Applications of Thanaka

This natural product is a remarkable herbal skin conditioner as it can render skin smooth and soft. Apart from its fragrant scent somewhat similar to sandalwood, it imparts curing effect as anti-acne and reduces inflammation. And perhaps of its intrinsic UV-block spectrum when applies on skin, it is accustomed to wear this make-up as a natural sun-block. When applies in the night, this herbal powder provides anti-wrinkle effect.

Organic Face Cream - The Shocking Truth About Antioxidant Face Cream and Organics!
By []Sabrina Fox

Don't fool yourself into believing that just because an ad says, organic face cream that the merchandise is actually organic and safe for you to use. I have looked at the ingredients of many of a so called organic face cream, and I've seen things in them that are not very safe at all.

A word of warning to you, never purchase natural skincare products from either a magazine or from a shopping network. Even if a product claims to be an antioxidant face cream and organic. If you cannot first hand see what ingredients the cream contains, it is not wise to purchase them. There are some very dangerous elements that commonly go into cosmetics, and this is very much a case of what you don't know can hurt you.

I want to give a personal example, in order to drive this important point home. The woman who lives next door to me used to sell natural organic face cream and skincare products from a little catalog in order to supplement her income. After I proved to her what was actually in these products and what they could potentially do, she got a weekend job as a hostess and quit selling the cosmetics.

Most of the natural organic face cream and skincare products that are on the market today are laced with toxins. Many of the commonly used chemicals are recognized carcinogens, and one antibacterial agent is also used in most of the popular weed killers. There is also an ingredient widely used that has can cause respiratory failure and circulatory collapse.

People are buying these natural skincare products in droves because most of them don't understand what to be aware of in a cosmetic. The cosmetics companies don't want an educated customer base, because then they would be forced to begin using more costly organic ingredients in their products instead of cheap and dangerous chemical fillers.

That is actually what is driving these companies to put these toxins in their natural skincare products in the first place; they are more cost effective than safer ingredients. Isn't it nice to know that an industry that rakes in $18 billion dollars of our money domestically is putting their profit margin ahead of not merely our health, but possibly our lives?

The United States Food and Drug Administration is the governing body that is supposed to regulate and sanction the actions of the cosmetics industry here. For this agency to allow these companies to include these deadly chemicals into their natural skincare products is criminal. I say that because they know full well what these companies are doing, and the FDA will do nothing in order to stop them.

There are producers of high quality natural organic skincare products who do care about the health and well being of their customers, but they are located mainly in Europe. The only way to get their fine products is through direct mail shipment over the internet. I know that I said earlier that you should never buy cosmetics products without seeing them first, but hear me out on this one.

The European Union has formed the "Compact for Safe Cosmetics", which through strict regulation guarantees that the companies are providing you with the safest and purest natural organic face cream and skincare products that can be found. If you don't believe me, then go check out these companies for yourself. You won't be sorry that you did.
