Sensitive Skin, is it a blessing or a curse? Enjoying Winter

In recent years there has been a steady increase in chemical sensitivity, food sensitivities and environmental sensitivities. Many people's systems are so sensitive they have difficulty finding skincare products that won't cause a reaction. The reactions people experience vary. Some people break out in a rash, while others get headaches or asthma from synthetically derived scents. Most people who experience sensitivity reactions are actually blessed with this early warning mechanism. It is far better to react with intolerance than to discover years later the effects of long term toxic overload from synthetic chemicals in body care and food products. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has developed a database entitled "Skin Deep Report."This database is a valuable tool for consumers who choose to be informed of the toxicity or lack of toxicity of the body care products they use. The database report is quite user friendly. It pairs ingredients in 41,000 products against 50 toxicity and regulatory databases. Products have been scored specifically for the cancer risk, and the potential organ and reproductive toxicity associated with product ingredients.The information is compiled to provide safety ratings and brand comparisons that help consumers choose safer products.

I suggest you go to the database http://www.ewg.org/reports/skindeep2/ and have some fun looking up different products to learn what they are made with and how they score.

If you haven't guessed it already, I am proud to say, Garden of Eve's products have excellent scores.

To learn more about sensitivities to skin care products read my article Sensitive Skin; Switching to Natural Ingredient Products http://www.garden-of-eve.com/pages/articles-sensitiveskin.html.

Further Impact:
Any products we use that are made with toxic synthetic chemicals e.g. body care, food, cleaning products have a detrimental impact on our environment as well. Foods and personal care products end up in human excretions, which along with cleaning products are washed down the drain into our waterways and earth.

Are You Sensitive to Scents?

Although the only scent in Garden of Eve Skincare products is that of pure steam distilled plants, I understand some people's systems are so sensitive they can easily be overwhelmed even by the scents of natural ingredients.

For this reason all Garden of Eve products are available with little or no scent. You can view our no scent products at http://www.garden-of-eve.com/catalog/No_Scent-11-1.html.

Being chemically sensitive myself, I know how difficult and frustrating it can be to find quality products you can use. This is why I developed Garden of Eve skincare products - first for myself.

Now, it is a pleasure for me to help people looking for non-toxic products that benefit their skin. Although most people do very well with my basic formulations, I am happy to customize products when needed.
