Skin care information is everywhere these days, but why does it seem near impossible to find reliable sources that give it to you straight? It may be confusing to find out what is really happening in the skin care industry, but if you look around in the right places it is not impossible to get the real scoop on ingredients and products without manufacturer propaganda and lies.
Let’s face it, it is in the manufacturer’s best interest to downplay the harsh side effects of some ingredients and over-exaggerate the benefits of others. They want you to purchase their product so they have to keep the cost of manufacturing as low as possible. In their minds, that means sacrificing some beneficial ingredients and using some harmful ones.
In order to keep you from knowing this, they set up websites which only give part of the story. They tell you want they want you to hear, not what you really need to know. That’s unfortunate, but there are other places to turn.
You can get reliable skin care information from websites which are not affiliated with any specific manufacturer or skincare product. Look for websites which are aimed at exposing the truth of the industry and those that are concerned with health in general. You will find some highly useful skin care information on these sites.
Skin care info is actually not very hard to come by if you have internet access. You can go to well known sites like WebMD for starters, but the real valuable skin care information is going to come from industry related sites that want to spread the word on harmful ingredients for your safety. Most of these sites have no agenda other than informing consumers of what they may be putting on their face.
That is not to say that you cannot get some very valuable information from the websites for some of the top skincare manufacturers. While some will obviously be giving you the sales ad for each of their products and not much more, some do go into great detail on each of their ingredients and even state their skincare beliefs and policy. These companies tend to be the most natural, pure manufacturers on the market. That is why they are so willing to openly give you the industry scoop. It is what makes them stand apart from all the rest!
