Hey girls, not all products are safe! I am not telling you this to scare you off or spoil the market for brands but because cosmetics are poorly regulated and commonly made from untested chemicals. Producers could use almost any ingredient they choose. As a matter of fact, claims like “gentle “and “natural “could be mere adjectives for advertisement hype.

So let’s look at few again and we continue in subsequent posts:

ISONONYL ISONONANOATE- it is an emollient/skin softening agent present naturally in cocoa oil and lavender. It has been declared safe by the cosmetics ingredient Review Expert Panel. So if you see it in any of your skin care products use it but with caution…

HDI/TRIMETHYLOL HEXYLLACTONE CROSSPOLYMER: No wonder almost all primer and foundation has it!  It is an anti caking agent in most lotions, primers and foundation. It has low hazard concern so it is safe for use when used in a minimal proportion. It is not related to cancer risk.

SILICA/SILICA DIMETHYLSILYLATE: This is usually found in many skin/hair care products. It is used to make the skin/hair supple and to prevent brittleness. They are also used as anti caking agents in cosmetics such as: primer, foundation or powder. It is safe and does not pose a risk to cancer.

To avoid having a long boring post, I will stop here and continue in the next post!

If you have any ingredient(s) of concern, kindly drop them in the comment section, I will review and post my findings.

Have a truly restful weekend and give your face a break by avoiding heavy make-up this weekend if you don’t really need it.

PS: kindly shop your original cosmetics at Ewaade Beauty Store

Posted by The Sent Nurse Adenike

I am The Sent Nurse,My real name is Adenike Oladmeji. I refer to myself as “the sent nurse” because I strongly believe I have an assignment not just as a regular nurse but to care for people in their lowest state beyond the physical needs. Also most of my patients fondly call me "the sent nurse"because of the way I have cared for them. The peculiarity of my profession for me is that it has moved beyond being just a nurse that takes care of the body, but one that takes care of the soul/mind and spirit of a human being. I care for the threefold man – the body, the soul/mind and the spirit. I am a very proud and enthusiastic registered nurse, and I currently practice with Roding Healthcare in Lagos, Nigeria. Added to my skill and expertise in taking care of your soul / mind, I am also a certified emotional intelligence, health/wellness and life coach. To further carry my message and passion for both my calling/profession and the three-fold man, I own a blog (www.thesentnurse.com) that focuses on faith and health related topics and discussions. I also speak at events, conferences and seminars, both Nationwide and Internationally. As an entrepreneur, I manage the operations of Ewaade beauty store (@ewaadebeautystore) , a beauty store that operates majorly via social media, providing quality cosmetics and beauty products to every female of all levels. At Ewaade beauty store, enhancing your true beauty is our goal because we believe there is no flaw in you (you are altogether beautiful). We provide you a balance of the best quality and cheapest prices.
