Video: 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.
