Natural Skin Care by Venus Naturals
enus creams and lotions are safer than most skin and body care products on the market today. There are absolutely no parabens, sulfates, artificial parfums, dyes or other chemical additives that can cause allergic reactions or have long-term negative side effects and safer for animals too since our creams do not contain animal by-products and are not tested on animals!
Venus Cleansers have a deep, gentle cleansing action that draw out all traces of surface debris, makeup and impurities from the skins pores leaving the skin radiantly clean, silky and soft. All of our products are made only with natural preservatives and emulsifiers.
Fresheners and Toners are important because they rinse away traces of oils and fats (residue from the cleanser). They help to close and refine the pores, stimulate circulation and refine texture. Venus Toners are made with pure hydrosols (steam-distilled floral and herbal waters) and the highest grade essential oils. No plain water is used. No alcohol is used. (atomizer sprayer is included)
Venus Moisturizers start with a cream base made especially for your skin type. Essential oils (flower and herb extracts) are added for their therapeutic benefits.
Parabens not used
Many other creams and lotions contain synthetic preservatives such as Propylparaben, Methylparaben and Butylparaben, which are toxic but widely used in the cosmetics industry. Venus creams and lotions contain only natural preservatives that are used by aromatherapists.
There is a growing concern about the use of parabens in cosmetics in relation to the increased risk of breast cancer. For more information on the dangers of parabens, search the net with the keywords dangers of parabens.
Many creams contain parabens, even though they claim to be natural.
Phenoxyethanol & Ethylhexylglycerin not used
Many companies have switched from using parabens as preservatives to these alternatives: phenoxyethanol and ethylhexylglycerin. These ingredients are increasingly turning up in cosmetics as alternatives to parabens. However, phenoxyethanol only recently came to public attention in the US when the FDA issued a warning about its use in a cream, called Mommy Bliss, for nursing mothers. The FDA warned that phenoxyethanol can cause shut down of the central nervous system, vomiting and contact dermatitis.

Many companies selling their own brands do not publish all ingredients, only selected ones, so you do not even know what you are getting!
For your safety, Venus Naturals discloses all ingredients used in our products.
