Shopping for Body Care Products? Please Read the Fine Print.

The volume of synthetic ingredients in commercial body care products is overwhelming. Many of us use a virtual chemical concoction each day of washing, shampooing, grooming, moisturizing and deodorizing.

July 21, 2011 - PRLog -- Approximately 60% of substances applied to our skin are absorbed. The effects of regular use and ingredient accumulation are really not fully known.  For those that want to err on the side of caution, the following is a list of  some commonly used synthetic ingredients to avoid:

Sodium Lauryl (SLS)/Laureth Sulfate (SLES)
Propylene Glycol
Dimethicone or other “cones”
DMDM Hydantoin
Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate
Artificial fragrances
Petroleum products
Triethanolamine (TEA)
Diazolidinyl Urea/ Imidazolidinyl Urea
Artificial Fragrances
Artificial Colors
GMO ingredients

It can be a challenge to locate products that are truly natural.  The staff at Spa Mountain Naturals, a natural body care company, offer the following suggestions:

1. Many ingredient labels are quite hard to read.  Take a magnifier with you when shopping.

2. Most product ingredient lists can be found online.  Review these before deciding to purchase.  If these are not available for the products you are considering, e-mail the company and request they provide you with an ingredient list.

3. Make it a project to start researching natural alternatives for each of the products you and your family frequently use.  Products with potent levels of truly natural ingredients can be very effective and pleasant to use.
