Most cosmetic companies still assume that the human skin provides a sufficient barrier to irritating and toxic substances. In the last few decades, so many studies have been done all over the world that link cosmetic ingredients to cancer and skin disease.
Thousands of medical articles have been written to prove this. The majority of people who suffer adverse effects after using off the shelf cosmetics, soaps, lotions and creams never report it. That’s because it is such a wide spread issue. People just discontinue use just as the package says to.
Consumers are involuntarily being used as test subjects, so it really is up to us to protect ourselves. In my opinion, there are only 2 ways to protect yourself from harmful and expensive skin products.
- Read the ingredients labels and be careful choosing the products you use to ensure they are really chemical free.
- Create your own skin products. But most of us don’t have the time to research, let alone make them.
If enough consumers make themselves aware of what should be avoided in skin care, then the companies that do not stop using the harmful ingredients will eventually disappear.
I am a keen health advocate and all the products I choose to sell through the Gilded Pear store have been thoroughly researched by me and are free from nasty chemicals such as parabens, sodium laureth sulfates, artificial colours and so on.
I’m excited to introduce a new range of gorgeous artisan soaps which are 100% natural and vegan friendly. Every batch of soap is made by hand in small quantities by Etc & Co., an all Australia small family business, using traditional 100 year old soap making techniques which produces a lovely soap that lathers up with lots of soft bubbles and are naturally rich in glycerine to leave your skin feeling incredibly soft and smooth. Safe and gentle for even the most sensitive of skins.
All their soaps are made using natural plant oils and butters such as: olive oil, sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil, shea butter and cocoa butter, naturally coloured with mineral pigments and essential oils for subtle fragrance and other skin benefits.
Nolvadex was taken by my dad because the doctors had diagnosed cancer of kidneys. He was appointed the operation and the doctor recommended this drug. Objectively, it was useful and slowed the increase of tumors. Although we tried to find information about the drug on cheapnolvadexpct.com, at first there were fears because of the possibility of complications in case of cataract. The father is now recovering after surgery. Fortunately, it was diagnosed on time. Side effects are almost not felt.
Artisan soaps make a lovely gift for yourself or someone you care about. Why not give them a try?
Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and happy New Year celebrations.
