If you've ever looked at the ingredients in your cosmetics, you might have shrugged, turned it over, and applied the beauty product to your face.
It's hard to imagine that there are dozens of toxic chemicals lurking in your beauty bag. Now you may be wondering, how can these chemicals be approved by the FDA?
According to Tina Sigurdson, a member of a nonprofit environmental research organization in Washington, D.C., beauty products are not approved before they hit the market. She also mentioned that the FDA does not have as much power as we think it does.
In Europe, more than a thousand scientifically-proven toxic ingredients have been banned from cosmetic products.
The problem is, none of these ingredients make any sense to us.
