years people have been promoting the idea of using chemical free products in Canada. The major concern is the presence of potentially dangerous chemicals in our food supply. It’s no secret that many synthetic chemicals are commonly used as ingredients in shampoos, skin and laundry detergents. Even when they are listed as an ingredient, their true chemical makeup is not disclosed. This results in people unknowingly exposing themselves and their families to hazardous chemical residues.
Luckily, there are some chemical free products on the market. They can help ensure that you are getting the safest products possible for your hair, skin and clothing. One of the products that is particularly good for use in Canada is Green Valley’s Healthy Beauty Line. This line uses organic natural ingredients such as aloe, wheat grass and shea butter. It’s important to note that even though the ingredients are organic, they are still considered synthetic chemicals by the FDA because they are man-made rather than naturally occurring.
So what makes a product “free”? There are several regulations in place regarding cosmetics that require a warning or label to be placed on the product. The most common is the expiration date. A label also needs to indicate that the product has not been tested on animals. Just remember, any product with this type of expiration date cannot legally be sold in the US. If it is safe for humans to use, it is safe for animals.
You may be wondering how you can be sure that the chemical free products you find are truly as safe as the manufacturers claim. The best way to make sure of that is to read the product labels and look for a seal that certifies the product as “natural”. The Natural Products Association is the governing body that certifies all natural products. Another convenient resource is The Cosmetic Ingredient Review, which keeps a track of natural cosmetic products in North America.
The only problem with chemical free products is that they can contain certain synthetic chemicals and other synthetic byproducts. In some cases, this can be true even though the product says it is “all natural”. If you are allergic to one or more synthetic chemicals, you should be sure to contact your doctor before using any of these chemical free skin care products.
Of course, you can always choose to make your own chemical free products at home. There are many recipes available on the internet that will make your own natural and organic skin care products. Be careful to not take shortcuts or use a cheap product. The ingredients should be high quality and research the brand you are considering to see if there are any adverse reactions. If so, stop using that brand and look for another one. Most major cosmetic companies do not do testing on their free products.
Chemical free products can be used to improve your skin’s health. Instead of using harmful fragrances and colors, try a light cream made of all natural oils. Avoid harsh, scented cleansers and exfoliators and use a gentle skin cleanser every day. You can also choose to use natural, organic moisturizers and other skin care products. Look for ingredients such as aloe vera, shea butter, avocado oil and jojoba oil.
It is easy to find chemical free products that are high quality. Make sure that you are purchasing them from a reputable manufacturer. If you do your homework, you can easily locate the best products and make the switch to chemical free products yourself. With a little bit of effort and research, you can have beautiful skin without all the unnecessary chemicals that cause you harm. You will be amazed at the difference in your skin and in the quality of the products that you use.
