Sustainable products can not contain mineral oil!
Sustainable products are rarely mentioned when people talk about cosmetics. Well, yes, when it comes to the packaging. But who talks about what happens with your foundation, your mascara and your lipstick when you wash them off with a cleanser? Do you have mineral oil in your skin care products? I have an interesting thought here that you might want to take into conciderstion.
You probably know that you are not allowed to put motor oil into the sewer. That is due to its poor biodegradable properties. Do you also know that motor oil IS mineral oil? And that it is more or less resistant to micro-organisms such as bacteria, fungi or enzymes? This means it can not be processed into chemical breakdown by nature. These are established facts. Mineral oils have negative cumulative effects on the ecosystems!
Sustainable cosmetics are here!
What it means is that nature can not handle it. By handle I mean break it dow. Reuse it. Recycle its components, like it does with, lets say olive oil or an orange. Mineral oil is not a natural part of our environment and this could well be the reason your skin has a hard time processing it when you smear it on.
Environmental awareness is putting a spotlight on the he harmful components of mineral oils. Still this aspect is ignored when we talk about cosmetics. I find this strange, to say the least!
I have this question that I’ve asked myself for years now: How many tons of mineral oils are flushed down the drains around the world, when you wash your face and body? What is happening to our subsoil waters as this constant pollution it going on? And how long can mother earth take it?
