Daftar Bahan Kosmetik Berbahaya untuk Ibu Hamil

Peneliti Environmental Working Group dari Amerika melakukan penelitian terhadap berbagai bahan baku yang dipakai pada kosmetik untuk memberikan rekomendasi kosmetik apa yang sebaiknya tidak digunakan karena memiliki dampak buruk terhadap kesehatan. Berikut ini adalah bahan baku kosmetik berbahaya dan brand-brand kosmetik yang menggunakannya. Periksalah kosmetik Anda siapa tahu termasuk di dalamnya :

Placenta

Extracts from human and cow placenta can condition skin and hair. Vital to a growing baby in the womb, these same extracts in cosmetics give the body a slug of hormones that may be enough to spur breast growth in toddlers according to a few recent case studies.

Mercury

Given everything we’ve learned over the past 30 years about mercury’s ability to damage brain function at low levels, it’s hard to believe it’s still used in cosmetics. But it is. We found it in Paula Dorf mascara, listed as the mercury preservative “thimerosal.” If you get a little bit of mascara in your eyes or face when it clumps or as you wash it off, you may also be getting a little dose of mercury. Watch out for mercury in eye drops, too. Send a message to companies that use brain-damaging ingredients and avoid these products.

Lead

When scientists recognized that lead harms the developing brain of a child, the government demanded its removal from gasoline and house paint — but not hair dye. This pernicious neurotoxin is in Grecian Formula 16 and other black hair dyes for men. It’s hard to keep all the lead on your hair — studies find residues on door knobs and cabinets. Don’t expose yourself or your children to this one.

Fragrance

It may smell great, but do you know what’s in it? Fragrances are the great secrets of the cosmetics industry, in everything from shampoo to deodorant to lotion, and falling straight into a giant loophole in federal law that doesn’t require companies to list on product labels any of the potentially hundreds of chemicals in a single product’s secret fragrance mixture. Fragrances can contain neurotoxins and are among the top 5 allergens in the world. Our advice? Buy fragrance free.

Animal parts

If fat scraped from the back of the hide of mink and emu isn’t something you’d like to smear on your skin, you may want to avoid mink and emu oil, conditioning agents in sunscreen, shaving cream, hair spray and more.

Hydroquinone skin lightener

On a quest for lighter skin? Take a cue from FDA’s recent warning, and avoid skin lighteners with hydroquinone. This skin bleaching chemical can cause a skin disease called ochronosis, with “disfiguring and irreversible” blue-black lesions that in the worst cases become permanent, intensively black bumps the size of caviar all over the skin.

Nanoparticles

These tiny little inventions are touted as the next green revolution, but we don’t find much sexy or green about untested ingredients that can slide up the optic nerve to the brain or burrow inside red blood cells. They’re found in cosmetics in forms ranging from tiny wire cages called “buckeyballs” to miniscule bits of metals used as sunscreens. Good luck finding them, though — companies don’t have to tell us that they’re in our products, though we found that more than one-third of all products contain ingredients now commercially available in nano forms. And we did find them listed outright on the labels of some sunscreens (nano metals) and skin creams (buckeyballs). Buyer beware!

BUYER BEWARE: We can’t always tell from the product labeling, but you can take a look at our list of products that may contain nanoparticles.

Phthalates

Pronounced “tha’-lates,” these little plasticizer chemicals pack a punch to male sex organs. Whether it’s sperm damage, feminization of baby boys, or infertility, a growing number of studies link phthalates to problems in men and boys. Pregnant women should avoid it in nail polish (”dibutyl phathalate”) and everyone should avoid products with “fragrance” on the label, chemical mixtures where phthalates often hide.

BUYER BEWARE:
Sally Hansen Teflon Tuff 10 Day Nail Color, French White Tip
Sally Hansen Teflon Tuff Teflon Tuff Nails, Wood Violet Cream, French White Tip, Blackberry Wine Frost, Sheer French Pink

Petroleum by products

Surprised to learn that the same factories making gas for your car also make emollients for your face cream? Meet the workhorse chemicals of the cosmetics industry — petroleum byproducts, and the cancer-causing impurities that often contaminate them. These ingredients include carcinogens in baby shampoo (see new research on 1,4-dioxane) and petrochemical waste called coal tar in scalp treatment shampoos. We list a few products and their cancer-causing contaminants here, but use Skin Deep to find more.
