Cleure is recognized as a leader in the sensitive skin care products category. Founded by Dr. Flora Parsa Stay over 20 years ago, the brand not only formulates safe products for the whole family, but is dedicated to informing and inspiring consumers worldwide to learn how harsh, irritating ingredients found in products used daily, can affect their health.
"According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), sensitive skin affects millions of people." Says Dr. Stay. She continues, "The number one cause of sensitive skin is irritating ingredients used daily in skin or personal care products."
If you have issues with your skin, or experience allergies that you have not been able to manage, going through your bathroom shelves can be a good place to begin. You probably utilize dozens of products every day such as natural toothpaste, nail polish and a vast range of natural skin care products that you would never even think of being the cause of your skin problems.
Reports from the Environmental Working Group (EWG) and other non-profit consumer advocate organizations, indicate there are a number of ingredients that make their way into soaps, lotions, mouthwash and toothpaste that can result in irritation as well as a vast range of symptoms like headaches, hives, nasal congestion and many other symptoms. These symptoms are an indication of something that you are allergic to and this can be anything from the aspirin you take to the shampoo that you use. Many natural skin care products and personal hygiene products contain one of a few various ingredients that can result in sensitive skin complications such as these.
Salicylic Acid is one of the growing problems that you will discover in a vast inventory of products including dental care as well as natural skin care products. Salicylic acid is the main ingredient in aspirin but is also an ingredient in several of the plants that are included into your herbal shampoos, mouthwashes and toothpaste. It is in products that include mint or menthol in them, as well as several of the food products that you consume on a day to day basis. This ingredient has anti-inflammatory properties, which is why it is included in aspirin, skin care and dental products.
Salicylic acid is something that you can be sensitive to or you can develop an allergy to. You may discover that your skin becomes dry, itchy and irritated and this may be the first sign of a problem or you may develop a full allergy to salicylic acid that can result in stomach pain, headaches, complications breathing and several additional allergy symptoms.
An additional product that makes its way into your daily life in natural skin care products and natural toothpastes is sodium lauryl sulfate, this is a foaming agent that makes many individuals assume they are getting cleaner even though it does absolutely nothing for cleaning, but just makes foam. It is an unnecessary agent that according to studies, may cause canker sores, dry skin and dermatitis.
There are a number of additional ingredients in your skin care and personal hygiene products that can cause problems for you, some of these ingredients are toxic and should not be used on your skin, or in your mouth. Nail polish, for example, can have formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates and additional toxic chemicals in them. These are the same nail polish that we used on our children. Instead search for non-toxic nail polish such as Cleure sells that are free from toxic ingredients that might give rise to health complications.
An additional ingredient is 1,4-dioxane that is a carcinogen found in a number of cosmetics and personal care products. Lanolin is also a mutual ingredient and because it comes from sheep it is frequently filled with pesticides and insecticides that can make sensitive people sick.
Dr. Stay goes on with, "Several individuals assume that because a product says it is natural that it is somehow safe, but the natural label is not going to stop you from several of the herbal ingredients that have been believed to cause allergies, irritations or have side effects. Even organic, while promising no pesticides, will not ensure that there are not irritating ingredients that can result in a vast range of skin complications or that you may potentially be allergic to."
If you experience allergies or skin problems you have not been able to eliminate, before you give up it is time try products that are completely free of allergens, irritants and toxic products to see if this could be your issue.
