What's dangerous about synthetic chemicals?

Farlig med syntetiske kjemikalier i hudpleie

We know that parabens are dangerous, but are we safe if we avoid only the paraben-containing products?

It's not that simple, today there are an incredible number of different synthetic chemicals (several thousand) with long, complicated names. Here are some of the most common (and dangerous) chemicals in skincare:


Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS)

Is often used as an industrial de-greaser, but also widely used in detergents and cosmetics. This chemical is known to irritate the skin and can cause skin complaints such as eczema. It has also been shown to cause cataracts in adults and inhibit proper development of the eyes of young children.


Propylene Glycol

Is used to provide moisture to the skin, but it is also a carrier for other chemicals, and helps penetrate the skin and it can affect the whole body. Propylene Glycol is known to be used as antifreeze. Not only is it an antifreeze, but it is being used at airports to de-ice planes. This chemical is one of the most common ingredients in cosmetics.



A synthetic preservative. It is known to be a neurotoxin and cause allergic reactions. This is used in many common skincare products and it is easily absorbed through the skin.



Butylated Hydroxytolulene is used as a preservative. It may cause allergic reactions and skin problems. It can also trigger the growth of cancerous tumours.
