The Well Store is an online beauty store in Australia which was created by Mariana. It was created to fulfil the needs of organic and pure body products and that too without compromising on health. It was created when her mother was diagnosed with terminal illness in 2008. Then she came to know that they are using a lot of toxic chemicals in their products they use on their skin as well as in the food they eat. So Well Store was made for this purpose and it deals in nontoxic and organic products that are also vegan and sustainable.
Nasties is the term used for nasty products which are quite toxic and can harm if used in beauty products. On this website they have mentioned the 10 most used toxic ingredients which you should avoid. Some of them are mentioned below:
- Synthetic Colours: They are derived from tar coal and contain heavy metal salts so they can have a huge impact on your skin as they are quite toxic too.
- Synthetic fragrances: Synthetic fragrances represent an unidentified mixture of ingredients such as respiratory irritants, neurotoxic chemicals and environmental toxicants. These fragrances can be found in all kinds of body care and cosmetic products, they can cause dermatitis and allergies.
- Toluene: Toluene is a petrochemical derived from coal tar and is used in paint thinners, nail polishes and nail treatments. It can sometimes affect your respiratory system and can cause nausea and skin irritation.
- Propylene glycol: It is used in moisturizers, shampoos, hair sprays and sunscreens. It can also cause skin irritation as it is also derived from petroleum.
- Formaldehyde: The most common side effect of formaldehyde in cosmetics is skin irritation, low levels of formaldehyde have been found to cause irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and skin. It is used as a preservative in cosmetics to prevent bacteria growth and can cause headache and fatigue sometimes too.
- Sodium Laurent Sulphate (SLES): This one is the most dangerous of them all as it is used in almost 90% of online beauty store products as a foaming agent and we can find it in shampoo, Body wash and cleansers.
