The use of botanical skin care products has become far more popular as more and more people begin to become conscious of the effect that various compounds can have on their health in the long term. People want natural compounds to be used in products that touch their body, but is the cosmetics industry complying with this call for a healthier grade of skin care products?

The truth is that the cosmetics industry has never been considerate of the health of the consumer when making their products. They have always relied heavily on the use of chemicals as preservatives, antibacterial agents, and scent producers. That was one thing back before it was known that most of the chemical agents they were using were hazardous to your health.

Since the discovery that the vast majority of the chemical agents in cosmetics formulas were toxins and that a large number were carcinogenic, more companies have been developing botanical skin care products. The vast majority of the cosmetics companies however have not changed their practices one bit. This spells big trouble for you the consumer.

When you are using cosmetics formulas that are laden with chemicals, you are absorbing toxins and carcinogens directly into your bloodstream. Traces of these chemical agents make a home in the soft tissue throughout your body, while the bulk of them are expelled. Over time these traces build up, and that is when you have to worry about the years of using such formulas catching up with you.

The use of botanical skin care products can save you from a potentially life altering illness, but where do you find a formula that you can be sure is trustworthy? My advice would be to seek out a company that is listed as a signer of the "Compact for Safe Cosmetics". This is an agreement that some of the smaller cosmetics companies have signed with the European Union guaranteeing the manufacture of formulas containing nothing but natural ingredients.

The European Union is the only "regulating" body in the world that has been able to secure a ban on the use of harmful chemical agents in cosmetics. The group of companies under the control of the EU is putting out the safest products that you can get your hands on, and one would be wise to take advantage of the formulas that these companies offer.

The botanical skin care products that one company has developed utilizes a mixture of enzymes, zinc protein complexes, and copper protein complexes that have been clinically proven to substantially increase the number of collagen and elastin molecules the body is producing. The introduction of all of this new connective tissue gives you smoother, firmer, wrinkle free skin.

The botanical skin care products this company has developed also features a kelp extract that will allow more hyaluronic acid to become available, which furthers the wrinkle reduction process. Their formulas give you all of the results you are looking for, with none of the dangers inherent of the use of the typical cosmetics products. These products are made the way that cosmetics should be.
