Fetelor cucuietelor!

Ce mai faceti?


astea sunt siteurile pe care le gasisiem si le studiasem. Inca nu am renuntat la vis.

Deci am inceput paralel cu cosmeticalele chimice (am sa le numesc) sa folosesc naturale acum cam 3 sapt. ...e bine deocamdata.

Bubulina, uleiurile vegetale trebuie sa fie extrase din prima presiune la rece. Cel mai bine e sa alegi produse si materii prime biologice.

Revin mai tarziu cu mai multe informatii, acum trebuie sa fug!

Buna la toata lumea!

E momentul sa fac bilantul pe sapt asta.

Am folosit shea butter, care imi place la nebunie. Mi-am mai luat p cutie de la L'ocitane. Hidrateaza ff bine.
Mi-am luat si un facial kit de la Burts bees. Imi plac ca arata dragut:) ! Am incercat doar repair serumul ca de asta eram eu curioasa. Mi se pare mai bun ca cel de la neal's yard care l-am folosit prin urmare pt corp. Imi lasa fata fina , in rest nu imi dau seama inca. Cred ca am tendinta sa folsosesc cam mult. Asta ar trebuie sa poata fi folosit si sub ochi, dar am impresia ca ai mei se irita. O sa vaz pe parcurs.

Stiu, ca am zis ca nu vreau sa-mi pun legume din buactrie pe fata, dar am facut-o! Mi-am folosit acele comprese de la shiseido imuiate in lapte. Si nu am vazut nici o diferenta de cind sunt folosite in serul original:???? hm...o sa le continui sa le folosesc...

Azi hmm..mi-am pus ulei de masline pe fata. Nu stiu de ce, pt ca am experiente proaste leagte de asta. Accitiva ani am folsoit pt par, de fapt poate si 2 ani si fara nici un rezultat. Dar de adata asta a fost wow mi-a plactut senzatia!

hmm, iti multumsec anegelito ca mi-ai atras atentia in ceea ce priveste uleiurile. Am scris la compania respectiva si mi s-a rapuns ca fososec solevnti doar pt "absolute" (ei vind ceva "rose absolute") - unde folosesc hexzane , si ca uleiurile vegetale sunt cold pressed. Astea care zici tu obtinute prin prima presare la rece sunt "extra virgin oils O sa scriu s ama lamuresc si aici...

Revenind la kitul de la Burts bees sunt oarecum incintata. Toate produse sunt de cel putin 95% naturale, ceea ce e un pas mare la mine.

M-am gindit sa-mi cumpar uleiuri vegetale deocamdata: probabil cel de jojoba (o sa -l folosesc si pt par, e out of stock acum) si cel de migdale dulci. Am sa le folosesc si pe post de demachinat si crema de casa. M-am dat intr-o diminaeta cu serul de la burts bees si mi-a lucit fata:) toata ziua. Dimineata voi folosi pe moment creme din comert. Pana atunci mai am de terimnat o caruta de creme (pe care nu ma lasa inima sa le arunc avind in vedere ce scumpe au fost)(IMG:http://www.elady.ro/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Bravo, Bubulina, pentru intrarea pe taramul naturalului, ca sa zic asa (IMG:http://www.elady.ro/forums/style_emoticons/default/322.gif) !

Intr-adevar cu niste produse ca untul de shea si uleiul de jojoba nu ai cum sa dai gres (mai ales daca sunt bio). Cat despre cremele de zi, incearca Lavera daca ai pe la tine (toata lumea e incantata de crema Basis Sensitiv sau ceva de genul asta, si de crema cu morcov, care am inteles ca si coloreaza nitzel...).

Natural Ingredients

If there is one cosmetics industry buzz word that gets almost immediate consumer attention, it’s “natural.” Whatever preconceived or media-induced fiction someone might believe about natural ingredients being better for the skin has no factual basis or scientific legitimacy. Not only is the definition of "natural" hazy, but the term isn't even regulated, so each cosmetics company can use it to mean whatever they want it to mean. "If a company wants to call their products natural, it can, and it doesn't matter what they contain. [The] FDA has tried to establish official definitions for the use of certain terms such as “natural” but its regulations were overturned in court. So companies can use them on cosmetic labels to mean anything or nothing at all." (Source: FDA Consumer Magazine, August 2000).

In the world of skin care and makeup, the claims about all-natural products are either exaggerated because the products are laden with lots of unnatural ingredients, or the natural ingredients they do contain are problematic for the skin. Just because an ingredient grows out of the ground or is found in nature doesn’t make it automatically good for skin, and the reverse is also true, just because it is synthetic doesn’t make it bad. Yet there are many beneficial natural ingredients for skin, which makes the whole issue more confusing because consumers are often at a loss (or simply don’t have the time) to determine which natural ingredients are helpful and which are harmful (and more products than I care to count contain a frustrating combination of both).

Fruits, vegetables, or any pure food ingredients are not necessarily the best for skin. When it comes to skin care, more often than not, it is some small element of the plant that has benefit for skin. Extracting this component from the plant almost always requires a process that is synthetically derived. Further, these extracts are far more stable than the whole food. Think about it this way: a plant in its pure form isn’t stable in the least, especially in skin-care products. Just think of how long a head of lettuce lasts in your refrigerator. It would be far worse sitting on the counter in your bathroom! Regrettably, natural or plant-based preservatives have extremely poor antimicrobial or antifungal properties. Complications for skin due to a product being contaminated are a serious consideration when it comes to how a product is preserved.

Many companies claiming to be all-natural are anything but. They achieve the appearance of being all natural by listing a natural ingredient description in parentheses next to the more technical-sounding ingredient on their label. Although this appears to be helpful information, it still leads consumers in the wrong direction. For example, ammonium lauryl sulfate, a standard detergent cleansing agent, is listed on an Aveda ingredient label as being derived from coconut oil. While that makes the ingredient sound natural, what the label doesn’t explain is what the coconut oil has to go through to become ammonium lauryl sulfate. Ammonium lauryl sulfate is the salt of a sulfuric acid compound, neutralized with an ingredient like triethanolamine. None of that makes this ingredient bad for skin, and I wouldn't tell anyone to avoid ammonium lauryl sulfate, but that is the more accurate description of that ingredient and it just isn’t “natural”. Along with this deception, products from companies that want you to believe they are all natural often, if not always, contain a vast array of synthetic ingredients.

It is important to point out that many natural ingredients can cause allergies, irritation, and skin sensitivities. Just think of how many people have a hay fever response to a wide variety of plants, and observe how many of these plants show up in cosmetics. Citrus often shows up in skin-care products, but most of us have gotten lemon or lime juice on a slight cut while cooking and know it burns like crazy because it's irritating to skin. Camphor (which is distilled from certain trees), peppermint, menthol, and eucalyptus can all cause an irritant or sensitizing response. All of the following natural ingredients can cause skin irritation, allergic reactions, skin sensitivity, and/or sun sensitivity:

* Almond extract
* Allspice
* Angelica
* Arnica
* Balm mint oil
* Balsam, basil
* Bergamot
* Cinnamon
* Citrus
* Clove
* Clover blossom
* Cornstarch
* Coriander oil
* Cottonseed oil
* Fennel
* Fir needle
* Geranium oil
* Grapefruit
* Horsetail
* Lavender oil
* Lemon
* Lemon balm
* Lemongrass
* Lime
* Marjoram
* Oak bark
* Papaya
* Peppermint
* Rose
* Sage
* Thyme
* Witch hazel
* Wintergreen

The label might say natural, but you could be buying a purely irritating product that might cause an allergic reaction. Simply saying a product is “natural” doesn't tell you anything about the efficacy of the ingredients in a product. Remember, poison ivy is natural too, and I can’t imagine a fan of all-natural products applying that to their skin instead of a benign synthetic ingredient.

The notion that natural ingredients are better than synthetic ingredients is even more distressing, because it just isn't true. While vegetable or plant oils may sound better for the skin, varying forms of silicones (i.e., siloxanes, dimethicones, cyclomethicones) are just as beneficial and offer impressive benefits for the skin. But it's hard to glamorize and advertise a "synthetic," unnatural-sounding ingredient. Silicones show up in over 80% of all skin-care, makeup, and hair-care products you buy. Yet you rarely hear about them because the cosmetics companies think consumers won't find them as sexy or alluring as plants, or oxygen therapy, or cellular repair, or a thousand other marketing angles that have nothing to do with what really works for your skin.

I'm not saying there aren't a large range of natural ingredients that are exceptional for the skin, because there are—lots and lots of them—but the idea that they are the "best” (or only) option for skin is just not reality. If you want to use products that contain helpful, non-irritating natural ingredients, what should you look for? The following natural ingredients (though keep in mind the natural form and, at times, the function of these ingredients may be altered after they’re treated and prepared for use in a cosmetic product) each have beneficial properties for skin, mostly by making dry skin look and feel better or functioning as antioxidants:

* Alfalfa
* Algae
* Aloe
* Andiroba oil
* Apricot kernel oil
* Artichoke extract
* Avocado oil
* Babassu oil
* Bearberry extract
* Beeswax
* Black currant oil
* Black elderberry

* Canola oil
* Carnauba wax
* Carrot extract and oil
* Castor oil (all forms)
* Ceramides
* Chamomile extracts
* Cocoa butter
* Coconut oil
* Cornflower extract
* Corn oil
* Cranberry seed oil
* Curcumin (tumeric)
* Elderberry
* Evening primrose oil
* Flax extract and oil

E un articol al paulei, acum stiu ca ea e si a fost intotdeauna impotriva cosmeticelor naturale, care in general primesc review-uri proaste din partea ei (am rog ea isi promovaeza produsele ei).

Am cumparat coconut oil. Imi place mut, mai mult decit jojoba cred. Fata se simte asa de fina si placuta!

O sa incep cu parul:

Aveam un scalp iritabil, uscat si credeam eu matreata, dinaia care se desprinde in bucati. yuek...o tineam sub control cu vichy..
am folosit cam 1 luna:
ca sampon - aubery oragnics ,cel pt par vopist, numai pe asta lam gasit
uleuri (pre-spalare) - coconut si jojoba
balsam - mai folosesc phyto - revitalising mask parca
mai aplic pe virfuri dupa spalre - jojoba

as vrea sa mai adaug ca am folosit cu mult timp in urma ulei de masline si nu am avut rezultate bune

wow, parul meu e moale, stralucitor
nu m-ai am matreata, pielea capului, neiritata, fara mincarimi, no matreata
parul e fin moale, nu mai devine capita

Mi-am luat unt de cacao de Favisan, poate va intereseaza. Stiu ca e pentru ten uscat, dar ma gandesc ca din cand in nu strica. Scrie pe el ca protejeaza pielea expusa la soare, nu stiu daca sa ma bazez prea mult pe asta.
Poate imi spuneti ce alte intrebuintari are, am vazut ca e in lista de mai sus.

Eu am parul ff uscat si l-am folosit pt par. Pt pielea capul iritata face minuni!
Pt fata trebuie sa fie ff atenta cit si cum folosesti ca e f comedogen. Eu am folosit uleiul si pt corp (ca toate uleurile vegetale lasa pielea ff fina) si pt picioare. Uleiul e mult mai greu decit majoritatea celor vegetale, si in general se vinde, partial rafinat....cred ca asta se aplica si la unt.
Cum spunea LB, poate face minuni pt fata...personal as alege un ulei/unt mai usor pt fata: cel de almond, jojoba si preferatul meu shea butter.
Nu te baza pe micul factor de protectie pe care il ofera, din cite am citit cam la toate uleurile vegetale e (IMG:http://www.elady.ro/forums/style_emoticons/default/nesigur.gif) neglijabil.
Am gresit (IMG:http://www.elady.ro/forums/style_emoticons/default/nesigur.gif) , am crezut ca te referi la coconut butter. De cacao nu am folosit, dar in general sunt valaible datele de la orice alt ulei vegetal.

Am gasit:
Cocoa butter also called theobroma oil is a fragrant, yellow nut butter that is very thick, oily, and forms a highly moisturizing protective layer over the skin. Cocoa butter is the edible natural fat of the cacao bean and is extracted during the process of making chocolate and cocoa powder. It has a mild chocolate flavor and aroma. When applied topically, it creates a barrier between sensitive skin and the environment and also helps retain moisture, thus making the skin soft and supple. Cocoa butter is one of the most stable fats known and contains high concentrations of the anti-aging polyphenol antioxidants that help to alleviate the signs of aging. It is solid at room temperature, but melts at about 76-78 degrees. It melts in contact with the skin, or when placed in a tub of hot water. It makes a wonderful addition to body balms and bath products because of its smooth texture and is a nice massage medium too. Cocoa butter is often recommended for treatment of skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. It helps to heal/prevent scar tissue and stretch marks as it improves skin elasticity. In addition, cocoa butter contains cocoa mass polyphenol (CMP), a substance that inhibits the production of the immuno globulin IgE. IgE is known to aggravate symptoms of dermatitis and asthma. Recent research suggests that massaging the skin with cocoa butter may help relieve stress, boost the immune system, and even prevent cancer. This is because of CMP prevalent in cocoa butter in large quantities. Researchers in Japan reported that CMP inhibits the growth of cancerous cells and tumors by reducing active oxygen levels in the body, and concluded that CMP inhibits the oxidation of LDL (good) cholesterol and the production of inflammatory cells. Preliminary research indicates that CMP actually helps suppress excessive T-cell activity in the immune system, which could help treat skin conditions associated with overactive immune systems, such as psoriasis.

Bun, daca l-am luat acum nu o sa il las sa stea degeaba (trebuie tinut la frigider).
Ulei de migdale am, face f bine in jurul ochilor.
Mai ramane sa iau shea butter, deocamdata am doar o masca de par care contine asa ceva.
Imi place tot mai mult subiectul asta.
Voi le tineti la rece uleiurile/unturile respective?
