ebook” Special correspondent gives matter to be discussed

The recent emission of Special correspondent about the cosmetics bio well stirred up the spirits and sufficiently gave matter to be discussed. Since I wish to place at the disposal on my site from here a fifteen or so days a booklet (ebook) to download precisely covering this subject, this emission thus has me of course particularly interested. Which certification authorizes which practice? It is one of the principal subjects of the booklet to come.

• The emission of Special correspondent related mainly to three subjects; components of synthesis, alcohol and essential oils.

Concerning the differences between the various systems in certification, Special correspondent particularly proposed parabenes and the phénoxyéthanol. Contrary to the BDIH, Ecocert authorized until now parabenes and the phénoxyéthanol as a conservative of the raw materials.

• That many products are stamps „without parabenes nor phenoxyethanol added “, although the reference frame of certification concerned authorized these components for the preliminary conservation of the raw materials, does not allow unfortunately a reassuring step.

• The parabenes and the phénoxyethanol are not authorized any more for the preliminary conservation of the raw materials at this stage. Finally! The consumer has to have patience until 2009 for that. But of the products, whose raw materials pre-were preserved by the means of parabenes or of phénoxyethanol will still remain on the market during a certain time.

How preserves itself it cosmetic natural and bio certified?
Which components of synthesis are authorized?

Even it cosmetic bio must be preserved - it is inevitable. A deteriorated product, which turned, is a harmful product. Without any conservative, the majority of the cosmetic products would be preserved only a few days.

The schedule of conditions Ecocert authorizes:
• 5% of ingredients of synthesis (resulting from a pure synthesis) on the totality of the components.
The authorized ingredients of synthesis are mainly conservatives. Even it cosmetic bio must preserve it is inevitable. A faded product which turned, is a harmful product. Without any conservative, the majority of the cosmetic products would be preserved only a few days.

grainAre the warnings vis-a-vis alcohol justified?

If one considers a founded analysis of the subject, a crucial question would have initially to be raised. The question would be the following one:

• Which are the means of conservation; which are softest? One cannot make the dead end of an evaluation of for and of against, because each substance which destroys micro-organisms can prove to be irritating for the skin, and even harmful, if it is not proportioned knowingly. Spacer

Cosmetic bio: conservatives of synthesis or natural alcohol to ensure the conservation?

• In cosmetic natural and bio, one authorizes only certain very specific means. Among the authorized conservatives in a general way in cosmetic particularly doubtful conservatives like formol liberators and other highly reactive substances are.
The schedules of conditions of the BDIH and Ecocert (the conservation of the raw materials was regulated differently at Ecocert until now) authorize only one restricted selection of conservatives of synthesis for the conservation of the product. These substances can be used, but their use is not obligatory.
• The manufacturers have the choice; to use the authorized conservatives of synthesis or not to use of conservative of synthesis of the whole.
• For the products of cosmetic natural and bio in France, the manufacturers generally use a mixture of conservatives of synthesis like the potassium sorbate, the acid dehydroacetic, of sodium benzoate and the benzylic acool. I evaluate this conservation in a positive way, because they are means of “soft” conservation.
• I on the other hand evaluate the products preserved with alcohol by a better note, why?
• By what the principal argument against alcohol, - qu' it would desiccate the skin, is not bearable.
The glycerin, e.g., is the component main thing of many creams, sold as hydrating creams or a care anti-age. If one applied glycerin in concentration of 100%, it would withdraw hydration from the skin. In quite less concentration, the glycerin has a positive effect.
All is question of proportioning, this revelation of Parcelsus going back to a few hundred years, is always of topicality. It is valid for alcohol, but also for good of other substances.
• For alcohol, the natural aspect also plays a big role. Especially for manufacturers who use mainly alcohol bio. Since alcohol is denatured by natural substances, it is a natural matter, contrary to conservatives of synthesis.

lavenderWhat is what is better?
Alcohol or other means of conservation?

By criticizing alcohol, it would be necessary to answer a precise question. The following one:
• Is what it is preferable to use in the place of alcohol a mixture of conservatives of synthesis like the potassium sorbate, the acid dehydroacetic, of benzoate of sodium and the benzylic acool?
It would also be necessary to take into account that the various conservatives of synthesis are employed in different quantity in the various certified products. Which composition of the conservatives usually used in which quantity is preferable atan alcohol level?
• I do not know any study or any expert which could answer this question. I on the other hand know experts or data which are unanimous on a point; the substances quoted above are the existing conservatives softest.
• With not very moderate warnings one reaches, just like for not very moderate warnings of any substance of synthesis, unfortunately that only one objective: concern. And these warnings also contribute so that essence is lost sight of the fact. Essence could be summarized as follows:
• As regards conservation, the certified products are distinguished, - by their means of overall soft conservation, in a considerable way of the other products.
• Certain manufacturers are able to formulate a whole series of products without any means of conservation of synthesis and even without alcohol, but it is a question of true know-how. Some have the means of thus working, others not.
• When a means of conservation is necessary, alcohol at least represents the advantage of a natural substance, even of biological origin for certain manufacturers.

Are essential oils dangerous?

I remember well that my mother believed in the virtues of essential oils. But I also remember that these oils were under keys and that it made us understand that it was about a very powerful and effective medication. Much of this knowledge was lost today. Essential oils are very effective substances. When for example the oil essential of tree with the seemed a true phenomenon of mode, reactions of allergy in chain followed. By what this oil was used in an excessive way.
• Of essential oils can start allergies? The answer; they can. Is what cosmetic products containing of essential oils can start allergic reactions?
• To answer this question, it would be necessary to analyze precisely what could cause this specific reaction at the person. Was it a specific cosmetic product? Which component of the product is blamed? In which concentration this product does have T it employed in this product?
And the following question arises: which conclusion do we draw owing to the fact that a natural substance can start reactions?
• Nobody would have the idea to remove oranges of the market, because the fact of peeling an orange could start allergies at certain people.
Since many knowledge were lost, it would be useful to wonder whether the products containing of the very effective substances as pure essential oils should not be accompanied of more than information (note).
• Essential oils of the cosmetic products are on the other hand very an other subject. In the cosmetic products, these oils are only part of the product. More information on this subject in the booklet to come…
