Is sodium lauryl sulfate bad in skin products ? Is using organic or sulfate free products better?

Is sodium lauryl sulfate bad in skin products ? Is using organic or sulfate free products better?

Irritating...: That ingredient makes it a better detergent, perhaps, but also is irritating to skin, eyes. On the other hand, claims about its carcinogenic properties have not been substantiated. Companies are hyping their products as sulfate free to improve their sales. If lauryl sulfate based products are working for you and not causing irritation, I would not worry about that ingredient. ...Read more

Does sperm contains protein which if applied to the face has the same anti-wrinkle benefits as moisturising creams.Does the white stuff tightens skin?

Does sperm contains protein which if applied to the face has the same anti-wrinkle benefits as moisturising creams.Does the white stuff tightens skin?

Stick with the cream: Sperm are just sperm, so small you can't even see them or their wiggly tails (without a microscope). They have no effect on one's face. Sperm oil, however, was very valuable for the making of cosmetics (so was good for women's faces). Sperm oil has been replaced by modern synthetic and plant oils, because sperm oil comes from whales. Stick with the otc moisturizing creams that contain sunscreen. ...Read more

Grapefruit oil, cedar wood oil, and peppermint oil. No concentrations are given. They are not the first ingredients listed. 
?

Yes: Based on the information provided, fetal harm is unlikely, as long as the temperature is not too hot. There is a small risk of fainting from the vasodilatory effect of a hot bath which could cause drowning. Also, some people could be allergic to some of the ingredients themselves. Dipping your toes in the bath for a few minutes to ensure no allergic reaction may help eliminate this concern. ...Read more

What vitamines , mineral or food can given more strength to de blood and body?

What vitamines , mineral  or food can given more strength to de blood and body?

Comes from you: Health doesn't come out of a pill bottle. Every doctor here will agree. I'm with the minority of physicians who thinks a cheap drugstore-chain vitamin-and-mineral supplement is worth a few dollars per year for folks like you who (i hope) eat sensibly. Anything more is wasting money on glitz. You're nearing your physical prime, and a fitness-focused lifestyle will provide your strength. ...Read more

Is the use of flat iron spray w/argon oil and  and lotion for stretch marks w/vite, collagen, cocoa butter safe during pregnancy? Many prods w/alcohol

Yes, however...: All of these should be quite safe. Alcohol should not be significantly absorbed into your skin, certainly not enough to harm your baby. However, some skin products do contain chemicals that can harm fetuses. Visit http://www.Ewg.Org/skindeep/ to check these products (it does mention moderate hazard of flat iron spray due to allergy potential but it has low developmental ; reproductive toxicity). ...Read more

Is it safe to use a cold relief chest rub on a 13 month old there are no parabens mineral oil petroleum or Phthalates. the brand is babyganics?

YES: Most of the time there is no problem once the kids reach a year of age. Occasionally, because they do have thinner and more sensitive skin, there can be some irritation. If that happens just dress them in old PJ's you don't care about and put the rub right on the clothing instead of the skin. ...Read more
