Since last year I have an obsession with natural beauty products. It all started when I got allergic reactions from a product that I used for years. But it really took a while before I found out I was allergic for that product. The doctor said that it was a new product that I had used. But it turned out not to be that new product. Since I was young, I always had a sensitive skin, so I didn´t want to spend more time on it. A month has passed, when I read an interesting article in the newspaper. This article was about a warning from dermatologists. Dermatologists warned that the preservative methylisothiazolinon could gave you allergic reactions. So I went seeing the ingredients of my product, which I knew they give me an itchy skin. And yes, in those products were the preservative methylisothiazolinon .
Since then I banned all the products with this preservative in it out of my house. And that was quite a few products. But there are many other products with other preservatives in it , such as parabens .
But why are there preservatives in most beauty products? Mostly for ensuring that the products last longer than a week or two. Are all preservatives or bad for you? No, but some are just worse for you than others. Also, some people are totally insensitive to all preservatives than other people do. If you have a sensitive skin, it is possible to look at the ingredients before buying a new product, it worked really well for me!
Because I am blessed with sensitive skin, my obsession with natural products began. Now I only have the problem that I ‘m not hugely rich, so it is not possible for me to buy every product in a natural product form, but it is possible to buy products with the least amount of preservatives. And that is what I do. So I am now testing all kind of easy available and cheap products to look which one is the best one.
Now you know mine background story or, you can almost assume that I will tell you about all kinds of products, which are cheap and are great for your skin. Curious about what kind of products I use en test, keep an eye on my blog! Byebye
