Your SKIN is the largest organ on your body and acts as a barrier, controlling the release of harmful and toxic chemicals while also serving to protect other vital organs, bones and nerves. At SKIN by REGEN, we encourage you to be consciously aware about your skin care products by helping you identify the potentially toxic and harmful ingredients in your everyday skin care regimen.
Every day our skin is exposed to potential carcinogens, toxins and hormone disrupting chemicals, and scientific studies have shown a link to many chemicals commonly used in products available today, to various health issues such as, cancer, hormonal disruption, and reproductive problems that affect the entire family.
Each exclusive hero ingredient in our classic skin care line, is carefully hand selected to create the most benefit to our skin, and therefore to our overall health and wellness, without harmful additives such as synthetics, chemicals or toxins. With every product, beginning at the source, we encourage and support regenerative practices. We work with farmers producing organic, non-GMO, pesticide- and heavy-metal free plants that become healing ingredients in our skin care products to include only the cleanest ingredients you can trust in a Cleanser, Toner, Exfoliator, Serum, Face Oil, Face and Body Moisturizer...................so let's talk SKIN by REGEN.
TOP 3 INGREDIENTS TO AVOID IN YOUR SKINCARE: STEP 1: READ YOUR LABELS!
-PARABENS (METHYL, BUTYL, ETHYL, PROPYL)
Parabens may not be always identified and clearly labeled. There are four main types, primarily used in the form of preservatives. Parabens are found almost everywhere in our every day skin care products, such as moisturizers. Side Effects: Skin aging, DNA damage, hormone imbalances.
-SYNTHETIC / ARTIFICIAL FRAGRANCES
Synthetic and artificial fragrances in the label should always raise a concern. These include literally hundreds of ingredients that are not listed on the label, so you are not sure what toxic and harmful chemicals you are actually being exposed to. Found almost everywhere in our everyday skin care products and many common household products. Side Effects: hyper pigmentation, skin rashes and irritation.
Mineral oil is a pollutant derived from crude oil and is found almost everywhere in our everyday skin care products and many common household products. Side Effects: premature aging and other skin conditions such as contact dermatitis.
Now, Let's learn more about the U.S. FDA and compare regulations on skin care products across the U.S., Europe and Canada:
So What does "FDA-approved" Really Mean?
When reading your skin care labels, you might be surprised to see “FDA-approved” as listed. FDA-regulated does not mean FDA-approved. FDA does not have the legal authority to approve cosmetics before they go on the market, although the FDA does approve color additives used in them (except coal tar hair dyes). However, under the law, cosmetics must NOT be "adulterated" or "misbranded." The FDA has the authority to carry out the inspections on cosmetic manufacturers, but does not require cosmetic companies to divulge such safety information with the FDA. While the cosmetic manufacturer has a duty and responsibility to ensure the safety of each of their products, the FDA does not require any specific testing to measure safety control of the skincare products and listed ingredients.
In comparing regulations between the U.S./ Europe/ Canada, it appears International regulations are much stronger in Europe than the US or Canada. Canada comes in much higher than the US, the sad fact is that as of 2009, the EU has banned 1328 chemicals from being put into their cosmetics and In contrast, as of 2018, the US has banned only 30. The EU is significantly ahead in regulating the cosmetic and personal care industry. Educate yourself about these products and ingredients and again, stick with a company and source you can trust. Now more than ever, it becomes more and more imperative to trust a company to provide only products that are safe for you and your loved ones to put on your body, such as SKIN by REGEN we are bringing to market.
