BUYER BEWARE

In love with a conditioner that leaves your hair silky smooth?  Can’t live without a lotion that
keeps your skin as soft as a baby’s bottom?  Before you declare a beauty match made in heaven, take a look at the list of ingredients.

If you find propylene glycol on the list, you’ve got a case of irreconcilable differencesPropylene glycol and humans should not mix and mingle.

Propylene glycol is an ingredient commonly used as a humectant in many beauty products.  It gives products the silky, moisturizing texture that we love.  The Medical Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) states that propylene glycol is toxic to humans and can cause irritation of skin and eyes.

Only small amounts are used in products which leads people to feel more comfortable with it being in their products.  However, using these small amounts in your shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, etc. can turn into a large amount on a daily basis.

It is important to do your research and be aware of what is going into your personal care products because it ultimately ends up going into your body.

Lilikoi Looks has introduced Ms Toi FBI, who is steady on the case for unsuspecting consumers.  Click Here to see the pilot episode as she takes on propylene glycol.

 

Have you ever tried to decipher the ingredients of your beauty products?  If so, you probably felt you needed a degree in chemistry to understand exactly what you were using on your body.  Then comes the realization that the world of beauty and the world of all things natural and organic are very far apart.
