Alternatives to harmful ingredients
Parabens are chemicals widely used as preservatives in the cosmetic industry. Published studies have shown that parabens are able to be absorbed through the skin and bind to the bodies oestrogenic receptors, encouraging breast-cancer cell growth, and altering the oestrogenic process in women. This can increase the likelihood of developing oestrogenic -dependent diseases like breast tumours. Furthermore, parabens have been associated with heightening existing allergic reactions, contact dermatitis, rosacea and potentially spurring on the development of skin cancer. Decreased sperm cell count amongst males and problems 2 feet will development in pregnant women have been observed.
Glycerin is a humectant used in the manufacturing of cosmetics, food and pharmaceuticals. Glycerin helps to add sweetness and retain moisture. When used in and around your vagina, glycerin can encourage or "feed" the natural yeast formations found in a woman's body. This potentially can cause an overgrowth of yeast, whether yeast takes over in your body. This is because glycerin is actually a sugar which is the main source of food for yeast. So, therefore, glycerin can in some women be the cause of a yeast infection. While many women may not experience these things, women who are prone to yeast infections are likely to get an outbreak of yeast from glycerin use. Intimate earth offers to glycerin free glide formulas, hydra and defence.
Many personal lubes and arousal serums contain menthol which is derived synthetically. Synthetic menthol is referred to as I-Menthol and is used to create a tingling or cooling sensation. This synthetic form of menthol can be irritating and drying to a woman's clitoris and vagina which can cause pain and discomfort and unwanted interruptions during intimate moments.instead of menthol intimate earth products use Japanese peppermint oil which is gentler on sensitive skin.
