Haute Custom Beauty Is 100% PEGs Free

PEGs are petroleum-based compounds often used as emollients and emulsifiers. Some studies say these polymer derivatives are linked to cancer, reproduction and fertility, birth or developmental defects and that they could be toxic to organs. Other sources say PEGs can reduce skin’s moisture levels and accelerate aging. Depending on manufacturing process, PEGs may be contaminated with measurable amounts of ethylene oxide (the International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies this as a known human carcinogen) and 1,4-dioxane (a possible human carcinogen.)
