You don’t need to be a cosmetic chemist to know enough to choose authentically clean and green, natural and organic beauty products.
Evidence, based on wide-ranging sources, indicates that these ingredients may be skin allergens, irritants, hormone-disruptors or potential carcinogens.
It’s important to remember that not all chemicals are bad. After all, water—hydrogen + oxygen = H2O—is a chemical compound! But there are bad ones you will want to avoid, and they are the ones we focus on here.
- Ingredients with PEGs and ETHs in their names (i.e. polyETHylene, polyETHylene glycol, cetearETH-20, etc.)
- Artificial colors (ingredients preceded by FD&C or D&C colors, i.e. D&C Red 30 Lake, FD&C Blue 1)
- Chemical sunblockers (i.e. octocrylene, octinoxate, oxybenzone, octisalate, and avobenzone)
- Ingredients that can release formaldehyde (i.e. diazolidinyl urea, DMDM hydantoin, imidazolidinyl urea, and quaternium 15)
- Parabens (i.e. ethylparaben, methylparaben, butylparaben, and propylparaben)
- Petroleum derivatives (i.e. petroleum, mineral oil, petrolatum, ethylene glycol, propylene glycol, butylene glycol, and dimethicone)
- Sulfates (i.e. sodium lauryl-, sodium laureth-, ammonium laureth-, and sodium myreth-sulfate)
- Toluene (also known as methylbenzene)
- Synthetic fragrances (often listed as “fragrance” or “parfum”)
