Elements that affect air pollution: volatile organic compounds VOC - Bonne News

A solution to air pollution? Use certified cosmetics

Currently, air pollution is on the rise, and it affects our health at various levels.

When applied at the production stage and in the final product, it can cause air pollution in two different ways. To avoid contamination, choose cosmetics with a ‘zero waste’ eco label.

 

Effect on Air Pollution in Cosmetic Manufacturing

Cosmetic manufacturing emits significant amounts of CO2. CO2 from the process of extracting, transporting, and refining petroleum before using it as a cosmetic ingredient mainly pollutes the air.

 

Effect of ingredients in finished products on air pollution

In 2018, the University of Colorado Boulder investigated the environmental impact of evaporation of some cosmetic ingredients. Their research shows that VOCs (volatile organic compounds), such as siloxanes, also known as decamethylcyclopentasiloxane, evaporate very easily from the skin or hair. It then disperses in the air to form ozone. Polluted air affects people's health, accelerates aging, reduces moisture, and increases sebum production. These factors mean that the skin is weakened and prone to acne. It is important to note that this article only refers to air pollution, not land or water pollution. Water contamination from cosmetics can result from residues from wash-off cosmetics, such as soap, shampoo and toothpaste. The lack of biodegradability has devastating consequences for aquatic animals and plants.

 

Zero waste eco label

Certified cosmetics should emit a minimum of CO2 during the manufacturing process. The zero waste eco-label ensures that certified cosmetics use the minimum amount of energy and resources until manufacturing, using raw materials produced from local suppliers as much as possible. In addition, the use of VOC (volatile organic compounds) ingredients is prohibited. Therefore, the zero waste eco-label does not pollute the air by evaporation of certified cosmetics.
