There is little in life that is more important than the health and safety of you or a loved one. Many of us will spend hours trying to find the healthiest ingredients to cook with, or invest years trying out different weight loss supplements and fitness programs. Being around long enough to see our kids grow and being able to baby sit the grand children is a privilege all of us are looking forward to.
Unfortunately, our health and safety education ends there. There are many products that we use that can potentially be more harmful than McDonalds once a week or not exercising as regularly as we should. The products that we put on our skin have an immense impact on our body.
Multi-Billion Dollar Skin Care Industry
In 2012, the U.S. Skin Care industry raked in almost 55 billion dollars in revenue. That’s right, billion with a B. Historically, the skin care industry has not had the consumer in mind when developing their products. Skin care products like, moisturizers, anti-aging serums, wrinkle creams, acne systems, etc. were all developed with the mighty dollar driving the ship. Meaning they would water down the actives, reducing the effectiveness, and introduce toxic chemicals to the formula in order to bring down cost.
Here at Best of You Reviews, we believe the consumer has the right to know what ingredients are in their skin care products, and what kind of effect this may have long term. There are several cancer-causing ingredients that have been used in skin care products for years long after they were proven to have cancer-causing effects.
Safe Skin Movement
Each review will rate the product on its overall effectiveness, and on the manufacturers efforts to reduce the cancer-causing ingredients. The safe skin care movement is an important one that we all need to be a part of. If we are unwilling to place toxic cancerous chemicals within our bodies, then there is no reason we should have to spread cancer-causing skin care products directly on the largest organ of the body, our skin.
