How many of you have asked yourself this question? Well; consider this….
When you want to ask a question, you usually look for an answer, or a response. Almost never do you get a response. Then, you ask a question. Never get a response.
And then usually you have a discussion with someone about it, and they tell you why the product is bad for you, and why the product is good for you.
But when you don’t have a response, or when you don’t get a response, you make an effort to research it further. You’ll usually find that the person isn’t a professional. So you have to ask follow-up questions.
This is what I did with my search for the answer to ‘Is d-calcium bad for you?’. I looked at the ingredient list, and I found that the word Sodium Glycolsulphate was listed.
When you see Sodium Glycolsulphate, or any one of thousands of other chemicals that are included in our personal care products, chances are that you will find the word Sodium in the ingredient list.
Sodium is one of the main components of detergents, surfactants, and cleansers. Many of the so-called natural skin care products on the shelves actually contain Sodium, listed as Sodium Polyfucose, or Silypos Extrinsic.
The thing about Sodium is that it is not a natural compound. It is a synthetic form of a sugar, which is derived from the saponification process of sugar cane or sugar beets. What does this mean? Sodium molecules attach themselves to human skin and send a signal to the part of the brain that lines the nerve endings in our skin, telling it to cause fear, anxiety, and dismay. Does this sound familiar?
So Sodium is not something that you would want to have in your natural skin care products. But would you want to put Sodium in the natural skin care products you buy?Again the answer is no. Sodium is often used because it is an inexpensive and is very efficient as a detergent. But Sodium tend to linger in the fabric and skin for a long period of time. Over time the absorbed Sodium will harm your skin.
I urge you to take a close look at the ingredients in your natural skin care products. Don’t simply trust the “natural” label on the product, because it is only telling you what the manufacturer thinks of the product. Read the label carefully. Does the label tell you the name of the ingredients? (ogue) Does the label tell you where the ingredients are located? ( contraindicated)
I am convinced that the information listed on the inside of the label is mostly commanding you to buy the product and that the inside of the label is a straight reproduction of what happens to the soap you make, or the shampoo you use.
There are some things you can do to make sure you that you are buying the best natural skin care products available.
One thing that I always check for when I am shopping is a line of products that includes all natural products that have been formulations using vegetable oils and gentle, underlying plant extracts.
“Because” the ingredients are made to work in synergy together, and if there are any hiddenastingredients inside those soaps and shampoos, they are unknown and vanishingly few.
One other thing that is checks the purity of the soap I make, is glycerin. Glycerin is a wonderful natural emollient that is a mixture of fatty acids. In the big soap making processes, petrochemicals take over 70% of the final product and everything that touches it. So when I see a soap called palm or coconut oil, I immediately think that it is a synthetic. Most soaps on the market have been produced in a synthetic theGergen process, and that is no better.
Glycerin is a more recent addition to theverenergy soap making process. It is neutral, can be used interchangeably with other oils, and does not spoil as quickly.
There you have it. Use what you learn here to make your own natural and organic soap.
