The skin is an organ too and absorbs allergens just like your stomach does. Please be careful what you put onto your body as much as what you put into your body;in make-up, skincare, haircare, weight loss products, vitamins and supplements. We do not have to be careful of only products like mineral oil and animal products and byproducts in our toilletries and skin care, we must also be aware of our allergies and sensitivities. Remember too that there are many names for products. For example, take a look below at all of the various names for SOY:
Hydrolyzed Soy Protein (common name: Soybean) Hydroylzed Soy Protein Maleated Soybean Oil (common name: Soybean) Soy Lecithin (common name: Soy Lecithin) Soy Lecithin (scientific name: Soy Lecithin)Soya Lecithin Soybean (scientific name: Glycine Soja Oil) Soybean (scientific name: Glycine Soja Protein) Soybean (scientific name: Hydrolyzed Soy Protein) Soybean (scientific name: Maleated Soybean Oil)
Granted, most of those names contain the word soy, but would you know that Glycine Soja Protein is soy? Here is another example. Here are various names for Wheat:
Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein PG-Propyl Silanetriol
Wheat (scientific name: Triticum Vulgare Germ Extract) Wheat (scientific name: Triticum Vulgare Germ Oil) Wheat (scientific name: Triticum Vulgare Starch)Please note that ingredients may have more than one name and could possibly be listed under these various names; therefore, please do not regard any of these product lists for certain ingredients as comprehensive.
