How many beauty products do you use? Have you ever thought about who controls what is and isn’t in them? Probably not. While medicines are safety-tested, the FDA doesn’t look at beauty products. Other countries actively regulate unsafe ingredients in cosmetics —800 are banned or restricted in Canada & 1,500 in Europe, but only 11 in the US are prohibited. From blush to bronzer, bodywash to shampoo, what chemicals are you putting on your skin?
