21 of the most toxic ingredients in cosmetics

I know you can google it if you are interested in organic cosmetics, but just for those who have no idea and for myself as a reminder ( of course I almost memorized them all and always check the package before I buy). I wouldn’t write down what harm do they do for hair, skin and entire health (don’t forget that we also inhale it while using), there is plenty of information on the internet.

* Butylated Hydroxythaluene (BHT)
* Butylene Glycol
* Diethanolamine (DEA)
* Dimethicone
* Dimethicone Copolyol
* Cyclomethicone
* EDTA
* Ethylparaben
* Isobutylparaben
* Laureth Sulfate
* Methylparaben
* Mineral Oil
* Paraffinum Liquidum
* Petrolatum
* Phenoxyethanol
* Polyethylene Glycol (PEG)
* Polypropylene Glycol (PPE)
* Propylene Glycol
* Propylparaben
* Triclosan
* Triethanolamine (TEA)

Hope you will find it useful:)

  1. Thank you for this list of 21 ingredients to avoid. It’s a great reminder, and so many people are still not aware of them. If you’d like to check the ingredients in your products before purchasing or using them, you can also check out the phone app for The Chemical Maze to cross check ingredients on the spot while you shop.
