Why the “Fuss” About Product Ingredients?

Why the “Fuss” About Product Ingredien...


By Dr. Loretta Lanphier, ND, CN, HHP

Due to conflicting and compromised definitions of the word “natural,” many products that call themselves “natural” actually contain synthetic chemicals and excipients. Nowhere is this more common than in personal care products, such as creams, deodorants, lotions, shampoos, cosmetics, etc.

While a very few of the chemicals in these products are somewhat benign, most have been linked to ill health and hormone disruption and all contribute to environmental degradation. However, no chemical is really benign when we consider that the average person uses between 6 and 13 personal care products EVERY day—toxic build-up becomes a very real health concern. Because of this, we suggest that you avoid all products that contain carbomers, triethanolamine, quarterniums, stearalkonium chloride, DEA, imidazolidinyl urea, methyl, propyl or butyl parabens, propylene or butylene glycols, phenoxyethanol, polyethylene glycol (PEG), alcohols, ethoxydiglycol, etc. (Reminder: “Gels” may contain triethanolamine.) For more information and education, please read my e-book Chemical Soup—Your Health Under Siege which discusses toxic ingredients and excipients, at length.

In short, when selecting your personal care products (including your natural progesterone cream), make sure that the entire cream, and not just the main ingredients, is natural. Stay away from ingredients with which neither you nor your healthcare provider are familiar with, especially if neither of you can pronounce them. Do your research since many manufacturers are now disguising synthetic and toxic chemicals with seemingly natural sounding names. If necessary, call the manufacturer for information on an ingredient.

While many manufacturers say it is impossible to make cream and lotions without synthetic chemicals, this is not the case. It is difficult to find labs that have retained the art of making truly natural personal care products, for most of their chemists are young, and have learned their trade in the chemical age. Also most chemical ingredients and excipients are just “assumed” to be safe and have never been tested by governmental agencies as to their effect on humans. The “all manufacturers use this ingredient and accept it as safe” should not be an acceptable answer to your questions. And add to this the fact that using synthetic chemicals is much cheaper than using all-natural ingredients and excipients. But, formulators who insist on purity do exist, and supporting them furthers both our own personal health and well-being, and the purity of the environment.

With Oasis Serene, you’re getting the absolute finest natural progesterone cream available anywhere, and a product that supports, rather than violates, environmental integrity and optimum health and well-being.

Oasis Serene IS THE PUREST

cleanest, most complete and most effective natural progesterone cream ever offered. It contains the precise amount of natural progesterone suggested by Dr. John Lee. Oasis Serene is produced in extremely small batches and therefore, does not sit in a warehouse for months before being sold, ensuring complete freshness. To the best of our knowledge, it is also the only completely chemical free product in its category in which each batch is lab tested to make sure that Oasis Serene provides the amount of progesterone that is stated on the label.

In the final analysis, however, the worth of Oasis Serene must be judged not by Oasis Advanced Wellness, but by you, the customer. And, because of this, it is guaranteed to your complete satisfaction. This means that you may try it, entirely at our risk, and, if you are anything less than delighted with your results, return it, at any time within 60 days, for a refund of your entire purchase price less shipping costs.

Thus, we invite you to join the Oasis Serene family, and hope you will also entrust Oasis Advanced Wellness with your other nutritional and health/wellness needs. We promise to spare neither time nor expense to provide the most beneficial and most researched products possible, to offer them at fair prices, and to do all in our power to forever merit your trust.

OAW formulated products are 100% toxic-free. Our products will never contain questionable or potentially harmful ingredients / excipients such as magnesium stearate (a toxic, hydrogenated oil that suppresses the immune system), silicon dioxide (common sand), methyl or propylparaben, methylcellulose, carnauba wax, palmitates, FD&C food colors (recently banned by the FDA), “natural flavors” (which is just a fancy name for MSG, a known neurotoxic), polyethylene glycol, acetate, titanium dioxide and other toxic excipients and potentially harmful manufacturing additives. We guarantee our cutting edge formulations are free of toxic tag-along herbicides, insecticides, pesticides, heavy metals, fumigants, etc. OAW product ingredients are certified organic, wild crafted or of the highest purity and quality that we can obtain while still providing the utmost degree of active ingredients. All batches are laboratory tested to ensure that you are getting exactly what the label states. We will never knowingly compromise health in order to provide a cheaper product or to get a product out quickly. You can be assured that, at OAW, Your Optimum Health & Well-Being Is Our #1 Priority.

Reminder: We do not advise using Oasis Serene on body locations that alpha-hydroxy acids have been used within the last 24 hours. Some data indicate such exfoliating acids may interfere with progesterone absorption. Also make sure that the application area is clean and free from powder, lotions and perfumes.
