Clean Beauty Regime

Clean beauty regime means using products that are non-toxic, natural and safe to use. As so, to have a clean beauty regime there are certain ingredients that you need to avoid as below:

Phthalates: Phthalates such as dibutyl phthalate, diethyl phthalate and bisphenol have been proven to be toxic for our environment and very harmful for the human body. Used in cosmetics, phthalates are supposed to improve the penetration and flexibility of the products but they end up causing damage to the skin.

Fragrance: Fragrances in cosmetics cause an allergic reaction to the skin and include phthalates to extend its shelf life.

Triclosan: Used as an antimicrobial agent and preservative in products such as toothpaste, soaps and deodorants, triclosan is found to be a skin sensitizer that can cause allergic reactions on the skin

Formaldehyde: Present mainly in nail polishes and hair products, formaldehyde is an irritant for the skin and eyes. It is also found to pose carcinogenic risk and cause liver infections.

Parabens: Parabens act as a preservative that helps to increase the shelf life of the products and ensures that you can use the product for a longer period of time. But, parabens are also believed to penetrate into your skin and cause skin irritation, reproductive issues, and hormonal misbalance and have also been linked to breast cancer.
