HIPP Organic ‘FREE FROM’ skincare|REVIEW

The skin product range sounds fantastic and I was super glad to be able to try the Head to toe baby wash and their foaming soap.

If you’ve read the previous blog post you’ll know we were gifted items from Hipp Organic to review but if not here is the box opening:

TWO ITEMS RECEIVED TO REVIEW ARE BABY FOAMING HANDWASH AND HEAD TO TOE BABY WASH

 

HIPP SKINCARE

This skincare range has been specially developed to be free of ingredients sensitive skin doesn’t like and to minimise the risk of allergies.

With all products keep out of reach of children and avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, rinse immediately with clean water. External use only – don’t eat!

 

 

WHY FREE FROM SKIN CARE IMPORTANT?

Free from skincare products are those which are free from one or more of the ingredients typically present in a ‘non-free from’ or everyday high street equivalent, and which consumers may need or wish to avoid.

Those reasons could be health related – such as allergies – or other, including ethical, religious, environmental, or personal preference.

WHAT ARE ALL THE ‘NASTY’ THINGS THEY REMOVE?

Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) 
Is another cheap chemical that is a foaming agent, and exactly the same product is used to degrease our car engines. In the same way as it dissolves the grease on our cars, Sodium Lauryl Sulphate also dissolves and strips the oils on your skin.
If you suffer with eczema or any other dry skin conditions, you will see an improvement in your skin just by avoiding SLS, when looking at your foaming products such as shower gels, shampoo’s, bubble baths, hand soaps and facial washes, you will find SLS is usually the second highest ingredient after water.
It’s a detergent which many with eczema find irritating is typically avoided by ‘free from’ skincare brands. Instead, gentler detergents such as coco glucoside and decyl glucoside, usually derived from coconut, are usually used. SLS-free labelling is common.

The preservatives Ml and MCI are common in shampoos
The same is true of wheat proteins, as these penetrate hair shafts and add volume. 

Parabens
Parabens are a type of preservative, first introduced in the 1950s. They’re used to prolong shelf life in many health and beauty products by preventing the growth of mould and bacteria within them.
Parabens allow products to survive for months, even years, in our bathroom cabinet; however when you use these products, they can also enter your body through your skin!
Parabens are believed to disrupt hormone function by mimicking oestrogen. Too much oestrogen can trigger an increase in breast cell division and growth of tumours, which is why paraben use has been linked to breast cancer and reproductive issues.

Artificial fragrance – Synthetic scents
Represent an unidentified mixture of ingredients including carcinogens, allergens, respiratory irritants, endocrine disruptors, neurotoxic chemicals and environmental toxicants.
These artificial scents can can be found in all kinds of body care and cosmetic products, as well as air fresheners, cleaning materials and laundry detergents. According to the Campaign for Safer Cosmetics, hair products are especially problematic.
More than 95 percent of shampoos, conditioners and styling products contain fragrance as an ingredient. (3) I’m sure you’ll agree that we all want our hair to smell good, but we could do without the use of toxic ingredients.

Micro-plastic particles

Microplastics are very small pieces of plastic that pollute the environment!

Microplastics are not a specific kind of plastic, but rather any type of plastic fragment that is less than 5 mm in length according to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). They enter natural ecosystems from a variety of sources, including cosmetics, clothing, and industrial processes.


PEGs (polyethylene glycols)

Are petroleum-based compounds that are widely used in cosmetics as thickeners, solvents, softeners, and moisture-carriers. PEGs are commonly used as cosmetic cream bases. They are also used in pharmaceuticals as laxatives.
