If you have sensitive skin, then I’m sure you are well-aware that it can be difficult finding skin care products that do not irritate it.
And the way that the whole skin care industry is heading, it’s not going to get any easier finding safe products for sensitive skin. Let me explain what I mean….
In today’s corporate money-hungry world, the number one goal of most skin can companies is to be profitable. And hey, you can’t really blame them I guess right?
Best Lotions for Sensitive Skin
It wouldn’t be worth it for them to stay in business if they were not making any money.
However, the decisions that some companies make in order to stay profitable are questionable (and this even includes companies outside of the skin can industry).
In order to cut costs, many companies will choose to use cheaper ingredients in their products as substitutes for more expensive ones. And unfortunately, consumers have to deal with the consequences that come from doing just this.
The problem with most cheap ingredients that go into skin care products is the fact that they can easily irritate the skin.
Many of the cheaper ingredients used in skin care products are actually byproducts from the production of other types of products.
Tips for Sensitive Skin
For example, mineral oils (otherwise known as paraffin or petrolatum) are used as a moisturizer in many popular skin care products, yet it’s actually a byproduct of making petroleum!
It’s ingredients just like this that have no business being in skin care products. The only reason they are included in so many creams and lotions is because they are extremely cheap to obtain from companies (who would just throw them out anyways).
If you have sensitive skin, then it’s up to you to take a close look at the ingredients that make up a product you’re thinking of getting.
Do your research before making a purchase decision and assure that all of the ingredients are safe for people with sensitive skin.
