Most cosmetics and skin care products are cocktails of potentially dangerous chemicals that could damage our health. Many times instead of delivering on their promises, such as anti-aging, these industrial skin care products actually cause the skin to age faster. Research studies have found that, "the average woman's daily grooming and make-up routine means she 'hosts' a staggering 515 different synthetic chemicals on her body every single day."
The European Union has banned over 1,300 chemicals found in cosmetics.
The FDA has only banned 8 and restricted 3.
Corporate cosmetic spokesman assure the public that any chemicals in their products are present in safe doses that can't harm us. Its unclear whether by safe they mean safe for young people and children, or sensitive adults. While relatively small amounts of synthetic chemicals in individual products might not hurt us, its a different story when one considers the cumulative effect of applying these chemicals to our skin every day, for many years.
It is much more expensive for cosmetic companies to buy ingredients extracted from plants
than it is to buy barrels of synthetic compounds.
COLD-PRESSED, UNREFIEND OILS ARE SUPERIOR TO ALL OTHER OILS
Cold-pressing is a mechanical process where the oil is squeezed out of seeds (all seeds contain oil) in such a fashion that the temperature of the oil does not exceed 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Many oils are refined by heating them to over 245°F, which damages the oil. Berry Beautiful maintains temperatures below 120°F during pressing and we do not refine our oils. Thus, we produce virgin oils of the highest quality where the natural balance of essential fatty acids and the bioactivity of the oil is optimized. Only pressure is used during cold-pressing, no chemicals, no additives.
