The Shocking Truth about Toxins in Skin Care

Your skin is like a sponge – everything you put on it gets absorbed into your body


You might think that because your skin is about one tenth of an inch thick, it protects your body from absorbing the many things you come into contact with.

But the truth is that when toxins are absorbed through your skin they bypass your liver and enter your bloodstream and tissues – with absolutely no protection whatsoever. Think of it like this: when you put skin care on to your face, your blood vessels, sweat glands, and nerve endings soak in the toxins.

When you consume toxins in foods, by contrast, the enzymes in your saliva and stomach can break them down and flush them out of your body. Food also passes through your liver and kidneys. The toxins which make it through are detoxified to varying degrees by enzymes before they reach the remainder of your body.

And some studies suggest skin can sometimes absorb more than your digestive tract. According to evidence presented at 1978 Congressional hearings, the absorption of the carcinogen nitrosodiethanolamine (NDELA), which is commonly found in skin care products, was shown to be more than 100 times greater when exposure came through your skin than via your mouth.

The vast majority of skin care products on the market contain toxic ingredients


toxic-chemical.jpgIt is estimated that over 90% of all commercially available cosmetics contain ingredients of synthetic origin – ingredients directly linked to serious health risks like cancer, infertility, kidney and liver disease and severe skin issues. This is because most cosmetics are designed to be shelf stable – meaning, they’re designed to age on a shelf for 2-5 years.

To make products last multiple years, companies use heat processing and add chemical preservatives, parabens and stabilizers to their products – all of which are not only toxic to your body, but actually kill most of the active ingredients that you are paying for. Studies show that the longer skin care sits on the shelf, the more inactive its ingredients become. Worse, the oils can become rancid and filled with free radicals that actually accelerate the aging process of your skin.

But companies can’t really sell products that contain toxic ingredients, can they?


Legally, they can. Under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic (FD&C) Act, cosmetics and their ingredients are not required to undergo approval before they are sold to the public. This means that manufacturers may use any ingredient or raw material, except for color additives and a few prohibited substances, to market a product without a government review or approval.

Here are the top 8 most dangerous ingredients that are likely lurking in your skin care:

SYNTHETIC FRAGRANCES Skin care products often contain phthalates, synthetic chemicals commonly used to stabilize fragrances and make plastic more pliable. These endocrine disrupters mimic hormones and may alter genital development. Avoid products that list fragrance as an ingredient unless the label states that it’s derived from essentials oils
PARABENS Ubiquitous in skincare, parabens are used to preserve other ingredients and extend a product’s shelf life–but these antimicrobial chemicals also have hormone-disrupting effects.
UREAS DMDM hydantoin and sodium hydroxymethylglycinate are preservatives that release formaldehyde in very small amounts and are a primary cause of contact dermatitis.
1,4-DIOXANE A chemical carcinogen created when ingredients are processed with petroleum-derived ethylene oxide. Common ethoxylated compounds include sodium laureth sulfate and polyethylene glycol (often listed as PEG). To avoid it, skip any product with the following ingredients: myreth, oleth, laureth, ceteareth (or any other -eth), PEG, polyethylene, polyethylene glycol, polyoxyethylene, or oxynol.
PETROCHEMICALS(Petrolatum, Mineral Oil and Paraffin) Derived from crude oil, petroleum-based ingredients such as petrolatum, mineral oil, and paraffin form a barrier when applied to the skin that does not allow it to breathe and clogs pores.
MEA/DEA/TEA Used as foaming agents, synthetic stabilizers, and to adjust the pH of cosmetics, these ammonia compounds can cause allergic reactions, eye irritation, and dryness of the hair and skin.
SULFATES The most common sulfates, sodium lauryl and sodium laureth, are harsh detergents that give cleansers, soaps, and shampoos their latherability. Often derived from petroleum, sulfates are so harsh they are commonly used as garage floor cleaners, engine degreasers and car wash. They are often the cause of acne around the hair line.

Oxybenzone and octylmethoxycinnamate, the main ingredients in most sunscreens, have been shown to disrupt endocrine/hormone activity. Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are safer alternatives.

So the solution is to use natural skin care products, right?


Unfortunately, No. The problem with most natural and organic skin care products is that they simply do not work. Here’s why:

Natural skin care products are typically oil-based and leave the skin greasy with no results. In fact, most commonly used oils in natural skin care products (including coconut oil, mineral oil, corn oil, jojoba oil, soybean oil, castor oil) are pore clogging and can end up making the skin worse. In addition, natural skin care products tend to have very low concentrations of active ingredients so the skin gets very little benefit and sees no visible results, even after many months of usage.

Vasseur Skincare is healthy, natural skin care that actually works


Vasseur Skincare doesn’t force you to choose between safety and effectiveness; it is the only skin care line in the world that is freshly made, professional strength potency and 100% safe and healthy for your skin.


Using living, fresh skin care is the only way to benefit from its full concentration of antioxidants and vitamins


Our cells respond best to skin care ingredients that are enzymatically alive; when ingredients are alive they are able to activate the skin better and penetrate the epidermal layers of the skin much deeper.

In order to keep the ingredients living, heating and chemical preservatives are not an option. Most skin care on the market, however, is designed to have a shelf live for 2-5 years, and thus heating, stabilizers and agressive preservatives are required to extend their shelf-life.

The negative impact on the product is that most of the beneficial nutrients you are paying for are destroyed. And studies show that the longer skin care sits on the shelf, the more inactive its ingredients become. Worse, the oils can become rancid and filled with free radicals that accelerate the aging process of your skin.
