"Often alkyloamides (MEA, DEA, TEA, MIPA and PEG’s) are used as thickening agents, emollients and emulsifiers in moisturisers. They are manufactured by using fatty acids as the starting material. This is not considered toxic, however during this manufacturing process, can become contaminated with nitrosamines which are considered to be carcinogenic. Butylated hydroxianisole (BHA)/Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) are often added in as synthetic antioxidants in moisturisers. BHT is a suspected human carcinogen. BHA and BHT both act as a synthetic estrogen or xenoestrogen. Up to 13% of the BHT is absorbed through the skin. Another “nasty” that is often added to body lotions and creams is Disodium EDTA. This ingredient is often used in sprays, powders, body lotions and creams. This toxin is cytotoxic and weakly genotoxic (causing DNA mutations), although not carcinogenic. It has also shown to be a reproductive toxin. Oxybenzone is classified as a “chemical” sunscreen agent but is often added to help preserve the integrity of other cosmetic ingredients, preventing their deterioration under the sun. It can be found in body creams and lotions. Oxybenzone is a photocarcinogen, it has demonstrated an increase in the production of harmful free radicals and an ability to attack DNA cells. In short, we really should avoid using body creams and lotions that contain any of these chemicals (ref: www.ewg.com)".
