As a beauty chemist, I have to say that beauty industry standards have come a long way. There used to be a time when ingredients were included in a formula without really knowing how it can affect our health.
The huge shift in the beauty industry is the direct result of consumers holding brands more accountable. Now we want to know, why is this ingredient present? Is it harmful in the long term? Is it safe for our families to use?
But while the industry is changing, the FDA has still yet to regulate ingredients of concern in cosmetics, like phthalates and parabens.
We need to keep holding the beauty industry accountable. And what better way to do that than to vote with your pocketbook? Check out these 5 organic, non-toxic, and above all, effective skin care products to add to your routine.
