Introduction

Zia Natural facial moisturizer is a highly toxic natural skin care product. This product's official name is Zia Natural Skincare Daily Moisture Screen SPF 15. The parent company Hain Celestial is a 685 million dollar operation.

Positives?

There is nothing positive about this product according to the ingredient label. The Zia Natural facial moisturizer does not meet any natural ingredient parameter.

It is not certified organic and it uses synthetic chemicals that have been tested on animals. The company outsources animal testers so as not to get their hands dirty. The fact that it is not certified organic - obviously - means that there is a possibility the product contains G.M.O - genetically modified organisms - and pesticides.


Negatives


The Zia Natural facial moisturizer is a chemical soup with many of the ingredients never even tested for safety according to the C.I.R. - Cosmetic Ingredient Review. The chemicals that are certified by the C.I.R have been tested on animals. This is contrary to the false claims made on its website.


Cancer Linkage

Zia Natural Skincare Daily Moisture Screen SPF 15 scores in most toxic parameters. It meets 7 of 12 toxic parameters. This product contains four very toxic ingredients -ceteareth-20, IMIDAZOLIDINYL UREA, HYDROGENATED LECITHIN, PEG-100 stearate - that have been linked to breast cancer and other health concerns.


Penetration Enhancers


Also present are penetration enhancers: CETEARETH-20, DISODIUM EDTA, HYDROGENATED LECITHIN, octyl methoxycinnamate, octyl salicylate, PROPYLENE GLYCOL. These agents work to infiltrate the skin membrane - i.e. penetration enhancer - and in doing so may increase exposures to carcinogens.


Untested Chemicals


Zia Natural Skincare Daily Moisture Screen SPF 15 contains 12 chemicals that have not been assessed for safety in cosmetic formulas by the C.I.R.

These chemicals are: Aloe Vera Gel, GLYCERIN, Allantoin, Xanthan Gum, Squalane, Rice Bran Oil, Jojoba Oil, Cucumber Extract, Soybean Oil, Tocopheryl, Shea Butter, Matricaria Oil.


Parabens


Zia
Natural facial moisturizer also contains parabens, chemicals that have been recently linked to breast cancer in women. This study was reported by the BBC Sunday 11 January 2004.


Recommendation


My advice is this, DO NOT believe the hype and false claims of the Zia Natural brand. This product is just one example across their line of how they hoodwink you, their trusting customer into believing they are natural, or worse still organic.

If you use Zia Natural Skincare Daily Moisture Screen SPF 15 now I strongly urge you to dump it immediately. Companies like these are particularly devious in how they cloak their toxic products in attractive window dressing. Please do no be fooled by the pretty packaging. This product is a health hazard.

One final thing...Think long and hard before filling the coffers of a mega corp that masquerades as a mom and pop business. This company KNOWINGLY uses toxic ingredients in their so called natural skin care product lines.

Take your hard earned money elsewhere and maybe in time Hain Celestial in time will learn not to put their customer's health at risk. If you use or continue to use this product you may suffer a myriad of health effects in the long term, according to the F.D.A. toxic grades.

Alternatives

There are legitimate alternatives to toxic products like these. You can make your own moisturizer products using natural ingredients.

Or, if you are someone who likes the peace of mind that your natural skin care products are certified organic I would refer you to the top rating Miessence facial moisturizer.
