Each substance has a precise role in a cosmetic product: either gives it a soft texture to the touch and easy to apply, either gives it stability in the state of cream or gel and does not let the finished product gather, clump, or absorb the moisture of the environment (if it is a powder), or give the cosmetic product a pleasant fragrance or attractive color, and much more.
These potentially toxic chemicals we are talking about and added to cosmetics are antibacterial, coloring, stabilizing, anti-agglomerating, additives. Normally, in a small amount it does not damage the skin and health. But the biggest problem is the cumulative effect they have over time.
Effects of chemicals on skin
The skin absorbs the cosmetics we apply to its surface, but it does not metabolize all the ingredients, and some accumulate and after a while can have toxic effects on our body. In fact, toxic substances in cosmetics can be even more harmful than those in food. From the surface of the skin, ingredients in cosmetics reach directly into the bloodstream and then throughout the body, without first passing through the liver and kidney to be filtered, as it happens with potentially toxic substances in food.

I like to write. It’s a thing that relaxes me very much and frees me from all the tensions. When I write I can say I feel more comfortable with myself. I love small, simple words with great impact. I have graduated the Faculty of Foreign Languages. I like languages and I am developing my language skills. I like to help people and I think writing is the best “helping hand” for people, and I think online writing has helped me achieve this goal. I have experience in translations and writing articles.
