When Label Reading Makes Me Chuckle…

It can be truly shocking the price mark up on brand names, and it goes to show that a higher priced product does NOT mean a safer product…

Right here we have a $235 eye cream (that is not a typo), and in it you’ll find all of these toxic offenders. I didn’t even bother listing the slew of ingredients that aren’t necessarily toxic, but they just have no business being around the eye as “filler” ingredients.

  • Concentrated Miracle Broth (what is that? Good question… they aren’t required to disclose it and it can be a concoction of anything)
  • Cholesterol (why?)
  • Hydrolyzed Yeast Protein (why?)
  • Propylene Glycol (main component in anti-freeze)
  • Peg/Ppg-10/1 Dimethicone (ethoxylated silicone)
  • Peg/Ppg-18/18 Dimethicone (another ethoxylated silicone)
  • Alumina (in an eye cream?)
  • Fragrance (Parfum) (thousands of ingredients hide behind those two words)
  • BHT (an incredibly toxic preservative)
  • Phenoxyethanol (an incredibly greenwasher preservative)

You can age backwards without compromising your health with ingredients like these… promise!
