Over the years, I have seen women in industrial nations, as young as 35, having very leathery skin and hair. It is very common for women from the middle east, Asia and India, to have very vibrant skin and hair. I attribute it to women in Asia and India using natural products like Neem, Coconut oil, pure Aloe vera etc on their skin. Women in USA invariably are peddled “natural” products, (like the one below), that are purely synthetic.

The product below is being sold as an expensive “all natural” skin-care product in USA. Two ml of this product costs $145! Every single ingredient is a synthetic chemical.

  • EDTA is an industrial cleaning agent that cleans limestone.
  • I had never heard of Nylon-12 Fluorescent Brightener 230 salt. It is made by Sigma-Aldrich and it is “a unique, patented luminescent ingredient that emits and diffuses visible light to dramatically reduce the appearance of skin imperfections.” In other words, it does nothing to improve your skin. It scatters light so that it temporarily hides the blemishes on your skin.
  • Isononyl Isononanoate? Dr. An Goossens, University Hospital, Belgium  published a paper in 2008 that it was the latest cosmetic allergen.

I could go on and on…


Compare all that to this product, Curare healing gel. The only ingredients are pure Aloe vera gel, Sandalwood oil and Saffron. No preservatives.



The synthetic product on the top costs $145 for 2 ml, or $7,250 for 100 ml. The natural product on the bottom costs $60 for 100 ml. Amazingly enough, the synthetic product, which is very cheap to make, and makes your skin leathery, is branded and sold for 120 times the price of the pure, natural and wholesome “Curare healing gel”.
