    I couldn't help but notice that a lot of the products recommended contain hyaluronic acid. I encourage you to research it and to determine whether or not your still comfortable using it (also in injectable form for joint pain, etc). I don't think it's a good idea for breast cancer patients, but that's jmho.

    Could you explain your concern,Leggo? EWG rates it as low concern for health issues and I haven't seen anything that raises red flags for me, so would be interested in more info, if you have time. Thanks a lot.

    Hopeful - Here's a link to another thread on the HA topic.

    https://community.breastcancer.org/forum/71/topics...

    I use it on my face... and I'm pretty neurotic about what I do and don't do. I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't ingest it, but I'm ok with it topically. And yes, I know that what we put ON our body is as important as what we put IN it. I can't explain why I'm okay with it before my moisturizer in the morning!

    Jenn - thanks for your input as well as the link to the other thread, which I had read and completely forgotten about. What a minefield this all is!

    Hi Divine.


    If you go on to Ewg and punch in face cream they will have a list , showing the ratings from A- F of the ingredients that's in each one of the moisturizes.


    Hope this helps out a little.
