    Default The Dark Side of Corn Huskers Lotion

    I just dumped my Corn Huskers Lotion in the trash.
    There is nothing organic about Corn Huskers. The biggest danger is the the large amount of methylparaban. It is the substance that made a fortune for Estee Lauder by making preservative free cosmetics. Cheap cosmetics have large amounts of it also and are responsible for the rosy cheeks that develop after you are sensitized to it. Skin is great for making you allergic to substances in life.
    Another problem is that once you are allergic to it, you will develop a cross reaction to paba and benzoic acid structures. Multi-dose vials of medications contain this as a preservative and people that list multiple allergies are not actully allergic to the medication but to the preservative.

    Here are the ingrediaents
    Water, Glycerin, (Moisturizer) SD Alcohol 40, (Solvent) basically vodka

    Sodium Calcium Alginate, viscous gum that is abundant in the cell walls of brown algae. It ranges from white to yellowish-brown, and takes filamentous, granular and powdered forms used for thickening

    Oleyl fatty alcohol coming from inedible beef fat thickener

    Sarcosin, crystalline nitrogenous substance, formed in the decomposition of creatin

    Methylparaben, synthetic preservatives are used in 99% of the skin and hair products made today. Highly toxic and cause allergic/skin reactions. Recent medical studies indicate these chemicals are estrogenic. This means they mimic estrogen in the body with butylparaban being the most potent

    Guar Gum, another thickening agent

    Triethanolamine, pH balancer in cosmetic preparations in a variety of different products

    Calcium Sulfate, Fragrance, Calcium Chloride,
    Fumaric Acid, Boric Acid, pH adjustment

    Too much bacon yes.
    Nitrosamines are carcinogenic, have been known to destroy pancreatic cells, and teh salt is bad for your blood pressure.

    SKin has a great talent in sensitizing your body to chemicals. Those red rosy cheeks also get scaly and dry.

    I'm confused. Did someone claim CHL was organic?

    I don't use it because it doesn't have Phenylalanine, and the dose of BPA is far too small.
    Is this your homework, Larry?

    Organic Chemist (not a pharmacist for you cousins in GB)
    Not really trying to impress anyone, just expressing concerns and trying to explain things accurately yet simply. As you noted in my signature I never take anything in life halfway.
    Use Corn Huskers long enough and you will get nice rosy cheeks on an ongoing basis.

    Remember Estee lauder took the preservative out and her Estee Lauder and Clinique lines are products women and men drop big bucks for because they are easy on the skin.

    I am sure it works but long term will be rough on your face.
    This product was originally made for very rough hands not faces.
    Its basically water, glycering, assorded fats, starches and preservatives.
    The thicking agents are what makes it so great, they form a barrier not letting moisture ot escape.

    Just for fun, I checked a few things in my den.

    Proraso(CO Bigelow) has 4 different parabens, and KissMyFace has one.

    If anyone is scared to continue their use, please pm me, as I will ensure their proper disposal.

    Actually I've used CHL before (for my hands) and don't think I'd care to use it on my face so this doesn't break my heart.

    You're either new to the world of chemicals or you're new to the world of cosmetics, or both.

    Your descriptions of these well known chemicals demonstrate a profound lack of awareness as to what they actually are, what they accomplish, what their purpose is, as well as a basic ignorance to the fundamentals of chemical composition and reaction. And I expect better from a fellow chemist. An organic chemist, at that.

    Technically, organic chemistry is a specialized branch of chemistry that also happens to be the most misunderstood and misused as far as explaining what your field is. I met a guy last year who thought he was an organic chemist because he used an "organic" pesticide on his apple orchard. I kid you not. "Biochemistry" was the last flavor-of-the-month "hype" word that everyone used when trying to sound educated.

    Oh, and believe it or not, organic chemistry involves the study of non-living things as well. You can't have a life process without inorganic compounds.
