Video: The Story of Cosmetics – What’s the FDA waiting for?

The Story of Cosmetics - What's the FDA waiting for?The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics produced an interesting video on the use of toxic chemicals in personal care products in the United States. To date the FDA has assessed only 11 percent of the 10,500 ingredients used in personal care products. The personal care and cosmetics industry is left unregulated with very little oversight.  Thankfully there are organizations like The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Database which allows consumers to find products free of carcinogens, fragrance or contaminants. Manufacturers can also construct individual safety assessments rating all their product ingredients at once, aiding in reformulation plans.

    I am commenting to let you know of the amazing discovery my cousin’s daughter developed checking the blog. She came to find a wide variety of pieces, not to mention how it is like to possess an excellent giving heart to get many others just know certain extremely tough subject matter. You actually did more than our own expectations. Thanks for churning out the important, trusted, informative and in addition cool thoughts on that topic to Emily.

    This video is highly informative. Reading labels became a top priority when I shop because of all the junk that is put into cosmetics.

    I agree that it would be nice if companies would just stop using this junk in products, but I passionately disagree with involving the government in this process. Allowing private industry to take over is the way to go. Asking the government to step in is a bad, bad idea. We’ve already allowed these people (the government) to tell us what is healthy and what is not. I can’t go to the store and buy a bottle of raw milk and many parents are forced to have their babies vaccinated even if there is a medical issue because government sees that as safety. THAT’S government. I’m sorry, but I don’t trust it. It’s the products and programs that are NOT FDA approved that I place trust in these days. I find that works quite beautifully.
