Emulsifiers There are basically ingredients that are added to cosmetics for several reasons. They help to combine the oil and water components in the product. This is the only way to hold these two different liquids together. They therefore improve the texture in creams, milks and wherever the resulting consistency is so important.
And not only that. Due to their low molecular weight, these emulsifiers can penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. They therefore increase the absorption of active substances – and here you may be thinking, but that's what it's all about, but no. But increasing the permeability of the skin doesn't just mean taking the good substances we want. This means that other synthetic substances also get through the skin into the deep layers of the skin and into the body, which can cause an unsightly waist. Maybe unpopularíbené clogging and widening of pores. In addition, they are produced using toxic gases and may contain carcinogenic substances. All in all, PEGy and PPGy in cosmetics are not an ideal brand either.

They canu put excessive strain on the skin and hair, which at first look perfectly repaired and smoothed, but over time they break thanks to silicones.
