     In recent years, in the WeChat circle of friends, online shop often see some personal studios called "handmade pure natural", "natural", "no added" skin care products, from masks, essential oils to lipstick, handmade Saponins are available. Open a search engine of a treasure, enter the "home-made skin care" search, from facial cleanser, toner, moisturizing cream, to whitening mask and acne oil control gel, almost everything. At the same time, the raw materials and tools of various DIY skin care products are also selling well.

     These hand-made natural skin care products are really qualified for our completely zero risk and health indicators?

     People seem to have an illusion that the natural craftsmanship must be better than the mechanized assembly line. In particular, some skincare products that promote big names are actually very cheap, because the addition of large brand promotion fees and taxes makes them expensive. Many people who are interested in promoting homemade skin care products are not only natural and harmless, but also have many additional promotional costs and taxes, which are cheap and feel very affordable.

     Xiaoyuan is a college student. In the school, the old roommates said that the handmade skin care products are good, so they began to pay attention to these handmade skin care products, and watched a shop under the banner of “natural aromatherapy, handmade skin care” on the Internet. Check out the buyer's evaluation of this store is very good, and the owner also consulted to find out which product she is suitable for, the owner seriously understands her skin condition before recommending several products to her, and said this Several models of star products of a certain brand are exactly the same formula. The bottle of toner of that big brand needs more than two hundred yuan, and only tens of yuan in this online shop. When Xiaoyuan got the skin care products sent by the seller, I saw that the packaging was beautiful, and there were some fresh petals inside. It looked really natural and I started using it immediately. However, after a short period of use, it began to find that the water quality became cloudy and the petals began to be corrupt. This situation made Xiaoyuan afraid, and soon stopped using it. Ask the owner to get the answer because the shelf life of the handmade skin care products that are naturally free of preservatives is relatively short, and this is normal. Xiaoyuan found the chemistry professor at the school to understand. The professor said that the brand's skin care products were rigorously tested. The addition of such petals was done under complete sterile disinfection. These petals must have passed through. Some pretreatment can be put into skin care products. However, the hygiene of these hand workshops does not meet strict standards. If fresh petals are added directly, the microbes attached to them will definitely lead to rapid product spoilage. The professor also told her that any edible materials and fresh plants, such as milk, honey and some petal leaves, if not subjected to strict disinfection pretreatment, as long as they are added to the skin care products, will cause a large number of bacterial microbes to reproduce. It is almost the same as the product is disfigured.

     Cosmetics that do not contain preservatives must avoid secondary air pollution and require disposable packaging such as injections, capsules, or hoses that do not produce air backflow. The purpose of preservatives in cosmetics is to protect the product from microbial contamination, extend the shelf life and longevity of the product, and prevent consumers from infecting potentially contaminated products. Because the oils, gums, polyols, proteins and moisture contained in cosmetics create very good conditions for the growth of microorganisms, it is possible to make cosmetics in the manufacturing process, the packaging process, the packaging itself and the cosmetics used by consumers. Microbial contamination.

     For the majority of consumers, the most important condition for the use of preservatives is that they are not toxic to the human body. However, improper use of preservatives can lead to cosmetic allergic dermatitis. In addition to spices, preservatives are the second most common cause of skin irritation and skin irritation. It should be noted that preservatives are added to cosmetics. Not everyone will be allergic to them, but need to achieve a certain amount and intensity. .

     In these all-natural products, the reporter found that many of the product packaging did not have any logo or text description. Some reporters took masks, lipsticks and lipsticks to the Beijing Institute of Drug Control for scientific research on the samples. Detection of glucocorticoids, heavy metals and microbial limits (including total number of colonies, fecal coliforms, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, molds and yeasts). According to experts, glucocorticoids, heavy metals and microorganisms are safety risk substances that are the focus of attention in cosmetic safety evaluation. Adding glucocorticoids to cosmetics can play a role in skin rejuvenation and whitening in a short period of time. However, long-term use of cosmetics containing glucocorticoids may cause problems such as dark spots on the face, shrinkage and thinning, and hormone-dependent dermatitis. In the production process of cosmetic raw materials and cosmetics, it is easy to bring in heavy metal pollution. It generally does not cause acute poisoning. It only accumulates in the human body and causes heavy metals to accumulate in the body, causing chronic poisoning, which causes nervous, digestive, endocrine and other systems. damage. Glucocorticoids and heavy metals are strictly prohibited for use in cosmetic production.

     The final results showed that none of the 39 cosmetic samples submitted for heavy metal and 41 glucocorticoids were found to be unqualified.

     Many online store owners are using people's pursuit of "pure natural" psychology, selling unqualified products that have not been approved and certified online, and there are many adverse reactions after consumers use them. Wang Xuemin, chief physician of Shanghai Dermatology Hospital, said: "Cosmetic is jointly developed by multidisciplinary professionals. The makers of handmade cosmetics are non-professionals. The products have not undergone clinical trials and are not stable. They must be purchased with caution."

     According to the reporter's access to the information, the Ministry of Health issued the "Regulations on Cosmetic Hygiene Supervision" promulgated in 2005 that the cosmetics business units and individuals are not allowed to sell cosmetics produced by enterprises that have not obtained the "Hygiene License for Cosmetics Manufacturers".

     Earlier, the relevant person in charge of the State Food and Drug Administration said in an interview with the media that Taobao.com's sale of homemade cosmetics is a production activity, and its products should also be tested and obtained corresponding certificates. According to relevant regulations, for enterprises that have not obtained cosmetics production licenses to produce cosmetics without authorization, or produce special-purpose cosmetics that have not obtained the approval number, the food and drug supervision departments at all levels shall investigate and deal with them in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Regulations on Cosmetic Hygiene Supervision.

     The Beijing Food and Drug Administration also reminded consumers to buy cosmetics to avoid exaggerating publicity and blind consumption. Don't blindly believe in the advertising and promotion of the network and WeChat friends. When purchasing, you should carefully check the approval number or filing number of the product identification, production license number, production company, production date, expiration date and other relevant information. When a counterfeit or shoddy product or other infringement of your own rights occurs, please save the relevant evidence and call 12331 to report the complaint.
