3 Dangerous Ingredients in Anti Aging Anti Wrinkle Cream

Lies are profitable! They are also dangerous if cosmetic companies include potentially harmful ingredients in their range, especially the anti aging anti wrinkle cream products. They may even claim they are natural, but they are very often full of dangerous toxins.

If these ingredients are on the EU black list, for example, we are dealing with agents that can cause cancer, birth defects, infertility, dangers to unborn children and finally they may actually be toxic for the skin itself, causing allergies and rashes. Some estimates reveal that about 75% of nutraceutical companies are using these dangerous ingredients and it is mainly to produce cheaper products, and not necessarily for the consumer! Preventing wrinkles seems to be full of risks.

The first dangerous ingredient is glycolic acid which is classified as toxic. A close relation is glyceral hydroxystearate which can actually penetrate several layers of skin and get into the bloodstream. That is the problem with many ingredients as they have that capacity to penetrate and that is worrying especially if we are using these in the long term and on large areas of the body.

The second one is imidazolidinyl urea which tends to form formaldehyde. Formaldehyde can be inhaled and as it can cause cancer, it is definitely to be avoided. We find this ingredient often in anti aging anti wrinkle cream, especially in the so-called moisturizers and body lotions. When formaldehyde is mixed with water, it can act as a preservative but the benefit ends there. The list of dangers from formaldehyde is long and dangerous. They range from asthma, fatigue, dizziness, depression and joint pain, weakening the immune system and causing cancer.

The use of Acetyl Hexapeptide – 8 also known as argireline is the third dangerous ingredient I wanted to warn you about. This is often an active element in the so called ‘botox in a bottle’ formulas. Its great qualities are that it can act quickly in getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles and it is also supposed to stop the depletion of collagen and elastin and is often considered ideal as an anti aging anti wrinkle cream.

Unfortunately the risks definitely outweigh the benefits. Basically the argireline acts as a sort of muscle relaxer and it does this by paralysing the facial muscles, which is exactly what Botox does! As the long term effects are unknown, I would not use any anti aging anti wrinkle cream with this ingredient included.

So there you have it. This is depressing reading so I would advise you to look for a company which is committed to using only safer cosmetics.. By clicking on the link below, you will certainly find that in preventing wrinkles you need never risk your health.
