The Harmful Ingredients to Avoid in Your Skin Care

The typical customer purchases a product without any knowledge of what ingredients are in it. We assume that companies have integrity and use safe ingredients, and unfortunately that’s not the case. Consumers quickly trust marketing and strategic labels and have stopped reading the ingredients list. Basically, just because it says ‘natural’ doesn’t mean it’s true.

We have to take matters into our own hands to ensure that we and the ones we care for are using safe products. That means empowering and educating ourselves on what we put in & on our bodies and how to best take care of ourselves. It takes a little effort, but well worth it when it comes to avoiding the imminent or long term harmful effects of the products & consumables that are popularized in our instant gratification society.

The Abella team is adamant about quality products and does extensive research and campaigns that encourage awareness of ingredients.

After years of expertise in the sun protection world, here’s our list of ingredients to avoid in your sunscreen:

  • Avobenzone
  • Oxybenzone
  • Para-aminobenzoic acid(PABA)
  • Homosalate (HMS)
  • Octocrylene
  • 3-(4- methylbenzylidene) camphor
  • Ethylhexyl salicylate
  • Ethylhexyl triazone

Some of these ingredients such as homosalate and oxybenzone are hormone disruptors that can throw off your body’s natural functions.
