Playing Are Clean Beauty Products Better for Your Skin?

Is a beauty product that is organic or "clean" really better for your skin? The Doctors welcome dermatologist Dr. Monika Kiripolsky to weigh in!

She explains "clean beauty" means the products contain a minimal amount of ingredients and no preservatives and will likely be safe for even the most sensitive skin types.

Despite the possible benefits of "clean" products, Dr. Kiripolsky warns this is a self-regulating industry, and these product claims are not verified by the FDA. She suggests consumers look for products that independently lab test their claims and also notes a beauty product can be called "organic" and it might not be truly "certified-organic."

She also notes not all chemicals and preservatives are always bad for the skin, and some can be very beneficial.

When buying products, she suggests looking for items that are labeled safe for "6 to 12 months," and also buy items that have air-less pumps and airless tubes, to help cut down on bacteria growth. She also adds, "Not all CBD skincare products are considered clean," noting this will depend on how the plants are grown and how the CBD is isolated from the hemp plant. 

The Doctors and Dr. Kiripolsky remind viewers to check with their dermatologist before using a new product if they have concerns.
