TresViva has the anti aging process down to a science. Literally. With leading knowledge of Stem Cells derived from Growth Factors, it’s no wonder that TresViva’s Premium 2-Step Anti Aging System is one of the best skin-rejuvenating systems on the market. But not all cosmetics are created equally. Many mainstream skincare products don’t filter out the junk, leaving your skin to absorb harmful chemicals. At TresViva, we guarantee to be sulfate-free, FD&C dye-free, paraben-free, and cruelty-free. Read below to discover the truth about these dangerous ingredients, and the harmful treatment of animals, that are found in everyday cosmetics.
It’s widely known that approximately 70% of skincare products contain sulfates. What exactly are sulfates? Essentially, sulfates are detergents, or surfactants. They help you get that rich lather of bubbles that remove the buildup of dirt and oils on your skin. When you’re looking at your ingredient list, look for the most common culprits: Sodium lauryl sulfates (SLS) or sodium laureth ether sulfate. They’re bubbly texture may make them seem harmless, yet they are the number one skin irritant. Since they are basically a degreaser, they remove all oils–even the natural ones. Prolonged use of a sulfate-rich product can lead to dryness, redness, and excess acne.
FD & C Dyes
The acronym stands for Food, Drug, & Cosmetics Association and are a set of synthetically produced colors. These are harmful for your skin, for they are made from coal tar. Toxic, heavy metal salts from the coal tar can become absorbed into the skin, causing irritation and loss of oxygen for your skin cells. While the majority of these have been banned by the FDA, there are still some dyes that are legal. Regardless, would you want to put a coal tar derivative on your face? TresViva didn’t think so, that’s why it’s free from all FD & C Dyes.
Parabens are one of those nifty inventions from the 1950’s. While parabens were made with the good intention of extending the shelf-life of cosmetics and skincare products, they can be detrimental to your skin and overall health. The three most common compounds are butylparaben, methylparaben, and propylparaben. They have a bad reputation, for they can mimic the hormone estrogen, and it has been linked as a cause of breast cancer. Moreover, since it is a preservative, it can stay in your body for a long period of time. Studies have shown that parabens penetrate the skin and remain in fatty tissues, such as breast. By the way, there’s no such thing as a “natural” paraben. These are man-made chemicals that we can do without.
Animal testing is still a problem, even in 2018. With massive strides in technology and the development of alternative methods, there’s no reason to test cosmetics and skincare products on animals. With access to cells cultures, human tissue, computer models, and volunteers, companies no longer have to test on animals. And testing on animals isn’t just being cooped up in a cage, it’s also the gruesome applications and the adverse reactions. We won’t go into details, but know that when you buy TresViva, you are making a difference.
