天然防腐劑 V.S人造防腐劑

大部份日常護膚品由石油副產品及化學成份製成,
當中的防腐劑、人做色素等,會對人體有害。隨著環境污染
日漸嚴重,疑因產品而引致癌症的事例響不絕耳,關注產品
成分的議題才開始備受討論。


人造防腐劑影響抵抗力

非天然的產品則大不同,其內含的石油副產品、乳化劑、
人造防腐劑、人造色素及香料等化學添加物,非但對人體
造成永久損害,排放到環境更會造成嚴重破壞。以人造
防腐劑為列,雖能令產品長久保存,但這些物質即使不會
即時致命,可是長期接觸,會殘留體內,破壞抵抗力,
出現刺痛、痕癢、甚至形成皮膚敏感(接觸性皮炎)
過往有研究顯示,皮膚能吸收防腐劑到皮下組織,
滲入血液中,而人造防腐劑中的苯甲酸類可破壞細胞的
新陳代謝,更有機會引致癌症。

天然防腐劑

然而,我們亦無須從美麗與健康之中作抉擇,天然護膚品
的成份 (如精油、植物底油等) 本身便是良好的防腐劑。
他們內含有維他命E、檸檬酸等具備強效的抗菌、抗氧化的
攻效,可保存產品於一個短時間,亦換來更好的皮膚、
持續的健康,以及美好的環境。
