Silicones, do your products contain them?

Silicones, do your products contain them? Most people are surprised to find the answer is, yes…


Some Top Sellers with silicones and ingredients like sodium hydroxide, which is a new alarming trend, especially in Anti Aging skin care products. Why? Sodium hydroxide is a lye base (as if that isn’t enough…) and alkaline. Your skin, and many Anti Aging high performance ingredients are acidic, which can affect performance.

Here’s a blog post on some products that contain sodium hydroxide:

Murad Advanced Active Radiance, SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Eye Complex, VERSO Day Cream, Caudalie Anti-Wrinkle Defense Serum & Cru, Caudalie Premier The Eye Cream, Proactiv Complexion Perfecting Hydrator, Algenist Anti-Aging Eye & Genius Cream, and Clarisonic Opal Anti-Aging Sea Serum, Epionce Melanocyte Pigment Perfecting Serum, and Epionce Facial Lotion.
