Ingredients in products do matter. Our skin is the largest organ and it is porous. It absorbs what we put on it. This is why I talk over and over about the importance of using clean, non toxic and petro chemical free beauty and personal care products. You ask “what are petro chemicals”?
The world is full of products that come from petroleum. For example, gasoline, styrofoam, lubricating oils, and many other items are all derivatives of this raw material. How are petroleum and cosmetics related? Mineral oil and petroleum are the basic ingredients in many cosmetic products today. Both mineral oil and petroleum have the same origins in fossils fuels. Cosmetics such as foundations, cleansers, and moisturizers often contain mineral oil. By locking moisture against the skin, mineral oil sits on the skin’s surface and can potentially block pores. This may cause the appearance of pimples because the skin cannot properly ‘breathe’
One popular example of a chemical additive that carries moisture in cosmetics is propylene glycol. It is also a derivative of petroleum. Some products that list this as an ingredient include:
- laundry detergent
In many cases, the long-term effects of many of the chemical additives in our cosmetics are not known. However, other chemical additives are known carcinogens. These types of chemicals can cause cancer in humans. There is no FDA regulation of these chemicals in our beauty and personal care products. Such chemicals include; artificial colors in cosmetics, artificial fragrance, dyes, and plastics. The effects of chemicals and other synthetic ingredients in cosmetics may lead to mild allergic reactions causing rashes and minor skin irritation to more significant problems such as lesions on the skin, cancer, auto immune disease, hormone disruption, infertility and adrenal disorders.
If you have had issues in the past with chemical-laden products, have been through cancer, or are going through it right now, we have your answers. From toothpaste to eye cream we have clean products for all your needs.

Eufora has used its unique blend of botanical extracts and Aloe Vera properties to design the most natural way to keep your hair looking beautiful.
Most products use water as a base but Eufora has raised the performance standard by using certified organic Aloe Vera gel as our product base.

Aloe contains elements that are essential to cellular healing, renewal and growth. Aloe also delivers amazing antibacterial, anti-viral and antiseptic properties.

Along with Aloe Vera, Eufora products utilize the most advanced botanical ingredients available, as well as pure essential oils to fragrance all products for an aromatherapy experience.
