Body Care Ingredients to Avoid! The Good Guide's List.
Okay... I'm sitting at work. I don't know if I've mentioned it before, but I work at a Staybridge Suites, which is owned by the same company that owns Holiday Inn. Anyways, the brand of mini shampoos and lotions that we use is Simply Be Well. Since they're just sample bottles, I was online looking for the ingredients and came across this website, Good Guide. I think I'm going to love this website.
They have a chart on the side of the page that I'm on with Ingredients to Avoid and Ingredients that Raise Concern. Its not a very lengthy list... in fact, SLS's aren't on there at all. But I wanted to share these ingredients with you.. that way if you're looking at the ingredients on your products, and you see one of these, you know to stay away.
Here's the list!
Ingredients of Concern
- Airedale Blue D
- Benzyl Alcohol
- Carbon Black
- Diethyl Phthalate
- Diethylene Glycol
- FD&C Violet 1
- Triphenyl Phospate
Review After Yesterday
So, I'm proud to announce, that my hair is still beautifully soft. And it was a little easier to style today. Too bad I didn't have more time to perfectly straighten my hair! But while I was getting around, my sunburn was bothering me a little, and I had an extra couple of minutes, so I decided to go ahead and try the sunburn remedy that I posted yesterday! If you wanted to check that out, use this link to be connected directly to the article, and then the remedy is under the Hair/Skin section.
What I did was I went ahead and mixed a teaspoon of white vinegar with a teaspoon olive oil. I went ahead and put it in a garden spray bottle that I had empty (being green is about being resourceful!!), so the bottle was obviously way bigger than I needed. I shook it up and then just sprayed it on my shoulders after my shower. Boy, did it feel cold! Especially considering that neither ingredient was in the refrigerator. The mixture beaded up on my skin. It looked pretty cool. I ended up rubbing it in a little because it just wasn't absorbing with those big beads. My shoulder's haven't been stinging. And I can tell that the olive oil is still slowly soaking in. Like, I can still feel it on my shoulders, but they're not super oily anymore. But not really sure which method I would prefer compared to aloe vera.
