Cosmetic Ingredients to Avoid - Articles Surfing

Many cosmetics we use every day are made from ingredients that may have adverse effects on our health. These may be derived from animals, microbes or are by-products of petroleum production. They may cause allergic reactions, contact dermatitis, or you may simply have ethical reasons prohibiting their use. When deciding on a cosmetic purchase, consider if your desired purchase has an all-natural alternative. The Organic Make-up Company has excellent, high quality alternatives to skin care and make-up cosmetics, which are free from all the ingredients listed below.
