What Do The Symbols On Your Beauty Products Mean?

What Do The Symbols On Your Beauty Products Mean?

If you’re reading this, it’s highly likely that you use some type of beauty product on a daily basis. Whilst these products promise to smooth wrinkles, highlight your cheekbones or give you fuller lips, have you ever looked at the finer details on the packaging? I’m going to hazard a guess and think that a large proportion of you haven’t or if you have there may be a portion of you that’s not 100% sure about what they all mean. It’s easy to ignore them, they’re usually a teeny tiny cluster of cryptic symbols printed at the back or on the bottom of a product.

It’s becoming more important than ever to know what we’re putting on our skin. Understanding these symbols is critical because no one wants to put something on their face that’s months out of date, right?

This blog post aims to demystify some of the key beauty care symbols that you see on the products in your makeup bag, beauty shelf or on your bedside table; it’s my simple, straight forward guide for what to look out for. Have a read and let me know your thoughts.
