Ageless beauty is what we always desire and want to achieve, right? This is why we try several skin care products in the hope of finding one that can make our dreams come true: a youthful, radiant and glowing skin. However, in our quest for the fountain of youth, we end up using products that pose health hazards and risks to our overall health. What are these skin and body care ingredients we should avoid?
You may have heard of GMOs in the food we eat, but did you know that your skin care or cosmetic products also can contain GMOs? Genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) that are used in skin care products are linked to accelerated aging. According to research it can also cause organ damage, gastrointestinal disorders, immune system disorders, infertility, cancer, allergy, reproductive disorders, autism and digestive problems. Look for a brand when shopping for beauty products that says GMO-free. Shop for brands like BIOVAJ® that uses 100% pure, natural and organic ingredients because they don’t allow GMOs to sneak into their products at all.
Parabens are commonly used as preservatives to increase the shelf-life of personal and skin care products. Yes, it also inhibits the rapid growth of bacteria in beauty products. What’s alarming is its ability to degrade to methanol which may cause skin damage on long term use. In addition, parabens mimic estrogen when applied to the body which, as we all know, has been linked to breast cancer and reproductive issues. Worse, estrogen absorption is many times more potent when applied to the skin compared to when taking it by mouth so the risk of developing cancer increases. When shopping for a safer and less toxic skin care product, keep in mind that pure, natural and organic ingredients are the best and the safest because no matter what, chemicals are chemicals.

Synthetic Fragrances are created in layers and it changes the chemistry of our skin depending on how our skin reacts to it. When we leave the room, your fragrance do too.

What makes BIOVAJ® different from these is that you smell as you..naturally YOU, not like everyone else.
