NO GREEN CHEMISTRY
It is common, even in certified organic skincare, to use ingredients that have been chemically modified. They are sometimes referred to “green chemistry”. Hydrogenated fats and trans fats are an example of such chemical modifications.
In nutrition we know that the consumption of these fats (vegetable shortening, margarine, etc.) is linked to inflammation and heart disease. When applied on the skin, these fats stay on the skin surface, as the skin can not recognise and absorb them.
