The Science of High-Performance Skincare
Skin is our largest organ and performs various vital functions such as protecting internal organs and regulating temperature. It is the first line of defense against the environment.
Our skin is an extremely absorbent structure; therefore, environmental toxins impact it directly. In fact, our skin can act as a transporter for toxins allowing them to penetrate directly into the bloodstream as opposed to toxins that are ingested and filtered out by the liver.
So, managing what you put on your skin should be a high priority.
French Secret® : A New Way to Think of Skincare
Since the end of WWII, the release of chemical molecules into the environment has risen drastically. Many of these toxic molecules find their way into the body through the various products that people use daily, including skincare and household products.
The large luxury brands that dominate the cosmetic industry are mass-market global companies whose products are laced with chemical preservatives in order to increase their shelf life. The average woman uses over 15 personal care products daily, the average man about six. Each product contains an average of a dozen chemicals! Many of these chemicals are carcinogens and neurotoxins.
These products may have the effect of destabilizing our DNA and damaging our cells, thus causing more harm than good. Parabens (methyl, ethyl, propyl, butyl) are used in the vast majority of cosmetic products as synthetic chemical preservatives and are suspected endocrine disruptors. Phthalates are plasticizers that make cosmetics like lotion or nail polish the right consistency and extend their shelf life. They can be found in an astonishing array of products, and emerging scientific studies are linking them to lower hormone levels and reproductive problems in men. Unfortunately, these are just two of the many kinds of toxins that can be found in common skincare products on the market.
This is why we have created the French Secret® line of skincare
Nature Provides a High-Performance Solution
Organically grown plants are used in French Secret® products whenever possible, as well as unrefined vegetable oils and various plant essences. This commitment to wholesome natural ingredients provides you with the highest quality skincare products and specialized formulas that support health and wellbeing.
There are many benefits associated with using natural products on your skin: from improving the health of your skin to contributing to a safer environment. By avoiding harmful ingredients found in mass-market skincare products you will help decrease your chances of redness, irritation and breakouts, along with severe allergic reactions.
Last but not least, you are putting fewer toxic chemicals into the environment, contributing to a safer and cleaner world.
Share the secret... and reap the benefits!
