2 Looking for Safe Cosmetics? Say YES to No Toxics Please Let s admit it. Using personal care products (e.g., skin care items, cosmetics, and hair care products) has become a huge part of our daily grooming routines. We ve gotten used to using shampoo, conditioner and soap when we take a bath, applying lotion before we put on our clothes, and spraying ourselves with perfume before we get out of the house. But do we care to know what s in these products before using them? Are we aware that these may contain toxic substances that can potentially cause serious health issues? When it comes to using cosmetics, we have to bear in mind that not all cosmetics and grooming essentials are created equal. Yes, all of them can highlight our best physical features (e.g., high cheekbone, plump lips and deep-set eyes). But not all of them add nourishment to our skin. It s those chemical-based products that we should be wary of because these can trigger allergic reactions and other skin concerns. The Risks of Using Too Much Make-up For those who say they can t leave the house without wearing layers of cosmetics, today s the perfect time to ditch artificial colours and go the natural way. Several researches link cosmetics as one of the leading causes of skin problems, three of the most common of which are the following: Unnaturally oily skin Those who ve tried using oil-based cosmetics, especially foundation, may have observed the sticky look and feel of this product on the skin. Instead of bringing out your natural, youthful glow, oil-based foundation and face powder will only give your face a think and oily sheen. The best way to go if you like to achieve a healthy glow is to go natural. Those with dry skin can follow these six tips to relieve dryness1 and those with oily skin can pick up these beauty routines to manage oily skin2. Skin Reactions The presence of preservatives and fragrances in beauty products can trigger skin reactions, which can either be irritant contact dermatitis3 or allergic contact dermatitis4. Clogged pores Certain types of cosmetics (especially those oil-based ones) clog the pores, trapping in acnecausing dirt and bacteria inside the skin. In the long run, this can cause chronic appearance of pimples, face redness and swelling. Experts recommend the use of non-comedogenic or non-acnegenic make-up to avoid clogged pores and acne. 5 Harmful Chemicals to Avoid When Shopping for Cosmetics Now what exactly are the chemicals that cause these skin troubles? Based on lab experiments, the following toxic substances are the most harmful to the skin: 1. UV-blocking chemicals Although we love sunscreen lotion for their capability to protect our body from direct sunlight, these products may also contain a range of chemicals that can harm the skin. The UV-blocking chemicals in sunscreen creams and lotions can disrupt endocrine system, which is responsible for hormonal functions. Specifically, the most commonly used UV-protection substances include Benzophenone, camphor, para-animo benzoic acid and octyl-methoxycinnamate. 2. Fragrance Yes, we like to use perfumes, lotions, colognes, shampoo and conditioners with refreshing smell. But without our knowledge, these products contain artificial fragrances that can impair our cells defence mechanism, hampering our body s natural way to detoxify. 3. Phthalates Usually found in deodorant, nail polish and hair spray, this chemical can also disrupt physiological processes (e.g., fetal development, endocrine functions). Besides, a research also discovered that women who use cosmetics with high phthalate content are more at risk of diabetes. 4. Parabens Although these are commonly used to preserve foods, parabens can also be found in cosmetics to extend a product s shelf life. Many lab experiments show that the presence of parabens contributes to the development of food sensitivities, high stress hormones in expectant mothers and susceptibility to airborne allergies. 5. Triclosan Otherwise called as Irgasan DP- 300, Ster-Zac and Cloxifenolum, this chemical is most common in hand sanitizers, toothpaste and deodorant. Despite of its germ-killing properties, Triclosan can also get into our system. Tips to Choose to Toxic-Free Cosmetics Knowing the chemical content of regular cosmetics and its adverse effects on the body, it is practical for us to be wary of these chemical-based products. To ensure you ve bought the right items, apply the following tips the next time you go shopping: Read the label s fine print. Beware! Not all cosmetics company stay true to their promise of producing organic or natural products. So to clarify things, take a look at the ingredients list and see if the foundation, powder or lotion you re planning to buy do contain any harmful chemicals (e.g., parabens, triclosan, fragrance). Look for a Certified Organic Logo. Consult the experts and research first before shopping. Before you order cosmetics online or visit the nearest grocery store, make sure to educate yourself regarding cosmetic products. Read up on the latest scientific discoveries about certain components in make-up items. Better yet, consult a dermatologist to help you choose the right cosmetics suited to your ski type, complexion and other needs. Opt for products made by reliable manufacturers. Don t be an avid fan of fad beauty products. To be safe, choose supplies manufactured by reputable companies those who ll bother to apply patents for their products and let third-party authorities check their items first before launching these on the market. Yes, it s certainly a practical decision to say YES to non-toxic beauty products. Doing this is the best way to protect your health, especially from the adverse effects of the disease-causing, and probably carcinogenic, chemicals present in some cosmetics. By steering clear from products with toxins and applying the shopping tips above, you can be more confident in using the items you ve just bought. - Anthony Orpen 2

12 Why Go Organic? 5 Reasons Behind the Healthy Choice Thousands of years ago, organic produce was the only option for our ancestors. There were no agricultural methods used to alter the food they eat. They consumed natural food packed with wholesome nutrients for their body. Nowadays, producing vegetable, meat, fish and other food products involves the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers and geneticengineering. When we eat these unnaturally produced food items, our body may absorb harmful chemicals and toxins believed to cause many illnesses. Fortunately, we saw a set of good changes in recent years. Many farm owners started producing organic food free from artificial chemicals. Health-conscious people, including us, can now switch to eating organic. So, Why Should You Choose To Go Organic? Here Are 5 Top Reasons: 1) No Harmful Pesticides or Chemicals According to the Better Health Channel website, Exposure to chemicals can lead to health effects including headache, poisoning, respiratory illness, burns, cancers and birth defects. Although farm workers are the ones who are mostly vulnerable to exposure, some health studies suggest that the residue of pesticides and other agricultural chemicals can enter our system through food consumption. Meaning, it is best to choose natural and organic food produce free from any type of toxin that can be harmful to our body. 4) High Nutrient Content Based on many studies conducted by nutrition experts, organic food has more nutrients compared to conventionally produced crops or meat. Researchers say that organic fruits and vegetables contain 20% more nutrients and antioxidants based on the daily recommended amounts. If we ll do the math, you only need to eat 5 organic apples if you are required to eat 6 apples a day. Isn t that great? 2) Helps Protect Our Environment If you ll choose to eat organic, you are supporting farmers who are not using any pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. With this, you are promoting the reduction of toxic chemicals released into our environment. Well, if more and more people switch to going organic, we all can make a brighter and cleaner Earth for generations to come. 5) No Genetic Modifications As defined by Australia s Gene Technology Regulator (OGTR), a GMO is an organism that has inherited particular traits from an organism (the initial organism), being traits that occurred in the initial organism because of gene technology. Although many scientists are citing lots of advantages in using GMOs for farming, there are also some great risks for such technique. For example, modified plants may create toxins, allergens or teratogens. These chemicals may be consumed by people and may cause illnesses or other medical conditions. 3) Better Flavor Organic produce, especially fruits and vegetables, have lower level of water and sugar compared to conventionally grown crops. This means they are packed with more intense flavor. In fact, numerous polls and customer surveys here and abroad suggest that organic food does tastes better. Well, based on the list we have provided, organic food is definitely the choice that you should make. So, what are you waiting for? Make the switch now and reap the benefits of going organic! 12
