The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has created a database of more than 79,000 such products ranked by level of hazard. They estimate that the unregulated cosmetics industry has only publicly assessed 11 percent of the 10,500 different chemicals found in everyday shampoos, makeup, moisturizer, deodorants, etc.
The Food and Drug Administration, which is charged with overseeing the industry, does not require any regulation of cosmetics before they come to market and, according to their site, the corporations behind the products are "responsible for substantiating the safety" of the cosmetics' ingredients.
Just a few of the limited number of known toxic ingredients include: known carcinogen formaldehyde (or "formalin"), commonly found in nail polish, shampoo, soap and hair straighteners; dioxane, another carcinogen, which is a byproduct of manufacturing; and lead, found in over 400 hair dyes and lipsticks.
Yes bitches! You'll have to buy untested stuff soon. Will they use humans instead?
