Monosodium Glutamate Found In Skin Care Products

March 17/10

I was working last week on the television series called "V". Primping and styling and making sure every hair was in place for the actor interviews, with EPK (Electronic Press Kit). The main actress is Elizabeth Mitchell (aka Erica), Morena Baccarin (aka Anna), Christopher Shyer (aka Marcus), Lourdes Benedicto (aka Val), Laura Vandervoot (aka Lisa). Each interview took 20 minutes , so a few of us Makeup Artists started chatting about skin care and makeup products. We try to research any new skin products , hair products and makeup before we decide to use it on the actors. No actor wants extra chemicals on their face, hair or body. Many of the actors are wearing makeup for 12 hours or longer. Proper cleansing and prepping of their skin in important. Finding a chemical free face cream that is hydrating, yet healing and that does not leave a greasy residue is hard to find. I have developed a few hair and face serums that contain no chemicals, preservatives, and contain 100% Organic Botanicals.

The food and drug industry is deceptive about what is written on the labels of food, medications, and body care products. Did you know that there are more than 25 different names for MSG? 25-30 per cent of the population reacts to MSG (monosodium glutamate). Some side effects are migraine headaches, seizures, asthma, depression, hives and skin rashes. Read the labels before you buy. Avoid cosmetics, hair conditioners, eye makeup, tanning products containing these ingredients;

Zinc Glutamate
Glutamic Acid
Sodium Glutamate
Sodium Polyglutamate
Glutamic Acid
Polyglutamate Acid

100% Organic, Anti Wrinkle, Chemical Free, Water Free, Face Serum

I knew about MSG in food, but its also in makeup? I did not know about that. So is there any major brands we should avoid? What organic botanicals do you recommend?

Another (not so) related question: Do you use your Love My Lashes Extensions in Hollywood? Just thought I'd mention the results look really good.

Thanks for your questions.
All these chemicals in Makeup products are very scary. Just make sure you read all labels before you buy. I have a line of Organic Botanical Face Serums and Under Makeup Primers and Hair Defuzzing Serums. They are completely free of preservatives and no chemicals. I just finished a Pilot (TV Series) called The Hellcats, with the actress Ashley Tisdale and Alyson Michalka and Heather Hemmens. We used my Organic Hair defuzzing Serum on all their hair extensions. It smoothed out the fuzzies and left the hair shiny. You can order them from my website at:

Many of the Vancouver-based Makeup Artists are using my Eyelash Extensions glue on their actors. The glue was used to apply single lashes on Ashley Tisdale, Alyson Michalka, Heather Hemmens, and Elena Esovolova. These girls were playing the roles of cheerleaders. They were performing dance routines for hours. The lashes looked fabulous all day. And our days were up to 19 hours long!

Anti Ageing Beauty Tips said...

Woo...wearing the makeup for more than 12 hours per day. Skin cleaning and skin nutrition would be very important to keep young skin. Not only moisturizing face mask but also high quality serum are essential to prevent anti ageing skin.....
