What's the BIG deal?
A lot of our favorite cosmetic brands add a lot of additives to our everyday products, and well, those additives aren’t necessarily the friendliest to us. Take for instance your favorite soap. I absolutely love the smell of cucumber. Up until I started Radhi Skin, I had no clue what a Phthalate was. To be even more honest, I never even read the label or researched what I put onto my skin.
In short, Phthalates are chemicals used to increase flexibility and strength of plastics, and not often listed among the ingredients on products. How scary is that? Not only is a Phthalate a chemical, but it’s often not even listed on the ingredient list of the cosmetics that you use the most. Knowing that Manufacturers use these chemicals to make their fragrances a bit more vibrant, and gives products a bit more staying power, I made it a goal of mine to make sure I guard my customers from this as much as possible. I can boldly affirm that 100% of the products used at Radhi Skin are made with Phthalate free fragrances, and we’re proud of that.
Another additive we try to stay away from is Mineral Oil. This substance is a petroleum by-product that coats the skin like plastic, clogging its pores. This is incredibly harmful because it interferes with skin’s ability to eliminate toxins, therefore increasing likelihood of acne and other disorders. It’s counterproductive to even have a skin care regimen that include products containing Mineral Oil. We use beeswax and other butters and natural oils to achieve amazing results. Skin that is bogged down with clogged pores is susceptible to outbreaks and infections. Choosing the right products means more than taking their word for it on commercials and social media. Check out the labels and tell me how many of the ingredients are questionable to you.
There are a ton of additives that companies use to stretch their products or make them smell as good as they do. Our skin absorbs 60% of what we put on it and is absorbed into our bloodstream in less than a minute! These numbers alone should make us want to be very mindful of what we use. Natural skincare is not a gimmick, it is a necessity. Check out out our collection and get on the natural skin wave with us. Give your skin the royal treatment today!
