What product should I use for my skin?
The type of product you use on your face is completely dependent on the type of skin you have. For example, a foaming cleanser can benefit oily skin by cleansing excess sebum and impurities but is too drying for dry, mature, sensitive and dehydrated skin types.
Head to the Online Skin Analysis section of the website to determine your skin type, find advise on the type of product you should be using and links to the correct brands and products for your skin. Alternatively check out the skincarelove.com Product Chart and find the product that perfectly matches your skin type.

Why is there so much conflicting information about Organic skin care?
There is no doubt about the benefits of organic skin care - skin absorbs less chemicals because the ingredients are natural and organically farmed. There are no hidden nasties hidden in the products. However, there is a number of certifying bodies throughout the world each with their own standards of regulation. This results in a lack of synergy between the bodies with regards to what ingredients or the quantity contained within a certified organic product. For example on product may allow water to be classified as an organic ingredient, which could result in a mainly water based product being certified orgnaic even if the rest of the ingreidients are not. Alterntaively one certification body may require a minimum of 75% orgnaic ingredients while another may only require 10%. Thus the consumer who buys the 10% organic ingredients product may be using more chemicals on thier skin than the consumer who buys the 75% certified organic product. On top of that many big name skin care companies are using the terms 'organic' and 'natural', while big name makeup companies are branding their makeup 'mineral'.
The best rule to stick to when buying organic is to only buy certified products. Although they all have individual and differing regulations you can be assured there are standards that the products must adhere to. SkinCareLove.com has the strictest of standards when it comes to selecting products so you can rest assured the products will only ever care for your skin.
Why do some products say they are organic when they are not?
Consumers are settling for nothing less than the best for their skin and family. They want toxic free products that are not going to harm, sensitize or age the skin. Companies with big budgets are picking up on this demand and falsely labeling their products to dupe consumers in to believing they are getting organic products. This is simple yet effective marketing hype to increase their sales. As we said above if yuo are looking to buy organic stick to the certified products. That was you can be safe in the knowledge that your skin care is completely chemical free.
What are Parabens and why are they bad?
Parabens are sed in a huge percentage of everyday products such as toothpaste, shampoo, moisturisers and body washes. Parabens mimic the hormone Estrogen so have a serious negative affect on the reproductive system. One study found that exposure to a particular paraben have adverse reactions to the secretion of testosterone and the function of the male reproductive system in newborn male mammals. If that is not enough it is also linked to cancer.
If talc is so bad for you then why is it in so many skin products?
Talc is used in a variety of products such as baby powder, makeup and deodrant. For 30 years scientists have scrutinised talc particles and found dangerous similarities to asbestos (A natural material made up of tiny fibers which can lodge in the lungs and lead to cancer. The EPA has banned or severely restricted its use in manufacturing and construction). Talc particles have been shown to cause tumours in ovaries and have been present in the lungs of cancer victims.
Talc is still used in products as because the oleophilic (oil-loving, hydrophobic) nature of the mineral helps to absorb natural oils, the slippery nature presents a pleasant feel and most importantly it is cheap and readily affordable.
