Originally, I planed
to record the seventh episode of the book “Detox Your Skin; Only
Water for 14 Days.” after coming back. But now I just have time, so
I record it for you.
We finished in the
sixth episode before, we said, I mean: we think all the maintenance
products, the first one we don't actually have very long human
(test) data on the single raw material. This is the
One more, and then,
for mixed ingredients, we even don't have the safety data for these
So I think it's time
to take advantage of the history of Pharmacology; that is, with
“the constant monitoring of physicians.”
But when physicians
monitor it with the naked eye; it is "difficult" to do it (memory
only is inaccurate). So we magnify it, so that we can see the
change of the texture with a very clearly records.
That's what I
probably told you before.
Well, today, the
seventh, the story I actually want to tell you is very simple, that
is, we begin to say, "If you want to know about maintenance, not
just watch ingredients."
About twenty years
ago, after the DIY epidemic, people began to think, "How do we
understand the skincare products?"
The ingredient list
is, of course, a source of "honesty" for a manufacturer, and it
should be so.
But what you don't
know is that there are actually a lot of eyebrow angles in the
ingredient list, also named the trick.
I don't object to
you to read the ingredient list, and I also support the
manufacturer to use the ingredient list. But have you ever thought
that there are some traps in the ingredient list?
That is to say, the
component table indicates the "complete" problem of the skincare
Let me talk to you
first. We still use the story of Emperor of Tang Dynasty (Tang
唐太宗) we first
That's the beef
noodle I seal and another one also seal it; both brands of the beef
noodles label the ingredients— "salt, sugar, pepper, pepper oil,
OK, the two the two
are marked "exactly the same." Can you tell me the level of the two
brand is the same?
First of all, the
number of beef is not the same. But there is “no proportion” in the
You can read it
carefully. The ingredients list hardly shows any percentage,
without any proportion.
Of course, there are
some ingredients, such as vitamin C 3%. Then can you tell me, in
addition to vitamin C, What percentage of its preservative? What
percentage of its spice? What percentage of the others?
They are not written
in the composition table. If you remember, the ingredient list, you
can't see the percentage. Please take a closer look at your
Secondly, OK, that's
to say, we continue to use the example of beef noodles. My beef
with his beef, probably one is made in Australia, one is made in
the United States; one is chuck, another one is leg shuttlecock
meat; one may be minced meat, one may be a flesh; even one may be
the pollution of rotten meat and another one is a good
But you don't know
anything! He only writes beef!
Now, please tell me
the rose extract you see on your skincare product. This one
Can you tell me, in
this rose extract, is the Brand A the same as the Brand B or the
That is to say, when
there is a discussion, consumers tend to make a mistake: when we
discuss L-VC (Laevogyrate vitamin C), when this one has 3% of L-VC,
that one has 4% of L-VC. Then we will say that one is more
First of all, are
they the same L-VC?
Second. Do they come
from the same raw material supplier? If not, do they have the same
There's a lot of
space to talk about. In the next episode, the episode—"If want to
understand the skin care products, do not just look at the
composition table." we're going to keep it clearer
There’s a minute or
two left, and I want to talk to you about another
Let's talk about the
acid, because the concept of “acid safety” actually relates to
“truth of the ingredient list”.
For example, we
often say, "this person uses 15% of the acid," and "that person
uses 15% of the acid."...... Ordinary people think of "15% acid", I
But, if you know,
"acid actually will destroy skin keratin and makes it easier for
the latter substances to seep in. " Then you can understand the
"15% of the acid plus 85% pesticide ", and with" 30% of the acid
plus 70% pesticide ", which one is more dangerous?
In fact, 85% of
pesticides are more dangerous than 70% of pesticides!
I don't mean to
denigrate this kind of industry by taking this extreme
I'm just going to
tell you that when you're using something, you often see L-VC 3%,
L-VC 5%, L-VC 8%, and now please tell me, "do you really think" the
3% of L-VC is more important? Or is the remaining 97% easier to
The book "Detox Your
Skin; Only Water for 14 Days" tells you, "actually, we don't know
And there's a very
clear point to tell you: as you move on, you'll find that the
maintenance vendor doesn't know! "
The only thing we
can know is that we're constantly monitoring it, just like we were
And there's a very clear point to tell you: as you move on, you'll
find that the manufactures of the skin product doesn't know either!
The only thing we
can know is that we're constantly monitoring it, just like helping
our manufacturers monitor aspirin. We know that aspirin can also
cause stomach pain except for pain relieve, additionally it can be
used to prevent thrombosis too thick......
This is the concept
that the medical profession should adapt to the skin care
profession constantly monitors the skin care products, which is the
essence of the whole book.
So let's finish it
here today, thank you. Namo Amitabha.
