by Nandini S + India Sutra 13 Aug 2021

Unfortunately, with the growing trend and demand for natural, pure and organic products, there are many false claims that many brands across the globe make.

If this is something that concerns you, you are in the right place.

It’s easy to forget that your skin is the largest organ on your body, and everything that’s put on it ends up in you. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that we should all be careful about what we put on our bodies.

One of the features to check toxic free beauty online is that zoobop lists all the potential toxic ingredients a brand carries across all its SKUs.

Some beauty products can cause a host of problems including hormonal issues, organ toxicity, cancer, as I'm sure you're well aware. We've rounded up 6 reasons why you should be switching to all-natural personal care products.

1. Kind to your health

The results of using toxic products on our skin can be disastrous. You may experience redness, rashes, swelling and burning sensations that are caused by some of the harmful ingredients in dirty formulated cosmetics. To read more about this, check this link.

When checking details of your brand on you can tap on any ingredients to understand why it is good or bad in detail.

2. Kinder to the planet

Of course, dirty ingredients pose the greatest threat at their sourcing, extraction and production stage. This is true both for natural derived as well as lab made ingredients. Do not be under the impression that only synthetic ingredients are bad.

Many natural ingredients are terrible for the planet because their extraction leads to deforestation as in the case of Palm Oil or Petrolatum which is a crude oil. The European Union lists Petroleum Jelly as a carcinogen. Some Synthetics such as Oxybenzone found in sunscreens is a known carcinogen ( cancer causing) and is a serious eco polluter banned in countries because it is not reef safe. At Zoobop we believe in Good for the Planet, Safe for you for personal care products that we show you as cleaner alternatives. A tap on any ingredient will tell you why.

3. Protect your family

Choosing safe, toxic free products online can lower this risk making your home a safer environment.

4. Cruelty-free beauty

In order for brands to be truly clean, they need to be committed to being cruelty free as well. At this is a simple check. No longer do you need to go to several places to check if your brand is toxic free, green, sustainable, certified and cruelty free. Zoobop gives you all the dope in one simple BOP.

Buying verified CF brands helps you make better choices for the planet.

5. Full of nutrients

One of the best qualities about toxic free beauty is that the ingredients are actually good for you. These are full of antioxidants that protect your skin from looking dull and tired and reduce the appearance of signs of aging.

6. Packaging

For a zoobop verified brand, it is important to follow a clean carbon footprint which packaging is hugely important. A brand can it call itself toxic free, if the packaging it uses is cheap and polluting. Let’s face less than 10% of the plastic actually gets recycled. And when it does it gets down cycled. So always look out for sustainable packaging, and brands that have upcycling programs, take back schemes and offer refills. Always upcycle when you can.. And reuse!!!

How to choose toxic free products online:

1. Research

So called toxic free beauty brands are everywhere. However, you need to do your homework and look out for false claims. Bopping is easy and fun and we have done all the work for you.

2. Check Labels

Be sure to check the labels on the back of the product. Ingredients change all the time and brands reformulate. So, it is always good to check the product to see what it lists.

However, not everyone has a chemistry major and reading labels can be tedious! We understand … which is why you should Bop and check the brand score and tap any ingredients listed on the brand page to understand why they are clean or dirty.

Zoobop is a unique, simple, and fun way to read the ingredients of any personal care/cosmetic products.

It uses an ingenious system based on only three steps: 1) type in the brand name 2) click on the bop (see what we did there?) 3) read the ingredients and tap to know if they are safe or nah!

3. Read about the claims

Brands claim a lot of things but how do you know they are not gimmicks? Before you invest in a brand, it is always a good idea to run a background check to verify their claims. Check for regulations and certifications to authenticate these claims.

Zoobop does all the tedious work for you and checks up on all these claims, so you do not get greenwashed by their claims and make a better choice for you and your family.

4. Packaging

Look for more bio friendly and compostable packaging. Glass is also an amazing option since it is reusable.

What are dangerous ingredients to be avoided while purchasing clean beauty products?

There are many companies claiming all good things. One quick peak on any label these days you will find Paraben Free or Sulphate free listed proudly. But trust us when we say this, they are many more dirty villains than just these 2. Look out for:

  1. Synthetic Fragrance
  2. Triclosan
  3. Phthalates
  4. Oxybenzone
  5. Formaldehydes and FRPs
  6. Petroleum based ingredients
  7. SLES
  8. Ethanolamines
  9. BHTs and BHas
  10. Acrylates that are not water soluble
