Chemical ingredients in beauty products:

The Environmental Working Group in a survey of more than two thousand adults found that the average woman encounters 168 chemical ingredients in her beauty regimen everyday. In the case of men, such ingredients were recorded at nearly 85.

With 90% of the 10,500 different chemicals used in personal care products, which have not been evaluated by the FDA for safety, it's impossible to feel comfortable while our skin is potentially absorbing many chemicals which could be harmful to skin. Some of these chemicals can harm the environment, too.

We should not take comfort with such consolation that beauty products contain small amounts of toxic chemicals. Even "active ingredients" that promise most benefits for our beauty make up just 1% of most beauty products being sold in the market.

The fact remains that we're using these products regularly, essentially creating a stockpile of some chemicals in our bodies which may only cause harm after long use. Some preservative chemicals used in cosmetics (like parabens) have been shown to mimic the hormone estrogen, contributing to a number of health related issues, especially for mothers breast feeding their children. Pregnant mothers can pass along the effects of some chemicals to their unborn off springs.

Herbally Radiant has, therefore, been promoting use of safe and beneficial organic skin care products. It is manufacturing herbal organic products in US according to its own formulations. These are receiving very encouraging response from the customers.  A special mention could be made of the anti-acne formulations in its Clean range (Cleansers, Toners, Serum and Scrub), which have been developed to fight acne and related problems.These special products are being patented by Herbally Radiant to prevent misuse by counterfeiters.
