Natural and Organic Trends in the Cosmetic Industry
CONCEPTS AND TERMINOLOGY
Butylated Hydroxyanisole (BHA), Triclosan and Triclocarban, Aminophenol, Diaminobenzene, Phenylenediamine (Coal Tar), Parabens,
Polyethylene/PEGs, Retinol products (Retinyl Palmitate, Retinyl Acetate, and Retinoic Acid), Petroleum distillates, Oxybenzone, Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, and Hydroquinone. From skin irritation to liver damage and cancer, we now know that these chemicals cause a variety of health problems.
Furthermore, cosmetics that contain added “fragrance” are also considered to be red flags, as federal law doesn’t require manufacturers to itemize the ingredients in a particular fragrance blend. Many fragrances can trigger an allergic reaction, and some contain chemicals that have been proven to disrupt hormones.
Just about everyone has noticed a trend occurring in the cosmetic industry over the past few years.
New companies are popping up offering green, natural, and organic products, while established players
are moving to market their products as environmentally-friendly and safe for your body. Cosmetics are
broadly classified into basic types such as lotions, creams, emulsions, packs, as well as makeup
products, like foundations, lipsticks, mascaras, and many more.
Many consumers are embracing healthier cosmetics, and have become adept at scanning product labels
for the following harmful ingredients: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS),
Given all of the health conditions that can be caused by toxic ingredients, it is easy to see why the
demand for healthier cosmetics has become so prevalent. However, it can be difficult for consumers to
recognize the difference between Green Products, Natural Products, and Organic Products. Many
don’t realize that these popular buzz words dotting the industry don’t mean the same thing; each of
these marketing terms has a slightly different definition:
Items that are marketed as “green” have been manufactured in a way that’s considered
environmentally friendly. This might mean they use less water than the industry standard, or
perhaps they used recycled packaging. The term “green” does not necessarily make it any safer
for your body, and sometimes not much healthier for the planet.
