Last Wednesday, I gave well-deserved thumbs down to that bad girl PEG. Today, I have the post office on my mind (about to drive me crazy BTW) and so I am going to share a link on nano-technology. Many companies tout their use of "nano-particles" or "specialized micro- delivery systems" to take ingredients deeper into a cell. Bullseye...right on target. This technology is also used in chemo. However, in the personal care product world, this "system" is not regulated nor are the ingredients. Many companies have wised up to the fact smart consumers will run from anything "nano" and are no longer using the nano-technology language, just the system, renamed! The risk to you could be great, especially if harmful chemicals like last weeks PEG's are used in the formulas. You will be mainlining those toxins right into your cell...bombarding them with easy access to potentially hazardous chemicals.
Here is the link; decide for yourself if a faster target is better!!http://safecosmetics.org/article.php?id=307
