Are Cream & Sugar Really Better Than Natural Lotion?
Cream & Sugar are a major cosmetics manufacturer located in New Zealand. It offers a wide range of beauty products, including body creams and body lotions, moisturizers, makeup, skincare, facial care products, skin care items, dietary supplements, and pharmaceuticals. It claims to have the best quality ingredients for all skin types and all skin problems. In fact, over thirty patented skin care formulas are available.
The brand boasts that all of its products are free of all natural ingredients. This claim has been repeatedly proven by dermatologists, medical experts, and the Cosmetic Ingredient Review Expert Panel. Cream & Sugar also claim that most of its creams and lotions contain only natural herbal extracts, essential oils, and mixtures. Only small amounts of synthetic chemicals are used.
However, you should be aware that even if they state that their products are all hypoallergenic, there can be some exceptions. The most commonly used ingredient in many of their products, Sarsaparilla, is an invasive plant native to India and Sri Lanka. It is used in a variety of skincare products as an antiseptic and anti inflammatory. It is derived from the same family as horsetail and has similar characteristics regarding itchiness and irritation.
Another common ingredient in creams produced by Cream & Sugar is saccharin. This ingredient may have been included for its pleasing flavor, or to hide the fact that it was cheaper than sugar. Saccharin is considered a low-grade artificial sweetener. It is listed as a "probable" human carcinogen by the Environmental Protection Agency. In fact, it has been banned in the European Union and Australia. If you suffer from eczema, kidney disease, diabetes, or any other health problem that affects your metabolic functions, you may want to avoid products containing saccharin.
A number of people suffer from eczema. You can also find products that contain fragrances that can irritate your skin. Some of these scented products include cedarwood and eucalyptus. Although they do smell nice, they can cause problems with your nose. Some people are sensitive enough to the smell of these natural ingredients, and they can worsen the condition.
If you want a nice moisturizer that won't make your skin feel greasy, look for products that contain natural oils like grape seed oil, avocado oil, jojoba oil, and olive oil. These ingredients will moisturize without having oily ingredients. Some people have an allergic reaction to certain ingredients, and you may not want to use a product that contains alcohol. Allergies to fragrance may also cause skin reactions.
A moisturizer should not only be good for your skin, but also for your overall health. Moisturizers are good for reducing dryness and replenishing sebum. They help prevent wrinkles and can even slow down the signs of aging. However, you must use a good moisturizer and make sure it does not contain ingredients that may be irritating to your skin. You should also keep in mind that most cream and lotions on the market should not be used on broken skin, as it can be too harsh.
A good moisturizer is often better than a cream and sugar-free variety, especially if you have extremely dry skin. Remember that your skin type is very important when selecting a moisturizer for your face, neck, and body. You can read what other people have to say about different creams and lotions by looking at the labels. However, if you choose a cream & sugar-free variety, you may want to add a little milk-based moisturizer to give your skin a creamy, but not oily look.
