Did you know that the average woman uses over a dozen skin care, hair care, and makeup products containing over 150 ingredients on a daily basis? Did you also know that many of these products contain hormone disruptors and known carcinogens? I’ve got you covered. This is a list of skin care ingredients to avoid. With this quick guide, you’ll get a list of the most common toxic ingredients to avoid, to help keep your entire family healthy!
I’ve always had a youthful appearance. I hated it when I was younger because I wanted to look older. I’m glad that I’ve taken good care of my skin and can get away with looking like I’m still in my early 30’s when I’m… yeah…
Because let’s be honest, our skin can be our best friend and our worst enemy.
Why do some people have healthy and luminous skin and others look like they are melting away? Gorgeous, luminous skin isn’t just about wearing sunscreen in the summer. It’s about taking care of your skin from the inside out.
There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today. Many don’t have any safety data. This is particularly true of those used in the skin care and beauty industry.
What’s worse is that the Food and Drug Administration (the agency that regulates cosmetics in the United States) does not have the authority to remove harmful ingredients from the products we put on our bodies and on our kids’ bodies every single day, day after day.
The United States has not passed a major federal law to regulate the safety of ingredients used in personal care products since 1938.

Over the past two decades, the European Union has banned close to 1,400 chemicals in the product formulas of personal care products and restricted the levels of over 250 more in such products. The United States has only partially banned 30 to date.
I personally choose to use Beautycounter, because they are committed to a health and safety standard that goes well beyond what’s required by U.S. law: They have prohibited the use of more than 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals through “The Never List™” — all while ensuring their products perform and that they’re as indulgent as any other luxe shampoo, lipstick, or oil in the market.
Keep your skin care products clean and simple and look for these toxic-free options. Many skin care products contain chemicals that actually have an adverse effect on the skin (and many are endocrine disruptors – yikes!).
Look for products like those from BeautyCounter which are free of color, fragrance, oxybenzone, DEA, parabens, dioxin, PEG, and phthalates.
