Interest in nut-free skin care products increases greatly during 2013

Of course, a variety of products found in Whole Body already meet the Premium Body Care standard but they will now include the new seal on all packaging. “Our goal is to provide an alternative approach for our customers, so they know that when they see the Premium Body Care seal they are getting safer, higher quality personal care products,” said Jeremiah McElwee, senior global Whole Body coordinator. “”When considering new body care products moving forward, we will focus on select products that meet the Company’s new Premium Body Care standard.” Key highlights of the new Premium Body Care standard include: 1. Preservatives While few are truly benign, some are necessary in body care products, especially water-based products. The Premium Body Care standard allows only milder preservatives that are shown to function properly – such as potassium sorbate and sodium benzoate – yet have a lower likelihood of causing cosmetic-related allergies and sensitivities. Parabens and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives (i.e. diazolidinyl urea, DMDM hydantoin) are unacceptable. 2. Surfactants Used for cleaning, degreasing, emulsifying, conditioning and creating foam, these ingredients often irritate the skin and can remove essential fatty acids. The Premium Body Care standard allows only the gentlest types available, including decyl polyglucose and sodium stearoyl lactylate.

Are your body care products safe enough to “eat”?

There are two major ways that Jahi’s brain death — likely caused by catastrophic bleeding, brain swelling and heart attack, based on family reports — damages the organs, according to Slatkin and other physicians. One is the trauma of the initial injury, called a “sympathetic storm,” which triggers a massive stress response — flooding the bloodstream with chemicals and likely damaging the hypothalamus, a small area at the top of the brain stem that regulates body temperature, appetite and the release of many important hormones. The other is the cascade of later complications, like when a computer crashes. Cellular metabolism goes haywire. So do cardiac and lung function. There is often severe hypertension and imbalances of important regulatory hormones. Even heroic efforts to sustain her, such as a ventilator, can backfire, said Slatkin. “You’re applying abnormal pressure to keep the lungs open and functioning, which creates small tears in the lining of the air sacs and bronchial tree, opening up the possibility of infection.” Every cell in the body is programmed to die, he noted. But the assault of stress hormones, immune dysfunction and massive inflammation accelerates death, he said.

New Market Report: Body Care in Austria – a Snapshot (2013)

In fact, the occurrence of nut allergies in people in the United States has doubled in just over the past decade. One of the possible reasons for this is exposure to nut oils that are used in many lotions. Those deciding to go nut-free out of necessity or desire have a lot of options when it comes to food. But there are less out there in terms of skin care products that are both natural and nut-free. Seeing a need, one organic body care company stepped up and created a nut-free line for both children and adults. Green Envee Organics has seen the popularity of its nut-free skin care products explode over the past year. “People want to live an organic life, and that includes skin care,” Bob Weiss, Co-Founder of Green Envee Organics said. “The introduction of our 5 Elements Skin Care Line over a year ago brought a quality organic, nut-free presence to the market for adults. This was a great addition to the nut-free children’s line that we already offered.” The 5 Elements Skin Care Line is based off of the five basic Chinese elements of Fire, Water, Metal, Earth and Wood. Each is formulated for specific skin types from aged skin to sensitive skin . The entire line includes ingredients that are organic and plant-based.
