Scary Ingredients in Face Wash: Acne & Rosacea

So I just realized how big my post was for Proactiv. I've had over 200 views of it, my most popular post I have. That's crazy! I'm still trying to figure out how to draw you readers in. Blogging isn't my forte, but I'd love to make this blog something worthwhile for you guys to enjoy.

I'm still baffled at this moment.

But I'm digressing. I'd like to talk further on my rosacea problems. I developed rosacea about 5 years ago when I was 14. It happened suddenly after I used Proactiv, which I deem as the number one culprit for my rosacea acne. Before I used it, my acne was not as bad as my mind made it out to be. Only a few pimples here and there.

I know my stress didn't help, and neither did lathering up on commercial face washes since I was 12-years-old.

Why are commercial face washes bad for your skin?

Go to your bathroom, pick up your favorite face wash, like Neutrogena or whatever it is. Now go to the ingredients. What do you see? Can you pronounce half of those ingredients? Do you even know what they are?

If you don't know what it is, then why are you using it? Because everyone else does? Well, don't be stupid like the rest of society.

Here are some reasons why you should never use something unless you understand what it's made of:

1st of all, there are some scary ingredients in face wash: Water, Cetyl Alcohol, PPG 15 Stearyl Ether, Glycolic Acid, Steareth 21, Glycerin, Polysorbate 60, C12 15 Alkyl Lactate, Cetyl Lactate, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Cocamidopropyl PG Dimonium Chloride Phosphate, Xanthan Gum, Disodium EDTA, Menthol, Panthenol, Sodium Benzotriazolyl Butylphenol Sulfonate, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Fruit Peel Extract (Grapefruit), Benzalkonium Chloride, Sodium Hydroxide, Yellow 6, Red 40, Fragrance 

This list was pulled from Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Cream Cleanser.

Now come one, what do you know that's in there besides water? Like what the hell is PPG 15 Stearyl Ether?

Well, let's find out with some googling.

"PPG 11 Stearyl Ether is considered a low hazard ingredient by the Cosmetics Database, which only notes ecotoxicology hazards and data gaps as concerns. It is not easily absorbed by the skin, and is although PPG butyl ethers, one of its components, are a concern, they are easily processed by the metabolism and eliminated as waste in the urine ("

Oh really now, it's considered low hazard? Take out the low, and it's still hazardous. Now why would you want to put something like that on your skin? What makes you think it'll help clean up your acne if it's hazardous, even if to a small degree? Why the hell is it even there?

This is why you can't trust skin care companies. They'll feed you products that are toxinous, which actually cause pimples. Sorry to let you know that, but it's true.

Alrighty, let me give you a picture right here. Imagine those toxins, which PPG whatever isn't the only one in there. Imagine all of those little toxins floating in your system. Now imagine eating more toxins from commercial food, it's in there too, just look up those pesky ingredients. Your lymphatic system is the fluid system running like a stream in your body. It picks up all those toxins and transfers them to your liver. But guess what, your liver is backed up by toxins already. All of this processed food we eats, feeds up toxins, and because the food is processed at such high temperatures with toxinous ingredients, the food is deemed as dead. And if the food is deemed as dead and toxinous, there's no way for your liver to get rid of it because it's not getting the proper nutrition. 

And since there are more and more toxins being fed to your body every single day, they just keep circulating in your lymphatic system, so your body panics and tries to get rid of it...through your skin. Which is why you get pimples.

Scary eh?

So how do you get rid of the toxins? By proper nutrition.

My next post will be more on toxins, and I'll have a post about Bentonite Clay too.


  1. Excellent post, i never use any of these products except for my tooth-paste, i choose one without fluor if possible

    1. Thanks for commenting!

      I don't even use toothpaste anymore! I just brush my teeth with some oil of oregano since its way better at killing off bacteria.

  2. Many modern men use a face wash for men. After all, keeping the face bright makes you presentable. Washing faces is the best way for this. Many men wash the face with water and use soap. Use of soap for the face is not recommended because it contains ingredients that can damage the skin.

  3. There's SHOCKING news in the sports betting industry.

    It's been said that every bettor must watch this,

    Watch this or stop betting on sports...

Rosacea & Acne: Coconut Oil

So I'm continuing onward with my Rosacea & Acne posts. I see that these are what bring in the most views.

Now this is going to sound weird. In order to moisturize your skin, you need to use a natural oil.

And of course, you're thinking "But that'll make my skin oily!"

Well, yes, of course it does at first. But think about this for a moment. Your skin produces oils. When you use your harsh cleaners on your face, you strip all the oils off your skin. Which is totally not good for you. So what better way can you balance the oils on your skin? By replacing the oils with a natural oil: coconut oil, to be exact.

When I first started learning about natural remedies, I became intrigued by what I found. For I was determined to heal my scarring rosacea. My face was beat red, and I was embarrassed by it.

So I dropped all commercial products, picked up coconut oil and clay, and I was deteremined to win.

First of all, my skin gets super dry in the winter. So dry that when I put…

My Experience in Healing Rosacea & Acne: Bentonite Clay

So I've never really discussed my regime I use for my face, or actually what I used to use on my face. Am I confusing you already? Good. Because now you shall read on.

Most of you already know I have rosacea. It was very bad to begin with. There's a photo on one of my posts showing the pure redness across my nose and chin. Along with that, I had so many pimples and lots of cystic acne.

Now what do I think caused it? My overabuse of my skin using commercial products. My last post I tried to explain why these face washes are terrible for our skin. I mean, who wants to slatherPPG 15 Stearyl Ether all over their face? They use it in face wash, so why not? Would you still put it on your face, considering its a toxin? I sure as hell wouldn't. So what makes you think that face wash is safe.

Oh yeah, cause the big ole' FDA claims so. Well, guess what? The FDA doesn't give two f*cks about your acne. They need you to develop that acne in order to make them money through the Pha…

My Experience With Proactiv: Rosacea & Acne

Do those Proactiv comercials tempt you? Have you considered more than once on trying it? Are you on the borderline of giving into that temptation?

Well, please STOP, and read my story first.

I've used Proactiv, I have experience with the product, and I want to share my story with you guys. But I must backtrack almost 4 years ago to when I actually used it.

Actually, I'm going to backtrack a little farther back than that...

Well, here it goes:

When I was twelve-years-old, I had the most perfect, flawless skin a girl would die for, literally. I rarely had to use makeup because my skin was seriously that perfect. And it stayed that way for a good long time. I was selfish back then, not realizing how damn lucky I was. I can't imagine how many girls envied me.

But then, I got sucked into the world of society and started to feel the need to wear makeup, constantly. That was my first mistake. After I began wearing makeup as a need to feel "pretty," I started to develop a…
