  1. You could go on and on and on, but it will only be from a biased and uniformed point of view. Your refusal to even read any of those studies ON SKIN CONTACT clearly shows that you only care about trying to prove Green Cream ingredients are safe and NOT to inform people that MANY studies show they are toxic to the SKIN, and not just when taken internally. Also, the colored dye used in this product is toxic as well, but I know you don't care about that because you love the product. Some peopl
  2. This is my last post on this subject because it is clear to me that your only intent is to make sure no one says anything bad about your favorite product. This paragraph is from Paula Begoun (and you can also get this info from the FDA): inactive ingredient. The list of inactive ingredients is the part of an ingredient label that is not regulated by the FDA other than the requirement that it be a complete list of the contents in descending order of concentration; that is, the ingredient with
  3. Telling everyone about toxic ingredients in products is a very good thing! It's not just Green Cream, but many many other products as well. You can keep your head in the sand as long as you want, and I'm sorry if the truth hurts. If you scroll down that web site to near the bottom you can read all about the studies done on skin contact, but I know now that your only interest is making sure no one says anything bad about your favorite product. You are only gonna believe what you want to bel
  4. I guess you did not really read that page. Scroll down and you can see all of the studies on skin contact. www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/ingredient.php?ingred06=702285 You can say all you want about your favorite product, but the facts are the facts, no matter what their corporate sale manager tells you - it's a very toxic product and prolonged use will cause damage. Try reading a US Government MSDS if you want more -. May cause central nervous system depression. Causes severe eye irrita

  6. I have used both Green Cream and Retin-A before using the GoW product. My dermatologist has told me the key to any retinoid is to use it long term to gain maximum benefits. So, if you are going to use a product long term then you want ingredients that are NOT toxic for your skin. My doctor is not the only one who says its harmful to use a product that is more than 50% Ethanol (along with toxic colored dyes). I'm glad it's working for you now, but unfortunately it may end up causing your s
  7. I found a product that works better than Green Cream and is much safer for your skin long term! My dermatologist told me that if you use Green Cream long term (for several years) it will destroy your skin because of the toxic ingredients. I now use Garden of Wisdom Vita ReSurface Cream. Here is the complete ingredient list: Rose Geranium Hydrosol; Rice Bran Oil CP/Unrefined; Sodium PCA; Polawax NF; Glycercin; All-Trans Retinol; Galactobarian; Optiphen They offer this in either .5% or 1% re
  8. I also use GoW Mandelic Acid Serum, but the 15% yes alcohol/no seaweed version (in the AM) and jojoba oil (in the PM). I have sensitive skin also, and have tried about a million cleansers. I have reactions to any SLS type of ingredient (sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate) and have had problems with a lot of cleansers, cause most of them use SLS. I have been using Bioelements Flash Foam Cleanser for about 6 months now and its REALLY GREAT! It's a little expensive, but worth it to me. You should t
  9. I just recently tried both the Vivant and Garden of Wisdom Mandelic Acid serums, and in my opinion (and others) you should NOT use the Vivant because SD Alcohol 40 and Propylene Glycol are the MAIN INGREDIENTS. They are both toxic ingredients for your skin and Paula Begoun recommends only using these ingredients in very small amounts (listed at the bottom of the ingredients list - not at the top). Well, if you decide that you want to at least try the Vivant (as I did) then you can order it bra
