Meaningful Beauty products are Full of sulphates, sulphates are commonly used in cosmetic cleansers, hair shampoos, bath and shower gels, bubble baths, etc. - It is probably the most dangerous ingredient used in skin and hair-care products. In the cleaning industry SLS is used in garage floor cleaners, engine degreasers, car-wash soaps, etc. It is very corrosive and readily attacks greasy surfaces. Sodium lauryl sulfate is used throughout the world for clinical testing as a primary skin irritant. Laboratories use it to irritate skin on test animals and humans so that they may then test healing agents to see how effective they are on the irritated skin. A study at the University of Georgia Medical College, indicated that SLS penetrated into the eyes as well as brain, heart, liver, etc., and showed long-term retention in the tissues. The study also indicated that SLS penetrated young children's eyes and prevented them from developing properly and caused cataracts to develop In adults. May cause hair loss by attacking the follicle. Classified as a drug in bubble baths because it eats away skin protection and causes rashes and infection to occur. Is potentially harmful to skin and hair. Cleans by corrosion. Dries skin by stripping the protective lipids from the surface so it can't effectively regulate moisture. ....When I initially ordered Meaningful Beauty, I asked if it had sulphates, I was told no. On receiving the order this is what the cleanser contains: Sodium Laureth Sulphate, Sodium Lareth B Sulfate, Magnesium Laureth d-Sulfate, Sodium Oleth Sulfate, Magnesium Oleth Sulfate...lets just add fertilizer to the mix! No mention of that natural exotic melon extract that the French Doctor mentioned in the TV ad..
Another goodie: Propylene Glycol:This chemical is used in industry as anti-freeze, airplane de-icer, and brake fluid. It is also used in thousands of cosmetic preparations as a delivery vehicle and solvent.
When you purchase a drum of propylene glycol from a supplier, that supplier is required to furnish an MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet). The MSDS for propylene glycol says "Avoid skin contact." We are amazed to find this same product in most skin creams on the market.
Recent findings indicate that propylene glycol has severe adverse health effects, and has been found to cause contact dermatitis, ototoxicity, kidney damage, and liver abnormalities in various clinical human and animal studies.
Sulphates are in most store brands, however, there are many products out now without them. I would do your research, as it's important what goes on our skin and bodies.
I would be surprised if Cindy actually uses this on her own skin. It's buyer beware, and don't forget Guenthy is a million dollar company out to push product make profit, and have a famous name to endorse the product, along with so many others.
I have chosen to cancel furthur orders, and choose find a skin care line without the use of sulfates and surfactants
