It must be admitted that no one likes advertisements for beauty and hygiene products unless they are finely carried out. At the supermarket, be it cosmetics, facial creams or hair products, you should always be wary of the components …
In your bathroom, you have a tendency to favor certain brands of cosmetics and hygiene and beauty products to the detriment of others, believing that it is the image that will make your skin as soft and perfect as possible. Only in short time you find out that it is not real and you have to blame the ad!
Advertising for hygiene products:
The entire cosmetic and hygiene and beauty products industry relies on the symbolism of branding, especially those of celebrities whose bright skin, blemish-free complexion and admirable beauty represent the weapons used by hygiene and beauty brands to sell the dream.
There are exceptions to this trend, such as hygienic and perfumed soap brands, intended for everyday use and whose advertising policy is detached from the influence of celebrities; The DOVE brand is a concrete example.
This brand, in fact, appeals to ordinary women and girls. Unfortunately, the Dove brand is no less hypocritical than all other brands when you pay attention to the composition of the soaps it markets…
Here is why the composition of DOVE soaps is the most harmful, even carcinogenic to a very large extent:
For a very long time, the main motivation that always prompted us to buy DOVE soaps and products was its popular and simple slogans such as “You are already beautiful” rather than saying that you are ugly and that you need this or that product now!
For a company or brand that promotes “True Beauty”, the smallest thing is that there are natural and organic ingredients in the composition of its products, which has never been the case for the products of this brand:
Composition of “DOVE” soap brand:
Water (Aqua), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, distearate Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Chloride, Fragrance (Parfum), Glycerin, Dimethicone, dimethiconol, Acrylates / Beheneth-25 Methacrylate Copolymer, Styrene / Acrylates Copolymer, guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, citric acid, tetrasodium edta, amodimethicone, DMDM hydantoin, PEG-45M, Tea-dodecylbenzenesulfonate, cocamide Mea, Lysine Hcl, Arginine, PEG-9M, Cetrimonium Chloride, Ppg-9, propylene glycol, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Mica (Ci 77019), titanium dioxide (Ci 77891), Yellow 5 (C 19140), Red 33 (C 17200).
If special attention is paid to it, one realizes a reality that is anything but charming and gentle behind the ingredients of DOVE brand soaps!
Clearly, these are the hazards of each component of the DOVE soap brand and to what extent it is an imminent risk to your health:
According to several studies, this chemical is responsible for neurodegenerative disorders and seizures.
It is a chemical irritant to the skin and the main cause of dermatitis following cosmetic use.
This ingredient is made from formaldehyde, a known carcinogen of connoisseurs. In addition, it is an amplifier of skin penetration, which means it dissolves the protective barrier of the skin, paving the way for access of toxins to the human body through the skin pores and easy access to the blood flow. Scientific studies are mixed on this issue, as some approve of it as harmless and others condemn it.
The sodium tallowate, presented in the label component of the Dove soap, is derived from the adipose tissue of livestock. The FDA said this additive as safe and harmless, but according to this same source, GMOs are also great and are not dangerous to humans, which leads to question their credibility.
Sodium Laureth Sulfate:
You will be shocked if you knew that over 16,000 studies have tested the cumulative effect of long term exposure to SLS (Sodium Laureth Sulfate), a component linked to:
- Skin and eye irritation
- Toxicity of vital organs
- Developmental / Reproductive Toxicity
- Neurotoxicity, ecotoxicology, endocrine disruption and biochemical or cellular changes
- Possible mutations and cancer
So leaving this type of soap in your bathroom, at the exposure of your children and family is at your own risk!
