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
