What does that mean? GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism, and refers to plants, animals or other organisms whose genetic material has been changed in ways that do not occur naturally! So what it boils down to is that FARMASI products are made without ingredients that were derived from genetically engineered organisms.
I am sure some have no clue what this means so I will give you a quick explanation. Phthalates are a group of chemicals used to make plastics more flexible and harder to break.
I am sure we all know this is nasty stuff and should not even exist. But guess what it does not exist in Farmasi.
Formaldehyde-free products are products which are not manufactured with the use of formaldehyde, a chemical compound which has been linked with human health problems. Formaldehyde is a highly useful and widely utilized chemical compound, and people are sometimes surprised to learn about all of the places in which it can appear. Awareness about the health risks of prolonged formaldehyde exposure has led many consumers to start seeking out formaldehyde-free products due to safety concerns.
Parabens are a form of preservative that is widely used in the cosmetic and personal care industry. Products like soaps, conditioners, moisturizers, shampoo, and deodorant frequently contain parabens. Chemically speaking, paraben is an ester—a compound molecule formed from a combination of acid and alcohol. Paraben occurs in products in various forms of esters, such as methylparaben, Propylparaben, and butylparaben.
First made as a pesticide, triclosan has been around since the 1960s. In recent years, it made its way into a wide range of personal care items.
Triclosan is best known for its germ-killing power. That’s why it has been used in so many hand soaps and body washes.
In water-based products like aftershave and makeup, it is a preservative. It also helps fight odor, which is why it’s in deodorants and body sprays.
Your toothpaste might have triclosan, too. Colgate Total is the only American Dental Association-approved toothpaste with this ingredient. The FDA approved it after reviewing data showing that it prevents gum disease.
PB Lead Free
Heavy metal that can cause mental retardation, and increase in the rate of infections and cancer by blunting the body’s defense mechanisms (the immune system). Lead accumulates in the blood, bones, and soft tissue and may result in damage to the brain, central and peripheral nervous system, and kidneys. While its suggested threshold is 0.4 part-per-million (ppm) for adults and 0.3 ppm for children, people can exhibit lead poisoning symptoms at 0.2 ppm. Lead intake can occur through water stored in lead pipes, food contaminated by lead in soil, lead-paint flakes, or motor exhaust that contains lead compounds as anti-knocking or performance enhancing additives in gasoline.
Whether you’re an avid beauty and skincare fan or just a regular, everyday basic groomer, chances are that you’ve seen two words on most of your skincare products. Those words are “dermatologically tested”. But what does that actually mean for us and our skin?
If you’re not completely sure what it means, you’re not alone. Which? held a survey that found people thought the term means different things. The survey of 1,000 people showed that a quarter of them thought “dermatologically tested” meant the product was kind to skin, 22% believed it wouldn’t cause allergies and 10% thought the product was less likely to cause skin allergies. With statistics like this, it’s clear that people generally don’t know what “dermatologically tested” really means. Let’s try and shed some light on this much-used term…
What does it mean?
Something that is labelled as “dermatologically tested” means that a dermatologist has looked into how the skin reacts to the product and its ingredients. This term isn’t particularly regulated in any way as there isn’t a standard test, so the method and depth of test can vary greatly.
What does it NOT mean?
Some people are suspicious of products labeled “dermatologically tested”. Why? Well, a quick search on the internet for “what does dermatologically tested mean” and you’ll see many websites looking at if there is a link between this term and animal testing. According to the European legislation of Cosmetics, products must be tested (as far as their safety and efficacy are concerned) on healthy human volunteers in certified clinical laboratories.
GMP – Good Manufacturing Practice
Good manufacturing practices (GMP) are the practices required in order to conform to the guidelines recommended by agencies that control the authorization and licensing of the manufacture and sale of cosmetics. These guidelines provide minimum requirements that a manufacturer must meet to assure that their products are consistently high in quality, from batch to batch, for their intended use. The rules that govern each industry may differ significantly; however, the main purpose of GMP is always to prevent harm from occurring to the end user.
100% Natural No Preservatives/Vegan Free
Vegan means the product contains no animal-derived ingredients, including any ingredients produced by animals. It’s this last clause that differentiates vegetarian and vegan products: Vegetarian products contain no animal ingredients, but they may contain animal-produced ingredients, such as honey or beeswax.
What are Parabens? Parabens are synthetic preservatives used in cosmetics and personal care products and can give many people allergic reactions.
There are many types of Parabens such as propylparaben, methylparaben, and butylparaben; these are synthetic preservatives commonly used in cosmetics and personal care products like shampoos, skin creams, and deodorants. They are suspected to be endocrine disruptors, and they have been found to mimic estrogen in laboratory experiments. Many people have allergic reactions to these preservatives causing skin rashes and irritation. Needless to say, there is a great ongoing debate as to the safety of products containing parabens.
