Test Your Products
Do you know what’s going into your skin? It’s a known fact that our skin is the largest organ of the body and is responsible for regulating your external and internal balances. A survey carried out by the US National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health found that 884 chemicals used in personal care products and cosmetics were toxic and estimate that women absorb up to 2 kilograms of chemicals through toiletries and cosmetics over the course of a year. The importance of understanding the ingredients you digest carries through to your skin care products, so be sure to focus on the healthier options...let's see how you do!
1) Take any of your favorite skin care products. Turn to the ingredients and see if you can name the preservatives.
Éminence uses natural preservatives such as honey, glycine derivatives, lemon and salicylic acid and always recommends products that use natural preservatives in place of chemical preservatives. If you can't find it in nature, you won't find it on our labels!
2) What do you smell in your skin care products?
Éminence’s products are bursting with fruit pulp and juices which contain the natural scent of each ingredient. Éminence recommends the use of essential and natural oils as opposed to assorted harmful synthetic fragrances or chemical fragrances.
3) Does your favorite body wash foam up or clean up?
Éminence uses natural cleansing agents that may not foam, however, will cleanse the skin just as well as other cleansers which may use chemicals.
4) Take out your favorite lip balm. Turn to the ingredients and see if it contains shea butter.
Recommended ingredients to keep lips moisturized are shea butter and sunflower seed oil that not only provide hydration but also a sexy sheen for the lips! Naturally occurring peptides also provide a collagen-boosting plumping action that fills in fine lines and makes lips voluptuous.
