When it comes to skincare, too much of a good thing is sometimes simply unnecessary and even harmful. Skincare specialists and cosmetics consumers are excited about the latest trend on the beauty market: «clean cosmetics» - new, scaled-down products that are gentle on the skin and have as many natural ingredients and as few additives as possible. Read on to find out more.
The more, the better is the motto of many cosmetics users. But it isn't always good for the skin. On the contrary, the older we get, the more sensitive the skin is to overdoing it with skin-care products. As a result, industry experts have become increasingly interested in finding alternatives. The market is reacting to the new pursuit of the «less is more» principle with «clean cosmetics» (abbreviated as CC). Finally, gentle, sensible skincare has a catchy new name. «Pure cosmetics», sometimes also referred to as «safe cosmetics» or «soft cosmetics», are products that do not contain unsafe substances. Although it has not been conclusively proven whether and how the cosmetic substances in question cause harm, it nevertheless makes sense to avoid them, not least because such ingredients neither benefit one's health nor appearance. So why run the risk of impacting hormone levels or even cancer?
EVERYTHING MUST GO!
Parabens may be ideal for preserving creams and other products, allowing the skincare product to last for a long time, but the substances are also thought to cause cancer. So it's better to get rid of them! Silicones are supposed to make the skin feel soft, but they block the epidermis and are not biodegradable; so why whould you put them on your face? Better to get rid of them! Paraffins make lipsticks smooth, but the mineral oils coat the lips like an airtight film, making them dry. Do we need them? No, so get rid of them! Why are surfactants, alcohol, emulsifiers, fragrances and colourings added to cleansers, tonics and lotions? They cause unnecessary irritation of the face and don't benefit your complexion, which is why you can safely avoid these additives and switch to «clean cosmetics».
WHAT'S IN «CLEAN COSMETICS»?
This raises the question: What do «clean cosmetics» contain instead? CC suppliers have access to the same ingredients when manufacturing their skincare products as are required to produce conventional cosmetics. So how do they guarantee their contents are safe? Manufacturers of «clean cosmetics» use preservatives that are better tolerated or omit water in order to eliminate it as a breeding ground for germs. A sterile closure can also prevent a cream from coming into contact with oxygen and bacteria. The important thing is that a «clean cosmetics» product nourishes the skin as naturally as possible. As the name is not a protected term, consumers should take the time to critically study the beauty product's list of ingredients. The shorter the INCI list, the better.
