Let's Beat Skin Cancer Together! Avoid Carcinogens (Cancer-Causing Chemicals) in Cosmetics


Remember , you apply many of personal products to your skin - where it is absorbed directly into your Bloodstream. Carcinogens are ingredients or things you are exposed to that could possibly cause cancer.


While the chemicals in cosmetics make us look, feel, and smell better, research strongly suggests that at certain exposure levels, some of these chemicals may contribute to the development of cancer in people. Many of these chemicals are considered hormone disruptors. Hormone disruptors can affect how estrogen are other hormones act in body, by blocking them.Because estrogen can make hormonal - receptor positive breast cancer develop grow.


Skin Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal skin cells. It occurs when unrepaired DNA damage to skin cells (most often cause by ultraviolet radiation from sunshine or taning beds) triggers mutations, or genetic defects, that lead the skin cells to multiply rapidly and from malignant tumors.

The ingredients are commonly used in cosmetic products, so it's important to understand 

exactly how these chemicals interacted with heavy UV radiation exposure to affect the skin cancer.

The study found that common moisturizing cream in mice that had already experienced high doses of ultraviolet (UV) radiation,mimicking the effect of heavy sun exposure (Cancer Researcher UK).

Many are transitioning to natural,organic, or homemade products because they fear toxic ingredients, if infertility and intense skin reactions aren't enough some ingredients found in cosmetics can cause cancer.Carcinogens are ingredients or things you are exposed to that could possibly cause cancer. 


Few Things Should Know about Cancer
- Cancer can develop at any age.

- In 2011, over 900 people died from cancer per day.

- Studies show cancer can be linked to lifestyle.

- There are 200 types of cancer and they each have different causes.

- A person can also be diagnosed with cancer from the environment. 

Cosmetics: Cosmetic as " articles intended to be rubbed,poured, sprinkled, or sprayed on, introduced into, or otherwise applied to the human body. for cleansing,beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance."
This includes skin moisturizers,perfumes,lipsticks,fingernail polishes, eye and facial makeup,shampoos,permanent waves, hair colors, toothpastes and deodorants as well as any component of a cosmetic product. It does not include products used solely as soaps. 


Cosmetics are different from drugs, which are defined as "articles intended for use in the diagnosis ,cure, mitigation,treatment, or    prevention of disease" and "articles (other than food) intended to affect the structure or any function of the body of man or other animals." (According to the US Food and Drug Administration-FDA).


Here are a Few of cancer-causing Chemicals:

A few of cancer-causing " extracts" hiding in many personal care products -

- Parabens
- Lead
- Aluminium
- Formaldehyde (a colourless pungent gas in solution made by oxidizing methanol.)
- Toluene
- Triclosan 

While cosmetics and personal care products are made up of a number of ingredients, there are two groups of common carcinogens chemicals that are being studied for links to breast cancer-

Parabens are chemicals commonly used as preservatives in many cosmetic products, Including makeup, moisturizers, hair care products,and shaving creams/gels. Parabens can penetrate the skin and act like a very weak estrogen in the body- potentially turning on the growth of hormon-receptor-positive breast cancers, but this really doesn't mean much. Parabens have been found in many other tissues because of their wide use.

Phthalates Excessive exposure to phthalates disrupts the endocrine system which is responsible for delivering hormones to the body. This ingredient can cause young women to enter puberty more rapidly which is linked to developing cancer later in life. Phthalates are commonly used to hold color and reduce brittleness in nail polish and hair spray, and also component of many personal care and cleaning product fragrances.

"As if infertility and intense skin reactions aren't enough some ingredients found in cosmetics can cause cancer (carcinogens).Carcinogens create cancer in the body by 

 

mutating cells and damaging DNA"   

Take away from these findings is that you should consider switching to natural and organic beauty care.
Always do your research, check it out and make sure that the manufacture is thinking about  your health and well being. 




" Instead of depending on cosmetics, practice a healthy lifestyle for evergreen BEAUTY."
