Do Whole Foods skin care products work?

Does anyone recommend buying skin care products from whole foods? I was amazed by their selection, but wasn't sure if they used efficacy as a criteria for the anti-aging skin care products. My hunch is "no".

Whole Foods definitely has some good natural skincare, but it's much too expensive for me (: I get most of my skincare from Etsy or the kitchen, but I have the Pacifica Sea Foam Face Wash from Target that I like a lot.

The truth is that there is no regulation on ANY cosmetic labeling organic or otherwise. Products found in drug stores dept. stores etc... are loaded with pore clogging garbage and irritants yet are labeled non comedogenic, dermatologist tested and hypoallergenic. The FDA only researches complaints against the companies. Whole Foods does have a team that researches ingredients in the products. I am a Master Esthetician and recommend many of the products available there. They are much better than anything offered to the public at this time. If you would like to research ingredients yourself, Google non-comedogenic ingredients list or comedogenicity scales. You will find many sights that rate how irritating and pore clogging an ingredient is. Stay away from alcohol even if your skin is oily!

Organic products have no regulations in beauty products. There are some companies, I think aubrey and Origins, that have gone through the official process of approval (of a food product) for getting the label organic. This is a very costly and difficult process. There is a working group of natural skin care and cosmetics companies that has proposed new regulations and procedures for getting an organics labeling, but until then, it's the wild west out there. --NG
