Skincare Products and Important Terms on Them
Taking care of skin is a full-time job, and choosing the right products is never easy. Skincare products consist of several ingredients in them. Apart from it, some products come with special tags on them, such as hypoallergenic, flower and plant extracts, cruelty-free, and more.
Getting glamorous skin can be tricky as many people do not know the meaning of these small announcements on the product. At times, these special tags are beneficial for some people, whereas, for some, they can be harmful.
Everyone must know the meaning of the special terms that are often written on skincare products for better results. Ignorance can lead to severe side-effects, as well. Read the list of some of the labels below.
Many products are labeled as hypoallergenic, which does not mean that the product is allergy-free. The term 'hypoallergenic' on the skin-care product means that they cause fewer allergies than other products.
Being less allergic does not mean that the product will be gentler on the skin. It's impossible to get a skincare product that has no allergic reaction on the skin. Hence, be careful you purchase a product.
- Skin-Friendly Ingredients Flower & Plant Extracts
As chemical ingredients have more coarse reaction on the skin, therefore, plant and flower extracts are used to protect skin from allergies. Many products are labeled as ‘Skin-Friendly Ingredients Slower & Plant Extracts, ' which means the product contains ingredients coarse ingredients.
Having plant and flower extracts in the skincare products increase the antioxidants and antimicrobial activities of the product. Using products with this label are mostly safe compared to other chemical products.
- Eco-Beauty Plant Stem Cell-Spiked Skin Care Natural-Made
Skincare products that come with an 'Eco-Beauty Plant Stem Cell Spiked Skin Care Natural-Made' label mean that the product contains stem cells in it. Stem cells are a different type of cell that acts exactly like a human cell. They self-repair and renew themselves. Also, these cells have more antioxidant properties than healthy human cells.
If a product has this label, that means that the product will be rich in antioxidant properties as well. Also, the cells are natural-made and are not developed in the laboratory.
- Cruelty-Free + No Animal Testing
Cruelty-free has no symbolic meaning, which is why companies can use them in any way they want. Typically, cruelty-free means that,
- It means that the products and their ingredients are not tested on animals.
- The final product is not tested, but ingredients were tested on animals
- A contractor animal-tested products or the company is relying on the cruelty results of other companies
- Animal testing was done in a country where it is allowed
- Neither ingredients nor the products are tested on animals for more than 10, 15, or 20 years.
- No certification process was followed to test the products.
If you see cruelty free + no animal testing on the product, do not assume the first thing that comes to the mind. The label has multiple meanings.
