Dr. Teri Dourmashkin was shocked when she found the results of a recent study: a number of skin care products that claim to be "natural" or "organic" have cancer-causing ingredients.

The Organic Consumers Association (OCA) revealed that ethoxylation - a process that provides mildness to harsher ingredients - produces 1, 4-Dioxane, which, according to the state of California, is a chemical that causes cancer. Because it is considered a by-product, companies are not required to list 1, 4-Dioxane on their labels. While this has already been revealed to be present in a number of conventional skin care products, this is the first time the toxin is shown to be in many self-proclaimed, but not certified, "natural" and "organic" products.

"People purchase 'natural' and 'organic' products because they feel these products will be better for their health," says Dr. Dourmashkin, who holds a Doctoral Degree in Health Education from Columbia University. "These 'natural' labels may mislead consumers into rubbing toxins on their skin."

For this reason, Dr. Dourmashkin founded La Vie Celeste Skin Care, Inc., (http://www.laviecelesteskincare.com) and is releasing a new line of anti-aging skin care products designed to take advantage of powerful antioxidants and other natural ingredients - without opening you up to the risk of overexposure to many harmful ingredients.

In particular, Dr. Dourmashkin uses only R-Lipoic Acid in both her face and eye creams. Research indicates that R-Lipoic Acid may have far superior anti-aging properties when compared to the more commonly used Alpha Lipoic Acid.

"By only using non-toxic ingredients, we make La Vie Celeste products safe for all skin types, including sensitive skin. Our products can help bring back a healthy, youthful appearance that can help boost a woman's confidence, with no harm done to her skin or her health."

La Vie Celeste's complete line of anti-aging products is available for immediate purchase at http://www.laviecelesteskincare.com, or call 1-866-921-9599. The products will soon be available at the New York City Fifth Avenue office of Dr. Raphael Kellman, M.D., who specializes in internal and holistic medicine.

"La Vie Celeste Day and Night Restorative face cream truly represents the next phase in cosmetics. I highly recommend it to my patients," Dr. Kellman stated.
