AKA 1,2-DIHYDROXYPROPANE; 2-HYDROXYPROPANOL; METHYLETHYL GLYCOL; 1,2-PROPANEDIOL; PROPANE-1,2-DIOL; 1,2-DIHYDROXYPROPANE; 1,2-PROPYLENE GLYCOL; 1,2-PROPYLENGLYKOL (GERMAN) ; ALPHA-PROPYLENEGLYCOL; DOWFROST; METHYLETHYLENE GLYCOL
Propylene Glycol is common to many skincare formulations, cosmetics, body wash, shampoo and conditioner. It is present almost everywhere in the skincare world and is at its most dangerous when combined with other hazardous chemicals and toxins. The result can be very detrimental to your health. Propylene Glycol is known as a penetration enhancer which means that it acts on the skin to enhance the penetration of the product, and any ingredients contained within it.
Propylene Glycol is interesting to review as little information has been made available about this chemical. Strictly on its own, it is thought to be non-toxic. However in combination with other chemicals, as it always is in skincare formulations, it can cause skin reactions and allergies to occur while allowing for deeper penetration of other harmful chemicals. Studies show cancer links; reproductive, developmental and organ system toxicity; and skin, eyes, lungs irritation and allergic reaction can occur from as little as 2% of propylene glycol in a product, however the cosmetic industry panel recommends products containing up to 50% of this chemical is safe! (EWG, 2009)
“Why is this so?” You may wish to ask? The truth is, only the cosmetic giants, government and industry panels can really answer this question. It is similar to trying to understand why there are evidenced harmful chemicals and additives in food when there are so many healthier and more beneficial alternatives. As we saw in an NSA forum post recently from one member trying to get answers from a cosmetic company, they cannot be truthful about why the use of chemicals is so prolific. They simply attempt to pacify the consumer.
The only way to ensure that what goes onto your skin is safe and beneficial for you is to become an Informed Organic Consumer. Empowering yourself with information to make decisions about what you purchase will not only save you time and money, it will also save your health and most importantly, it will allow you to feel more in control of your own life. Propylene Glycol is only one of thousands and thousands of chemicals in your skincare everyday, but it is essential to avoid this chemical.
Check your products now! Can you find this ingredient in any of your skincare, hair care, or body care products or cosmetics? If so, ask yourself, do I feel ok about putting these chemicals onto my body? If you do not, that is wonderful! That is the first step in consciously deciding that you are in charge of what your body ingests, and no-one else. The next step is to become informed. Research through the web, contacting friends or family that you have noticed are interested in making informed choices in their lives and check out http://www.natural-skincare-authority.com to find out the truth!
