The Lowdown on the Skincare Cosmetics Industry

The skincare cosmetics industry is huge business these days. These companies are making a fortune, mostly at the expense of uninformed consumers. People are spending a lot of money on these products and it is time that people became more educated on what is the difference between bad ingredients and good ingredients are.

Look at your medicine cabinet; is there a whole bunch of unused anti aging skincare products in there? You have bought products that you thought would work but the just would not work as advertised. You may have noticed Hollywood celebrities promoting the latest greatest skin creams. Large skincare cosmetics companies spend a fortune on advertising and it works. People buy these products like crazy. However, do you really think that the celebrity really uses a brand name product?

The main reason these skincare cosmetics products do not work is the ingredients they use. These ingredients can cause rashes, skin irritation, dryness and acne. Some of these ineffective ingredients include mineral oil, fragrances and preservatives or parabens.

Mineral oil is used in many skincare cosmetics because it is a cheap additive and it will leave your skin feeling soft. However, it will clog your pores, which could lead to acne breakouts.

Effective skincare cosmetics should not contain fragrances. Fragrances can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions. Anti aging skincare, products should not contain parabens either. These preservatives are added to give the product a longer shelf life. This just means that the product will sit on the shelf until it is sold.

If you educate yourself on what you should avoid in a skin care product, then you should also be aware of what the safe ingredients are. You should be using anti aging skincare creams containing natural ingredients.  

Here are some of the best natural ingredients. Functional keratin, which is found in a substance called Cynergy TK. If you have a product that contains this then chances are it will help reduce the lines and wrinkles associated with the aging process. Other very effective natural ingredients include grape seed oil, Manuka honey, and fish oil and phytessence wakame.
