Toxic side of beauty products

Author(s): Rodhey Sergio*

Cosmetics cause you to look good, but rather like all things too good to be true; the positive benefits of using such products can take a toll on your health. As per studies, the common woman uses 12 tending products each day containing 168 different chemicals. A recent study has revealed that the skin may absorb up to 60 per cent of the chemicals in products it comes in grips with. Another study, by the North-western University School of medication in Evanston, Illinois, has also revealed that complaints made against beauty goods over doubled from 2015 to 2016, with hair care products topping the list. Consistent with the university, there have been over 5,000 events reported to the FDA from 2004 to 2016, with 1,591 incidents reported in 2016 alone. Although many ingredients in makeup are safe, variety of common ingredients are often harmful to both the body and therefore the environment. In the US, there’s no law that needs the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to approve cosmetics. This implies that aside from colour additives, cosmetics can contain variety of dangerous chemicals with no regulation. When someone uses cosmetics, their skin absorbs chemicals, which might then enter the bloodstream. People may additionally inhale powders or ingest some cosmetics — by using lip products, for instance. Certain chemicals present in makeup and other cosmetic products can contain ingredients that researchers have linked to serious health concerns.
