¿Ftalatos en tu skincare?

Los ftalatos o ésteres de ácido ftálico son un grupo de productos químicos industriales utilizados para la fabricación de plástico, para hacerlo más flexible o resistente, pero también se utilizan para extender la duración y dar aroma a skin care, perfumes, lociones, cremas, sueros, velas, body sprays, limpiadores de tu casa, detergente de ropa, suavizante y en la mayoría de productos plásticos para el hogar, en skincare y cuidado del cuerpo su uso es sumamente común y  normalmente lo usan para disfrazar el aroma neutro de los ingredientes utilizados.

Se usan en muchísimas marcas aún en las que se promocionan como naturales, limpias, libres de sulfatos, clean beauty.

Normalmente los sintéticos que se usan como fragancias que no son puras ni con estándares de calidad  elevados generalmente no incluyen la hoja de seguridad y la gran mayoría de las veces incluyen ftalatos disfrazados en aromática y no se indica en la materia prima como tal.

Son mucho más económicos obviamente que la aromática real y auténtica de extractos, absolutos botánicos y fitocompuestos aromáticos, la diferencia de precios entre marcas normalmente es por la calidad de ingredientes,  aún que a primera vista sean los mismos.

Es por eso que tu ropa tiene un olor «fresco» durante semanas después de haberla sacado de la secadora, el aroma de tu shampoo, spray, productos de estilizado,  dura todo el día en tu cabello y ese perfume que se vende como natural pero te dura todo el día y aún en días siguientes sigue estando penetrado en tu ropa.

Los ftalatos mantienen los aromas y perfumes por mucho tiempo a diferencia de la aromática real y auténtica sin ellos.

Lo importante es que sepas que la exposición  a los ftalatos presenta riesgos. Más aún si los usamos constantemente en artículos de limpieza, detergentes de ropa, suavizantes, skincare, perfumería, aromatizantes de casa como velas, atomizadores, inciensos, infinidad de veces al día, constantemente.

Según decenas de estudios clínicos (no es por opinión personal) se han relacionado con una serie de problemas de salud que incluyen asma, trastorno por déficit de atención con hiperactividad, cáncer de mama, obesidad, diabetes tipo 2, bajo coeficiente intelectual, problemas de desarrollo neurológico, problemas de comportamiento, trastornos del espectro autista, desarrollo reproductivo alterado, desbalance hormonal  y problemas de fertilidad masculina. En la UE son parte de la lista de los ingredientes restringidos que aún hoy se siguen usando en toda América.

En la parte inferior dejaremos la lista completa con referencias.

En nuestra marca somos libres de ftalatos, podrás estar seguro de que en cada uno de nuestros productos no los encontrarás, y que al usar nuestras velas aromáticas, perfumería, skincare, bodycare, haircare, makeup es zona segura libre de ftalatos para ti y para tu familia.
