oil and perfume.  Wow, you might say, this stuff must be good for baby’s skin as you slather it on after changing a diaper or giving baby a bath.  Advertising from the “experts” in marketing created that illusion.

Well, is mineral oil good for the skin or not?  To answer this question let’s look at some scientific data about it.

First, we would like for our readers to have a full understanding of the terms we are going to use.  What is the definition of molecule?

Molecule is a word we heard in high school science and maybe we got it and maybe we didn’t.  A molecule is just a small part of a substance on planet Earth.  It is the simple structural part of something, in other words, the smallest particle of a substance that is the stable portion of that chemical.  It is simply put – a small part of something.

The molecule of mineral oil is too large to be absorbed by the skin and so in rubbing “on” a lotion or cream that is what is happening.  It lays on the skin instead of being absorbed.  And thus we get a greasy feeling after using lotions and creams that contain mineral oil.

The creams and lotions that use this mineral include just about every lotion or cream sold over the counter, or to state it another way, every cream or lotion sold in the popular outlets such as grocery stores, pharmacies and department stores.

Probably the best way to describe what happens in the use of the lotions and creams sold by the big manufacturers in the stores is to get the reader to recall the action of using these substances.  One puts the lotion or cream on the hands and begins the process of distributing the lotion or cream around on the skin of the hands.  First one rubs the palms together and then transfers some to the back of the hand and keeps rubbing until the cream is “rubbed in”.  Then there is still a bit of a greasy feel left.  (And one is rubbing only into the pores.)

Then one washes their hands sometime in the next hour or so and upon drying the skin it feels dry again and the process if applying the greasy oily lotion or cream is repeated a second time that day, (or the third or fourth time).  If one is a nurse or works in any other profession where they are continuously washing their hands the use of a lotion or cream could be applied multiple times.

No matter how many times one applies the propylene glycol and mineral oil based products the skin is not getting a proper skin care treatment.  Propylene glycol dries out the skin and the mineral oil upon washing off  leaves the skin in the dry state the anti-freeze (propylene glycol) has created.  Remember, the mineral oil is only in the pores which get cleansed when washed.

Many women today are complaining of having dry skin, apparently thinking it is normal for them, when actually it is a created problem that can be solved in most cases.  To paraphrase the Hippocratic Oath sworn to by doctors, DO NO HARM to your skin.

The solution is to use a skin product such as Organic Aloe Skin Care cream which actually feeds the skin a nutritious diet of natural ingredients that the skin can absorb and use to regenerate new luxurious skin.  We borrow that term, luxurious, from a first time tester of Organic Aloe Skin Care cream when she realized the great feeling she had acquired from the use of this cream.  “This feels luxurious!”

Get Organic Aloe Skin Care cream for all of your family members and friends and help them to create that luxurious feeling we users so love.

What makes skin care cream USEFUL – Effects of Propylene Glycol

Why does one use a lotion or cream?  Is it to create a perfumed aroma around oneself?  Is it to treat a problem?  What are we actually trying to achieve?

Many times a person testing Organic Aloe Skin Care Cream for the first time will give a secondary check after feeling the effect of a fine cream on their skin.  Does it have an aroma?  Of course there is no perfume in the cream.  But, it was a secondary check after realizing that their skin felt so much smoother and softer.

These people wanted to be sure that it was fragrance free as they totally appreciated the effect of the cream on their skin.  Thus it would be reasonable to state that the majority of people do not like perfumed creams.

This now begs the question, why does Organic Aloe Skin Care Cream create an almost instantaneous soft skin that is different from the store-bought lotions and creams?  And why is it non-greasy in doing this job?

The answer to this is simple when one considers the ingredients in most store-bought items for the skin.  Most of the commercial products that are on the market, and particularly in the stores, contain distillates that are derived from crude oil and these have two notable factors:  1) these products do not treat the skin properly and  2) they don’t get absorbed properly.

There are three main distillates used in the store-bought products.  We will look at one of them in this article.

Let’s look at Propylene Glycol, commonly found in products on the store shelves including solvents and de-icing fluids.  Propylene Glycol, also called anti-freeze and used in settings where a chemical is needed to lower the freezing temperature of water in cold weather, is not a natural product of the body nor is it useable by the body to help the skin.  It is a toxin, a poison as such.  For skin care it is used to help keep the other ingredients in suspension in a liquid or cream and thus carried into the skin.

What makes anti-freeze, propylene glycol, dangerous?  As stated, it is a toxin and when it penetrates the skin it begins to weaken protein and cellular structure. It penetrates the skin so rapidly that the Environment Protection Agency warns factory workers to avoid skin contact in order to prevent brain, liver and kidney abnormalities.

So avoid the petroleum distillate Propylene Glycol when shopping for body care products, whether toothpaste, shampoos, deodorants or other cosmetics.  The following testimonial points out the peril.

“Thank you for the information.  I just wanted to share an experience with you.  I started having problems with getting rashes on various parts of my body.  I went to the dermatologist and he did a patch test in which he taped 45 different substances commonly found in everyday products that people’s skin may come into contact with to see if I’d react to any.  Well, the one containing propylene glycol blistered (my skin).  How could manufacturers put that harmful ingredient into shampoos, soaps, body washes, laundry detergent, lotions, etc.  I can’t believe it.  I went to an organic store and bought all new stuff.  Just wanted to share.”  —Katie

Occupational Skin Disease and Organic Aloe Skin Care Cream.

Occupational Skin Disease 1Over 34,000 cases of skin disease were reported by employees according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics in 2010i.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states “It is estimated that more than 13 million workers in the United States are potentially exposed to chemicals that can be absorbed through the skinii.”

Occupational Skin Diseases (OSD) are the second most common type of occupational disease.  They affect workers of all ages in a wide variety of work settings. Industries in which workers are at highest risk include manufacturing, food production, construction, machine tool operation, printing, metal plating, leather work, engine service, and forestryiii.

Contact Dermatitis is one of the most common types of occupational illness.

Contact dermatitis, also called eczema, is defined as an inflammation of the skin resulting from exposure to a hazardous agent. It is the most common form of reported OSD, and represents an overwhelming burden for workers in developed nations. Data indicate that contact dermatitis constitutes approximately 90-95% of all cases of OSD in the United Statesiv.

Common symptoms of dermatitis include:

  • Itching.
  • Pain.
  • Redness.
  • Swelling.
  • The formation of small blisters or wheals.
    • (itchy, red circles with a white center) on the skin.
  • Dry, flaking, scaly skin that may develop cracks.

In some cases the cessation of exposure may relieve this condition.  For acute cases, however, the is no known cure.  Treatments for symptoms listed above include aluminum acetate, steroids and various petroleum products such as mineral oil or Vaselinev.

As such, it should be noted that our customers have stated definitively that they use Organic Aloe Skin Care Cream to relieve eczema and dermatitis with amazing results.

“After surgery for a skin cancer on my leg, [I] developed a bad case of dermatitis.  Even after the dermatitis improved there was still a lot of itching around my ankles.  I smoothed on Organic Aloe and within minutes itching was gone and my skin feels great.  Thank you.”
B.S., Wilmington, NC.

“My name is L.B. And I love Organic Aloe Skin Care cream!  I have eczema and I’ve tried many types of creams, they all worked but I hate the greasy feeling that it left on my skin.  Organic Skin Care Cream doesn’t leave that greasy feeling and helps my eczema 100%.  I only put it on once a day in the morning and it lasts the whole day!  I would recommend this for anyone who has skin problems cause it’s truly and amazing cream.”

12 Common Toxins found in Skin Care Products

12 Toxins found in Skin Care Products

During the 16th century it was common for people to cover their faces with white lead mixed with mercury to give their skin a pale glow and use mercury based vermilion on their lips.  So much was the case that it eventually damaged their complexion, caused hair loss and eventually death with long term use.

The skin is your largest and also the thinnest organ. Less than 1/10th of an inch separates your body from potential toxins.  Your skin is also highly permeable. Most things you rub on your skin will end up in your bloodstream and circulate throughout your body.  Putting  chemicals on your skin could actually be worse than eating them. When you eat something, your body has a chance to break it down and flush it out.

When you put chemicals on your skin, they are absorbed straight into your bloodstream and directly to your organs where they accumulate over time.

In researching skin conditions I was surprised to learn the number of toxins still used in everyday skin care products. The following are just a few chemicals found in common skin care products today:

 

1. Parabens

An estimated 75 to 90 per cent of cosmetics contain parabens.  They are the most widely used preservative in cosmetics. They are also used as fragrance ingredients, but consumers won’t find that listed on the label. Fragrance recipes are considered trade secrets, so manufacturers are not required to disclose fragrance chemicals in the list of ingredients.

Parabens are known to disrupt hormone function, an effect that is linked to increased risk of breast cancer and reproductive toxicity. Parabens mimic estrogen by binding to estrogen receptors on cells. They also increase the expression of genes usually regulated by estradiol (a natural form of estrogen); these genes cause human breast cancer cells to grow and multiply in cellular studies. Parabens are also linked to cancer, reproductive toxicity, immunotoxicity, neurotoxicity and skin irritation. Since parabens are used to kill bacteria in water-based solutions, they inherently have some toxicity to cells.

 

2. BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole) and BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene)

Butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) and butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) are used as preservatives in a variety of personal care products. Both of these chemicals are also used as preservatives in foods. These chemicals are linked to several health concerns including endocrine disruption and organ-system toxicity, and due to these concerns, BHA has been banned for use in cosmetics in the European Union.

 

3. Synthetic  fragrances and Parfum

Widely used even in some products marketed as “unscented” (often the last ingredient). Mixture of chemicals that can trigger allergies and asthma. Some linked to cancer and neurotoxicity. Some harmful to fish and other wildlife.

Used to produce a pleasant scent. The term “fragrance” or “parfum” on a cosmetic ingredients list usually hides a complex mixture of dozens of chemicals. Some 3,000 chemicals are used as fragrances. Fragrance is used in nearly every type of personal care product. Even products marketed as “fragrance-free” or “unscented” may contain fragrance along with a masking agent that prevents the brain from perceiving odor. Fragrances are also found in numerous other consumer products, notably laundry detergents and softeners and cleaning products.

Some fragrance ingredients are not perfuming agents themselves but enhance the performance of perfuming agents. For example, diethyl phthalate (prounced tha-late), or DEP, is widely used in cosmetic fragrances to make the scent linger. Phthalates contain reproductive toxins and may interfere with hormone function.

 

4. PEGs

Propylene Glycol (PG), Polyethylene Glycol (PEG), and Ethylene Glycol (EG) are all petroleum derivatives that act as solvents, surfactants, and wetting agents. They can easily penetrate the skin and can weaken protein and cellular structure. In fact, PG penetrates the skin so quickly that the EPA warns factory workers to avoid skin contact, to prevent brain, liver and kidney abnormalities. PG is present in many stick deodorants, often in heavier concentration than in most industrial applications. Propylene Glycol is what is used to carry the “active” ingredients in those trans-dermal patches INTO YOUR BODY.

Propylene Glycol is a colorless, viscous, hygroscopic liquid, used in anti-freeze solutions, in hydraulic fluids and as a solvent. Also called “Propanediol” (American Heritage Encyclopedia Dictionary)

Propylene Glycol is used in: Anti-Freeze, Brake and Hydraulic Fluid, De-Icer, Paints and Coatings,  Floor Wax, Laundry Detergents, Pet Food, Tobacco,  Cosmetics, Toothpastes, Shampoos, Deodorants, Lotions, Processed Foods and many more personal care items.

 

5. Petrolatum (Mineral Oil)

Petrolatum is mineral oil jelly, and mineral oil causes a lot of problems when used on the skin like photosensitivity (i.e., promotes sun damage), and it tends to interfere with the body’s own natural moisturizing mechanism, leading to dry skin and chapping. You are being sold a product that creates the very conditions it claims to alleviate. Manufacturers use petrolatum because it is unbelievably cheap.

 

6. Siloxanes (Cyclomethicone and ingredients ending in “siloxane”,  e.g., cyclotetrasiloxane)

Studies have found that D4 and D5, members of the siloxane family, resist degradation and accumulate within the bodies of animals — qualifying them as persistent organic pollutants. Studies have linked them to reproductive damage in animals, including tumors of the uterus. Little research has been conducted on the chemical’s effects on humans, but they have been widely used in consumer products nonetheless.

The siloxanes are found in a variety of cosmetics, including lipsticks, lotions and hair care products. An Environmental Working Group survey has found D4 and D5 in one out of every seven of the 41,000 different personal care products it has analyzed. D4 and D5 are also used in plastics (including the nipples of baby bottles), cookware and home cleaning products.

 

7. Triclosan

Found in “anti-bacterial” products such as toothpaste, soaps, hand sanitizers. May interfere with hormone function. Harmful to fish and other wildlife.

Triclosan is used mainly in antiperspirants/deodorants, cleansers, and hand sanitizers as a preservative and an anti-bacterial agent. Triclosan can pass through skin and is suspected of interfering with hormone function (endocrine disruption). The extensive use of triclosan in consumer products may contribute to antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Triclosan is used in so many products that the small amounts found in each product add up — particularly since the chemical does not readily degrade. Moreover, some anti-bacterial hand sanitizers containing triclosan may not classify as “cosmetics” as per the Food and Drug Act. Products classified as “drugs” on the basis of a therapeutic claim or function are not subject to the Cosmetic Regulations or the Hotlist restriction.

 

8. Chemical Sunscreens (with Oxybenzone and Octyl Methoxycinnamate)

When many of the chemicals used in popular sunscreens are exposed to sunlight, reactions occur between the sunscreen’s active and inactive ingredients and the epidermis. Toxic reactions include inflammation, dermatological effects, allergic reactions and photogenotoxic (DNA altering) effects. Chemical sunscreens have ingredients that actually promote cancer.

P.S. Sunscreen does NOT allow the body to absorb any vitamin D from sunlight. So if you plan on being outside for a short period of time, skip the sunscreen and feed your body the vitamin D that will keep it healthy.

Oxybenzone has been shown to penetrate the skin and cause photosensitivity. It has demonstrated an increase in the production of harmful free radicals and an ability to attack DNA cells.  It is believed to be a contributing factor in the recent rise of melanoma cases with sunscreen users. Some studies have shown it to behave similarly to the hormone estrogen, suggesting that it may cause breast cancer. It has also been linked to contact eczema.

Octyl methoxycinnamate (OMC for short) is the main chemical used in sunscreens to filter out UVB light. OMC is present in almost ALL wide-spectrum sunscreen brands. Worse yet, OMC has been shown to be particularly toxic when exposed to sunshine. According to the Cosmetics Database there are many concerns regarding its use, including: biochemical changes that cause mutation and cell death upon exposure to sunlight; immunotoxicity and photoallergic effects; reproductive toxicity that leads to estrogenic effects; organ system toxicity, especially in the liver; and enhanced skin absorption.

Several studies show that many other sunscreen ingredients have toxic properties that are absorbed through the skin and end up circulating in your bloodstream.

 

9. Titanium Dioxide

Classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as an IARC Group 2B carcinogen ‘possibly carcinogen to humans’…(it) accounts for 70% of the total production volume of pigments worldwide.  It is widely used to provide whiteness and opacity to products such as paints, plastics, papers, inks, foods, and toothpastes. It is also used in cosmetic and skin care products, and it is present in almost every sunblock, where it helps protect the skin from ultraviolet light.

Evidence showed that high concentrations of pigment-grade (powdered) and ultrafine titanium dioxide dust caused respiratory tract cancer in rats exposed by inhalation and intratracheal2 instillation. The series of biological events or steps that produce the rat lung cancers (e.g. particle deposition, impaired lung clearance, cell injury, fibrosis, mutations and ultimately cancer) have also been seen in people working in dusty environments.

 

10. Aluminum

Aluminum is a common ingredient in deodorant and mostly antiperspirant. It is often linked to Alzheimer’s and brain disorders and is a possible risk factor in breast cancer. Aluminum-based compounds in antiperspirants form a temporary plug within the sweat duct that stops the flow of sweat to the skin’s surface, which forces toxins to flow back into the bloodstream.

Aluminum can be found in drinking water, anti-perspirants, vaccinations, baking powders, feminine hygiene products, cow and soy milk, baby formula, antacids, and of course aluminum foil, pots and pans. In water aluminum is used help remove debris in water (called flocculation) binding to the particles and sticking them together. Unfortunately, it is a neurotoxin that also binds and sticks to our red and white blood cells and hormones that can lead to microvascular strokes which cause many other serious issues.

The average person will consume and eat over 3 pounds of aluminum in his or her lifetime. That is the equivalent of 229 square feet of aluminum foil.

 

11. Heavy Metals: Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, Arsenic, Nickel and More

Heavy metals can build up in the body over time and are known to cause varied health problems, which can include: cancer, reproductive and developmental disorders, neurological problems; memory loss; mood swings; nerve, joint and muscle disorders; cardiovascular, skeletal, blood, immune system, kidney and renal problems; headaches; vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea; lung damage; contact dermatitis; and brittle hair and hair loss. Many are suspected hormone disruptors and respiratory toxins, and for some like lead, there is no known safe blood level.

Seven of the eight metals of concern were found in 49 different face makeup items. On average, products contained two of the four metals of most concern and four of the eight metals of concern. None of the heavy metals were listed on the product label.

Lead: Lead is a neurotoxin that is found in cosmetics, plastics, batteries, gasoline, insecticides, pottery glaze, soldered pipes, and paint. In October 2007, the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics tested 33 popular brands of lipsticks at an independent lab for lead content. The results: 61 percent of lipsticks contained lead, with levels ranging up to 0.65 parts per million.

In the body, lead will either accumulate in tissues, especially bone, but also in the liver, kidneys, pancreas, and lungs.  After immediate exposure, humans are able to get rid of 50 per cent of the lead within two to six weeks, but it takes 25 to 30 years to get rid of 50 per cent of lead that has accumulated in the body over time.

No safe blood level of lead is known, with even the lowest levels having shown to affect the fetus and the central nervous system in children. IQ deficits have been associated with high blood lead levels, including those of low-levels. Lead exposure has also been linked to miscarriage, hormonal changes, reduced fertility in men and women, menstrual irregularities, delays in puberty onset in girls, memory loss, mood swings, nerve, joint and muscle disorders, cardiovascular, skeletal, and kidney and renal problems.

Mercury: According to EWG’s Skin Deep database, it is a possible impurity in 1.9 per cent of products, including lip gloss, lip liner, eye liner, brow liner, moisturizer, mascara, baby lotion, lipstick, and eye shadow. Mercury has been found in skin lightening, anti-aging, antiseptic and anti-wrinkle products. Avoid all products containing mercurous chloride, calomel, mercuric, mercurio, or mercury.

Mercury is a neurotoxin. Various forms of mercury are toxic. The form of mercury plays a role in how much is absorbed via dermal or oral routes. Organic (methyl) mercury is of greater concern than inorganic mercury, however, all forms of mercury are absorbed through the skin and mucosa and dermal exposure can result in systemic toxicity. Exposure to mercury can have serious health consequences. It can cause damage to the kidneys and the nervous system, and can interfere with the development of the brain in unborn and young children. While the amounts of mercury in the cosmetics is typically low, mercury accumulates in the body. Mercury is also readily absorbable through skin. It can also cause symptoms such as irritability, tremors, changes in vision or hearing, memory problems, depression, and numbness and tingling in hands, feet or around mouth.

 

12. Talc

Commonly found in baby powders, face powders, body powders. Talc is a known carcinogen and is a major cause of ovarian cancer. It can be harmful if inhaled as it can lodge in the lungs, causing respiratory disorders. Since the early 1980s, records show that several thousand infants each year have died or become seriously ill following accidental inhalation of baby powder.

Talc is used for its anti-moisture properties.  It is used by the pharmaceutical industry to manufacture medications and is a listed ingredient of some antacids.  Talc is used in smaller quantities in deodorants, chalk, crayons, textiles, soap, insulating materials, paints, asphalt filler, paper, and in food processing.

Talc is closely related to the potent carcinogen asbestos. Talc particles have been shown to cause tumors in the ovaries and lungs of cancer victims.

Talc poses a health risk when exposed to the lungs. Talc miners have shown higher rates of lung cancer and other respiratory illnesses from exposure to industrial grade talc, which contains dangerous silica and asbestos. The common household hazard posed by talc is inhalation of baby powder by infants. Talc is used on babies because it absorbs unpleasant moisture. Clearly, dusting with talcum powder endangers an infant’s lungs at the prospect of inhalation. Exposing children to this carcinogen is unnecessary and dangerous.
