A letter from Dr. Fields
I have been asked many times to explain why I developed Dr. Fields’ Sacred Skin and why my products are better than others on the market.
It’s simple. The toxic ingredients in most hair and skincare products are making us sick. My skin care products include only non-toxic, natural ingredients that restore and nourish the skin naturally.
The risks of using most commercial cosmetics
Many commercial cosmetics include chemicals such as parabens that disrupt the delicate balance of human hormones, contributing to breast cancer, prostate cancer and infertility. Others are known carcinogens. Formaldehyde, for example, is a preservative ingredient often hidden in “fragrance” or “parfum.”
Is a little bit of “toxic” OK?
Some people argue that exposure to low amounts of these ingredients in an individual product poses no serious health risks. But consider this, the average American woman uses twelve personal care and cosmetic products each day. Choose the wrong products and that’s twelve doses of toxic ingredients, not just one.
And these chemicals don’t magically evaporate after application to the skin. As much as 70% of what we apply to our skin is absorbed into the bloodstream and must be processed by the body.
The reasons many cosmetics companies use toxic chemicals
Many of these harmful preservatives, dyes, and chemicals in commercial cosmetics have no value in the beautiﬁcation of the skin. Others enhance the texture, elegance, or appearance of the product. Yet there are safer alternatives to these toxic ingredients. So why do cosmetics companies use them?
Costs and shelf life. Hormone-disrupting parabens enable a product shelf life of up to eight years. Using essential oils as antimicrobial preservatives, while effective, is expensive and only extends product shelf life to two years.
Developing safe skin care products that you can trust
Having done my research, I began developing a line of products that I would be willing to use on my own skin, on my children’s skin. I developed skincare products that as a physician I can in conscience recommend as safe and healthy for my patients, friends and family.
Choosing safe, natural ingredients
In Dr. Fields’ Sacred Skin products we use essential oils as antimicrobial preservatives. So because we use the finest natural ingredients, note that these products, like natural foods, should always be fresh and must be used within 2 years.
Each high-potency ingredient has its purpose
Our products include no unnecessary ingredients–every ingredient serves a vital purpose in nourishing and restoring the skin naturally. And additionally, in Dr. Fields’ Sacred Skin products we use the exact isomer or the “chirally” correct form of a nutrient which is more efﬁciently utilized by the skin.
The right choice for your skin
Dr. Fields’ Sacred Skin products offer you elegant, healthy, natural skin care, developed based on the harmony of Ayurvedic principles. My skin care products are the least toxic skin nutrients available on the market at a reasonable price.
My Safe Cosmetics Campaign pledge to to you
My products are registered with the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and I have take the Safe Cosmetics Pledge not to utilize known carcinogens and toxic chemicals.
Furthermore, I am committed to educating about safe cosmetics, and ensuring sustainability for ourselves and the planet we share.
I wish you radiance, health, and beauty from the inside out.
