Help Our Furry Friends – Support Animal Cruelty Free Products

Very rarely do I get so emotional over any article. Maybe I’m just a softy or maybe because I’m an animal lover. But this article that I received from an “Animal Cruelty Free” mailing list really shocked me to my bones. The inhumane conditions & experiments that are performed on helpless animals is quiet shocking indeed. Some readers may find this article distressing (as I have found it) be mentally prepared before reading on.

Here is the article below.

“Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: ‘Because the animals are like us.’ Ask the experimenters why it is morally OK to experiment on animals, and the answer is: ‘Because the animals are not like us.’ Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction.”

Is Benzoyl peroxide a Safe Acne Treatment?

Benzoyl peroxide remains one of the most widely used preparations in acne treatment products. When applied topically, benzoyl peroxide works by releasing oxygen to the pores of the skin to help kill off the acne causing bacteria (p – acnes) which cannot survive in an oxygen-rich environment. It is also a powerful exfoliator that removes dead surface skin cells and clearing up pore-clogging debris that causes blackheads and whiteheads.

Does Sunscreen Prevent or Cause Skin Cancer?

Statistical research has revealed that skin cancer rates in Australia are the highest in the world. The argument can be made that the level of UV light today is higher than it was 50 or 100 years ago due to a reduction of the ozone layer. Or you can blame it on environmental factors such as elevation, latitude, and cloud cover. Or better still, you can even make the argument that people with fair skin, with a northern European heritage appear to be most susceptible for sun burns and skin cancers.

All are valid arguments, but there is still no denying the fact that the highest incidences of skin cancer actually occur in countries where the use of chemical sunscreens containing benzophenone and oxybenzone and PABA have been promoted the most. The irony is that the chemical sunscreen industry makes money by selling sunscreen lotion products which is promoted to prevent skin cancer, but the ingredients used actually contain cancer-causing chemicals.

Organic Sunscreen vs Chemical Sunscreen vs Physical Block Sunscreen

When deciding to buy your next sunscreen lotion, you have 3 choices. An Organic Sunscreen, a Chemical Block Sunscreen or a Physical Block Sunscreen. Each have their own effective way to filter out the sun’s harmful UV radiation.

Let’s start off by looking at how a chemical sunscreen works.

Chemical sunscreen work by absorbing ultraviolet rays before they reach the skin’s surface by converting it from light to heat energy. Chemicals such as benzophonones, oxybenzone and cinnamates are used as such UV absorbing ingredients. However, there is a real question mark on the safety of it’s use as research have shown that the use of chemical sunscreen is linked to the higher incidence of skin cancer due to its free radical generating and DNA/hormone discrupting properties.
