The article said that the long-term use of face serum and peel off mask containing preservatives will cause the young skin to deteriorate, accelerate aging, and even lead to disfigurement...
These sayings scared the little girl with her expensive cosmetics and fell into deep panic.
So, are these statements inaccurate? What is the truth? Today we come to a detailed chat!
Is preservative-containing cosmetics really harmful?
It depends on the dose. Preservatives are substances added to inhibit the growth and reproduction of microorganisms in cosmetics. Most of them have a certain degree of irritation and toxicity, and long-term exposure does cause certain harm to the body.
However, the 2002 and revised versions of the 2007 and 2015 editions of the Hygienic Standards for Cosmetics have long drawn up cosmetic antiseptics in restricted substances and have clearly defined specific limits.
Therefore, as long as it is a regular channel, the regular brand of cosmetics, its internal anti-corrosive agents have undergone rigorous testing and control, will not cause harm to our skin and physical health. Except for some very sensitive skin or contact dermatitis.
And those cosmetics that do not add any preservatives, if they are infected by microorganisms, may have a more serious impact on our health.
