Cosmetics and skin care products that Americans use every day really do have a shocking number of chemicals and most are not even regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). So, how are we supposed to know which are safe and which cause terrible diseases, like cancer?
We scoured the most up-to-date published research from scientific and medical journals and did some deep digging on 28 of the most commonly used toxic ingredients in health and beauty products you may be using every day. Some are highly toxic, some are not actually toxic even though they have a bad rep, and some are a solid ‘maybe,’ so we laid it all out for you so you can decide for yourself.
